Asked by Dec 07, 2013 at 10:06 AM about the 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 4 Dr SLT 4WD Quad Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello. I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500, with a 5.9L Magnum. Yesterday with no problems whatsoever driving, and after the truck had sat a couple hours; 2 minutes after starting up again, and driving through a parking lot, then at 10 miles an hour the fluid completely dumped out. Does any one know what could cause this, besides a hole in the transmission fluid pan? Thanks ahead of time for your input Matt, in Denver. 12/7/2013

Seal, or gasket failed, or hard line came loose. Don't drive it anymore, have it towed to your nearest garage, you don't want to do any more damage.
