Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Ram 3500 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Ram 3500 transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your 3500 at all.

2017 Ram 3500 Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Ram's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Ram? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 3500’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my 3500's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2017 3500’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Ram. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
