I have an 01 dodge ram 1500 4x4 automatic. It has sat for about 2 months. I went to drive it today and it sounds like the transmission is whining when u rev it up or drive it. does not do in in reverse . does it in neutral and park if u rev it up and all forward gears. I checked the fluid and it is good. I also drove it down the road and it shifted in all gears no slipping or anything. Any ideas thanks. I was looking to sell it but don't want to if there is a problem. Thanks

01 ram 1500 4x4 5.2 automatic. It has sat a few months. I started it to drive today and in the tranny it sounds like a bad water pump or alternator whine. Does it in neutral park and all forward gears. Does get louder with increased engine speed. Does not seem to do it in reverse. Checked the fluid in neutral and it is good. It did not do this when I parkd it. Any ideas thanks.
Grab the FSM out of the DIY section, and search for Throttle Valve Cable. Essentially, it is the cable that runs from the throttle body down to the transmission. If it is out of adjustment, it will cause poor/erratic shifting, transmission wear, and ultimately noise and a burned out tranny.
