Sounds like it could be gear box issues. Overdue for service I expect.

Why does my 2005 dodge ram 1500 3.7 liter only goes up to 4000 rpm when i reve it up and it starts to sputter when in park?

its the rev limiter. its suppose to do that when the engine has no load or the vehicle is stationary so you don't break the engine. now when your moving and it happens check fuel filter, fuel pump, air filter,etc.

1988 Dodge Ram 50 Automatic shifts into park reverse and neutral. But physically won't go into drive gears.

Disconnect shift cable from transmission linkage and try to manually put transmission in drive gear ( make sure wheels chocked/park brake on ). If transmission goes into drive gear, suspect a shift cable or shifter assembly problem. If you can't manually shift into drive gear by hand with cable disconnected, suspect internal transmission/shift linkage issue

I 2013 Dodge Ram truck which only has 20,000 miles on it cannot shift at the column to drive park reverse its stuck what could be my issue

There is a switch on the brake pedal that wont let the gear selector move unless the brake is pressed. If the switch is broken, loose or not connected, you can not shift it out of park.

2001 dodge ram1500 /accelerates slow even w/peddle to the floor

How many miles on that rig? The 4.7 motor is a great motor.

Sounds like a fuel starvation issue. Might also be a trans issue. Does the trans seem to be shifting properly?? Could it be starting in 2nd gear which is the "limp mode" for Chrysler trannies?

97 Ram 1500 over revving until hitting 45 mpm

It sounds more like a cable or linkage sticking, and yes it is transmission related, sort of, just because of the high RPM before shifting. Spray all your cables good with lube, at throttle linkage, and get under and look where cable & linkages are at side of transmission, and spray them good too, and work them back & forth, to try & loosen them up. Truck shut off & in park when under it eh.!
Then work shifter back & forth, gas pedal to floor & up etc, to try & loosen things up. That may just cure your problem.

1999 dodge ram delayed and erratic shifting

ummm i would say you need to adjust your trans shift cable, check your fluid level, and the problem i had with my dodge was similar to yours... it was my 3rd-4th actuator spring, it had broke and couldnt hold the pressure to keep it in gear
