What Does Your Ram 3500 Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed.

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Ram 3500 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, 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.

2018 Ram 3500 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Ram's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Ram? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your 3500 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my 3500's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Ram 3500 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Ram's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
