FIrst thing is check the fluid level and for trans fluid leaks. It can be low. Warn the truck up to operating temperature, in park, engine on, pull the dipstick, wipe and reinsert, and check. Let us know what you find.

I've done all that and change new oil and filter

30

When it does this you can start to feel the transmission engage and then it hesitates and engages real hard

261,155

Did it do it before and or after you changed the fluid and filter?

30

Before and after

30

It all started after I got stuck in the snow

What about the solenoid pack in the transmission pan? Dodge is very common for those

30

I don't understand what you're talking about

850

There's solenoids inside the transmission that go bad, you access them through the transmission oil pan. They can cause all of you symptoms.

30

What like the sensors for the pressure

261,155

Solenoids are part of the valve body. You need to know how to work on automatic transmissions, so best left to the experts. Find a reputable trans shop in your area to diagnose the issue.

I understand what the solenoids are I just wondered if you knew which one i mite start with

850

Are there any transmission codes coming up? That will tell you where to start

30

Code 37 for the transmission

30

It was throwing that code before the transmission ever messed up

30

Could a valve in the transmission valve body be causing this problem

30

Could a valve be stuck in the valve body because this problem

30

I found the problem myself thank you anyway
