If you go under the truck you will find a 3/4" pipe plug on the side of the trans case, revoce it, fill the trans to just below the threads of that plug, use your pinky to check the level..

I changed the fluid and filter on my 1997 dodge 1500 and the same day the transmission stopped shifting gears....what could be the problem?


it is possible you either did not add enough fluid, added too much fluid, or the fluid you replaced the old with was the wrong type for the trans. was there a problem with the trans before you replaced the trans fluid? make sure that when you change the trans fluid you are working on a flat surface. if you pull/check the dipstick while the truck is on jack stands, or otherwise elevated, you reading will be off. and you may find that after pouring in the new fluid and setting the truck down to test drive and circulate the new fluid that you have put too much fluid in the pan. this will show up as bubbles on the dipstick, or fluid coming out of the fill tube. also make sure the fluid you use is the right type. chrysler transmissions require different fluid than ford, or chevy. though you did not specify if your trans is manual, or automatic.

1997 dodge ram 1500 (360) transmission.


My 95 Cummins Dodge had the same problem and adding "Lucas Transmissiion Fix" cured it completely and permanently.

Thier claim is as follows:


Lucas Transmission Fix is a non-solvent formulas that stops slip, hesitation and rough shifting in worn transmissions and completely eliminates most seal leaks. Use in any transmission for preventative maintenance.Use also in light duty manual transmissions to increase shifting ease and transmission life.
Key Benefits
  • Contains no solvents
  • Lowers operating temperatures and stops foaming
  • Can be added to existing fluid without draining any out
  • Effective in an extremely high percentage of cases

1997 Dodge Ram 1500 ( transmission )


I also have a 97 Ram that did the same thing. First thing to do is add a trans cooler and remove the rubber lines at the radiator. If you feel the truck takes off in 2nd gear you need to replace the transducer and governor pressure switch inside the trans pan on the pass side of the valve body.
