Transmission problem
2001 Dodge Ram 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 112000 miles

My truck starts in third gear. If you manually change the gears on the column it changes fine. I have taken it to several mechanics with no luck. No codes show at all.

Do you
have the same problem?

Yes it will go into over drive just will not shift down. Have not checked pressure because trans changes fine with no slips manually. Scanned solenoids and no codes running it is running desired pressure on governor solenoid. Output speed sensor is working. Also, noticed the air conditioner runs in all positions don't know if this has anything to do with transmission.
