The overdrive gear in the transmission is known to move on the output shaft making overdrive hard to shift into & eventually not at all

    Overdrives do not fail on the New Venture 5600 6 speed tranny only the NV4500 5 Speeds. Most likely the detents in the top of the shift tower are broken or are dirty you would have to remove them to ispect to see.

Take it back

Did you not test it out--- before paying
& driving off?

Maybe the trans has some internal wear,
from the previous owners habits

I am going through this now my 2000 ram 3500 always had a problem with reverse

I chocked it up to a quirk of the transmission! But my mechanic found out that they only placed this trans in late 1999 and early 2000 trucks first years the 6 speed was offered. It comes with a smaller clutch and synchronizer that are no longer available unless you find a dealer with old stock sitting on a shelf. I am having to updated my cultch and am having to replace the gears that will allow the new type synchronizer to work this in just a about ½ the price of a new transmission BOHICA/FUBAR

So just get ready for a shock if you need to replace synchronizer rings

Dodge Ram Truck wont shift into park or reverse


The parking pin inside the transmission has sheared and is interfering with reverse as well. I would locate a reputable transmission shop.

Transmission- 2001 Dodge ram 2500 diesel 4X4


I have a 2002 Dodge Ram that doesn't like to shift into 2nd when flooring it from a Stop. Imagine if you were to floor the gas in neutral, the engine REDLINEs and the engine governor kicks in to keep the RPM from blowing the engine......while stuck in first Gear. If i let off the gas, it goes into 2nd fine. I have replaced the Speed Sensor on the transmission ($18) and it seemed to fix it for one day. After 200 miles, its doing it again. ANybody have legitimate answers in here? Its only got 60K miles..wtf?
