I installed a comp cam adjusted my distributor truck won't start
2001 dodge ram 1500 won,t shift into overdrive
Bought a used transmission, changed fluid, filter, adjusted bands installed it. Then I test drove it shifted into overdrive but hasn't shifted into overdrive since. Been 2 weeks now
When it does shift into 3rd and you want to go a little more the trans wants to go back to second like passing some one but drops back into 1qst.
Sometimes my 2001 dodge ram 1500 automatic transmission will go when it's in drive and reverse and other times it wont. What could be my problem?? I heard that they have a reset button on the transmission. If they do where is it and how can I solve my problem w/o a high repair bill?
When I was driving I was going 45mph and I gave it more throttle. it seemed like it shifted up then it seemed like it shifted right down because the rpms went all the way up and lagged out. It felt like when u trun your over drive off and you floor it it lags it felt like that. Fluids are all good. I drove off to go back home everything shifted fine all the way to 70 then something smelled like it was burning
When truck warms up,about 15 20 mins it will die an not restart till it cools down a bit
I just rebuilt my 96 dodge 5.9l transmission got everything back together the 4wd dash light stays on when shifter is in 2wd An the truck drives 50mph at 3000rpm An won’t shift
It started making noise like something was loose rattiling inside my overdrive started going out but If I shut off engine and restarted it would come back on.Now it will barely move at all.
I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 and my serpentine belt keeps shredding. I have replace the tensioner pulley assembly, but when I did so I noticed that the belt seems to be slipping on the crankshaft/harmonic balancer pulley. The belt slips slightly over the lip of the pulley which Is probably why it keeps shredding my belt. Any suggestions?
Vibration at slower rpms.
When driving I hear a squeaking sound at around 1000rpm that goes away at about 1300rpm in 1st and 2nd gear. Once at cruise speed it begins to make a high pitched whistle at around 2000rpm but only while accelerating. Goes away when I take my foot off the gas. Truck also has slight vibration as well. Was thinking it was the clutch as I've noticed a difference in acceleration, climbing hills and it only does it while driving. No noises at any rpm sitting still and in neutral. Never heard a clutch sound like that when going out before though. Also shifts through all gears fine. Truck is 2WD, 3.9V6 with 5 spd transmission.
2001 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 SLT 5.9L Automatic.
Transmission light on, smoke, a high temperature, and a proper and clean and fluid level. Manually shifted 1st, 2nd, 3rd, Drive, to get it to move and get it home. Could it be the transmission sensors? Could it be clogged transmission cooler lines? Will replacement of filter and fluid solve issue? Or do I have to replace the entire transmission?
What seems to make the problem better or worse? Only drove it to get it home. Did not want to make it worse.
How long have you had this problem? Happened when pulling a loaded horse trailer on Friday. Limped it home on Saturday.
