i have a 2000 dodge ram 1500 5.2L v8 2wd auto trans and just yesterday while driving down the road my truck wont seem to shift into higher gears the rpm's get higher and higher and it still wont shift? whats wrong
Don't have experience with this problem on your truck so I can't give you good advice... About all I can say is make sure your linkage is adjusted properly. Other than that, take it to a trusted mechanic...
its just strange this just happened out of the blue
ur overdrive may b turned off
my o/d switch is on my shifter to turn it on and off when its off u hit the switch and a light comes on in the dash by the gauges
Will it shift out of first gear (25 MPH ish) if not try replacing the speed sensor on the rear axle. I had a 1998 Dakota that was not shifting out of first gear and that was the problem.
yes 1st is good sometimes it gets stuck on 3rd and the rpms just skyrocket when it dont wanna shift but when i punch it to pick up speed it stays locked it that low gear
also i thought the speed sensor was for ABS problems
its a auto tranny
well just took it in today to try and replace the fluid and change the tranny filter to see if that does the trick
sounds like you need play with the gas peddle when it gets up there give it gas reall fast or let off a tiny bit and see if shell shift if not add some trany fluid or buy a chevy lolbut my dakota will do that some time and if you just play with the gas a little bit that might work
Remove you speed sensor on the tail of your tranny ( not the one on the rear that's for ABS) then clean the metal off the tip where the magnet is and reinstall ) see what that does for ya if theres a lot of metal ... yup if its clean then maybe bad or possibly a clogd cat or something that would make shifting hard but it dosent sound like your transmission to me
I must have all ben had by doge I have the same problems and can not find a fix for it help firstname.lastname@example.org any advise or help would be app
I had the same problem with an 01 Dodge Ram 1500. There are two senors located in the transmission that will need to be replace. You will need to drain your transmission and drop the pan. on the right side of the transmission you will see two sensors, speed sensor $47.18 and governor control solenoid $89.95. Replace both of them. replace your pan gasket and fluid and you are ready to roll.
I have a 2001 ram 1500 when I gas on it while rolling around 60 it feels like it slips out of gear and my rpms sky rocket. Eney idea on what that might be
Roy, on your problem with the transmission. It sounds to me like you are having band problems. If you can get to 60 with it shifting through all the gears, then your shift bands are slipping.
