How long since trans fluid and filter change? Also some model dodge trucks have siliniods in the trans for each gear. Sounds like you have one acting up.

Sounds like one of the electric silinoids is going bad.


ok how much would that be to fix and is it a pain in the ass


They not that bad. Just drop your pan and they are right there. But before you do that check the electrical connections on the outside of trans. Might just have a loose connection causing it not to operate properly. Also do some research on which one will be for the gear that's not shifting. That way when you get into it you have everything that you need to repair it. Parts and knowledge.
