SOURCE: transmission shifts hard down from highway gear only (D>3rd)

I had the same thing! It was a computer issue. It only cost me about $35.00.

Sounds like the speed sensor on the rear axle.

SOURCE: trouble with the transmission solenoid

USUALLY A SHIFT SOLENOID DTC IS REPAIRED BY REPLACING THE TRANS SOLENOID PACK ASSEMBLY..LOCATED ON OUTSIDE OF TRANSMISSION..YOU MUST BE CAREFUL WHEN CHANGING PACK..CLEAN ALL DIRT/DEBRIS FROM OUTSIDE OF PACK..YOU DON'T WANT ANY DIRT TO ENTER TRANSMISSION..SOLENOID IS A SMALL BOX LOCATED ON SIDE OF TRANS FACING FRONT OF VEHICLE..YOU MUST REMOVE TRANS COOLER LINE HOSES FROM FITTINGS ON TRANS..REMOVE INPUT SPEED SENSOR..UNPLUG PACK..8MM SCREW HOLDS IT..3 BOLTS HOLD PACK TO TRANS..YOU MUST CLEAN ALL GASKET RESIDUE THOROUGHLY BEFORE INSTALLING PACK..I'D RECOMMEND GETTING SOMEONE WHO HAS DONE THIS BEFORE IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE DOING THIS..I HOPE THIS HELPS

I have 1995 dodge ram 3.9 liter that you have to hold gas pedal to the floor to even move,truck doesn't stall like normal fuel pump trouble.Any idea?


I recommended checking fluid level in trans. first. If that's good try starting the vehicle and shifting from forward to reverse and giving it a couple seconds and either gear so that the trans can prime its self. Last resort drop the pan and put in a new filter and fluid.

1996 dodge ram 5.2 auto 318 to shift to 4wd do u put in park or drive and can you shift to and from 4wd on the fly


Need to know what transfer case it has. Most t-cases have synchronized gearing...meaning shift on the fly. A quick test is drive at less than 5 mph, and shift, no gear clash means you have synchros. ****This is only from 2wd to 4 high. 4 low you MUST be stopped(doesn't matter what gear its in).****

OK. MR. MORA. SEEMS TO ME THAT YOU HAVE A PROBLEM THAT YOU CAN SOLVE, DUE TO THE FACT THAT YOU REPLACED THE MOTOR YOURSELF. WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO DO IS GO BACK TO BASICS, BOTH VISUAL AND MECHANICAL, FIRST OF ALL LOOK FOR LOOSE OR UNPLUGGED ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS, ESPECIALLY THE ONES AROUND THE FIRE WALL OR BACK SIDE OF ENGINE. ONE OR TWO MAY BE OFF OR NOT CORRECTLY PLUGGED IN. NEXT DUE TO TRANSMISSION NOT SHIFTING OUT OF DEFAULT GEAR (SECOND GEAR) YOU WILL NEED TO RETRIEVE THE FAILURE CODES THEY SHOULD BE RELATED TO TRANSMISSION DESCRIPTORS, WRITE ALL OF THEM DOWN. ALSO LOOK FOR LOOSE GROUNDING WIRES AND GROUND THEM PROPERLY. I THINK YOU WILL FIND THE PROBLEM. IF NOT REPOST FOR MORE HELP BUT, REPOST WITH THE FAILURE CODES. I WILL NEED THEM TO HELP YOU FURTHER.

How do I turn 4wd on?


    • 1 Start your Dodge truck's engine.
    • 2 Turn the electronic transfer case from "2WD" to "4WD Lock" to engage the high range 4WD, if the dodge truck is equipped with an electronic transfer case; otherwise, shift the transfer case lever from "2H" to "4H." The electronic transfer case is located on the instrument panel and is marked with "2WD," "4WD Lock" and 4WD Low." The lever-equipped transfer case is located to the right of your leg and is marked with "2H," "4H" and "4L."
    • 3 Shift the transmission into "Neutral" while the vehicle is either stopped or rolling at 2 to 3 mph to begin engaging in the low range 4WD. Turn the electronic transfer case to "4WD Low," if the Dodge truck is equipped with an electronic transfer case; otherwise, shift the transfer case lever from "2H" or "4H" to "4L."
    Tips & Warnings
    • Indicator lights will come on and alert you that your vehicle is in either the high or low range of 4WD.
    • Do not engage in the low range of 4WD drive if the transmission is in gear; you must shift to "Neutral" first.
    • Many Dodge trucks allow you to shift from 2-wheel drive to the high range of 4WD at up to 55 mph--consult your truck's manual to ensure that this is possible. Do not exceed 55 mph while engaged in the high range of 4WD. Do not exceed 25 mph while engaged in the low range of 4WD.
    • Do not engage in 4WD unless you are on slipper or rocky roads.

There are many things to consider with an automatic. Check that you have installed the kick down cable and spring correctly. If the kickdown is stuck or the spring is holding it in the wrong direction this will cause your problem. Insure your 8 pin plug is seated properly into into the sillinoid connector. Also check and see if any transmission codes have been set. Hope this helps.
