1998 Ram 1500 Sport- Need Transmission- will a 1995 work?

Asked by Apr 12, 2017 at 12:14 PM about the 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4 Dr ST Extended Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We have a 1998 Dodge Ram sport we bought a
couple months ago. Transmission was bad when
we bought it and got taken. A friend of ours
swapped it out only to have issues with the other
transmission. Now we are in dire need of a good
one. We have found one for sale, but it out of a
1995, will the transmission out of a 95 work in a 98?
Also, where do you look to see if it's an RH or an
RE? Not sure where to look to find that information.
Thanks for all of your help!!

Well a 95 will not work in a 98, two different operating systems. The trans mission tag or label will have that information, it is usually stamped on the flange just above the pan, if cruddy you may have to do some scrubbing to find it.
