Dodge ram p/u overdrive issue

\015 My dodge pick up will not down shift into over drive when going up hills, it is getting to the point that it grinds now even when the switch for over drive is turned off. does this mean i need a whole new transmission or with some luck a fluid filter change?? everything else on my truck is in perfect running order and the body is solid. i dont want to get rid of it but also dont trust many machanics for the truth on such an money making part....\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 30-11-2020

Grinds as in slowly creeps? or grinds as in metal noise?
\015\012Not shifting into overdrive,could be the kick down bands need adjusted.Or the kick down cable.
\015\012The cable is on the Throttle body side and should be lined up perfectly with the lug it goes on. Make sure you are not pulling on the cable or you will get a false indication of where it is. It has to be lined up with in a 32nd of an inch.. This is the baseline of where it would be in stock form. If you have it set like this and it wont shift until you let of it a little bit, then you need to loosen the cable a little bit. If you loosen it too much, you will have other problems..such as shifting too soon/late. It takes a while to get it how you want it. Start with making bold adjustments, you wont hurt anything, and see what it does. After you have a grasp as to what it doesn when you move the cable in either direction, make smaller adjustments..

You dont need a "tranny guy" to do this for you. If you dont know how to adjust the cable let me know and I or someone else on here will let you know how to do it, its.
