Question about 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab

92 dodge ram 150 not shifting

I have a 92 dodge ram 150 with automatic trans. It will not shif into 3rd gear untill you hit at least 50mph, take foot off gas. Anytime you drop below 50 it down shifts to 2nd and stays there untill you gain speed once again.... This has become a major headache when driving around town because it's 2nd gear everywhere. There is a sensor mounted on the side of the Transmission that I was told could be the problem? I think they called this a Speed Shift Sensor? The truck has well over 200k miles on it and this problem has just started. The fluid in the transmission is clean as well and shifts fine as long as you stay above 50 mph. Any suggestions that won't cost a broke man an arm and a leg?

Two things happen on the Dodge's. 1. the rear O2 sensor shorts out and meses things up. 2. the Inner seal on the Direct drum (3rd) shrinks and causes a delayed up shift.

    Check to see if the kick down cable is sticking.The cable could be parshally returning instead of completly returnly back to it's normal position.That is the cable for passing gear.

2000 Dodge Ram Laramie 1500 automatic transmission. Transmission does not shift from 1st gear to 2nd and 3rd. It does shift to reverse. Fluid is filled correctly. What could be the problem?


You have two sensors on the drivers side of your transmission. INPUT sensor and OUTPUT sensor. I believe the one you need is the INPUT sensor. Your check engine light should be on. If you can get it scanned your trucks computer will tell you what the problem is. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

2001 Dodge ram -2500 automatic. transmission slow to engage, months later started not shifting into 3rd gear, then 1 months later slow to engage into 2nd , now only 1st gear......


sounds like filter could be clogged, if it hasn't been changed in a while. you can try to replace throttle position sencer, it is like your old trans kinkenge system, only now, it is elect. it tells trans when to shift, like your speed sencer on trans doe's. both can make it act like it is.

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan will not shif into 2nd


Most likely the second gear section of the transmission has gone bad. There are 3 or 4 different gear sections or assemblies in an automatic transmission, when they go bad, they go bad.

My 1995 f-150 automatic will shift from 1st to 2nd fine but does not want to shift into third. Is this an electronic problem or possible internal wear? It has also been using auto trans fluid. Tonight I...


It depends it could be a bad servo for the 3rd gear trans or it could be that 3rd gear clutch is worn out
Only way to sepearte these problems is to have the trans pressure tested and distinguish the problems

My 97 dogde ram dose not like to shift into 3rd gear unless i take my foot off the gas. i was told I needed to change both solenoids. can I do this myself? Is this the problem?


Your description does not sound like solenoid issue.

I need to know what your vehicle uses for throttle position indication to the trans. IS there a rod from throttle body area to the trans? If so, adjust that to have slightly less effect.

If not, look for vacuum leaks or cracked hoses to trans...

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
