Transmission Type


Asked by May 04, 2011 at 04:04 AM about the Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I need to know which numeric trans type I have in my truck so I know which technique I need to use to adjust the front and rear bands.

It depends the 318's have an a-500 and the 360's have an a-518

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

if its 94+ the band adjustment technique as well as the torque spec will be different from the 500/518 since the 94+ transmissions are electronically controlled and therefore have less friction material on the band. but if your truck is a 94+ ram 1500 its going to have a 46RE transmission


hey dan you seem pretty knowledgable. i have a 2005 dodge ram slt with a 5.7 that when you take in or out of gear makes a clanking noise. had the u joints and driveshaft checked but nothing wrong. took to a transmission shop and they told me theyve never seen this problem at all. they had five techs look it and it was a great shop and has been in business for years and they didnt find anything as well. the thing shifts smooth and doesnt slip and thats what has them puzzled. any suggestions? they want 300.00 just to take it apart. thanks, chuck,


so when you put it in neutral and say, shift to park, you get a clank? how many miles does the truck have?


i mean drive haha sorry


hey dan thats ok it does it all the time , sometimes you have to shift it back and fourth before it makes a loud one but basically does it all the time. i have 80,000 on her at the moment.


dan not sure if i told you or not but its an automatic transmission, hope i didnt throw you off. ill try to check for leakage during the job, will only take a second. your talking about where the rearend back u joint is right? i really appreciate your help bud.


heres a pic of the truck


can i send you one? lol didnt work.


hey dan looks like the shear pin broke on the parking paw on the inside of the tranny. thanks for your help buddy.
