I have a 1994 dodge Ram 3500. It has an automatic transmission. I had the transmission rebuilt about 2 years ago. Now when I start to take off it seems like it starts in 2nd gear. When I manually shift to fist it does fine. Also earlier this year I was driving down the road and it was shifting between overdive and 3rd gear and now it won't shift into overdrive. Any idea's?

Do you
have the same problem?

Sounds like a valve body issue. You need a trans shop to do Pressure checkes to verify. Have changed the fluid on a regular basis?

I changed it when I got the truck and when I had it rebuilt.

2 years is a long time not to change the oil. It needs to be changed like engine but not as often.

Anyway, it may be valve body as I suggested but you need to get it confirmed by someone
