No forward or reverse: but the vehicle attempts to go forward when the shifter is placed in Reverse!

check the transmition oil level and if ok its maybe the transmition is broken

Auto trans. full of oil, will not move truck forward, only in reverse? whats my problem? truck is 1996 ram 4/4.

we see this a lot, you have either broken a froward planetary gear or have lost the froward line pressure in the transmission, you will need to replace the transmission, our shop replace 2 last week for the same problem....sorry

1996 dodge ram 1500 4WD shifts into reverse fine starts off in 1st and will not shift into 2nd gear

Could be as simple as low transmission fluid, but it can also be your shift solenoids or gonked up valve body. Star with checking your transmission fluid level. On that vehicle its pretty simple. There should be a yellow dipstick. Vehicle needs to be on and on operating temperature. Gear selector in P or N. Pull the dipstick out and see what it reads.

1996 dodge ram diesel no reverse

It could be a few different problems but the trans will likely need rebuilt. There is one solution that you can do with the trans in the truck. It might be that the reverse band is out of adjustment. You have to remove the bottom pan to adjust the reverse band. There is a test to see if its the reverse band. First do all the other gears work? Next drive it in Manual 1st. Does it have engine braking when you let off. If no, its the band.

No reverse

This is the first gear that usually goes. Change the transmission filter and fluid.

My tranmission was slipping and didnt go reverse so i changed my oil and filter now gears are passing but it still isnt going in reverse what could the problem be?

Low / Reverse band is likely fried. Remove the pan and valve body, check band adjustment per service manual. Or just pull the trans and rebuild it.

Truck will not shift out of low gear no prior warning at all

You either have a vacuum leak somewhere, or one of the sensors/switches down in the transmission is bad. It may even be that the torque converter lockup switch went kaflooey on you.

Here's the worst case scenario: have you pulled the transmission dipstick? It should be pink or red-pink in color. If it looks muddy and has flakes in it, and even worse smells like cat urine, your transmission has died on you.

Take it to a reputable shop and have them run a diagnostic on it. Western Auto should do that for free if you ask.

I just purchased a 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 Mega cab. When I shift from drive accross Neutral to Reverse, the RPMs go way up then down like I hit the gas pedal or something. It also does it when I go from...

on some of the older (1996-2000) Ram products, the transmission kick-down linkage crosses the throttle cable assembly. if someone has worked on that, it may be rubbing each other when you shift, causing the "bump" in RPM's.
