What Is a Ram Manual Transmission?

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.

What are the common problems in a Ram manual transmission?

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.

How we diagnose transmission problems

If you come to us with a transmission problem, we’ll ask you to detail what you’ve been experiencing. Afterwards, we can inspect your Ram and run tests as necessary. Some common signs of Ram manual transmission problems include:

  • Slipping into neutral
  • Lack of acceleration
  • Hard shifting
  • Odd noises

Denise and Shawn were an absolute pleasure to deal with. The price, and turn around time was incredible. My truck was towed to this location on a Thursday afternoon and the transmission was replaced and finished by Friday 2pm. They checked all my fluids, etc. After dealing with a complete nightmare with the GM dealership and one of the worst weeks of my life. Denise honestly helped us out a ton and I couldnt be more appreciative. If I could give them 10 stars I would. Highly recommend!

Chantelle Kaiser
I'd recommend this shop to anyone looking for quality service, through evaluating, and timely responses! Upon calling for an concern reguarding my 2006 Yaris. Janice was exceptionally kind and informative, allowing my car to be taken in within a time frame that was excellent. She informed me about what their technicians would be doing upon given a diagnosis. Whilst having their technicians test drive my car and doing an inspection of my area of concern. As a first-time car owner, they reassured me throughout the entire process. Explaining everything along the way, I knew I could trust them given their transparency and willingness to answer questions. Upon picking my car up today, they allowed me to take a test drive with their technician Rob! He was amazing at answering many questions in a way that educated me ! Thank you Rob for giving that extra reassurance for my car! The owners Shawna and Dave are exceptionally personable and evidently passionate about their business. I'm exceptionally greatful for the time everyone took to help me in a stressful time. 100% recommended giving your business to this wonderful team!

Very happy with the work done by Kyle and his team. They took great care of my Dodge Journey - did a necessary overhaul of its transmission, stayed true to the quote provided, and had it ready when they said it would be. Glad to have it back again, and will highly recommend this business to others.
