  1. Cheap Alternative to Mopar Transmission Pan

    RAM 1500 Diesel Maintenance
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/264645659904 The $35 pan i bought and installed on my 2014 ecodiesel zf8 trans. It has 4 magnets in the pan just like the the mopar pan, filter element looks similar to the mopar one also. I only have a 1,000 mi on it so far with the valvoline maxlife tranny flyid but...
  2. Coolant in transmission

    RAM 1500 Diesel Mechanical
    Please help. I'm currently deployed in the middle east. I had my wife take our 2015 ram 1500 diesel into our local dealership in response to a recall. She mentioned that she had been concerned about the truck accelerating. She just forwarded me the email from the dealership below. I'm not the...
  3. Crankshaft Position Sensor / Reluctor Plate

    RAM 1500 Diesel Maintenance
    Does anyone know off the top of their head if the dealer changes the transmission fluid when they change the crankshaft position sensor and reluctor plate? I had mine done 10,000ish miles ago when the magnets failed, but it doesn't say on my repair order if they changed the trans fluid. I'm...
  4. 2019 1500 Eco hard shift at slow speeds

    RAM 1500 Diesel Transmission
    Hello Everyone, I recently purchased a 1500 EcoDiesel. So far really liking the truck but I have noticed one little mechanical issue that I am unsure of. I have about 175km on the truck but I'm noticing a delay in shifting (mainly up a gear) and it occasionally clunks into second off of a stop...
  5. Won’t shift in to drive

    RAM 1500 Diesel Mechanical
    Truck would not shift out of park, had it towed to dealer, tow truck driver was able to manually release transmission to tow onto flat deck. Dealer said there was no issue and no codes? Has anyone had similar issues? Has less than 20,000 km on truck.
  6. Transmission not shifting correctly, not sure I trust the dealer.

    RAM 1500 Diesel Transmission
    I've got about 56000 miles on my 2015 ecodiesel and the transmission is no longer shifting properly. It appears to slip in 3rd or 4th, won't go into 8th, and once it gets into 7th it won't shift below 6th even after stopped, it will go back to normal once I've turned the truck off and on again...
  7. Transfer case shaking on take off

    RAM 1500 Diesel Suspension - Chassis
    New guy here. I have a 15 bighorn with some strange issues. I placed my GoPro underneath and found the tail piece of the transfer case to shake violently during takeoff. The truck is at the dealership and has been for weeks. They've replaced the transmission mounts and put two different drive...
  8. Weird Gear Shift

    RAM 1500 Diesel Mechanical
    My Ram is revving a few hundred RPMs higher between 3rd and 4th gear. This only happens under moderately-aggressive acceleration or when towing. If I a accelerate a little more aggressively, this will not happen. Similarly, if I accelerate so the transmission shifts at around 2050-2100 RPMs...
  9. Transmission Fluid Change Interval

    RAM 1500 Diesel General Discussion
    The latest diesel supplement from Ram's website provides no mileage/time interval for the replacement of the transmission fluid and filter for the Ecodiesel Ram 1500. Is there a recommended interval to have this serviced, or is it a "lifetime" fluid since it is a "sealed" system? TurboDieselPoint
