Your statement is a little inconclusive. Will the transmission shift when the engine is turned off, but not shift when the engine is running? If it is jammed and refusing to move even with the engine off, the problem will be inside the gearbox and usually related to the selector forks and or rods. If the the problem is there only when the engine is running the problem will be related to the clutch assembly, which is failing to disengage the gearbox from the engine
Manual transmission is a stick shift. You have to manually change the gears using the shifter and the clutch.
If I'm not mistaken, it appears that your truck is a "manual transmission"? There would be no indicator light - you shift into first gear, and then as you approve about 10 or 15 mph you would shift to second. I recommend the "learning manual transmission for dummies" - actually a very well written instruction book on learning how to shift.
My truck has a Fuller UltraShift automatic-shift transmission. I decide whether I want to go forward or backward. I step on the brake pedal and press the button that corresponds to the way I want to go, and the transmission shifts itself. There's a button on the shift console for "manual" and if pressed, you use up and down keys to shift. If you do this, it's just like shifting a fully manual transmission except you don't have to shift the rear end yourself and there's no clutch. My truck has had six drivers including myself and none of us have ever pushed the manual button.
your slave cylinder is bad or empty,so the clutch isn't disengaging.replace it,fill it with brake fluid,bleed the line,and it should work fine
Manual, yesAuto, no. The shift control systems are different.Manual, yesAuto, no. The shift control systems are different.
you can find the switch by looking underneath the truck right below the stick shift
Most of the Isuzu npr trucks holds 6 and a half quarts of transmission oil.
Need more information. Namely, what the truck and transmission is, and whether it's a transmission fault, or you just not knowing how to shift it.
Your truck may not shift gears because the transmission sensor is damaged or broken. It also may not shift gears because the transmission or linkage is damaged.
There's a number of details which would be pertinent to know here and are not present. Whether it has an automatic or manual transmission (and, if a manual, whether its a regular synchronised transmission or an unsynchronised progressive shift transmission), whether it has air or hydraulic brakes, etc.
A/T the same place you check it. Manual transmission, on the upper side of the transmission under the truck.A/T the same place you check it. Manual transmission, on the upper side of the transmission under the truck.
Yes, a 4x4 truck can have a manual transmission, now if the question is if the Dodge Ram 4x4 is available with a manual transmission, I don't know.
The transmissions aren't made by Freightliner, and this answer applies to all commercial truck manufacturers. A fully automatic transmission is clutch free. An autoshift basically adds a synchroniser gear and computer operated shift mechanism to a manual transmission, and still uses a clutch. With an autoshift, poor clutch manipulation often causes the synchroniser gear to go out, making the transmission unable to shift. On a fully automatic transmission, that problem does not exist.
Auto - fill it from the dipstick tube.Manual - remove the shift lever and fill from the top.
That's going to depend on what transmission you have. In most cases, they shift in a similar fashion to any other Class 8 truck with an unsynchronised transmission. But some have other transmission types.
There could be a number of reasons why your truck will not shift properly. There could be something wrong with your clutch or transmission.
Example sentence - The transmission in the truck would not shift correctly.

You cannot convert an automatic transmission to a manual one, but you can replace the automatic with a manual. It is a big job and if you do not do it your self would probably cost a lot more than selling the automatic truck and buying a manual truck. The manual will require different shift linkage, adding clutch pedal and parts to actuate the clutch, and you may need a drive shaft of different length. It is also common for automatics and manuals to use different rear axle ratios, and even the Electrinic Control Module and some wiring may need to be changed. Maybe that automatic is not so bad after all.
If you have a manual transmission, put it in neutral, release the clutch, press the clutch, then shift the transfer case. By double clutching it allows the transfer case to sync up. Come to a complete stop and place the transmission in neutral. Then shift the transfer case.
Shift the transmission into N first, then pull the transfer case into LO-LOC or HI-LOC, for a automatic trans, or 4HI, or 4LO for a manual transmission. Put transmission back into drive and take off. If your truck has manual locking hubs, they will need to be turned to LOCK to engage the front axle.
