2001 Dodge Ram 1500 3.9 V6 Seems not to go into low gear anymore - also, won't kick down into low even at low rpm. Anyone got a fix?


You may have a leak in the vacuum line which tells the tranny to switch gears, or it may have an electrical sensor instead of a vacuum line, Most new trannys are controled by electrical signals from sensors

P0455 P0442 codes 2001 dodge ram 1500


P0442 Means you have a small leak in your EVAP system. P0455 is a large leak.
The EVAP system prevents gas vapors from entering the air .
This code can be set by a leak in the lines or a clogged charcoal canister.
Most common reason is If you did not put your gas cap on all the way.
Hope this helps

Our 01 1500 Dodge Ram 2WD pickup's air conditioner kicks over to heat every time we break. Is this a vacuum problem?


Yes it is, but where is going to be the fun part. Under the hood on the left side of the engine. "passenger side" right near where the a/c lines go into the truck is a set of vacuum lines. If they trace to the left side of the intake manifold thats them. there is 3-4 joined together that merge into one and plugs into the manifold. Inspect these lines for cracks or a loose fit. The brake booster pulls alot of vacuum so a loose or cracked line is the culprit. I would also be willing to bet that since the a/c dose work, that the leak is under the hood. Hope this helps :)

P/S 2004 Ram


Without having a picture I couldn't tell you if that's the return line. Actually I would need a book on it. What I would suggest is trying to tighten it just a little. Don't overdo it cause that is easy to do. You can also loosen it and throw some thread tape on it and tighten it back up to see if that works. Good luck!

I received the following trouble codes on my 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 with the 5.9 liter engine: 12, 31, 56 I assuime 12 is a toss away... I don't understand the description for 31 and I cannot locate 56 in my...


code 31 is the evap system, the fumes from the tank, the computer can seal or vent the vapors, and so its telling you theres a big leak its not able to seal, could be a loose or bad gas cap or a broken vacuum line for the system or a vent or purge valve went bad,code 56 is not a code, double check . good luck,hope this is helpful.

I have a 2001 dodge ram 1500 4X4, the truck dies in reverse


I have no idea if this relates to your problem or not but a fairly infrequent problem with Jeeps exists in some models if the transmission bolts loosen. Our son's problem also involved backing up (only; forward=no problem) and having the engine cut out as sometimes die. On a Jeep forum, a poster warned that if the hard-to-reach upper bell housing bolts weren't tightened properly, they would loosen and cause this problem.

P0455=EVAP Emission Control System Leak (Large Leak)

Possible gas cap fix, cheapest try first.

Check the gas cap thoroughly, the P0455 code your getting for the large leak isusually a bad gas cap.

Also check the lines on the canister tank,right underthe passengers side of the cab, there are two lines on top that will rotand fall off or get loose enough that they will cause that problem.

You can also check on the passengers side fender well under the hood andlook at the elbows on the EVAP valve that has the hoses that run downto the canister tank, chances are one of them is loose or bad.

Best to get a factory service manual to have handy through all of this. Promanuals.net has complete factory ones for around 20 bucks. Here is a link 2001 Dodge Ram Service Manual.
