    Every Truck seems to have different shift points in the gear selection process...
    I use the 'guage by ear' method...
    You will FEEL when to shift... if you have ever owned any manuel shifting vehicle...
    The only exception to this rule has been experienced in an upscale ride... which seems to handle the RPMs a little more easily , if you know what i mean. ( wasn't it Brittney Spears who tore her "02 Lamborguine to pieces because she didnt realise it was not shifting on its own from 0 to 110 MPH...).


    Try starting out in 2nd... and see if that feels good...
    OR... slam 2nd at the get go .... like you have a 700+ HP engine pumping for you and you are starting the slide into a sweet groove

I have an identical truck, 1991 Ram W150 with a 318 4speed bull low. They're called a bull low (bo low, granny four speed, farmers 4-spd) because theyre really only built for towing heavy loads, theyre a farm tractor transmission. You should never use first unless your towing a load, start in 2nd. I dont rev it too high when I shift mine. Best tranny for offroading by far, it really delivers the torque to crawl up tricky paths.

4 cyl. Auto trans. in limp mode. takin the shift solenoid out to re build it i fnd ripped wires. My question may seem should i re connect the first or cont with the shift solenoi


Unfortunately, you should have gotten the diagnostic codes for the transmission before messing with the shift solenoid. Most of those dodge shift issues are caused by input and output speed sensors.

What transmission is in my 1982 dodge d150 stepside its a manual 4 on the floor the vin is1b7fd14e4cs300594


Need number off trans Is it a top load shifter goes right into trans or side linkage. If it is a side linkage 3 speed with overdrive (4 speed) it is a A833/Overdrive 4 (no granny gear just normal 1st gear) Otherwise it's a top load NP435 or NP445 the last two are HD units Your truck is 2wd with a 225 (3.7L) slant six and your the 7th owner

My 91 dodge stealth is in limp mode how do i fix this transmission problem


Your car is in "limp"mode because the computer doesn't know what speed your doing,So it doesn't shift,
There are three possible reasons for this,
#1= input sensor faulty on transmission,
#2=output sensor faulty on transmission,
#3=speed sensor faulty on transmission,
you need to have the transmission codes read to know which one,Autozone checks codes for free.

99 dodge diesal will not shift past 1 st gear


sounds like the speed sensors. there are 2 of them. High and low speed. run about $20 each and are VERY common on dodge's. if you get a code 25 that is the problem.
