Asked by Oct 30, 2013 at 07:29 PM about the 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr Laramie SLT Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Started having problems with what we thought was overdrive wasn't kicking in, changed transmission and torque convertor out with another used one and now having same problem as the original transmission. Any ideas plz help. Truck cranks and drives good for about 300 miles and then after stopping for gas it started acting up and now it won't get over 5 mph.
