Regulator valve may cause noise when transmission is in reverse on Dodge Ram 1500


A loud buzzing or whining when the transmission is in reverse may be caused by a regulator valve in the transmission valve body. A revised valve was released that does not resonate. Careful diagnosis should be performed because other causes can create the noise.

1997 ram 1500 4X4 318 automatic (duh) makes a weird noise when in reverse. Noise is worse when moving, a loud whirring or whining noise. Transmission has begun to slip in reverse also. Truck seems to pulsate like the motor is missing but in any forward gear it is smooth running and no shift problems. I have not tried to repair as of yet.
