My 2007 dodge 2500 with the six speed automatic transmission

Customer Question

my 2007 dodge 2500 with the six speed automatic transmission will shift fine when cool but when it warms up the transmission starts out in first, then shifts hard and sticks in fourth gear. sometimes I can turn the truck off for a few minutes and it will work fine again for a while
JA: How many miles are on the car? Is it the original transmission?
Customer: 150,000 on the original trans
JA: Are you fixing your B2500 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I had the filter and fluid changed but did not help
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

Hey how are you

when you drained fluid did you find any metal shavings in it ?

did you have it scanned with factory scanner or equivalent to read tcm module faults ?

Please let me know

Thank You

I had my mechanic do the fluid and filter change while he had the truck in for an A/C repair so I don't know what he found. There is nothing in the report about shavings and I don't know if he scanned it.
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 2 months ago.

usually that is a valve body issue

but i suggest have it scanned with Chrysler scanner or equivalent make sure no fault codes, no low pressure issues, shift solenoid tcc solenoids , this way we are accurate

if you are not sure on the fluid ,do it again if it persist ,especial if you use it for moving heavy stuff

the trans cooler could be clogged ,so i suggest replacing it or check the flow of it ,common issue
