😭😭 I have to replace my front lower control arms and rear lowers, uppers, trailing arm already and yesterday turns out my transmission is going.

2015 Ram 1500 5.7 hemi with 3.92 gearing.

$5000 for a refabbed one. Chrysler doesn't even get new ones made because they are apparently over 10 grand :mad:

What went out on it and what were the symptoms

I have a similar vintage BMW with the same trans
Big lurch when cold start going 1st to 2nd.

Yesterday they pulled the pan and drained the fluid. Suppose to be clear/yellow and it's been cooked. Also fine metal shavings.

yeah, gotta change the fluid 2x as often as the book says....'severe duty' is basic erryday truck usage

manufacturer just wants to get past the warranty miles, after that they dont care how long it lasts

I've done my trans fluid twice since owning it, book says it's good for lifetime but because of the long haul and trailer I do it every 90k

its good for the lifetime of the warranty

keep the fluid clean, keep the fluid in the temp range needed

and then pray

i have 350,000kms on my 98xj, 340,000km on other 98xj, and 190,000kms on my cruze diesel....changed overdrive solenoid on one of the xjs, thats it

Did they use the proper mopar equivalent zf fluid

that shit is ludicrously expensive but according to zf you’re supposed to get it changed every 60
