i have a 2011 ram 1500 with 80k miles. engine light came on and truck will not go into 5th gear (overdrive). Mechanic said timing chain. $1600 to fix. No other symptoms. any other theories?
Your mechanic knows better than I do because he saw the truck and knows the codes. You did not give me anything to go on. Post the trouble codes if you have them. I am not sure how the timing chain relates to a transmission problem! Get a second opinion before laying out the money.
got the codes: P000B and P0016 got a second opinion.... the dealership said its a bad oil control valve. I hope they are correct because way cheaper. interested in your thoughts...
