first off welcome to the Garage!
Do you have any mods done to the truck yet? If you have any serious mods, fueling box, injectors things of that nature, that would be the most likely reason.
Other than that, maybe ur TV cable needs adjustment, or possibly a PCM issue. If you call Bill or Stephen at DTT 1-886-504-4002 they will probably be able to greatly assist you with your question, they are experts with dodge diesel transmissions. Dave Goerend from Goerend transmission could as well, but I don't have his number. If the truck is stock, my guess is that it needs to be adjusted.
Do you tow really heavy loads with the truck, that could also put a tranny out.

Welcome to TDG!
I had the same problem with my truck when it was stock. Yeah you might have to adjust the cable, but i took mine to the local dodge dealership and I forgothow much they charged but the had to flash the computer for the tranny. That seemed to do the trick for me, then again it just might be the cable.

could be either really. 62000 shouldn't be the trans itself, especially if the truck is stock. But you never know. In my experience these transmissions start by slipping the converter badly and or searching for gears, that doesn't sound like what you're describing. I would imagine its your PCM, sometimes electronics go bad. But it wouldn't hurt to change the fuild and the filter and see if that gets you anywhere.

wow, that is impressive. I haven't seen too many trucks do that, in fact I can safely say thats the first I've heard of. usually on stock trucks, these tranny's seem to do relatively well in my experience even towing. but thats just what i've seen which compared to how many trucks there are out there, is just a tiny fraction of a percent.

:iagree

The downfall of the Dodge trannys, the Ford E4OD, and the Generals' Allison is modding. They were designed to do a job at a certain amount of HP and TQ. Of course by human nature a little more is good so a lot more is better when it comes to anything. Well we ask more of the trannys than they were originally designed to handle and they break. Then we get mad and upset that they are junk when we have caused our own problems. When the Allison came out everyone thought it was the next coming. Well they were the thing for about 2 years. Now everyone sees they are just like all other autos, they break too. The only difference is they were built to hold 400hp from the factory and the other brands were built to hold 250-300hp.

You know besides the exception of costing more us manual guys have the same issues. Although instead of clutches, valve bodies and torque coverters, we just need clutches. You hear far less complaining from the manual crowd when they have to upgrade clutches, mostly we just do it and move on. While a lot of the auto guys jump up and down and can't believe that POS broke. Now I know a clutch is a lot less than built tranny, but it's like this. You know when you buy one or the other what's going to happen, so you might as well just accept it and move on.

Anything can break at anytime. Knowing this and coupling it with doubling and in some cases tripling the amount of HP, you have to be ready to pay if you want to play.
