  1. Failure to upshift

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    I've been driving my 2019 1500 with no issues for a month, but got on the highway today, after 3 blocks of normal performance, and it wouldn't shift up from (I'm guessing) 3rd gear. 50mph at 5000rpm despite letting off and getting back on the pedal. I shut it off, restarted, and it was fine, but...
  2. AMT shifting 'delay'

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    Recently, my van started shifting strangely. It doesn't happen all the time, but when I upshift in manual mode, there seems to be a delay in the transmission completing it's shift between 1-2, 2-3, and 3-4. It goes into gear, but about two seconds later, it lurches very slightly. It does not...

Should I be worried about that still even though this has a new transmission? What questions should I ask before I go and see and buy? And what kinds...

  6. How to Down Shift Transmission?

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    I have a 2017 gas 3500. It's been converted to a camper and is near the GVWR. My question has to do with how to operate the transmission. I can't figure out how to get the transmission to operate in a lower gear when I need it to. When driving up steep hills sometimes the transmission remains in...
