Started last winter, when I put trans in drive it hesitated about 5 seconds before moving forward. It's now doing it in warmer weather. What could be causing this? Thanks


Still looking for LM29H1B415501, '71 Demon 340

When was the last time you changed the fluid a filter in the trans.

the filters are know to seperate at the plastic/metal conection and suck air causeing weird stuff, seen it a few times myself.


I am not causing global warming, I am just trying to hold off a impending Ice Age!

There's a TSB on the problem:

http://dodgeram.info/tsb/2006/21-007-06.htm


NUMBER: 21-007-06

GROUP: Transmission

DATE: April 07, 2006

THIS BULLETIN SUPERSEDES TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN 21-016-05, DATED SEPTEMBER 01, 2005, WHICH SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM YOUR FILES. THIS IS A COMPLETE REVISION AND NO ASTERISKS HAVE BEEN USED TO HIGHLIGHT REVISIONS.

SUBJECT:
RFE Transmission Filters - Delayed Engagement And Related Transmission DTC'S

OVERVIEW:
This bulletin involves verifying the build date of the transmission, and if necessary, the replacement of both the cooler return and sump filters in the transmission.

MODELS:

2005 - 2006 (DR) Ram Truck

2005 - 2006 (HB) Durango

2005 - 2006 (KJ) Liberty / Cherokee

2005 - 2006 (ND) Dakota

2005 - 2006 (WK / WH) Grand Cherokee

2006 (XK) Commander

NOTE:
This bulletin applies to vehicles equipped with the a 45RFE or a 545RFE automatic transmission (sales code DG4 or DGQ respectively) having a specific transmission build date code (see the below DIAGNOSIS section for further details).

SYMPTOM/CONDITION:

The customer may experience an initial delayed shift engagement following an extended off (not running) period of time, generally after being parked overnight. The initial shift engagement may feel like a delay or slip when a transmission gear (reverse or drive) is first selected after engine start.


I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

I get the same thing sometimes in my 2007 Ram. I shift from drive to park and back a couple of times and it works fine afterward.
I change the fluid and filters sooner than the factory schedule. It has done this from about 40,000 miles to the current 312,000 miles.
