Question about 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab

1 Answer

I have a 1997 ram 1500 5.9 2x4 and im missing 2nd gear it shifts at about 35-40 mph. When I changed my tranny fluid and filter I found what looked to me like one of the paper discs from a cluch pack now my question is why is it missing 2nd because of the disc or is there gunk in the valve body please help

Those paper disc are from you 2nd gear band. You will need to replace the band. The front band is the 2nd gear band. The first thing I would try is to adjust the band. If there is still some material left on the band adjusting it will get you by for a while. The adjustment for the 2nd gear band is on the outside of the case. If you want me to post the adjustment procedure, let me know and i will.

    Loosen the locknut. Tighten the center screw to 120 inch pounds. Back off the screw 2 turns. Hold the center screw while tightening the locknut.

Transmission will not shift into 3rd gear


no problems before the mud deal but problems after the mud deal means that the problems started in the mud
check for mud in connections , wires disconnected , harness problems, vacuum hose to actuator broken or missing
run the fault codes to help point to a problem area
the transmission is sealed so there will be no need to change the oil or filter--just clean and check everything that is mud affected

Try dropping the tranny fluid and changing the tranny filter and filling with fresh fluid. Sounds like the tranny is sleeping between shifts.

either the transmission bands need to be adjusted or the solenoid is bad and needs to be replaced. The first thing would be to change tranny fluid and filter.

You are going to need a transmission shop. Mazdas do not always throw codes. You have an early OBD transmission, which do not send out many codes.

97 concorde with 3.5 engine @ 40 to 45 mph it starts bucking .


Computer firmware needs upgrade

Take your car to a Chrysler dealer shop and have them update the transmission program.As your tranny wears it loses it shift point and stutters between 40 - 45 mph looking for the right gear to change to..Had same problem in 94 Concorde and 94 T&C minivan.Reprogramming tranny fixed both cars.
