Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD
(1) the transmission makes a sound when started cold. It sounds like a large vacuum leak but it goes away after about a minute. The sound is also heard under when pull hills.
(2) the transmission downshifts and into passing gear on hill way before it should.
(3) Engine has a miss when started cold and it does not have the power it should when warm.
Firstly, this is assuming that this is a 5.2 or 3.9 engine. The newer 4.7 modle would be totally different.
Sounds like a intake gasket issue(#3) intake gaskets and a belly pan gasket were quite common place one these modles.
(#2) The passing gear or kickdown is adjustable at the throttle body
(#1) This sound is quite likely normal for this truck. Have heard of many trucks sounding the same and at the time it was normal.
