The trucks transmission does not shift until the RPM's are near 4000. Is this an easy fix or do I need a new transmission?

I have a 1998 Dakota, and I was having the same problem. I had the transmission fluid and filter changed and it has been fine ever since. I also had the same problem with a Toyota 4-Runner a few years back and changing the fluid was the simple fix for that vehical as well.

If you have not had it changed then based on the milage you should. Most oil change places can change it for you while you wait.

Take Care!
