1999 Dodge Ram 3500 ProblemsTransmission Shifting Issues Due to Failed Replace Pressure Solenoid
Replacing a pressure solenoid valve in the transmission valve body may fix an issue where the transmission "hunts" between first and second gears. Our technicians report that customers sometimes describe this complaint as surging or bucking.
If a Check Engine Light illuminates indicating leak detection pump (LDP) failure, the cause is often pinched or disconnected vacuum lines to the pump. Vacuum lines should be inspected before replacing the leak detection pump. Contamination (carbon or debris) in the pump can cause failure and any hoses should be cleared before a new pump is installed.
Engine overheating can result from coolant leaks which are commonly found at the thermostat housing gasket, water pump, heater return tube O-ring at the water pump, intake manifold gasket, and timing cover gasket. Our technicians recommend a complete inspection of the cooling system after any repairs are made to be sure there are no other leaks.

After truck feels like it has stalled, I pump the accelerator several times and it starts right up. It occurs more frequently in hot weather and when the diesel tank is lower on fuel. I had the fuel filter changed and it helped for a short period but now it is doing it more often.
