Most Canadians drive vehicles with automatic transmissions, but certain Ram vehicles, including older versions of the Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500, have manual transmissions. Manual transmissions are also called stick-shifts, manual gearboxes, and standard transmissions. When driving a manual transmission vehicle, you must shift gears yourself with the clutch and gas pedals. The clutch is the first stage in the transmission and the gearbox is the second. The gearbox is at the rear of the engine, with the clutch between the gearbox and the engine. Manual transmissions typically range from three to six different gear ratios.
Ram trucks communicate power and ruggedness. But this doesn’t mean their transmissions are indestructible. Far from it, a little over a decade ago, when they were still Dodge Rams, there was a significant recall over failing transmissions. Ram transmissions have been much better since then, but there are some common issues.
Some Ram manual transmissions have made loud popping noises, indicating something has fallen out of place within the transmission. Others experience hard shifting. When you notice any transmission issues, it’s wise to bring your Ram to Mister Transmission for inspection as soon as possible.
