2001 Dodge Ram 3500 24 Valve Cummins Turbo Diesel 4x4. It feels like the transmission slips when driving around 45-55 mph, with or without OD. Tranny filter and fluid changed. Truck also has a Dyno Power chip. What could cause this? Could it be a throttle position sensor or idle position sensor? Or could the clutches just be burned up?
