Today i went to the dealer to get back my Ram 08. I left it there on Monday to have the EGR replace, driver door adjusted and driver seat repair.
After 2 miles engine stop at a red light, Start the truck again and pull it on the side of the road to check the EGR (EGR is brand new) I close the hood and put in drive...now the tranny is slippering... Stop the truck, put it in Park...put it back on drive...now it's stuck in first gear...so i drove it back up to the dealer in first gear...
After a road test with the man who did the repair at the dealer everything is fine...
All they can say is to let it warm up 10 to 15 minutes before putting it in drive (Today tempeture was 0 C or 32 F . Before i left the dealer the 1st time i had to clean the 3 inchs of snow on it (So it did warm up a good five minutes but that is not enough for a HEMI...!!!)
So how long do you let your engine and tranny warm up when it's really cold outside?

better to start the truck and after about 10 seconds start driving, not hard just normal easy driving, the oil warms up faster there for less wear and tear on the engine... it takes allot longer idling to warm the oil and everything up then when your cruising down the road... especially the tranny no heat produced sitting in park.
