TRUCK WON'T SHIFT TO FIRST GEAR.

2002 Dodge Ram

Transmission problem
2002 Dodge Ram V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 61000 miles

I have a 2002 dodge ram 1500 with about 61000 miles on it. The truck will not automatically shift to first gear, I have to put it in first and then pull away, and shift into drive.

A couple of times the truck would grab first but as soon as I started to take off it would immediately shift into second.

I have had this problem before, probably 2 and a half years ago where I simply changed the Trans Fluid and everything was fine, I don't do any heavy driving pretty much to and from work twice a day, and that's a 10 minute drive on back roads.
