2nd Gen Ram Tech1994-2001 Rams: This section is for TECHNICAL discussions only, that involve the 1994 through 2001 Rams. For any non-tech discussions, please direct your attention to the "General discussion/NON-tech" sub sections.
I have a 97 Ram with a 5.9L and a 46re Auto Trans. After my transmission warms up it often likes to stay in 1st gear up to 4,000 rpms before it shifts and second gear also. Third gear, and Overdrive work great. Keep in mind it does not do this when I first take off........only after I drive for 10-15 minutes
Also the other night I pulled out to pass a car and when I kicked into 2nd gear it slipped and smacked the rev limiter and I let off real quick and it grabbed 2nd. It doesn't always slip that bad in 2nd....but before I assume the transmission needs rebuilt I would like some opinions.
1st gear sometimes up to 4,000 rpms,
2nd gear sometimes up to 4,000 rpms
Kick down into 2nd gear causes a slip enough to hit rev limiter
3rd gear good
