What Is a Ram Automatic Transmission?

Most models of Ram trucks and vans available in Canada come with automatic transmissions. An automatic transmission works by using sensors to determine when to shift gears, which it does by using internal oil pressure. An automatic transmission temporarily disconnects itself from the engine when shifting gears. This process is controlled by the lock-up in the torque converter, transferring power from the engine to the transmission via fluid coupling. By creating different gear ratios, an automatic transmission can speed up or slow down as directed by the driver.

What are the common problems in a Ram automatic transmission?

Ram markets its trucks as being rugged and powerful. There’s a lot of truth to this. But as anybody who uses a vehicle to regularly haul heavy loads can tell you, transmissions don’t always hold up in these circumstances. Ram transmissions need repairs and service like any other transmissions.

Some Ram transmission problems are common problems for any transmission model. These include overheating and erratic shifting. As with all transmissions, it’s important to ensure you have the right amount of transmission fluid in them at all times. Other problems seem to happen more to Ram models. These include a lack of acceleration and a high propensity to leak fluid.

How we diagnose transmission problems

At Mister Transmission, we have a formula for diagnosing and fixing transmission problems that has proven to be effective. The first step is to listen to what you have to say. Have you noticed any of these common signs of Ram automatic transmission problems?

  • Erratic shifting
  • Hard shifting
  • Overheating
  • Inability to accelerate properly
  • Fluid leaks

Modern Ram vehicles have onboard computers. Automobile computerization is a net positive, but it can make service and repair more complicated. Thankfully, we at Mister Transmission have the up-to-date diagnostic technology necessary to communicate with your Ram’s onboard computer.

To determine your transmission’s problem, we first connect our diagnostic equipment to your Ram’s onboard computer. This gives us a code indicating where the problem is. After an inspection and making any necessary adjustments, we can conduct a test drive. This shows us your transmission handles real-world conditions. Following this, a lift inspection or a pan examination may be necessary.
