  1. Promaster General Discussion Forum
    Hello -- I've been living full time in our converted 2020 ProMaster 3500 159" WB Ext for almost 2 months now. Van life has been great, but the van has had a couple of issues. Most recently while in North Carolina, it's been going into limp mode. This seems to only happen right at start up...

    I was going down the highway about 65 mph. Came to a stop and warning light came on to service transmission. I shut the engine off on the side of the road. I start it back up and now it is stuck in neutral. Cannot get it out of N now. On a road trip and currently on the side of the road in...

    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...

    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...

    I recieved notice of a recall on my 2015 Ram City Passenger Wagen for the cooling fan; V54, I believe it was. Scheduled the service 2½ hrs away because the local Chrysler dealership isn't doing recalls, they said. Not the scary part. I found a dealership in Chehalis; I-5...

    Found a great deal on a 2014 V6 Promaster 2500 with 116k miles and a new transmission. I know that there were some transmission issues with these. 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...

    I have 2014 PM 3500 with 140,000 miles on it. It is a diesel with the automatic manual transmission. Just got it a month ago, built it into a camper, and am currently on a 2 week trip in the PNW with it. Here is the problem. Anytime I am going down hill the van doesn't seem to want to shift...
  8. 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...
