Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had the trans rebuild, & it started not shifting into low gear at stops. It doesn't do it every time. I to it back. They replace the shift mod. & torque convertor. Took it apart & checked everything inside. It is still doing it. The mechi. said it may be the computer is going bad. The truck does have 195,000 miles. Can it be the main computer?

It could possibly be a tps or iac sensor. Dodge has a lot of issues with these going. Pretty easy fix. I'm about to pick up a dodge ram today that has the same issue. I doubt the computer is faulty you would have more issues then that.
