I also had it serviced regularly. Well its been a busy year and I haven't got to post much so today I'm going to try and catch up haha. The transmission kit also included a remote mount transmission filter that must be installed with the new transmission. It would go into gear, linkage was working but no going. This is not a problem with new or rebuilt replacement parts, but by now most of the original seals in vehicles made prior to 2000 are are the verge of failure due to age and heat degradation. She came home from work and the next morning went to go Christmas shopping.
My tires have worn out completely due to this issue, after continually calling the dealership and complaining they are installing an oem suspension part and will give me one free tire. I think it just had a few weak parts that didn't like additional pressure. Great to see your post, Megatron!. Those problems were fixed then but they have returned again recently with a twist. In this case my wife had my truck because our other car died.
Some fast-lube centers offer this approach. I know the topic is fluid and I will get to that. I had planned for some power enhancement later so it seemed wise to get a better built transmission first. Yet there is recall 14v79600 which covers only 2005 and 2009-2012 model years. I did a lot of research on the truck prior to purchasing it. I know they are older Dakotas, but those lessons taught me that when it comes to Dodge trucks, using the wrong fluid will come back on you later. The external filter is a screw in style with hoses and a remote mount housing.
That goes for all fluids in my opinion. Your custom converter will help tremendously, too. Stopped the vehicle and found that the fluid had leaked out of the rear pinion bearing housing. Check the fluid level and probably will take another quart of fluid. Search for the trusted brands you prefer, compare prices when you can, and make sure you get the part you need to keep your Dodge Ram 1500 humming! I liked the Sonnax parts but I'm not at the mechanical level to take on the build myself. Okay back to the topic lol. The new system should hold around 15 quarts give or take a little.
Long story short I paid 325 dollars for a 1700 dollar repair. Yes, if I could not find the Mopar label product at a reasonable fare. I'm more about the science. She came back in and said the truck wont go forward or backward. We're concerned about the chemical engineering that goes into the replacement oil. Vehicle required a complete replacement of the entire rear axle assembly. Again shift threw the gears then check the fluid level.
Put 2 quarts in, start the engine and with your foot on the brake run the shifter threw the gears so the fluid will circulate. Shuttle shift and not wanting to shift out of first at all. Since I'm starting from zero I believe the expense will be justified assuming the top shelf fluids are truly better and not just a promotional stunt. Long story short towed vehicle into the shop the said the torque converter exploded, in turn took the pump and tranny out. Over the next 2 days I plan on getting the swap completed.
But I'm no expert nor do I have the ability or time to contact every person for their companies research paperwork lol. On the other hand, Mopar is not in the oil refining business, and its lubricants are private label products that come from reliable mainstream producers. The is a technical service bulletin for this issue. Unless instructed otherwise by the flushing machine manufacturer, I would clean the pan thoroughly and change the filter before flushing an automatic transmission. Do not simply wait around for your car or truck to have problems with overall performance loss and risk unanticipated failure. Now since this transmission is new and literally sitting on my shop floor now with zero miles, I wanted to start its life off with some quality fluids.
Okay, my topic is about transmission fluids. If the transmission fluid level on your Ram 1500 is low, you need to add fluid through the dipstick tube. Is it time to change transmission fluid in your Dodge Ram? You just don't want to over fill it. The latter point is crucial, as automatic transmission fluid does break down. My Dodge Ram 2500 van needed some transmission repair - and this did the trick. Now I know what your saying about equivalent and replacement. Or, examine the part in person at your nearest Advance Auto Parts location.
I will take plenty of pictures of the transmission upgrade to share with you guys later. This coincided with a boost to 610 lb-ft torque and 325 horsepower from the Cummins 5. However, it's safe to say that there are traditional oil producers at North America that do make equivalent products. This uplifting view will come as a shock to those who cruise truck forums and find the cryptic remarks and negative comments about these transmissions. Had the vehicle towed to a shop and they found that the pinion nut was loose, the pinion bearings were chewed up, the pinion gear was bent, and the rear end pinion bearing housing was scarred. Waahoo, what about the other 3?. That inventory means we either have the exact brand part you need, or plenty of options to compare.
