Hi, when I put it into Drive or Reverse it wont move. I can put it into drive and rev it to about 3000rpm and then it will go but wont shift out of whatever gear it is in and will rev really really high like 4500 -8000 rpm. You cant drive it at all. Rev it to 3000 to make it move that's all, not like driving. Transmission fluid is good and red. Smells burnt a little. Also when from Park to Drive I do not hear it changing like I use to. And when you try to drive you get a loud metal on metal rubbing.

I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 HEMI Laramaie

It sounds like an internal clutch pack issue or band issue. Since you hear the metal to metal sound, that concerns me that the clutch plates are worn. If a check engine or OD light has come on, have the computer scanned to determine if there is an issue with a sensor or something electrical. However, it doesn't sound that way. One other thing I just thought of. The noise you hear, if it is a metal knocking sound, check the flywheel to see if it is broken.

It is really a generic code that indicates a problem with the transmission control module. It's not specific. Keep in mind, there could be an internal problem causing the TCM to malfunction.

Will do. Good thing about this shop is that they say that they will show me what is wrong and I can watch when there putting in the transmission. (If that is the problem)

Everything went on it. The valve body, the torque converter, the hub and the transmission. Everything was burnt. He said something about the hose was clogged. I was talking to a millwright at work and he said because it was overfilled it caused the bearings to seize. True?

WAS it overfilled? My thinking is the hose (what hose) was clogged due to the metal to metal rubbing and grinding.

By hose do you mean the metal fluid cooler tubing? A hose is rubber. Tubing is metal. Unless the tubing is part of the vacuum system, then it can be plastic or rubber.

Overfilling the transmission can cause a number of problems, but clogging the cooler tubes isn't one of them.

Extreme leakage mostly. Seals can be damaged or blown. Fluid can be pushed or expanded out of the dipstick tube and catch fire on the exhaust.

There is evidence that overfilling the transmission can cause valves and solenoids to function incorrectly, since these operate on the principle of pressure on one side and no pressure on the other.

So by overfilling the valves would not operate and cause all the burning and mess?
