OK, let me remember..........the code 753 means the solenoid INSIDE the tranny pan is bad. You don't have 1st or 4th gear, is what I was told, however, you probably WON'T even notice. I didn't. If you are at a stop, and get on it hard, you should be able to tell. If you drive normal, like me, and just accelerate gradually, you would not be able to tell that the truck is not hitting the 1st and 4th gear. You may not recognize a problem, just the check engine light. Your going to have to drop the tranny pan, replace the solenoid, and reinstall the fluid and the pan. The hardest part is, upon dropping the pan, if you don't know what you are doing, you can damage the other solenoids, and if you don't damage any, you may still have a hard time realizing which solenoid is the right one. It would take 1hour at, plus tranny pan gasket and fluid, etc., etc., for a total of about $120. Most transmission shop charge $100 for a transmission oil and filter service. The solenoid was about $20. It is not hard to replace, just unclip the wire harness and solenoid which will be an extra 5 min to the service time.

Dodges are so natorious for there tranny issues, you can try to have a tranny flush at a service center and it may prolong the evitable end of your tranny which seems to be going downhill. a fluid/filter on it may help some if you dont want to spend the $100 that most places chage for the flush, but you can also throw in the Lucus Oil tranny treatment, (availalbe at walmart or any auto parts store about $15) it has done good for me in the past...but from what you discribed it sounds more like the dodge flaw which is the beginning of the end....

Have a 2005 Dakota and the automatic transmission will not go into overdrive. Runs fine just a slight increase in RPM. Is it the Output Speed sensor or the SOLENOID/PRESSURE SWITCH ASSEMBLY


Bert, look in your manual for an over drive fuse/relay and check them as a first step, could be a faulty 3/4 solenoid. Take it into a good shop and have scanned, diagnosed and estimate for repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Overdrive is not working


There are a couple of things to check on the M-46 with Type P overdrive (I think yours is a type P and not a type J):

1) Check the electrical connections from the switch on the top of the gearshift knob to the solenoid in the transmission with a VOM. Switch depressed - 12 VDC. Switch not depressed - 0 VDC. If OK - you are getting power to the solenoid that activates the overdrive.
2) Test the solenoid. Either use the switch on the top of the gearshift or use a local power source (12 VDC) wired to the solenoid. Listen for a light click. If you do not hear a click; the solenoid is probably defective. Test with a known good unit.
3) If the solenoid is working (and you are sure it is working) then check the oil level of the overdrive unit. These units use Dexron II/III (check your manual for the correct oil type) and ensure the oil level is correct.
4) These overdrive units are a lot like conventional automatic transmissions and are constructed as such. Consequently, the home mechanic should confine troubleshooting to the solenoid and correct oil level. The Type P units are slightly more durable than the earlier type J units but in either instance rely on fairly rigorous maintenance.

My 93 dakota stated die'n at red light and then it wouldnt go into overdrive


A lot of vehicles will act the same, or even jump in and out of OD , not uncommon due to load on engine and if not running properly has to kick out of overdrive to maintain speed. Is your "check engine" light on, or have you scanned or cycled key to retrieve any trouble codes? You are aware that most parts stores will scan for codes free of charge ?

Auto transmission will not go into high gear.


Just went thru this on my 93 240. There's a solenoid inside the glove box, on the left side that needed replacing, with age it started getting fussy, and one day I had overdrive, and the same afternoon I didn't, then next day it was fine, then it wasn't, and so on...Most annoying driving around in 3rd all day....Anyways, the part was about 75$ at a dealer, and installation was about 5 minutes...Solved the problem just fine...Also have your mechanic check the shift cable....it needed changing at the same time as the solenoid...jda/boston
