1998 Dodge 1500 Transmission Wont Shift Fix




What do you think about this video?

William Klug: what torque converter ? magnetized , overdrive or normal? how can you tell?

warren d: What Was It Doing to decide this , I was driving mine then wouldn't go let sit for 30 min shift in reverse going to try drive here in few 

Carlos Leyva: I will post a video of mine and see if you can tell what is wrong. please.

Tim Vincent: I have a 1999 Durango 5.2 with the 44re transmission, I've had the pan off and saw these solenoids. I did a filter and fluid change, upon first test drive it was fine, however after work, it shifts first and second reliably no slippage, but wouldn't go into third or overdrive, before this, it would go first second then third if I'd run up the rpms get up to around 45 then go from D to N to D real quick while lifting off the accelerator then it would grab third. Sounds like these solenoids are exactly my problem. however with that being said, I have a friend who is an expert transmission guy who I learned has a source to buy transmission parts whole sale (used to have mechanic shop in town) I learned I can get all the transmission parts for a whole rebuild and upgrade to 46re guts for the same price as these solenoids by themselves. I think I'm going to have it gutted and redone...

networkingthefuture: I have 98 5.9 dodge ram automatic trans, getting a p0740 code! Torque convert clutch circuit/open. Could this be caused by needing to replace the parts you do in this video? Most of the time the truck is shifting fine, but sometime it just refuses to shift into 3rd(at least I think it's 3rd. After pulling off the road, putting it in park and then shifting back into drive it is fine.

mountandhang: I have a 97 dodge ram. I have to put it in 1st then bump it to 2nd and then drive but once i slow down or stop it pops out of gear then i have to do it all again. Would this fix the problem?

raptorrider99ify: I have the same truck, mine wont start rolling in first unless I put it in first on the column, got code p0753 not driving it at all replaced that sensor and solenoid thanks to ur video it was really easy. any other suggestions saying solenoid a

eltopo dejalisco: Hey I got a 01 dodge ram 1500 sport v8 5.2l A friend of mine changed the transmission fluid and the governor solenoid and at the beginning start to shift smooth and know to shift from.first to second it goes up to 4000rpm Do you have any idea what could be the problem

CarPhonix CarAudio: Was this on the 46RE Trans? What did the parts cost you at the dealer? Would the parts that you showed be the same for my 1998 Dodge Ram 5.2l 4 X2? Thanks for your help! 

wwhs98: I just did this to my 1998 dodge ram 1500 v6 with the 42RE transmission. I was having the same problem. Only thing I still have is that I have to let the truck warm up, if not, it still has problems shifting out of second, If I let it warm up for 5 minutes, it shifts great. I just bought the truck cheap, the previous owner did not took good care of it, so I can expect some flaws. But thanks for posting the video, 

Darren McMackin: Right on man...thanks!

desmond griffin: Hey man just did all this but didn't adjust the front band , now the truck is downshifting really weird and hard ? Any ideas what's going on. It wasn't like this before 

tedskam: thank you. good helpful video.

ShaftDrafter97: So I got the parts and installed them and it worked fine...... 3 days later it sorta doing it again. Any help??

eltopo dejalisco: It was ok on fluid and know it doesn't shift at all I guess I'll be taking it to a mechanic 

Jlnowland1: How can I tell w witch trans I have and were can I get the sensors? 

deric Cormier: I have a 97 ram 1500 and my problem is it stays in high gear going up hills and does not want to stay in on straight highway, seams like it does it when it gets warm, does this sound like the same problem, yours stays in 2 and spins out, im just not sure if they would be the same issue, thanks for the video

2012nugget: Running your tranny low on fluid is a bad thing. It may have caused damage beyond solenoid s.

jbwooten: Mine only has this issue in the rain. Is it the same thing or something possibly simpler?

Crego Mon: hey I got a 97 dodge ram 1500, it runs fine starts fine just hard time shifting to 3rd and 4th, it high revs but shifts at times and other times it wont shift at all, you think this might be the problem?

Slichman500: I got an 86 gmc sierra that was shifting fine and now the column shift wont put it back in park.. Would those 2 solenoids be causing that problem or would adjustments just need to be done??

twinbaby1987: How can u tell if that the prob I have a 1997 dodge truck and when I hit the gas real hard it's stays stuck in 2nd until I release off the gas then it shifts I have a video on my page on what's wrong to show u more specific 

jessiyoung87: i have a 1996 dodge ram 1500. the other day i helped a friend pull her car out of the mud and now my transmission is acting up. sometimes it slips going from dead stop to taking off and is really hard to shift from 2nd to 3rd i have to manually shift from 1st 2nd to drive to get it to shift what do you think my problem is 

ahrimshood: ihave a 2002 rt durango, please let me know if this fix will fit. the durango revs out arround 4500-5000 rpm before itwill shift to 2nd and rarely shifts into 3rd. oh and i just did a fluid change and filter no metal shavings or clutch material

E H: Hi, I have a 2000 model Ram 1500 with automatic over drive transmission. My truck just started having problems yesterday. My transmission will shift into every gear except for overdrive. so once I get over 45 mph the rpm are right at 3k... its down shift back into 2 and 1 as I slow down, up shifts again as I speed up until its time to shift into over drive. I also engage the over drive switch on the shift and no change. do I need to replace the governor pressure switch and solenoid or do I need to change out the over drive locking solenoid.... thanks

JLGJA: I have 97 5.9 dodge ram automatic trans, I have a p0740 code! Torque convert clutch circuit/open, is this what the bideo is about? Please let me know, went to 3 different places they want me to replace the transmission for $3500.00 I dont have the money, my truck is running perfect is just sometimes 3rd speed takes a few seconds to work, let me know please I will appreciate!

Bink Watts: I have a 2000 Dodge I bought that has tranny issues. It is hard to get into gear, forward or reverse, but when it goes in, it will do fine. It makes a grinding noise at times. I don't try to drive it at all, I don't want to cause further damage. The shifting link appears to be adjusted properly. When the tranny works, it shifts great, that's why I think it may be something as simple as this. Do the problems I'm having sound like the problems you were having?

Savu Macias: I just got a 99 dodge ram 1500 regular, on the 1st gear it takes long to shift to 2nd & when it shift to 2nd I press the gas to go on but it shifts back to 1st & continues there until I do the same thing let go of the gas to shift to 2nd once it shift to 2nd I continue very slowly which I don't like, can it be the sensor ???

Aaron Cooper: I have a 1999 Dodge ram 1500 5.2L 318 4x4 and it starts fine and shifts into drive and accelerates....but the RPMs tack up to about 4000 and the transmission still has not shifted......any ideas what it nay be or what I need to do to fix it??? I would sure appreciate any feedback at all. Thank you.

redkevlar: Thanks for the video. Very very helpful. I replaced the solenoids, installed a drain plug in the pan, and adjusted one of my sloppy bands as you instructed. Tranny shifts perfectly now. Thanks man!

Braxton Sorensen: I have a 2000 dodge cummins wont shift unless u let off of the gas pedal then it shifts fine is it those solenoids 

Josh Turner: This was a good video to show these solenoids. I realize it's old, but there is a mod you can do to allow for better flow to the first solenoid you removed. You open up the channel around the screens with a 3/4" drill bit. As it's designed, the fluid can only get to a small section and if one of those screens gets partially clogged, it will diminish fluid flow. I read about it on the dodgetalk forums.

jared squires: your video just saved a guy from getting punched in the face.........thanks....

Omer Hadzic: Great job. Thanks

Ruey Diehl: Did you have any transmission codes for these solenoids?

ekoms777: thank you very much for the video! 

Maxwell Higgs: this was very help thank you!!!!

Daron Welch: I have a 1995 dodge ram 1500. Transmission was running fine and out of nowhere, it doesn't jump in gear like it used to. It also doesn't shift into 3rd gear like it unless I let off the gas, then runs fine after that. Do you think I'm having the same problem? Are solenoids in the same place as the 98? It also make like a grinding noise when I put it in gear!

sweet peach: hi i was wondering if you could help me out i have a 1998 dodge durango and when i first start to drive it its slow to pick up speed then when its run a little bit it smooth out but when i slow down some times then try to go up a hill it cant pick up speed fast enough and it make a loud grunting noise what could be wrong with my truck

Rick Lasee: Sweet video bro. You get 5 stars from me. Only took me 2 hours after watching your post. Parts were $300 with a new filter but that's a lot cheaper than any shop would have charged me. Most of them couldn't even tell me if that was the problem. Thanks and have a Merry Christmas! 

cpotter1565: Thanks for Posting this video. Would this repair be the same for a 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 with the Cummins Diesel??? Thanks.

Colby Wetzel: I have a 1999 dodge ram 5.9 360 146,000 miles and my tranny is like new and believe me I like to play in the mud a little bit not a lot but every once in while and mine is like new it don't slip or anything

Bob Kontak: Thanks for the video. I used it to fix my 98. However, the band "lash" you show of about 1/2 inch looks about right. The other end of the lever is where the approximate 1/8" band adjustment is - where the screw and lock nut are.

MudBogginRatRoddin: My truck when you get off the gas or stop then it just revs and doesnt want to go again, whats your thoughts????

Noelio Herrera: I have a 2001 dodge ram 1500 5.2 V8 4X2 and it doesn't go back into first gear when I come to a complete stop, (This only happens after warming up and driving for a little) I changed the governor pressure sensor, transducer, transmission filter and fluid and the problem still happens. I have to shift the gear manually into 1st for me to give the truck power to move because it's like driving a manual transmission but starting in 2nd, RPM's go up and truck moves but very slowly. If I leave it in D and floor it, it jumps into first and tires spin a little before I get traction. Could it be the entire transmission going? 

Levi Lewis: about how long did the whole process take you if you dont mind me asking 

Verne Leeper: On my 99 it has hesitation from 2nd to 3rd gear... I thought this might be a speed sensor on the trans.. But I replaced those less than a yr ago.. One on rear dif and one on trans.. Should I just go ahead and replace these solenoids ?

Allen Young: Hi, it's been 2 years now how is the transmission shifting now on 1998 Dodge ?

Lud Wig: I have a 2006 Ram 1500, that is not shifting most of the time. I cannot tell what gear it is in when starting out but it is not 1st and maybe not second. I dont feel it shift up lately and rpm is too high 3 -3.5, but runs good really. I get the P 0700 error which points too general TCM issue, but on this model the TCM is intergrated in the main computer, so I am debating to get it scanned for specific problem, IF a scan tool can even get more specific. What do u think? Fluid is ok. I will try some lucus just to clean filter, maybe it is gunked up, but other than changing the solenoids, do you think the TCM portion could be a culprit, as I seen it on earlier older trucks? Do you know if the '06 has the same solenoid set up as your video? Did your job also include a tranny kit (filters, ?)? Thanks! 

Hair Do: Thanks for the tip. I do know it's hard to earn money. But it is much better than working minimum wage at mcdonolds. Being an hair stylist does get tips and I end up making decent money. Plus it allows me to be creative sometimes and make customer's dream come to reality.
