Question From RichardGilpin on car noise

2006 dodge ram 2500 w/ cummins deisel engine. i hear a high pitch noise like a loose belt when I accelerate. never did this before until after i changed the transmission filter and fluid.

Response From kensoncustom

did the filter look the same as the one you took out they have a deep pan filter and a short pan filter.do you have gasket instaled properly?sounds a restriction

Response From RichardGilpin

yes, I compared the old filter to the new one, and they matched. the gasket installed correctly. I was thinking about changing the filter again.

Response From nickwarner

Did you change the fluid as routine maintenance or was this acting up a bit and you thought a fluid change would help?

Response From RichardGilpin

I changed the filter as routine maintanence, and also because it felt like the transmission was slipping when I turn a corner and accelerated, like maybe it was low on fluid.

Response From Sidom

It probably would've been a good idea to check the fluid level before you did the service just to verify if this was a low fluid problem or something more serious.

Tranny services like any other service is to be done as maintenance and not to correct a problem. With transmissions, if you let the maintenance go to a point where you are getting shifting issues. You've done serious damage to the tranny and it doesn't have long to live, even if the service has seemed to "help".

Now if it was just low, that would actually be a better thing but the leak would definitely need to be fix......

NOOOOOO...... you are an ex-spammer and gone

Response From RichardGilpin

no I did not change the oil cooler filter, only the transmission filter. there were no signs of any leaks. I was overseas for about a year and the truck stayed parked in the driveway. I had a family member start my truck about once a week and let it run for awhile just to keep the battires charged. when i returned from overseas and started driving again thats is when it felt like it was slipping when i turned a corner and accelerated. it would not slip from a normal stop and go, only when cornering.

Response From Sidom

Sitting can be very hard on a vehicle. It's good you were having it started but it's still not the same as driving it....
I'm guessing that you weren't way over on the mileage for the service and it may just be a seal getting hard and no sealing correctly. 1 year isn't a killer & hopefully the service & driving it again will take care of the shifting issue....

Is the noise still there? You may want to see if you can duplicate the noise while the truck is sitting still so you can trace down where it is coming from....It very well could be a belt. Rubber parts & the exhaust take sitting the hardest...

Response From Discretesignals

Sorry I made a boo boo post earlier. 48RE doesn't use an oil cooler filter even though the TSBs in the 48RE section were for the 45RFE / 545RFE.

Response From RichardGilpin

cant say for sure what type of transmission I have, but I was thinking it was the 44RE. the truck is a 2006 dodge ram 2500 mega-cab with the cummins diesel.

Response From Discretesignals

It's definitely not the 44RE. It's a 48RE.

Response From Discretesignals

If your brake torquing it and it is making the noise, you could have a torque converter problem if the noise is coming from the transmission. I'd run it to a transmission shop and let them have a listen.

sounds like the logical thing to do at this point. Thanks for your input.

Response From Discretesignals

Let us know how things go.

Response From RichardGilpin

ok

Response From RichardGilpin

yes the noise is still there. it will not make the noise when it is sitting still. i have revved up the engine in park and also in nuetral but it does not make the noise. it only makes the noise when i aacelerate, especially if i go to get on the freeway. it does not slip only makes that high pitch noise

Response From Discretesignals

Does it make the noise if you brake torque it?

Response From RichardGilpin

yes it does. it almost sounds like a dry bearing in the turbo.

Response From Discretesignals

Did you use ATF+4 fluid? Fluid level has to be checked with the fluid warmed up and the transmission in neutral with the engine running.

Response From RichardGilpin

yes, i used the atf+4 synthetic that it calls for.
