Message:
My transmission is slipping in 2nd gear going into 3rd. It will remain at a rpm and will loose grip and rev way up, then eventually switch to the next gear. Any ideas an whats wrong? Also, in other gears it sometimes has trouble going into overdrive or downshifting on a coast. Please help guys!

Kyle,
I am havin the same problem but mine is between 1st and 2nd mainly when i'm rounding a corner. I've heard it may be the Tourque Converter but i'm not really sure...I'd say check your fluid levels and the color of the tranny fluid. Sorry i'm not much help but there are a lot of good ppl on here that will be able to help you.

This must be yet another genetic dodge problem. I've got the same problem 2nd to 3rd, only when cold. They should recall all dodges and give us back our money. DOn't get me wrong I love my truck, but damn what a "pain in the *ss"

First post after reading this forum for three years since getting my 2000 3.9 . I have been fighting the exact same problem every winter that Kyle has. Twice a tranny shop has tested it and told me it appears to be bad seals. I have added a cooler and changed fluid and filter(2 years ago) ; tryed seal conditioner(limited success)and cleaned electrical connections(according to Larry my Dakota hero). What works best for me is to cover the grill with cardboard when its below freezing which is all winter here. I don't know why that works but give it a try. Coincidently , just yesterday I changed fluid and filter again and have a noticible improvement. Love my truck other than this ongoing tranny issue. Hope this helps.

Now if you all have had Dodges in the past you would know that the Dodge automatic transmission sucks (as well as the ball joints) so next time get a manual:)

My truck '02 Dodge Dakota (automatic) won't shift out of first (sometimes), high rpms for about a minute, then shifts. Doesn't give me any problem the rest of the day. I just had it driven by transmission pro, he said I might need a new O 2 sensor since my truck seems to malfunction more in cold weather. Any thoughts?

From what I understand, the computer takes into account the singals from the O2 sensor and the temp sensor (among others). When the O2 sensor switches constantly between rich and lean - the average of the 2 is optimal - neither rich nor lean. When the engine is cold, there is no input from the O2 sensor and thus the computer uses a predetermined mixture that is rich (should be anyway). When the temp reaches the normal operating range, there should be input from the O2 sensor. The O2 sensors don't start sending signals until they are warm.

Oh yeah a bad O2 sensor will throw a code - this is of course assuming that the computer is functioning properly too. However a dirty O2 sensor (any crud on the tip would degrade it's performance) might not as the computer sees the signal within spec when it might not be optimal.

So knowing the above, I can see where a bad O2 sensor can seem like a transmission (or fuel delivery) problem.

I have the same 2nd to 3rd gear shift problem when my 96 is cold. I have been to a shop and told it is inner seals and needs rebuilt to fix it. I have been driving it this way for almost 3 years and it doesn't seem to be getting any worse, Sounds like an internal problem, but I wish there was an easy fix...

My 99 v8 automatic Dakota started sort of "sticking" in first gear and had to hit high RPMs until finally shifting into second. Then eventually began slipping worse and worse until now wont even move at all. I've been looking for a good used transmission to swap out, trying to avoid the $1200 rebuild.

I have a 2005 dodge Dakota and the transmission is slipping when I take off and when im going down the road. I have went to autozone and the codes that came back on my truck says the TCM has a fault in the pressure switch and the Tcm is not able to shift the transmission into first and loss of hydraulic pressure and that the ECM received a signal that the transaxle has a fault. what should I do? rebuild it or buy a new one or try to fix it? and how would I be able to fix it/ I have been told that I should change the filter in the transmission before I do anything and see if that helps.

You did not do transmission service, cause if you did you would not have problem.

You will need $1,400.00 for rebuilt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And most rebuilds fall apart within 2yrs.
