Is there any check engine light on ? It sounds like your transmission is slipping ! Pre 2004 dodge trucks mainly had the the 46re trans wich requires service every 30k wich includes adjustimg the primary and secondary bands ! With my experience this never gets done and leads to transmission problems ! At this point the damage is done so you can try some things - first flush the transmission and drop the pan and have the bands adjusted and put in a new filter , refill with atf plus 4 fluid only and substitute 1 qaurt of fluid with lucas trans treatment and add greased lighting additive and drive for several days ! I did this on a dodge truck i bought that was having problems and it fixed the majority of the problems a computer update fixed the remainder of the problems and she has been running perfect since !

When was last time trans fluid & filter was changed? Should be done every 30k (sooner if you do any towing) I'd start there.

    The fluid and filter was changed about two week's ago...Didn't change a thing...

  • jerry8807 Mar 18, 2011

    Changing the filer is only part of the service ! When you changed the filer did you adjust both bands ?

  • spidys1fan Mar 21, 2011

    no..i didn't....truthfully i really don't know about transmissions except there a pain int he back side...

1988 chev trans takes high rpm to shift from 1st to 2nd and some times it wont down shift when you slow down and hit the gas again


Check the adjustment of the transmission T.V. cable. Sometimes they also stick. Try driving it at 30. Shift to Neutral, stab the gas pedal to the floor quickly a couple of times. Then shift back to drive. Then see if it shift normal.

RPM is over 400 rpm higher than it should be with no gas pedal.


Could be several things.. I would suggest replace the neutral safety switch, all O2 sensors and fuel and air filters, PVC valve and if needed plugs n wires..
The issue could also be a bad throttle body.. Should be a good idea to get it hooked up to a diagnostic machine - get the codes and then you will know more of what you are dealing with..

Have a great day !!

My legancy 2000 automatic gear shifts at ruv 3400 rpm .is it normal?


depends on gas pedal position,the lighter you are accelerating the earlier the trans should shift,if it always hangs on in gear get it looked at...as it can shift at redline (5000-6000 rpm,if you hold the gas peadl down fully).

I installed new intake monifold gaskets because the bottom one was sucking air in and my 1996 dodge intrepid 3.5 liter engine would run at 2300 RPM'S. After changing the gaskets the car is hard to start...


Take it to bits again and check the gasket you put on and all the other gaskets as it still sounds like you have air sucking and a blockage somewhere else so check out all parts you done and the parts you dident

Wont shift past 2nd


Find your throttle valve cable attached up near cable from throttle pedal ,it's the one that runs down behind toward transmission. With engine off in park,park brake on, Have someone push gas pedal to the floor & observe that cable, to make sure it is retracting properly when pedal released. Now get under & watch where that cable attaches & watch it while doing the same with gas pedal. The lever that it attaches to should move freely & rotate one way when gas pedal pushed, and should return all the way the other way when pedal released. Sometimes that linkage or cable will get seized, and not return fully, which will hold transmission in lower gear. You can use your hand to make sure it is returning all the way if necessary, and if needed, apply penetrating spray to loosen it up, then apply something like white lithium grease to coat it after it's unseized, to prevent repeat in near future.

1999 dodge ram delayed and erratic shifting


ummm i would say you need to adjust your trans shift cable, check your fluid level, and the problem i had with my dodge was similar to yours... it was my 3rd-4th actuator spring, it had broke and couldnt hold the pressure to keep it in gear

one unit that operates ratio changes and is connected to the engine is that vacuum operated actuator on the transmission
it is possible that that unit is failing , vacuum hose is leaking and that will cause ratio changes as the vacuum varies
run the fault codes to check for wiring problems or VSS or TCM problems as well
