 Description of the problem there is a disturbing trend among automakers to eliminate dipsticks from their transmissions. This can be potentially dangerous. I purchased my 2014 ram 1500 new late last year. Returning on a road trip to new jersey last month the transmission jerked horribly. Once back home i promptly took it to the dealer for service. They reprogrammed the shift points and it worked smoothly for a few weeks. Then it started slipping at 10 mph. I brought it back to the dealership. They checked the fluid level from the fill port on the bottom of the pan and discovered it was a quart low from the factory. This is a terrible design and forces owners into three options ; 1. Ignore their transmission. 2. Have to take it to an expensive mechanic or the dealer. 3. This is where it can get dangerous, get underneath their vehicle with the engine running to get the fluid to the necessary temperature to accurately check it. Hundreds of thousands of shade tree mechanics will endanger their lives to check their fluid levels. Ford has a similarly flawed design on its pick up trucks as well. Had i known about this before i bought the truck i would have gone for the chevrolet with the conventional dip stick set up. The main reason i bought the ram was for its highway cruising range. I covered 750 miles on a single tank ( 32 gallons ). However there is more to the ownership experience than that. Being able to check simple things like fluid levels before, during, and after a cross country road trip and just around town is very important. With all the volumes of motor vehicle regulations on the books i don't know how this design was allowed to go into production. Also, the rotary shift knob on these 8 speed transmissions seems like a fatality waiting to happen. Also, the transmission pan is constructed of plastic with the filter built in to the pan.
