I have transmission problems.when i take off my truck reves up really high
and it goes real slow.I changed the filter and fluid in trans.It drove
like a new truck for about 10 miles then it started to do the same thing
all over again.Please help me. It is a 1999 dodge Ram 1500 318 v8 with
the check engine light was on but i took it in to have the inspection and
breaks done and the light was off when i picked it up.I'm not sure what
you mean about TV cable adjusted properly? I tried manual shifting but it
still no difference.no better when it shifts to second.when it finally
gets to drive it will be ok untill i have to climb a hill,then it boggs
Get someone to scan for any codes - particularly any relating to governor
The TV (throttle valve) cable is a cable attached to the throttle linkage,
and controls the throttle valve on the transmission. It basically increases
line pressure in the transmission as more throttle is applied. If it's
adjusted too loose, you can get problems like you describe. There should be
no slack in the TV cable - it should begin to move as soon as the throttle
begins to open.
Have you checked the adjustment on the bands when you did the fluid change?
Sounds like the tranny clutch are worn out or there is some bad seals
but you are not going to fix it without some tearing into it some of
completely. If this ia a 4x4 with oversized tires and stock gears you
did good to get the mileage you did out of it.
