Question about 1997 Dodge Ram
Start simple by checking your trans fluid level-start and allow to warm up to operating temp. pull trans dip stick and level should read within the cross hatch area. be sure your truck is on a level surface. while checking the level on the dip stick look at the fluid on the dip stick it should appear pink/red. there should also be no foaming/bubbles present. next check for a trouble code. '96 rams have the older obd-1 system inwhich you can retrieve a fault code by a sequence of turning ignition on and off (without starting) with your problem being so broad, it is hard to give you a good solution. the best advice i can give would be to obtain a repair manual like a haynes, or chiltons specific to the model year of your ram.
