Transmission overheating

Asked by Jul 30, 2017 at 12:23 AM about the 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr Laramie SLT 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So i have a 1999 dodge ram 1500 4x4 and i just put
in a rebuilt transmission not even 5000 miles ago.
If i leave and go for a good trip somewhere, and
theres any kind of breeze or wind. My trani is
constantly switching gears and eventually the O/D
off light comes on, then runs about 2800/2900
rpms and then the trani starts over heating. I know
my truck is in need of rear diff fluid change bad.
But what else could cause this? The torque
converter is remanufactured too. So if yall have a
solution to my problems, that would be great and
very much appreciated! Thanks in advance!
