Customer Question
I drive a dodge...

I drive a dodge ram 1500. In the mornings especially cold ones the truck requires a lot of throttle to start moving. At the first couple of stops it dies. At times you can prevent it by removing pressure from the break and allowing forward motion to continue. Recently felt like trans was slipping. Feels and smells a lot like transmission problems though it could be engine related. Have also head of this being tied to break sensors and or engine timing. Need some guidance.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the level of your transmission fluid? Is it bright red, or is it dirty?

Its dirty

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Ram 1500?

2004

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ram 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Replacing torque sensor, changed transmission fluid filter and cleaning throttle body

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Have recently changed the front breaks and have history of coolant issue also possible is a misfiring cylinder

When you come to a stop and it tries to stall, does it feel like the transmission is wanting to pull forward more so than what is normal?
