It may be a problem within the transmission. The solenoid inside the transmission may just need cleaning or may need replacing. Check wire wires and cables that are loose or may have gone bad.

It can also be a problem with the engine. Since the transmission is directly dependent on the engine's activity, it may be a crank sensor problem or just the timing especially if you notice rough or you are hearing not the usual idling.

It would be best if you can have a scanner run through the system to check for error codes. The error codes will tell us the part which may have issues without having to open up the engine and do a trial and error.

    It should retain the error code unless it was reset by bad wiring or it was done manually.

    In some models the engine light would blink. The blinking would tell you the error code. Ex: on-on pause on.... it tells you that the code is 21 or 02 sensor problem.

What could be causing my car to shudder or shake intermittently when it is in gear?


Have someone check your transmission fluid level. Probably low, so the shifting up and down is compromised.

02 xterra downshift shudder/OD on all the time


The first thing you should have done is to have all the transmission fluid flushed, this may be due to worn out fluid friction modifiers causing torque converter clutch chatter.

P1782 - P/ES Circuit Out Of Self Test Range.
Means that 2-4 pressure switch sense circuit failure. It basically means that the transmission solenoid pack needs to be replaced.

The pressure 2/4-OD Pressure Switch is part of the pressure switch of the transmission. The pressure switch are located in the solenoid assembly. The switch provide input information to the Transmission Control Module (TCM). The switch will inform to the TCM is pressure exist in a specified hydraulic circuit. the TCM uses this information to verified that the solenoids are working or not.

1997 dodge ram 3500, it shudders in OD


Hey, I also have a 98 ram with the cummins and what you are talking about is when you are pullin hard in overdrive the trans is working to hard causing the shudder, when this happens back off the throttle and get back on the throttle to allow the trans to downshift. If you dont it will break the overdrive gear. There is nothing wrong with the trans it is just that it is shifting to early and bogging down causing the shudder.

Goes into neutral and then shifts hard into 1st on slowdown


It sounds like your input clutch seals are rolling. Is the check engine light on. It could also be the pressure control solenoid could be causing the problem aswell

Why did Check engine light come on along with blue OD light?


well many vehicle will go into fail safe mode when there is problems with communication between modules or the engine light comes on this prevents the vehicle from damaging its self it will run on pre set parameters to protect its self but i no it doesnt feel that way it can be very harsh the next step would to be pull the codes with a scanner because many codes and problems can cause this

O/D ON indicator


the light is just a OD indicator as u said, and the switch does operate the overdrive on/off function, many cars and trucks have this OD dis-able to aid in towing, using OD while towing can overheat the transmission, as far as the check engine light goes it can be caused by over 100 different malfunctions, have the system tested for the trouble code that is stored when the light comes on, Kragen auto and others do this for free.
