My dodge update
After taking it to a 3 rd respected tranny mechanic he claims it’s fixed. Seems the dodge engenders in there infante wisdom doesn let the torque converter pump at idle. Probbly for gas miladge sales
Gimik Causing oil starvation and heat build up causing transmission to fail
A sift kit to bump pressure and a kit to make it pump at idle.
If this doesn’t fix it I’m putting a Chevy 700 r4 in it

My god, if the trans is less reliable than a 700r4 it must be a huge POS.

I was thinking that same thing.

I will say I have had two (06 and a 14) with manuals before I got the current 20 with the Aisin cause I never wanted to deal with their transmissions. The Aisin seems very well built. Just turned 45K miles on it, mostly towing between 25-35K pounds and it is definitely the strongest truck I have owned to date and the transmission and exhaust brake in Tow/Haul is really darned good. Wasn't sure how I would like the auto but so far, I am pretty happy.

Man, that is a truck I wished I'd kept. Mine was a 5.9 Cummins with the 6 speed. I added a PacBrake and air bags to mine. What a pullin SOB it was. I had 238K on it when I traded it and it still ran and drove literally like it did when I picked it up with 2 miles on it.

I kept my 07 5.9 srw for a daily driver. For back and forth to work and running around it’s easier to get in places than my new cab and chassis. I’ve never had anything like the new truck out on the road though. Like beretzs said the brakes on them are amazing. Pretty wild towing over the divide and leave the cruise set going up and going off. Crazy to me but like I said I went from a 07 to a 2020. The 07 has been and still is a dandy as far as I’m concerned.

That 07 with the 5.9 is a darned gem. Might be worth as much in today’s market as when it was new. That is a helluva engine.

It’s served me well. It had 130k on it when I got it and had close to 250k now. The only things I can think of worth mentioning is I put in new injectors around 200k and a rear main seal. Even with the old 4 speed auto ive towed horses from south florida georgia western Montana Colorado Utah and it’s never missed a beat. I am pretty partial to the new one when we travel. It’s my first new truck and we couldn’t be happier with it.

I hear you. I’ve got a 2020 HO and man, it moves like no other stock truck I’ve ridden or driven.

Reliable transportation to get you to the train station.

You bet buddy, i'll repair oy old '06 for as long as i can, i had the Cummins exhaust brake installed on mine the day bought it new, great feature, a little shop time and a longer belt, simple addition, glad you guys are enjoying those new rigs.
