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.

Ram 2500 5.9L

  • Automatic transmission

My Husband and I have a 98 dodge 2500 cummings turbo diesel 5.9 that we have been told it was the transmission or torque. When you get it up to about 40 to 45 MPH it doesn't want to shift right. We even changed the transmission filter and fluids. It still does not want to shift right and keeps getting worse. The truck has 170,000 miles on it. Does anyone have any suggestions or know what it may be?
