Dodge Dakota

I have a 2001 dodge dakota with 103,000 miles. It also has a 3.8 V-6. My question is about the transmission. When I come to a stop and then go it seem to still be in high gear, which makes start out slow, but once I get going its fine and shift alright. The engine light is also on so I had it checked for a code and was told it was a dealer problem, didnt give a code. I read up on it and it really didnt help me. I dont want to go to a auto service place without some ideal of what it might be and what it may cost. I had very bad luck with auto repair places. PLEASE HELP.
