    We have a 2019 promaster 1500 with a failed transmission and sitting at the dealership since 2023 June. There's maybe 50,000km on it. We first had issues with the car not being able to reverse when put into gear, and upon bringing it to the dealership, we were told we need an entire...

    4WD system overheating performance reduced

    There was a good amount of snow fall today and I decided it would be fun to go do some “burnouts” as the snow will just protect the tires and it will be a good time. What I did weren’t even burnouts I just turned off traction control, put it on 2wd and hit the gas didn’t even hit brakes . The...

    Noise When Downshifting into First

    Vehicle: 2019 Ram 1500 BH - 40k miles Audio: About three months ago I noticed a “dun dun” noise whenever my truck was slowing down to 8-12 from a previous speed of 45+. Seems to consistently make this noise given I was behind the 45+ range (driving around in subdivision doesn’t trigger it)...

    Fuel Pump Failure @ 40k miles - 2019 Ram 1500

    Long story short, just got a call from the dealer that the fuel pump failed on my 2019 1500 5.7 with 40,200 miles on it. Has anyone experienced this? It was purchased CPO and they told me earlier that I am still under a 60k mile powertrain warranty. Now they're telling me it's not covered and...

    2021 Ram Rebel With a Bad Transmission!

    HI guys, Hope you're all doing well. Check this out. So, I have a 2021 Ram Rebel with just 21,000km on it. This is what the problem is. When I start the truck in the morning, I let it run for a few minutes (It's summer, obviously a little longer in the winter) then I get going. I get a harsh...

    "Bump" when truck downshifts into 1st gear.

    Does anyone else experience an intermittent "bump" or "thud" when the truck downshifts into first gear? It seems to only happen about 50% of the time. It also almost feels like it lurches the truck forward as well.

    2019 Laramie 1500 Not Shifting Out of 1st Gear

    I purchased my 2019 RAM 1500 Laramie 5.7L in October of 2021 with 39,000 miles on it. During the first week, after starting cold, it would not shift out of 1st gear. I stopped, put it in Park and then back to Drive. It fixed the problem. It didn't happen again until last week and it happened...

    Operating temps on 2022 3500

    So I recently traded my 2021 2500 6.7 mega w/68RFE for a 2022 3500 DRW 6.7 w/68RFE. Both truck had same engine/tranny but the new 3500 runs significantly hotter under load. I’ve seen trans temp near 230, engine temp 250 and I believe coolant has been to around 240. My last truck never came close...

    Shifting at high RPM

    Does anyone else’s 2019 ram V6 shift at around 5,000 rpm going from 2 gear into 3? I’m pretty sure it’s between those gears but I’ll double check. Just seems odd and every time I’m driving I’m watching the RPM climb and waiting for it to shift. Thanks in advance

    CEL comes on and goes into limp mode

    My 2016 Ram 1500 Sport just went into limp mode and the cel came on. No other information is being offered in the display. I don’t have a OBD reader, and don’t want to take it 50 miles in limp mode to pay for a mechanic to tell me ”turn the key from “Off to Run five times “ or something like...

    Unusual "Scratchy/Rattle" sound coming from Transmission/Transfer case in 1st gear around 1700 RPM. 2019 Ram 5.7

    Hey Everyone! This is my first post on here and I am really hoping to find someone who experiences this in their 2019 Ram 1500 w/ 5.7 Hemi (no e-torque). I drive about 50 minutes to work and for the first half of my commute everything is peachy with the sounds coming from my truck. After it's...

    Transmission issue while towing

    While towing my boat my truck gets to a high RPM (4,000 to 4,500) before shifting and will not get out of 6th gear unless I let off the gas and let it down shift. I have video of me going 55mph in tow mode with cruise control set and it wouldn't shift up, it stayed at 4,000 rpm until I let off...

    Transmission or normal?

    I've notice with my 2020 Bighorn that when I'm almost at a complete stop I feel a bump like weight is shifting forward or trans is slightly slipping. Starting off again I feel that same thing but almost like weight is shifting back with a slight bump. It's hard to explain but I was wondering if...

    2021 1500 Limited 3.0L Ecodiesel Transmission Failure at 700 miles

    My first Ram experience is not starting out as I had hoped. I fell in love with the new Ram and decided to buy both a 2021 Limited 1500 and a 2021 Power Wagon. After three weeks of owning the 1500 with no signs of any issues from the transmission I was headed on a 440 mile road trip to pick up...

    2019 Ram Rebel: Transmission Issues

    Hello Ram Fam, I am about 11,000 miles into my 2019 Rebel (5.7 eTorque) and I have really loved it so far. HOWEVER, the transmission has (almost) never worked as I believe it should. I have put a lot of miles on cars with the ZF-8 transmission and believe it is undoubtedly the best automatic...

    Transmission is ruined

    So I have a 2019 1500 Bighorn 4x4, and it only has 5500 miles. I already need a new transmission because mine is burnt up. Dealership says it’s not going to cover it under warranty because the truck is “abused”. In reality, the truck is just dirty, and thoughts on how to get this fixed under...

    4wd Transmission binding

    Starting a new thread on this because I am not sure what is going on with my 2019 Rebel. It has severe binding if you turn in 4wd. I took it to the dealer and the service manager took it for a ride, then he drove another rebel on the lot. he then said "Since they both do it, it must be how it is...
