Hard down shifting

Asked by May 12, 2018 at 02:31 PM about the 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad Cab RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 (4.7) with 221K miles is starting to down shift hard
when decelerating.   Right when it hits 30 MPH and is slowing, a hard down
shift can be felt.  It only occurs when I approach 30 MPH.   Regular up shifting
is not a problem.   The truck runs and shifts up fine.  Any ideas?

I have read every comment on this page. A lot of good information. I just done know about yours. I'm having issues but mine will not shift up out off 1st.
