1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Question: shifting from overdrive to drive
I own a dodge 2500 diesel 4 x 4 and I had three throttle position sensors go out, but besides that I have 228,000 miles on it. What is going on with yours? - hemicuda
to hel you first i need to know is the transmission or the gearshifter in the steering column - mitch1976
Please provide a more detailed description on the symptoms and conditiond relating to the shifting issues, ie: engine temp, vehicle speed, gear shift position etc. Also, check and verify that the fluid level is correct and the fluid condition is good. The TSB listed below will not correct the condition as the overdrive unit is in the tail housing. the Torque Converter clutch only provides "lockup" reducing converter slippage for more of a direct drive. No relation to Overdrive operation. - Johnny Mopar
