trans? 94 dodge ram 1500
i was wondering how i could tell what trans is in my 1994 dodge ram 1500 auto. and i believe the trans is starting to go. it seems to be slipping goin 2nd into 3rd. but im no auto mechanic so i need some help. guy i got the truck from on a trade said that i should try:
- replacing trans filter and fluid or
-he said to smell the trans fluid and if it didnt smell burnt then the trans isnt bad?
-then he siad if the trans wasnt bad then its probably a hardened seal and he said to put a pint of "dot three" brake fluid in the trans and it will soften the seals and might make it stop slipping?
Can anyone back up this option for me to try this so i dont mess stuff up? if not what should i check ?
and if anyone has a good trans there selling for a dodge that will fit my truck im interested in buying it.
