What transmission do I have?

Asked by Sep 10, 2012 at 07:54 AM about the 1994 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 94 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 5.9l 360 with an automatic transmission. First problem was oil leaking from the engine so I replaced the rear main seal after puting all back together and starting there was a bad grinding noise from the front of trany. What I need to know is this the ring gear im hearing and if so how hard will this be to change? Does the transmission need to be dropped to change ring gear? How expensive will this be? And am I in the right direction with this or is it something else?

Should be an A518. A518 is Dodge's older transmission model. This tranny ('89- '94) is hydraulically conrolled with a non lock up torque converter and no over drive. A518 was replaced in 1994 with the 46RH, no overdrive. The 46RE goes on 97-02 trucks and includes the overdrive feature.

www.ramforumz.com is great for Didge Q's www.theautochannel.com has pretty decent $$ on re-builts. Hope this helps!
