Always a good question, especially when considering a pick-up...(ie Towing) Most owners manuals suggest you leave the selector in OD...this assures the best mileage and cooling below, and above 55 mph...When towing ALWAYS disengage OD as the extra pulling capacity limits the proper transmission cooling. When not towing, it is best to leave in OD...Hope this helps.

I have a 1985 Dodge 150 ram pickup with automatic transmission when driving down the road in 3 gear it acts like its trying to down shift or even like its trying to lock up


First make sure you dont have an engine problem, such as a blocked exhaust or fuel filter, if engine performance is good ck your fluid condition fluid should be red, if real dark or burnt, that would indicate an internal transmission problem requiring it to be removed an rebuilt

How do you replace the interior door handle on a 1985 Dodge Ram pickup?


Sounds to me like its the bar that is attached to the outside door handle button. usually the 2 handles (in and out) operate using 2 different devices which are hooked to the door latch. The inside handed uses a cable and the out side uses push rods. You will have to remove the door panel first then you see what I`m talking about , be easy with the panel so you don`t break the plastic clips that hold it to the door though. I must warn you this is a real pain in the rear so unless your up for a challenge spend the money and take it to some one that does this type work........good luck..

1994 Nissan door panel how do I get the escuscion around the door panel off so I can remove panel


IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE CORRECT TOOL TO REMOVE THE CLIP THAT HOLDS THE HANDLE ON YOU CAN USE A HOOK TOOL AND PULL THE U CLIP OUT OF THE HANDLE. IT IS UNDER PRESSURE SO BE CAREFUL AND KEEP AN EYE ON WHERE IT MIGHT FLY TOO. YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE IT ALL THE WAY OFF BUT SINCE YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT IT I WOULD TAKE IT ALL THE WAY OFF.

1984 ram 150 225 engine 4speed starter?; at first


have you tried to roll the pickup and put it in first gear because you have to roll the pickup to a certain speed like 10 mph or so and then put it into first gear should start the pickup. If this does not work that you have serious engine problems with that old pickup and might be inside the tramsmission problem. So let me know if this works out

04 ram 1500 2wd. trans shudder at cruising speeds under 55? Doesn't during acceleration. Change filter and fluid to no avail.


That sounds like a torque converter problem more than likely. It sounds like it's trying to lock up (supposed to do that above 60mph) at a low speed. It will feel like a harsh shift or a shudder when it's trying to engage. Just to make sure I'm correct, drive it and listen to all the gears. When at 55-60mph after it has gone into it's top gear it will normally drop about 200-300rpm when the torque converter locks up.

My1992 dodge van stalls when i put it into gear sometimes.


Please check your motor mounts.
A broken, or even a worn motor mount or two can negatively pull on your linkages so that your van will do this.
Understand that if the motor and/or transmission moves loosely, other things can be affected, such as shifting gears and wiring.
God bless your efforts.
