transmission hesitstes
I just bought an automatic 2000 dodge ram 1500 4x4 5.2 l 318 from this old guy. he used it as a ranch truck and drove it in 4WD all the time. upon driving it I found that when I put it in gear and give it gas it hesitates to start moving. at about 1500 RPM it will start to roll and then after that it will drive okay. it does this in drive and in reverse. I checked trans fluid and its right on the bottom of the "ok" line. any ideas as to what can be causing this hesitation. also, when I start the truck and have it in park, its nice and quiet. but when I put it in drive or reverse, it makes this whining noise from the transmission. any advice on what I can do will be greatly appreciated! btw im new here so thanks!

Just a quick question..... Have you tried to replace the TPS Sensor? I was just speaking to a friend and he advised that he replaced the TPS sensor due to the fluctuating RPM. Had similar issues to yourself.... I don't have the exact answer however one of our talented members will chime in......Good luck......
