Transmission wont shift

my 98 dodge ram will not up shift to higher gears do i need a tranny or what

Give a little more information about what it’s doing. Does it simply stay in first gear without shifting at all, or does it try to shift and loses drive power, or what?

I might guess limp mode is the case, but some more details are needed about its behavior.

There are several common issues that cause shifting problems in your particular transmission. If you can be very specific about the symptoms I can probably narrow it down for you.


My brother had problems with his dodge transmisiion not shifting well or even getting it into drive. Me and my friend filled it up with oil and it works fine now. Transmissions need oil to work
