Message:
Occasionally, in the mornings my V6 automatic has trouble shifting out of 1st gear, I stop and put it through all of the gears, but it doesn't help. After it revs out for a bit it will shift and act normal.
Then... when I get to where I'm going and put it into park the engine dies. It's happened when it was cold and warmed up- does not matter. Once or twice it happened when I was backing out of a steep driveway, still in reverse I hit the brakes at the top of the drive and it died.
Any suggestions?

THE STALLING PROBLEM IS MOST LIKELY THE IDLE SENSOR THATS WHAT MINE WAS. THE DAKOTAS DONT SHIFT VERY GOOD WHEN THEY ARE COLD BECAUSE THEY HAVE A PROTECTION DEVICE THAT WONT LET THE TRANY
SHIFT RIGHT UNTILL THE FLUID REACHES OPERATING TEMP. CHECK IN YOUR OWNERS MAUAL. I WONT WORRY ABOUT IT MINE IS THE SAME.
