Customer Question
Hi! I have a...

Hi! I have a 2015 crew cab 2500 6.4 hemi and had to pull the head from drivers side to deal with an MDS lifter failure. Upon reassembly the truck runs perfect but my transmission is not acting normal. At highway speeds when I press the accelerator I hear a whine before it drops to 5th and the same occurs from 5th to fourth

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your transmission fluid last checked?

After the repair. It reads between the high and low dots at temp

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 2500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've checked all of the connections, lines, and fuses.

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

I have the digital cluster to monitor fluid temps and the trans temp rides around 210 at highway speeds

If it helps to know, the trans doesn't make the noise until the fluid is over 170 deg

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • WORK TIME, I am here 7 days a week but not all hours of the day, do not worry I will respond.
  • FEES, I am a user of the website like you, not an employee. Any fee or account questions need to be addressed to the website.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website. I or another may take the call if you request one.
  • UPLOADED LINKS, if I upload dropbox links, without the phone app use the box on the top right for direct download.
  • RATING ANSWERS, please let me know what you need from me so you are pleased with my answer.

It almost sounds like there is a burr in a solenoid that fluid is passing by and making noise. I would try a trans fluid service before going into the transmissionn to try and find a cause only making a noise but not causing a shifting concern.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5-star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
