1998 dodge ram 1500 5.9 360 overdrive kicks off and transmission overheats

when your trans hits 110 degrees C, it will do that by default. You MUST have the trans oil cooler checked for blockage, because this problem has led to seized parts on a few that I've rebuilt as a direct consequence. I have also installed auxiliary trans oil coolers on several Grand Cherokees which had this problem. high temperatures will kill your trans.

Got a p1740 code, idot light went off when... 2001 ram 1500 sport

There was a Technical Service Bullitin (TSB) out(TSB21-11-00) for this problem. It applied to 00-01 trucks with a 46RE built before 08/01/00 It had to do with replacing a pressure boost valve cover in the trans. That was after only performing some tests with the DRBIII first to rule out trany wear causing the fault.
TSB's are written for the dealerships by their respective manufacturers. They usually cover a problem that has occured enough times under warranty to warrant giving the dealership a heads up on the problem and how to fix it.

Here is a link to the TSB I posted:

Transmission code P1740

The transmition is slipping, dodge trucks are noted for their tranny problems, I just replaced mine ($2400)bearly over 100,000 miles on the truck. Watch the engine temp if you keep driving it. It may start to over heat. Get it to a reputable transmition shop ASAP,Some place that garentees/warentees their work.
As for the heat/AC I would check for vacuum leaks. Get either a Hanes or Chilton's manual for it and it will tell you how to check the system.
