Metal shavings is a good indicator the trany needs rebuilt,( those metal shavings are from drive gears inside of trany)but the only way to know 100% is to take it in. sorry that happened to you....i know that's not the answer you where looking for.

1996 dodge ram 2500 auto transmission not shifting properly


Well, first do the service. Pull the pan down and look for metal shavings. If there is metal shavings your in for a transmission. If not, you may have a problem with one of the transmissions shift solenoids located near the valve body.
P.S. The Duramax has the Allison 1000 transmission not the dodge cummins and they are one of the best trannys on the market.

My trany wont go in revers and will not shift forward gears untill u let off the throtle a litle


Could be a need to rebuild transmission, but start with a simple transmission fluid change and filter change. If filter is plugged, could prevent the pressure build up necessary for automatic transmission to engage.

All of this assumes the fluid level is correct.

If you can do yourself, probably less than $20, closer to $100 to $150 at a shop, and they will drop the transmission pan and tell you it needs a $3000 rebuild because of grit in the pan. (all transmissions accumulate grit and fine metal shavings. There is a magnet in the bottom of the pan to attract any small shavings.)

Check the input shaft and output shaft speed sensors on the transmission. One is likely bad.

2.5 auto wont shift out of second just gives o2 code


It sounds like your shifting modulator may be bad. change it as well as your filter and fluid. You can save yourself some future problems by placing a strong magnet in the resevoir pan to collect the metal shavings that all transmissions produce.

1996 dodge stratus tranny whines when in forward gear(s); been doing so for the past year with no apparent problems. Fluid level ok, but fluid a little burnt looking. Shifts gears fine with rare...


The first and also the cheapest way to attempt to diagnose this problem, would be to replace the lube in the transmission with the specified type in the manual. You did say it looked burnt, but are there any metal shavings or something like that?

1996 Dodge Ram Transmission shifting problem


I had the same problem with my 96 Ram 1500. I thought I was going to have to pull it out and get it rebuilt or just replace it. That was at 134,000Km it's now got 210,000 and shifting like a dream. What I did to solve the problem was this, as follows:
1. No lucas transmission Fix makes things worse.
2. Get your self a new transmission filter and gasket
3. Grab Gunk transmission medic 12oz
4. Grab 7 Liters of Valvoline ATF+4 transmission fluid (Made for chrysler transmissions)
5. Drop the trans pan and drain all the oil, clean pan and magnet
6. start truck for 5 seconds and the pump will pour out another 1 liter
7. re-install filter, gasket and pan, then add your Valvoline ATF+4
8. Add, the valvoline, transmission medic and make sure you have the right level of fluid

That solved my transmission problems, instantly it was shifting better, I no longer had to let off the gas to make it shift. Now if you have large pieces of metal on the magnet, and it's totally covered in filings, you might want to consider rebuilding the trans. My magnet had usual clutch.         

Anyhow good luck, let me know if it did the trick for you.
