1994 Dodge Ram

I have a 94 Dodge Ram 2500 Pick Up, 2W Drive 5.9 Diesel Cummins Engine Automatic Transmission. The transmission cooler lines are going through a small canister on motor lines leaving going to water pump. What is this canister and what is it's purpose?

Hello and thanks for donating

It's very difficult to name a part without seeing it. Do you have a photo of it that you can upload here for me? How small is it? It could be a tranny oil temp. Sensor / sending unit or a filter of some sort. Hard to say without seeing it.

The first pic is the canister in question and the second is a part that is supposed to plunge up when I turn on the ignition but I have to do it manually. I replaced it with a new one but it still does the same thing. I was wondering what else I could do to try and fix it.

My truck has 613,000 miles and I have had my transmission rebuilt twice and I still have no over-drive and the speedometer doesn't work but it does have power. My front brakes stick continously and I have changed out every possible part. Any suggestions?

I would suspect that this is like an engine oil cooler on a boat, only used to cool the trans oil along with radiator instead of a seperate trans cooler that is normally found on diesel equipped trucks. On GM diesels they have a trans cooler that sits infront of the radiator and on this vehicle they are using the cannister/cooler for the same purpose

Not sure but it could be the turbo unit and intercooler, as for brakes, when the lock up, jack up a wheel, open the bleeder screw or loosen the banjo blot, if the wheel spins free, replace the flex hose, if not replace the calipers, this only applies to a NON contaminated brake system, if any type of oil was poured into the master cylinder, and the rubber has swelled, all rubber parts in the brake system need to be replaced.
