    well ist isnt your trans work covered by warranty? if not no inexpensive fix. most trans shops charge 1000-1500 to rebuild but in my opinion it is best to go all the way and make the trans "bullet proof" especially if u have 4x4.dodge is notorios for trans probs.i ahve a 2003 durango 4x4 4.7 with 75,000 mi. it has always performed and no signs of breaking.also i want to purchase a 2000 dodge ram 5.9 4x4 for 8,000 is this a good buy it has 86,000 mi runs strong? check edmunds for recall info,your model truck has 4 or 5 including trans air filter and tires among other things.but i still luv a dodge.hope this help. allpro1993

    Hey Mike, Have you had the bands adjusted since you had that trans installed? My trans mission in my 1999 Dodge had some of the same problems. Unless you know how to adjust these bands you will have to take it to a trans shop or dealer. If you have towed alot of stuff and have not had these adjusted, you might want to start there.

    I had a prob with my '01 1500 that sounds a lot like yours. I replaced the speed sensor and it worked fine! And it was inexpensive!

    change valve body,but before try playing with trany kick down cable if it has one if not its electronicly controlled and you may try epc solenoid and the pressure sensor that can be changed only removing the pan,sorry there is no sure100% fixon it

    There is a pressure solenoid just in front of to fluid filter, it is also called a shift solenoid or sometimes it is called a pressure govenor. It sounds like this switch has gone bad it takes about 30 to 45 minutes to switch out. the switch is $99.00 plus tax at autozone the cheapest I could find anyway and fluid and filter will run a total of around $150 to $160.
    you only need the solenoid itself it is about 1" round and about 1 3/4" long with a single plug. I will cost $450 or more for a shop to do the repairs. I hope this helps, good luck
