Customer Question
I have a 2016...

I have a 2016 ram. I have been having problems with the transmission, Sometimes when I put it in drive or rev it will slam real hard and the PRND will go yellow and if in drive it would be equilant to 3rd gear and the check engine light will come on I have had it to happen going down the road at high speed. It would slide all 4 rear tires and engine would over rev

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

It stays on

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

No I have been taking it back to dodge dealer 7 times from 200 miles it has 17000 on it now

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

Thats all I can think of
