    i have a 97 ram with the same problem. I took it to the dealership to get it checked. the mechanic said it was the solenoid and a pressure sensor, i found the solenoid but cant find the sensor any suggestions?

    My truck started with a "whine noise" then it started to "slip" to the point it wouldnt move.. so long story short. Everytime I came to a stop because it was like it was in nuetral..I put it in either reverse, 4 wheel drive, overdrive off or on i just kept mixing it up and it made it home 60 miles later and 3 hrs. it helps to let it cool down. Although the trans was'nt hot?? Fixing to go check my trouble codes! great site to have if ya own a 94-97 Dodge.http://dodgeram.info/Engine-Gas/OBDI/pcm...
    if you can help me.. email sullivanjim80@yahoo.com

I also have a 97 Ram that did the same thing. First thing to do is add a trans cooler and remove the rubber lines at the radiator. If you feel the truck takes off in 2nd gear you need to replace the transducer and governor pressure switch inside the trans pan on the pass side of the valve body.

I found that my lower transmission line had a faulty check valve in it and it would drain my torque converter.

Also could be your transmission filter is dirty and need to be changed and flushed with new fluid (8 quarts)

Its the lower cooler line coming from the radiator to your tranny..there is a check valve in the line. Make sure you relace the entire line not just the rubber part.
