Sounds like you probably have a sticky OD push rod... It is the mechanism that engages the overdrive. Have you tried to change the fluid? That could do wonders. It could fix it.

I'm having the same problem with my 01 Durango R/T,I replaced my lockup and OD solenoid because it didn't work at all and now it only kicks in about 20 minutes into a drive,I've also changed my throttle positioning sensor,the sensor on the back of the throttle body I can't remember what it's called looks like a coke or something and speed sensor and nothing is fixing it,could it be the ECM?
