At about 100 miles on vehicle noticed a low squeal sound from engine or transmission? at present there are 15000 miles on vehicle and the squeal has gotten a little worst. The noise begins after about one or two minutes of starting, and is continually squealing while vehicle is running. The dealer ship ran test and said it was normal. I drove another 2009 1500 ram and the noise was not there, or in another 1500 ram from another dealership. Dealership refuses to go any further with the problem, quote: we can't figure where the noise is coming from, so it must be normal.
: the contact stated there is a noise coming from the transmission. The dealership determined the noise was normal and the vehicle needed to be broken in. The noise continues to come from the transmission and now the rear end vibrates. Additionally, on five occasions while driving 60mph the vehicle stalled without warning. The vehicle restarted each time after five minutes. The dealer has been unable to duplicate the problem.

Repairs were made to the transmission of this vehicle due to whining noise from cold transmission when in reverse. Symptoms and repairs pertain to technical service bulletins 21-08-99 and 21-11-97 rev. A. Repair shop is doing quite a number of these repairs. Repair cost $500 and 4 days of down time.
Consumer stated that when the vehicle was in overdrive, there was a noise between the cab and back of the truck. The transmission has been overhauled and they replaced the linkage box. The vehicle has been in the shop 17 times for the transmission problem. They have also replaced the bearings in the overdrive 1 or 2 years ago. At that time it was making the same noise and they will not touch it again. The dealership is helping the consumer and he stated it has been in and out of the shop over the last 5 years.

Transmission failed after making knocking noise which got progressively louder over a period of several months. A new transmission was installed and now that transmission is making the same noise after only a few days. I believe that this model of transmission may be defective as it failed after only 58,000 miles and now the new one is making the same noise that the old one started out making.
