      I have never seen anything but a new transmission solve this. In my 36 years fixing vehicles of all kinds.

      Time for a rebuild bud! Your clutches in your transmission are worn out. The reason why it went into gear before, was because the clutch material that had worn off of the clutches was suspended in the transmission fluid, and would at least allow your truck to move. Now that you have put new fluid in, and put a new filter in, there is no clutch material in the fluid and the clutches can't do anything but slip past each other. Tow your truck to the nearest transmission shop and have them take a look. I can just about guarantee this is the case. a rebuild for a 4x4 ram around MN is looking at about $1,500-$2200 with new torque converter, removal and installation at a small town shop. Dealership would probably be double that.

      My experience comes from working at a small transmission shop in Alexandria, MN. Best of luck to you, and I hope your wallet doesn't take too big of a ding!
      P.S.
      -If the place you have your transmission rebuilt at doesn't offer to put a new torque converter in, find a different shop. Never re-use a torque converter.
      -Make sure the transmission lines get flushed
      -Have the shop change your transfer case fluid while they have the transmission out. Good preventative maintenance! and I can't remember off hand if the transfer case shares the same transmission fluid or not.

    Whining noise in trans.while driving.
    Does a whining noise coming from auto. trans. necessarily mean that the trans. is on the way out?The transmission is still shifting fine but I wonder.

      change fluid and filter and see if that corrects problem. if not, pump probably making whine and there will be a rebuild in your near future.

      Thanks for your reply.A B.G.flush was done on the trans. two years in succession and when I check the fluid it is always clean.Only when the vehicle is parked for long periods fluid leaks from what seems to be a solenoid at the top rear of the trans.Iwould like to change the seal but don't want to trouble it before I learn more about it as I'm not sure as to how to get it out.The van was off the road for 3mths. with brake trouble and a lot of fluid leaked out.Of couse I replaced the fluid and i

      I can't help wondering if the speedometer cable or the speedometer itself could be sticking for what ever reason.

      It sounds like a solenoid problem.Get a scan done for free at autozone or elsewhere and see if there is a P code num.

      Might be a bad rear universal joint. Don't overreact and think the rear is blown.

      This vehicle is still under the 3 years or 36,000 miles warranty bumper to bumper. Call Dodge Dealer to schedule a repair warranty.

      There are a hundred factors which can cause poor gas mileage. One of the main causes is a dirty air filter. Low tire pressure, bad driving habits, transmission torque converter clutch failure, transmission slipping, stuck choke plate,etc. http://www.spobd2.com/

    How to adjust the transmission range sensor linkage

      Here is my take on things with adjusting that. In all my years of fixing cars I have never successfully adjusted a transmission range sensor to solve a no start. If the sensor is not allowing the engine to start, in almost all cases (100% for myself) the sensor has to be replaced.

      Several possibilities; faulty / worn axle bearing, rear differntial fluid level is low, rear differential bearing is worn. As a first step - check the fluid level and refill as necessary. Use SAE API GL80-90 weight gear oil

      Simple, replace the driveshaft u-joints or at least the bad one. You have described the sound of a bad universal joint.
