I am going to change my transmission filter on my 1999 dodge 1500 5.9l 4x4 automatic tonight. How many qts of trans fluid should I buy? I am guessing it is Dexron Mercon 3? I don"t have my manual with me and I want to pick it up on the way home from work. Did all 99"s have the same automatic trans in them?The past two days it will not shift down to first gear by itself and takes off in 2nd and I want to try and see if clean fluid will help it.

Do not put Dexron lll in your tranny unless you want to replace it soon. Dodge RAMs use either ATF +3 or +4 fluid (+4 has been approved for use in units that previously called for +3).

I just did mine & installed a cooler. If your gonna just drop the pan your looking at 4 quarts. It holds 9 quarts total.You can disconnect the return line to the rad & put in a bucket start & run in nuetral will pump most of it out.Also that type 4 fluid for chryslers i found is a fully synthetic fluid, runs about $6 a quart! Ouch.

I did some reasearch and found that is it the ATF +4. Also found out that all ATF+4 are synthetic and chrysler approves many different brands ( including the cheap oreilly, walmart, etc brands) to be just as good as the expensive MOPAR atf+4. Anychance this might fix my problem? Or should I go have it diagnosed at a trans shop ASAP.

Where did you install the cooler and how long did it take you. I won"t have the time soon but with me pulling a race car with the truck it won"t hurt to have an additional cooler.Also is it better to mount the cooler inline before or after the factory cooler that is built into the radiator?

I put it in front of the A/C condenser right in the middle, doesnt take long at all once you have the hoses & clamps. It came with 4 plastic connecter ties to mount it on the a/c coil.

I have never seen a problem corrected by the changing of fluid unless it was related to a low fluid level. Places like AAMCO will diagnose it for free, in most cases.

Get the codes pulled 1st as most likely the governer transducer or soleniod are bad if it doesn"t downshift to 1st and both are inside the pan.

Thanks... this is what I wanted to hear. The check engine light also came on this morning. Will have codes read before I buy parts. Are both of these easy to install? I am mechanically sound but have no experience with automatic transmissions. Are these parts simply bolt out and bolt back in?
Problem code P1756It is saying shift solenoid for Mazda and Ford or low fluid. Fluid is fine and I checked in neautral after going through the gears after a 30 mile drive.For chrysler it is sayingGovernor pressure not at expected levels.Internal trans. failureOpen or short circuit conditionWhat is this governor? I can"t find this part anywhere.

Well I have been calling around. I found a place near by had them for 145 total. That is 45 more dollars than transmissionpartsusa.com but I would have to pay for shipping at transpartsusa. I have been calling around and one shop said these just dont go out for no reason. He says there is normally metal that sticks to them and causes them to go out.But reading story after story online everyone seems to say these fixed there problems for good.
