2012nugget: Running your tranny low on fluid is a bad thing. It may have caused damage
beyond solenoid s.
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.
ERICtheLATE: Is the torque on the band bolts that big of a deal? Can i just be
non-he-man about it? If the reverse spring breaks does it cone off like
engine valve spring(without air pressurizing cylinder) ???
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
MudBogginRatRoddin: My truck when you get off the gas or stop then it just revs and doesnt want
to go again, whats your thoughts????
cpotter1565: Thanks for Posting this video.
Would this repair be the same for a 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 with the Cummins
Mike Smoot: I have a question, I have 1997 Lincoln Mark VIII. the problem i'm having
with is, the transmission had a leak which i thought was coming from a
front seal. the other issue was that it went in all gears but drive.
meaning that it would move backwards, go into neutral, even in park. NO
PROBLEMS. However when i put in drive it would stall then when i rev it up
it would move. So i saw that there was very little fluid inside so i added
some. check it again same thing. So i took some steps to see what was wrong
1. i drop the trans pan clean it out put the magnet back.
2. then i replace the trans filter
3. replace the gasket around the pan with a new one also check the level
around pan, taped the pan till it was leveled all the way around.
4. put the pan back up and replace the fluids with the same amount that i
took out then top it off.
5. No leaks
do you think it could be a trans solenoid ?
or do you think the trans shift is out of wake trying to save some money
without going to the transmission shop. even though i may have to take it
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!
Kade Pelekane: My 1999 dodge ram automatic transmission won't shift every time I'm in
drive and I start to drive after I come to a complete stop it gets stuck in
a low gear after letting off the gas and pressing the gas again it finally
shifts do you think this video will fix my transmission?
sayiwont1990: My 99 Dodge doesn't want to shift to 3rd from second and today it basically
came out if gear while trying to get to third. Will this fix the problem?
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!
Chris Atkinson: My truck all of a sudden wouldn't pull it revved in the middle of traffic
and that's it pulled over started again shifted great for about 10 seconds
then Just revved again. Serviced the tranny in April no debris. Dropped the
pan this time no debris. Got codes p0740 tcc solenoid and p1757 governor
shift solenoid. Also found broken 3/4 accumulator speing which explained my
frequent shift to od issue. I'm buying the new tcc/ od solenoid, governor
and shift solenoid and new valve body just in case. Do you feel I'm on the
right track? 204k miles been driving perfect until a couple days ago. 1996
1500 5.2 46re transmission.
Zachary Czerniakowski: where did you get your hands on those parts i dont know what the technical
name for those parts are and i have a 1999 dodge ram 1500 4x4 sport would
the parts be the same
Johnny Herrera: This explains it so well and solves paying an arm an a leg to do that
simple job on a Dodge Truck transmission.
pernell593: windstar van 1999 wont go past 30 mph
Terry Nicholl: I have the same problem. p0734. Did this fix your problem?
m1artz: Sorry for another ps but I forgot to mention that I read somewhere online
that this problem might also be caused by some adjustment cable that goes
down into the transmission which might need to be adjusted? Possible?
Thanks again 2012nugget. Much appreciated.
m1artz: Thanks very much for the reply...hmmm, but two things, Since I have high
milage and have never changed the trans fluid (126,000 miles now) should I
drain the fluid only and then just replace it after the repair with the
same fluid I drained out? (The fluid is pretty clean for it being 14 plus
years old. And is the engine in the truck in your video also a 318/5.2
liter? Finally, will I need to put a gasket of sorts on the pan of the
tranny when I replace it? Thanks again for a reply.
m1artz: ...let me add that I meant...they said my fluid shouldn't be changed since
I have never ever changed it since 13 years when I bought it....and since I
haven't, they say changing it now will cause issues. Just making that
previous comment more clear. Thanks. So, any idea what I can do about this
trans fluid road block? I mean, I need to fix this shifting problem
like...now....but if I can't put new fluid in it...??
Daniel Virtue: Ill let yall kno how this works!! i freaked my truck up mudding being 16 i
dont have alot of resources to fix my truck, but ill try dropping the pan
ill do the band adjustments and replace the gasket and filter, and ill
replace the solenoids while im at it!! if it works ill be in ur dept cuz i
miss m old 98 ram, another question while im here theres a knocking in the
steering as well any ideas how i can fix that?
m1artz: cont >> It has 126,000 miles and the 318 engine purrs like a kitten. A
friend who is a mechanic for 30 years and a few mechanics online have said
that if I never changed the tranny fluid or had it flushed by now..then I
should NOT change it. Do you think the fix you show here is my problem too?
Further, since I've been told not to change the fluid..don't I have to
drain all the fluid when I drop the pan as you show in the vid? If so would
I SAVE the old fluid and put it back afterward? cont>>
m1artz: Thank you very much for the info/reply.
EricWaterTruck: Mine is a special case. I had wrong computer in truck that didn't let
overdrive work. However my tranny still does slip, so I may try the band
Dakota Rhoden: ive got the same truck but 4X4 and it hesitates to shift into 2nd or 3 and
when i'm at about 10 or 15 mph it kicks and sounds like its knocking. whole
new transmission or could i replace a few senors? help please
2012nugget: Check the cable that runs from the throttle body to the trans. to ensure
its not sticking. It's the detent cable, responsible for downshift, the
tighter the cable the quicker the downshift on acceleration.
will sparks: im having trouble with my 97 dodge it drives fine when i just pat the gas
but if i mash it hard it bogs down what could that be
Kimberly Ott: I have clutch problems with 1998 Dodge 1500 5.2 no pressure going down with
the clutch peddle. It does come back up but won't go into gear. What could
be the problem with this truck. I need help. Thank you
snahx131: I'm about to buy a 98 dodge ram 1500 reg cab 5.2l v8 for 1250.00 has 189.
Thousand miles. Check engine light is on and the seller said the tranny was
rebuilt. Is there anyway to tell and is that a good deal to buy it???
Eric Fomin: Governor Pressure Sensor - Oem Mopar # 56041403AA
imagn20: Wow, my son just replaced his transmission a couple of months ago because
it was doing the exact same thing! We replaced it with a salvage yard
transmission for $600. I wish we would have come across your video
sooner,,,,By the way great video I'm sure you save people plenty of cash
with it. Thanks
m1artz: See but that's the thing...I was told by about 5 mechanics NOT to change
the fluid and flush the tranny since I missed the first and second
scheduled changes and now the tranny has 126,000 miles on it. So, they said
if I change the fluid and flush the system NOW..it will screw up the
tranny..or at least a very high probability that it will...which is why I
asked you. And I had asked you if the engine in the 1500 Dodge 4 x 4 in
this vid. was a 318. I ask because mine is and I wanted >>cont>>
sheila Foster: did you find anything out for proper band adjutment?
2012nugget: More than likely you have lost fluid or fluid pressure. How is the fluid
level ? Sorry for the slow response, been out of town working.
Dan filiowich: Thank you, I got busy lately but i'm going to look into it within a week or
2. Thanks for the advice,
Brandon Filsinger: i have a 1997 dodge ram 1500 5.9L motor. it shifts into 2nd fine sometimes.
but to get into 3rd i have to put it in nutruel and back in drive and it
shifts into 3rd. and it stays in 3rd a few seconds and shifts into
overdrive. you think if i changed the solenoids it would fix this? i
adjusted the TV cable and it didnt make a difference.
m1artz: ..cont..wanted to write down the part numbers you show on the sides of the
solenoid boxes in the video. But, if the Ram in the vid is not the 5.2 -318
cu.....then those part numbers may be wrong..yes? Thanks again.
Eman4137: I have a 2006 Mitsubishi Raider. Had O'Reilly's check my engine light code.
Said it was a transmission pressure switch. How hard would it be to change
the switch myself? Dealer said $300 in labor. Screw that! I'm and aircraft
mechanic and surely i can do this myself.
James Steiner: I have this problem i just bought the damn thing and its acting up already
not even a month into it! It revs up after shifting into second gear and
doesnt want to go into 3rd. I check my fluid alot and this last time i
checked i had a little bit of metal on the stick if i replace these how
much longer would my tranny have if this fixes it.
Marat Rakhmanov: Oil level is normal and red and i used luckas trans fix but didn't help ,
can you help me about this problem? Thank you
Airsofter1010: Is why I am wondering, that truck is my first truck. She needs some TLC on
body from common rot. Someday I am going to do a ground up.
the gremlinz1: Having a similar issue. Had us a hot spell for about a week and was driving
my 99 Durango and it was like someone turned off a switch or a cable broke
or something. The passing gear seems like she ain't all there! She'll roast
'em in reverse no problem. When I put it back in drive its just a gradual
acceleration. Once I get to high speeds I really have to floor it just to
get the passing gear to kick in.. Need help!! Any ideas ?
CSD1270: If your steering shaft is the issue, look on ebay for a borgeson one. I
have one on my 01 ram and it corrected the problem immediately. Otherwise,
do what 2012nugget said
CSD1270: Can you feel the knocking through the floor also or only through the
steering wheel? Another common issue with 2nd gen rams is the steering
shafts that connect the column to the gear box. The grease inside the boots
on these shafts becomes too viscous when the engine heats up and over time,
this causes the cv style joint in the shaft to pull in and out, resulting
in a knocking felt through the steering wheel whenever the truck hits a
sharp bump or goes over rough terrain.
elDodgeO: could this be the problem I'm having? I just got an 01 and around 60mph it
turns off the o/d itself then the transmission temp light comes on and wont
Jim Cash.: Great video fella, I have a Dakota seems to run out 2nd, into 3rd....then
shifts... is the trany simpilar ,I have a 5.2 V8. auto trany. ? let me know
Chris Booth: Is this the same procedure for replacing the solenoid as it would be with a
03 Dodge 1500?
Shane Pokorney: Reading these comments you clearly know your stuff. Maybe you can help me
out, it seems to be a similar problem. I have a 99 ram 1500 4x4 1st and 2nd
shift great but when I get to going about 55-60 mph it shifts into 3rd and
runs very low rpms unless I floor it then it will jump up to about 3000
rpms. Thought it may be a solenoid or overdrive problem. Any help would be
johnny thomas: Got a 97 dodge ram 1500 doesn't wanna shift thinking about doing this...
But once n awhile it does shift but it shakes really bad until i floor it
making it down shift
shannon knickerbocker: Thank you saved me a bunch of money i watched this while changing mine out.
tom williams: done truck shifts like new .. thanks for the information
