I have a 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 with an automatic transmission the transmission hunts from first to second when I let off the gas it shifts in the second and drives normal after that but this is what happens...


HOt engine, or cold engine or both???????????????
Gas or Diesel? what engine>? 4 speed A/T right?
first off the CEL only glows for smog fails, many other DTC errors
all important , only show up on a real scan tool. even a $9 tool this old car.
is it the tranny or the engine hunting, that takes, skill to know.
any mech , can tell you ,easy.
ENGINE:
does the engine run prefect , get to 180F + temp and hold?
does the enigine hold 800 RPM steady hot idle in park.
then select Drive, foot on brake pedal and still hold this normal idle spee?d. , yes, then good.
this hunting, i cant understand that.
does it upshift to all gears, correctly?
and down shift.?
and does it not hold one gear. at cruise? flat ground.
does it not down shift with fast deep throttle.
does not down shift on hills.
exactly when does it hunt, you doing what?, in drive, im guess.
tell driving conditions, and right foot actions.
steady foot.
flat ground,
accel?
decel.
hills.
coasting?

my FSM has over 50 A/T symtoms. the A/T is complex.
a driver (mech) will do many tests driving to see what works and what dont.. (both)

BTW2: i never pay any attention to any CEL lamp, I SCAN all cars.
ALL.
The newer the car , the more DTC's , the key is to NOT MISS THEM.
and win.

Your A/T may be electronically shifted, and if yes, it's got a TCM
(either the TCM box or is part of the PCM )
either why. ,make sure the TCM never sees errors, ever.
there are many inputs to any TCM and all must be correct or the tranny will shift wrong, or go to limphome mode.

what tranny,????
here is the wiki.
Transmissions for the Ram
  • A500/42RH-RE lower geared light duty applications found behind the 3.9 L V6,
  • A518/46RH-RE for more heavy duty applications found behind the 5.2 L and 5.9 L V8 engines.
  • A618/47RH-RE for heavy duty use behind the V10 gasoline and Cummins diesel engines. The 47RH was used in 1994 and 1995 model years, while the 47RE was used from 1996 through 2002.
NV3500 and up are manual trans,
so by wiki I see all 3 are electric, SCAN it now , with a full scan tool.



each tanny ending in "E" is a TCM shifted "E"lectronic shifted trans.
so post what you have, as i can not guess.

my guess is 46RH

1994 aerostar van , automatic trans , will not shift after sreering column was worked on


Check out the brake pedal lights. If the van is stuck in Park, a switch on the brake pedal lever sends a signal to the release. The brake lights probably do not work and you are missing this signal.

Your foot needs to stay on the brake pedal in order for the shifter to work.

Is it modulator valve, or other?


The vac modulator only assists the transmission in knowing when to shift up.
If the engine oil pressure gauge is acting wildly, it could be the sensor or the oil pressure could really be going up and down.

Have miss at idle and when the trans need to down shift


You.ve got me confused!!! You have a miss at idle, but at idle the miss stops, and when you step on the gas the miss stops. It sounds to me that the miss is stopping under all conditions - so what is the problem?

1994 camaro Z28 Convertable automatic. When driving when you release the gas pedal there is no engine braking. Engine will return to idle instanly. At all RPM's. Transmission shifts smooth during...


I'd hazard a guess that the torque converter disengages from "lock up" when you lift your foot. This would let the engine instantly idle down, and would produce no braking effect from a closed throttle.

Try driving it (at a lower speed) in direct, rather than overdrive, and see if the same thing occurs, or if you get the expected braking effect when you lift your foot off the throttle.

  • does the engine miss? bumps is a rythmic pattern?
  • an engine miss will appear to diminish at higher rpm due to centrifical force.
  • other possible problem broken or flat motor mount.
  • is the idle rough in reverse?
  • if not
  • open hood
  • start engine
  • Left foot on brake (hard)
  • start engine
  • watch engine as you select drive
  • still holding brake with left foot / throttle gas with right foot
  • does engine dramatically move?
  • if so replace motor mount on offending side
  • if not possible engine miss or transmission problems

Grinding in and out of 4 wheel drive


You say 'new' truck, 09? or new used? I have had 3 Fords, 3 w/ manual trans. case, if you go into 4x4 Low range, you must come to a complete stop before shifting the trans. case to 4x4 mode, and I always put trans (automatic) in neutral before slipping into 4x4, it engages smoothly, no grinding. 4x4 high range can be put in while moving, but I would let off the gas pedal, shift to 4x4 high range, then resume accelerating. If there is any grinding going on doing it as above, something isn't right. Check the trans. case fluid level also, to make sure that's not an issue.

Wont shift past 2nd


Find your throttle valve cable attached up near cable from throttle pedal ,it's the one that runs down behind toward transmission. With engine off in park,park brake on, Have someone push gas pedal to the floor & observe that cable, to make sure it is retracting properly when pedal released. Now get under & watch where that cable attaches & watch it while doing the same with gas pedal. The lever that it attaches to should move freely & rotate one way when gas pedal pushed, and should return all the way the other way when pedal released. Sometimes that linkage or cable will get seized, and not return fully, which will hold transmission in lower gear. You can use your hand to make sure it is returning all the way if necessary, and if needed, apply penetrating spray to loosen it up, then apply something like white lithium grease to coat it after it's unseized, to prevent repeat in near future.

Voltage intermittent, engine missing at all speeds, affect auto trans. shifting, kills hot or cold


The charging system, pedal, and sensors have been checked. The trans. problem and missing problems were the original problems and when my mechanic finally sent me to Chev. none of the problems " choose to show themselves." I should know on Mon. if my mechanic has solved the problems with the greater number of symptoms. Keep me in your files. More later-  Bill
