Just got my Ram 1500 out of the shop after the
transmission shop for an occasional "kick" while
driving. Found something loose in the valve body
and replaced a solenoid pack. They drove it 200
miles to make sure it was ok. No problems. I get
it back and run errands for a ciuple hours and it
slams to a complere stop with squealing tires and
all while im going 40 mph. Felt like I hit a brick
wall. What the heck would do this? Please help!
These transmissions are sky high costing but you need a new one, The only thing I have ever heard of causing a trans to lock up and slide to a stop is a gear breaking or a large chunk of metal getting in between the gears in the trans which is terminal, buy another trans, if used one make sure it is good first, I really do not recommend a rebuilt unit unless it is from a very good builder. A good used one or new.
Maybe it isn't your tranny, a busted ring and pinion would do the same thing, I am suspicious of what you called a "kick" that could have been the pinion jumping over a bad tooth, it has to be just right too do so, just another thought.
