Tim Vincent: I have a 1999 Durango 5.2 with the 44re transmission, I've had the pan off
and saw these solenoids. I did a filter and fluid change, upon first test
drive it was fine, however after work, it shifts first and second reliably
no slippage, but wouldn't go into third or overdrive, before this, it would
go first second then third if I'd run up the rpms get up to around 45 then
go from D to N to D real quick while lifting off the accelerator then it
would grab third. Sounds like these solenoids are exactly my problem.
however with that being said, I have a friend who is an expert transmission
guy who I learned has a source to buy transmission parts whole sale (used
to have mechanic shop in town) I learned I can get all the transmission
parts for a whole rebuild and upgrade to 46re guts for the same price as
these solenoids by themselves. I think I'm going to have it gutted and
Slichman500: I got an 86 gmc sierra that was shifting fine and now the column shift wont
put it back in park.. Would those 2 solenoids be causing that problem or
would adjustments just need to be done??
deric Cormier: I have a 97 ram 1500 and my problem is it stays in high gear going up hills
and does not want to stay in on straight highway, seams like it does it
when it gets warm, does this sound like the same problem, yours stays in 2
and spins out, im just not sure if they would be the same issue, thanks for
2012nugget: Running your tranny low on fluid is a bad thing. It may have caused damage
beyond solenoid s.
Bink Watts: I have a 2000 Dodge I bought that has tranny issues. It is hard to get into
gear, forward or reverse, but when it goes in, it will do fine. It makes a
grinding noise at times. I don't try to drive it at all, I don't want to
cause further damage. The shifting link appears to be adjusted properly.
When the tranny works, it shifts great, that's why I think it may be
something as simple as this. Do the problems I'm having sound like the
problems you were having?
Josh Turner: This was a good video to show these solenoids. I realize it's old, but
there is a mod you can do to allow for better flow to the first solenoid
you removed. You open up the channel around the screens with a 3/4" drill
bit. As it's designed, the fluid can only get to a small section and if
one of those screens gets partially clogged, it will diminish fluid flow.
I read about it on the dodgetalk forums.
ahrimshood: ihave a 2002 rt durango, please let me know if this fix will fit. the
durango revs out arround 4500-5000 rpm before itwill shift to 2nd and
rarely shifts into 3rd. oh and i just did a fluid change and filter no
metal shavings or clutch material
jessiyoung87: i have a 1996 dodge ram 1500. the other day i helped a friend pull her car
out of the mud and now my transmission is acting up. sometimes it slips
going from dead stop to taking off and is really hard to shift from 2nd to
3rd i have to manually shift from 1st 2nd to drive to get it to shift what
do you think my problem is
Levi Lewis: about how long did the whole process take you if you dont mind me asking
Allen Young: Hi, it's been 2 years now how is the transmission shifting now on 1998
Omer Hadzic: Great job. Thanks
Daron Welch: I have a 1995 dodge ram 1500. Transmission was running fine and out of
nowhere, it doesn't jump in gear like it used to. It also doesn't shift
into 3rd gear like it unless I let off the gas, then runs fine after that.
Do you think I'm having the same problem? Are solenoids in the same place
as the 98? It also make like a grinding noise when I put it in gear!
Verne Leeper: On my 99 it has hesitation from 2nd to 3rd gear... I thought this might be
a speed sensor on the trans.. But I replaced those less than a yr ago.. One
on rear dif and one on trans.. Should I just go ahead and replace these
Braxton Sorensen: I have a 2000 dodge cummins wont shift unless u let off of the gas pedal
then it shifts fine is it those solenoids
Savu Macias: I just got a 99 dodge ram 1500 regular, on the 1st gear it takes long to
shift to 2nd & when it shift to 2nd I press the gas to go on but it shifts
back to 1st & continues there until I do the same thing let go of the gas
to shift to 2nd once it shift to 2nd I continue very slowly which I don't
like, can it be the sensor ???
JLGJA: I have 97 5.9 dodge ram automatic trans, I have a p0740 code! Torque
convert clutch circuit/open, is this what the bideo is about? Please let me
know, went to 3 different places they want me to replace the transmission
for $3500.00 I dont have the money, my truck is running perfect is just
sometimes 3rd speed takes a few seconds to work, let me know please I will
redkevlar: Thanks for the video. Very very helpful. I replaced the solenoids,
installed a drain plug in the pan, and adjusted one of my sloppy bands as
you instructed. Tranny shifts perfectly now. Thanks man!
Aaron Cooper: I have a 1999 Dodge ram 1500 5.2L 318 4x4 and it starts fine and shifts
into drive and accelerates....but the RPMs tack up to about 4000 and the
transmission still has not shifted......any ideas what it nay be or what I
need to do to fix it??? I would sure appreciate any feedback at all. Thank
E H: Hi, I have a 2000 model Ram 1500 with automatic over drive transmission. My
truck just started having problems yesterday. My transmission will shift
into every gear except for overdrive. so once I get over 45 mph the rpm
are right at 3k... its down shift back into 2 and 1 as I slow down, up
shifts again as I speed up until its time to shift into over drive. I also
engage the over drive switch on the shift and no change. do I need to
replace the governor pressure switch and solenoid or do I need to change
out the over drive locking solenoid.... thanks
ekoms777: thank you very much for the video!
Ruey Diehl: Did you have any transmission codes for these solenoids?
Chris Wisdom: Hey man, I have a 1998 Ram 1500 and Im having the same problem, just had to
replace the 'brain' (main computer) which somehow got fried, the truck
would crank and crank just no spark, and replacing the brain fixed this.
but now it wont upshift, the transmission was working fine before the brain
went out, so im thinking maybe the gov pressure switch and solenoid were
"fried" with the brain. What are your thoughts on it? Oh the truck also
wont go into 4 wheel drive and o/d wont turn on and off, all of which
worked before the brain was replaced. The truck sat for a bit before i had
the brain replaced and the tranny fluid was really low after sitting for
almost a year, but if it wasnt ran with low fluid than it shouldnt have
caused an issue right? I put fluid in it before driving it, which is when i
found that it wouldnt upshift. Any feedback you can give would be mucho
Maxwell Higgs: this was very help thank you!!!!
Lud Wig: I have a 2006 Ram 1500, that is not shifting most of the time. I cannot
tell what gear it is in when starting out but it is not 1st and maybe not
second. I dont feel it shift up lately and rpm is too high 3 -3.5, but runs
good really. I get the P 0700 error which points too general TCM issue,
but on this model the TCM is intergrated in the main computer, so I am
debating to get it scanned for specific problem, IF a scan tool can even
get more specific. What do u think?
Fluid is ok. I will try some lucus just to clean filter, maybe it is
gunked up, but other than changing the solenoids, do you think the TCM
portion could be a culprit, as I seen it on earlier older trucks? Do
you know if the '06 has the same solenoid set up as your video? Did your
job also include a tranny kit (filters, ?)? Thanks!
Mike Smoot: I have a question, I have 1997 Lincoln Mark VIII. the problem i'm having
with is, the transmission had a leak which i thought was coming from a
front seal. the other issue was that it went in all gears but drive.
meaning that it would move backwards, go into neutral, even in park. NO
PROBLEMS. However when i put in drive it would stall then when i rev it up
it would move. So i saw that there was very little fluid inside so i added
some. check it again same thing. So i took some steps to see what was wrong
1. i drop the trans pan clean it out put the magnet back.
2. then i replace the trans filter
3. replace the gasket around the pan with a new one also check the level
around pan, taped the pan till it was leveled all the way around.
4. put the pan back up and replace the fluids with the same amount that i
took out then top it off.
5. No leaks
do you think it could be a trans solenoid ?
or do you think the trans shift is out of wake trying to save some money
without going to the transmission shop. even though i may have to take it
ERICtheLATE: Is the torque on the band bolts that big of a deal? Can i just be
non-he-man about it? If the reverse spring breaks does it cone off like
engine valve spring(without air pressurizing cylinder) ???
dirtbikevlog: I have a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 I think I might have the same problem. It
doesn't want to shift into 3rd sometimes and it will rev high then
sometimes shift if I mess with it, does this sound like the same problem
your buddy was having?
marsha layton: Hi 2012nugget, I have a 1998 5.2 4x4 durango. every once in in a while from
a stop it will rev up high in 1st and won't shift to 2nd. i would pull over
shift it park then put it back in drive and it will be fine. will changing
out the gov, solenoid and tightening the band help or do i have a bigger
jared squires: your video just saved a guy from getting punched in the
cementaryjr: I have a 1996 dodge ram pick up 4×4 5.2 that won't shift do you think
that's the problem?
sweet peach: hi i was wondering if you could help me out i have a 1998 dodge durango and
when i first start to drive it its slow to pick up speed then when its run
a little bit it smooth out but when i slow down some times then try to go
up a hill it cant pick up speed fast enough and it make a loud grunting
noise what could be wrong with my truck
cpotter1565: Thanks for Posting this video.
Would this repair be the same for a 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 with the Cummins
Colby Wetzel: I have a 1999 dodge ram 5.9 360 146,000 miles and my tranny is like new and
believe me I like to play in the mud a little bit not a lot but every once
in while and mine is like new it don't slip or anything
Kade Pelekane: My 1999 dodge ram automatic transmission won't shift every time I'm in
drive and I start to drive after I come to a complete stop it gets stuck in
a low gear after letting off the gas and pressing the gas again it finally
shifts do you think this video will fix my transmission?
sayiwont1990: My 99 Dodge doesn't want to shift to 3rd from second and today it basically
came out if gear while trying to get to third. Will this fix the problem?
Rick Lasee: Sweet video bro. You get 5 stars from me. Only took me 2 hours after
watching your post. Parts were $300 with a new filter but that's a lot
cheaper than any shop would have charged me. Most of them couldn't even
tell me if that was the problem. Thanks and have a Merry Christmas!
Chris Atkinson: My truck all of a sudden wouldn't pull it revved in the middle of traffic
and that's it pulled over started again shifted great for about 10 seconds
then Just revved again. Serviced the tranny in April no debris. Dropped the
pan this time no debris. Got codes p0740 tcc solenoid and p1757 governor
shift solenoid. Also found broken 3/4 accumulator speing which explained my
frequent shift to od issue. I'm buying the new tcc/ od solenoid, governor
and shift solenoid and new valve body just in case. Do you feel I'm on the
right track? 204k miles been driving perfect until a couple days ago. 1996
1500 5.2 46re transmission.
MudBogginRatRoddin: Thats a good idea, I didnt think of that. ive got a 97 ram sport that wont
shift. I adjusted the bands and it didnt help im gonna try that. Thanks so
Noelio Herrera: I have a 2001 dodge ram 1500 5.2 V8 4X2 and it doesn't go back into first
gear when I come to a complete stop, (This only happens after warming up
and driving for a little) I changed the governor pressure sensor,
transducer, transmission filter and fluid and the problem still happens. I
have to shift the gear manually into 1st for me to give the truck power to
move because it's like driving a manual transmission but starting in 2nd,
RPM's go up and truck moves but very slowly. If I leave it in D and floor
it, it jumps into first and tires spin a little before I get traction.
Could it be the entire transmission going?
Zachary Czerniakowski: where did you get your hands on those parts i dont know what the technical
name for those parts are and i have a 1999 dodge ram 1500 4x4 sport would
the parts be the same
SuperHonda185: Has anyone have problems with not going into gear at all except reverse I
was driving and only got 3rd then 1st then no gears
MyLor8: I have a 98 Dodge Ram 1500 5.9L 2x4. My Transmission makes a whining noise
in reverse, moving or just sitting. It still shifts fine. Fluid is a good
color and full. Also, my ABS light came back on after a short
drive despite replacing the ABS sensor. And would you know the points for
checking the seat belt retractors- seat belt light wont go out. By the way,
Bob Kontak: Thanks for the video. I used it to fix my 98.
However, the band "lash" you show of about 1/2 inch looks about right. The
other end of the lever is where the approximate 1/8" band adjustment is -
where the screw and lock nut are.
MudBogginRatRoddin: My truck when you get off the gas or stop then it just revs and doesnt want
to go again, whats your thoughts????
Johnny Herrera: This explains it so well and solves paying an arm an a leg to do that
simple job on a Dodge Truck transmission.
pernell593: windstar van 1999 wont go past 30 mph
Terry Nicholl: I have the same problem. p0734. Did this fix your problem?
m1artz: Sorry for another ps but I forgot to mention that I read somewhere online
that this problem might also be caused by some adjustment cable that goes
down into the transmission which might need to be adjusted? Possible?
Thanks again 2012nugget. Much appreciated.
m1artz: Thanks very much for the reply...hmmm, but two things, Since I have high
milage and have never changed the trans fluid (126,000 miles now) should I
drain the fluid only and then just replace it after the repair with the
same fluid I drained out? (The fluid is pretty clean for it being 14 plus
years old. And is the engine in the truck in your video also a 318/5.2
liter? Finally, will I need to put a gasket of sorts on the pan of the
tranny when I replace it? Thanks again for a reply.
