Why won't my 6 speed shift into the top 3 gears

5

Asked by Jul 01, 2017 at 05:02 PM about the 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 08 ram 1500 3.7l v6, 6 speed manual trans. I just replaced my clutch,
and my throw out bearing. The clutch didn't need to be replaced, but the
bearing did, and since I had it apart I went ahead and changed it too. So now
the problem is that it doesn't like to shift into the top 3 gears (1,3,5), and if I
drive for more than 5 minutes my engine overheats. I did not have this shifting
problem prior to the clutch or bearing change, but it was overheating. I
assumed the over heat was due to the bearing being seized up and causing
extra stress on the engine. I have no idea what is going on, and any help would
be awesome.
