Remember me, back in May, heres a recap:
My 2003 Dodge Dakota does not shift properly sometimes going into second gear and it only happens in second gear. I have to lift my foot off the accelerator for it to shift into third. If I don’t it just screams at a high RPM and sounds as if it is about to blow. It has a hard time making it up a small incline such as an off ramp. Truck will not shift properly when going up grade. Engine will rev at 4500-5000 rpm but will not shift until I slightly release the gas pedal. Truck will also perform multiple hard up shifts whether in cruise control or not in cruise control, going upgrade. Took the truck to the dealer reprogrammed the computer with a “flash update” that was no help. NOT ONCE HAS THE ENGINE LIGHT HAS EVER COME ON.
So a lot of the comments that were presented to me I have done. Here is a list:
- Changed govner senors and solenoid. Did not work.
- Checked for exhaust leaks and other leaks. No leaks.
- Checked all vaccuums. No problems there.
- Had engine checked and dyno tested. No problems there.
- Had transmission rebuilt. Same problem. (dealer did work)
- Had new transmission put in. Same problem. (dealer did work)
Also, sometimes when I put the truck in reverse, it seems to about to stall, but it doesn’t. It also does it sometimes when I put the truck in drive it seems that it wants to stall.
I just recently learned that my truck has a Transmission computer module, Transfer case computer module and of course the main computer. Is there a way to test those modules out? ANY SUGGESTIONS WILL BE GREAT!!! HELP!!!
