Asked by Feb 16, 2010 at 02:30 PM about the 2001 Dodge Durango

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2001 Durango R/T has 58000 miles. I just had the trans fluid and filter changed because of having problems. When cold, the trans will shift properly. But after the temp would reach normal operating range the trans won't shift properly. It will downshift into what seems to be 1st while maintaining a slow speed in town. Or when strating off from a traffic light, it will almost tack out before slamming into gear. I have turned the key three times and don't get any codes in the odometer. What is going on?

I was told a shift solenoid might do the trick. A rather cheap part considering the alternative!
