I have a 1996 dodge ram 1500 wiyh the 5.9 I am having problems with the transmission not wanting to go into drive sometimes it works and other times I only have reverse any ideas?

Yep you need to have the transmission rebuilt sounds like the bands and the clutches have worn out mine went bad on my 1998 ram at around 175000 miles. My cost for the rebuild was 1800 dollars .Good luck.

My reverse went out of my truck and I put it in neutral to push it backwards and its like I'm in drive andcan drive forward what can I do to fix it

If reverse is done and you can only go forward is it shifting out of first. If its not then you need the transmission rebuilt. That's what happened on my truck.

Bought a 98 1500 Laramie 2 wheel drive w transmission problems. runs fine in foward, but just doesnt move at all in reverse. any idea what the problem might be in the transmission?

common problem for the dodge, you have a bad or broken reverse band in the transmission, the transmission will have to be removed and rebuilt or replaced, check with your local salvage yard for a good used one could save you several hundred dollars.....GOOD LUCK

1996 dodge ram diesel no reverse

It could be a few different problems but the trans will likely need rebuilt. There is one solution that you can do with the trans in the truck. It might be that the reverse band is out of adjustment. You have to remove the bottom pan to adjust the reverse band. There is a test to see if its the reverse band. First do all the other gears work? Next drive it in Manual 1st. Does it have engine braking when you let off. If no, its the band.

1996 Dodge Ram won't start, compression is low

you need ti check your fuel pressure out and also do a no load test on your altenator because that might not be producing enough electrical energy to start the truck

What is the towning limit fora 94 SLT 1/2 ton V8

That info should be on a sticker in your door jam. The aftermarket intake won't make any difference as far as towing capacity.

Dodge Ram Transmission

You need to get your tranny rebuilt. The motor that is already in your truck is set up for that Tranny so i wouldnt change it at all as it would cost alot more then you need to spend to do it. . I also would go to Mr.Transmission as they do great work on trannys.
