Having problems with your 1999 Dodge Ram ?

Sounds like dirt in the transmission may be causing the shift points to not work properly.
\015\012Is this the problem you are having?
\015\012If it is, then I would say that one should have the fluid changed out of the transmission at a local shop.
\015\012If this does not solve the problem, then the solution may be a rebuild of the transmission.

1992 Dodge D150 2x4 Automatic 318ci/5.2L V8 Truck drives okay, but shifts hard from 1st-2nd-3rd. (Overdrive does NOT engage, but has worked in the past, since shifting issues started) Also, slowing from cruising speed of 65 mph, transmission will not down-shift until about 10 to 15 mph. At this point, vehicle shudders like a standard type transmission would do. I have heard multiple solutions from torque converter to 'tuning' transmission to solenoids. What do you think I should do?

My Hyundai Santa Fe 2004 doesn't shift down from overdrive when driving at 70 mph. Recently replaced the crankshaft sensor and timing belt.

First off, when transmission is cold it doesn't seem to want to shift properly. Secondly, at all times I have to manually shift the tranny to even get the car going. The car shifts fine until you reach overdrive and then no matter what speed I travel at the tranny will not shift into overdrive. Please help this is driving me crazy. Thanks

Hard to say. You say the "rps are all messed up", but did you mean the RPM?If so, then you could mean that the automatic transmission is not shifting right, and you should check the ATF for level, color, and smell.But i ... Hyundai XG300

I have a 99 rt dakota and the transmission isnt shifting properly and it will not go into overdrive.

I have checked the speed sensor, checked the adjustment on the tv cable, and i have also checked the tps which im not sure if

Alright, so the other day my wife and I were driving our 2003 Impala and it didn't seem to want to shift out of first gear, with the gearshift put in to the Automatic Overdrive setting and the speed of the vehicle passing 45MPH. It simply revved until I took my foot off of the accelerator. After stopping in a parking lot, I shifted the vehicle into park and turned it off. After restarting, I shifted it into Automatic Overdrive again, and it seemed to accelerate fine that night and into the ne

When traveling between 35-55 mph. my pathfinder jerks and stalls a little bit. Doesn't seem serious, just anoying. Then just yesterday it wouldn't respond to pressing the gas pedal. It started out very sluggish then slowly gained speed. Somewhat of a power loss. It also wouldn't shift into overdrive. Wen't to the store, came back out and the sluggish start, and overdrive problem were gone. However it still has the jerking problem at 35-55 mph.

You got a problem a sense on the accerlator .Or on the air intake senser.If it's not that I would put gas cleaner in the tank.That would be the cheaps thing to try. Buy your gas at walmart and in the insle that has the tech gas cleaner and buy it the ... 1999 Nissan Pathfinder

Hello, I have a 1998 Dodge Durango (automatic), having problems accelerating around the 30 mph mark (not sure what gear this would be). If you baby it up you can pass this shift mark, but if you have your foot as you would normally drive the rpms jump up into the red zone. This only happens around the 30 mph mark, it shifts fine when I am on the freeway at higher speeds.

There is a malfunction in the transmission somewhere. this is a problem you cannot fix in a basic garage because of the diagnosis tools needed for this trans. diagnosis. could be bad TV cable adjustment if not anything major. durango transmissions u ... 1998 Dodge Durango

2004 Chevy Silverado 1500, 92,000 mi Transmission shifts harder than normal, but only slightly. After vehicle has been run, for a hour or so, transmission does not want to shift into overdrive. At 60-65 mph tach is at approx 2800 instead of 1800-2000 (normal). Otherwise transmission seems smooth in all gears. Fluid is clean and at proper level. Hopefully this is not a transmission problem, but instead something that regulates shifting.

I \015\012assume you checked the fluid level and color already as that’s the first\015\012 thing to check. It should be clear cherry red in color and at the right\015\012 level with the engine warm, running and in park. I suspect you have \015\ ... Chevrolet Silverado 1500

My 2001 Elantra is not shifting right. Sometimes it work just fine. Other times it wants to shift hard from 2nd to 3rd. After that it remains in 3rd till I turn off engine. Even when I slow down or stop it stays in 3rd or Drive. At 55 mph it revs at 3000 rpm, should be 2000 rpm. My alternator is also squealing when I start up the car. Do you think the alternator is not providing enough power to let transmission shift correctly or do you think this is a speed sensor issue. Again sometimes car
