A + Transmission Specialist Reviews (1)
I brought my 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 5.9L Cummins 4x4 in for a transmission fluid change in August 2013. The previous weekend we had hauled horses 5 hours, and the truck functioned perfectly. I let the shop change the fluid, and they found small metal dust in the transmission pan on the magnet (normal wear) and recommended an inspection as the truck had 150,000 miles. I allowed it. They then recommended a full transmission rebuild. I was originally told one week on the repairs. I learned later that week that they did not receive the correct parts from the supplier, and needed additional time Again, I allowed it. Since then, the truck has not functioned correctly.Directly after the rebuild, the Check engine light with code P1740 (transmission TCC/OD solenoid) would not turn off. I had the truck into the shop an additional 2-3 times to correct this issue over the next few months. They could not, even after replacing the OD solenoid. Finally, after over 1000 miles of driving did the light turn off. The transmission then started leaking in January 2014, approximately 5000 miles after the first rebuild. Since I live out of town, I kept the fluid topped off and within operable range. The transmission then started to slip. I drove the vehicle back to the shop, approximately 100 miles. The shop again recommended a full rebuild.After being told that the repair would take a week, I called at week's end. I was told the parts they supplied were incorrect, so it would be another week. After waiting again, I called again, only to find that they did not receive correct parts again. I was able to finally get my truck back more than two weeks after originally dropping off my only vehicle. The transmission will still hang up and slip between some gears.I am not convinced the first rebuild was even necessary, and the transmission problems this truck has had have been generated by this shop's repair work.
