Question about 1983 Dodge Pickup

Open Question

Reverse just went out

1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4X4 - Truck wont go in reverse - shifts fine going forward in all gears - Is there a band in the tranny for reverse or do I need a new tranny. Tranny (automatic)has been running perfect - no issues no sign that it was going out. shifting great. - When I put the truck in reverse there was a clunk - and the truck wouldnt go backwards, put it in drive and drove it home.

i do believe they are different transmissions. i know my '95 chevy pickup 5.7 is a one year only transmission for correct fit. best thing to do is call local junkyard. they have great interchange guides and could tell you if it will work and what things may need to be changed

I had the same problem driving along and had to coast over to the side of the road. 92000km. all the clutches in the tranny were gone and all kinds of filings in filter and pan. the tranny had to be rebuilt at dealer for $1895 canadian Sorry for this news I also thought it slipped into neutral and wouldn't move no matter where I put the shifter

SOURCE: what kind of tranny will work to replace mine?

Yes. They should both be 46RE transmissions and the bolt patterns and the plugs should be the same.

if you mean the truck won't move when its in gear, i would definitely take it back to the shop, if the vehicle has high mileage, they shouldn't have recommended a flush, that is a common mistake, when you flush the transmission fluid out of a vehicle with high mileage, your flushing out all the friction material in the trans and then the trans won't work properly or at all. i work at a shop and unless the vehicle has had routine flushes, i won't do a transmission flush on a vehicle that has 80k miles or over that unless the customer insists, then i tell them there is a chance the trans could break down! but yea other than checking the fluid to make sure its full i'd take it back to the shop and have them pay for the tow and have them look it over in case they messed it up, then you shouldn't have to pay!

No Reverse and the fluid is dirty and smells funny.


Sounds like you blew out your reverse belt/gear in the transmission. Probably going to need a transmission rebuild/replacement.

Will not go into reverse.


Hi, have you checked the fluid level on this ? If the fluid smells burnt and is brownish in color most likely the first and reverse clutch has burned out, or the rear reverse band may need adjusted.

If your fluid is a mid to dark brownish color it may need rebuilt and if it smells burnt also.

The reverse and first gear shift work off the same clutch pack inside the transmission and off the reverse band as well. Also if by chance the reverse band spring is broken or the piston push rod has broken will cause loss of reverse too. The forward gears will still work but may get sluggish and take time to engage over time.

TRANNY WILL NOT MOVE IN REVERSE HAVE ALREADY ADJUSTED THE BANDS ACORDING TO SPECS ALSO NEED A DIAGRAM OF THIS PERTICULAR TRANNY ANY SPECIAL TOOLS ETC; IT SHIFTS FINE IN ALL FORWARD GEARS JUST WON"T...


When the transmission will not move in reverse this means the reverse apply band is worn out 95% of the time, since the bank lies deep inside the transmission the transmission must be torn down and overhauled to repair this, there is no in vehicle fix for this loss of reverse.

Reverse does not work all forward gears work fine however it does shift a little harder since reverse went out


Man, I have had that problem before in a camaro years ago and it was that the reverse clutches went out but, you could drive it forward and had to repair tranny.
