Do you mean the shift lever itself won't go into the R position, or it doesn't move backwards when in R. I've never owned a Dodge so I'm not positive on the shift pattern. At any rate, you should first check that the linkage is correctly adjusted. Then you might consider doing a tranny service (drain tranny, remove pan and clean it, replace filter, fluid etc.) For some reason the transmissions in the '90's - early 2000's were notoriously poor products with a high failure rate. If you get a Chilton/Haynes repair manual that covers the make/model/year of you truck it has troubleshooting tips, and how to do the tranny service.

SOURCE: Transmission over heating

sounds like a plugged trans cooler.have it checked for proper flow should be less than 10-15psi if so it needs to be replaced. check to see if the trans cooler lines go into the radiator. if so you will either have to replace the radiator (trans cooler is part of radiator) or buy and install an aftermarket cooler

Show me how to adjust bands on a 2000 dodge durango


They are adjusted one time,brought down tight
on the drum & then backed off the 3/4 turn or
whatever is required,then nut locked tight

The bands do not wear enough in 100,000 miles
to require further adjustment

Also,band adjustment is not a fix for any trans
problems,the apply servos can get hard rubber
seals & deposits on the pin etc,so forget it

If you turn the bolt the wrong way,then the parts
fall inside the pan & removing it is no guarantee,
you can get things back together without pulling
the trans

    2000 dodge ram 1500 slt ext cab automatic transmission shifts in first gear but takes a long time

    Lack of info, does it take a long time to **** to second gear, or second gear to first, either way you have possible governor pressure issues, or 2nd gear band adjustment, whats the rest of the shits like, throttle cable adjustment, drop the trans pan and look for debris, if you need more help, more info is needed from your end. GOOD LUCK, RDJRP
