Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

problem #2

Jul 262011

Ram 1500

  • Automatic transmission
  • 113,000 miles


the transmission slipped w/o warning and we are in the middle of the desert (300 miles away from my residence) remove the pan and clean it good, removed the filter so i can just replace it when i get home. we were able to drove another 350 miles but when i started the engine and drove just few feet it slipped again. After about 2 hrs we figure it out to switch the gear from drive to neutral fast about three times and the damn transmission will work fine. we were able to drive another 450 miles and got home without any problem, however everytime we stop or slow down we need to switch the gear again from drive to neutral 3x and fast. So far i am thinking to replace the engine and transmission with diesel if possible. My next car willl not be a dodge that is for sure.
