Question about 1999 Dodge Ram

1 Answer

My 99 dodge 2500 diesel does not want to shift up as it should, if I feather it at a slow exceleration it seems to do fine, but if i excelerate with any speed it does not want to up shift w/ out backing off the trottel. I have added some atf, as per the owners manual, it seems to have helped little. also I have installed a BD diesel performace trans. pressure increace device it has been on the truck for five years and no problems. the truck has 165000 mi. Thanks Jay

You need to have the tranny tested. Most tranny shops will do the diag for free.

SOURCE: 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?

SOURCE: 2002 dodge ram 2500 diesel

I'm no expert, but I am on my second Dodge. I have a 2004 Ram 2500, 125k miles on it. I traded in my 2001 1500 with 99k on it.
Your problem sounds like one of two things that happened to me. At 110k mi's it was not accelerating properly, particularly between 40 and 50 mph. It turned out my torque converter was going bad and I ignored it for too long and it's disintegrated pieces ruined my transmission. I recommend getting over to Aamco right away or to the dealer if you are still in warranty and have the TC checked out. The diesel is just too much torque for a torque converter on the automatic transmission, but manuals are too much of a pain these days. $2300 at Aamco to have the TC replaced and the tranny rebuilt.

The new problem I have now is when it acted like it was out of fuel and then wouldn't turn over after it died. My fuel lift pump (diesels have two of everything and the expensive one is always what goes) has gone bad and is currently being replaced, $700 part, plus another few hundred in labor.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: exceleration problems

this is either low fuel pressure or a defective Mass Air flow sensor

SOURCE: 99 dodge 2500 5.9 cummins fuel pressure at 3psi

The 3 psi is caused by a failed transfer pump. The problem the loss of could be the VP44 injection pump. This pump should be run at min 7psi. I had the same fuel pressure problem. I replaced my stock transfer pump with a FASS DDRP from www.usdieselparts.com. The stock pump is over $200 to replace and will fail again, sometimes right out of the box. The DDRP will supply about 15psi to the pump and is simple to install. I hope this helps.

If trans is a 4L60E, there is an internal filter that may need changing. It should be right behind the pan after you drop it. Be careful to catch the fluid when you drop it ...it goes everywhere.

Car not excelerating in drive


Listen when pulling away to hear if the transmission is shifting gears. It may be stuck in gear or your gear shift selector has moved and you are putting it in one of the gears and not Drive.
