1997 1500 tranny issue
I have a 1997 1500 with the 5.2 auto 4wd. Recently the trans started acting up. Was driving it and it would not shift out of gear unless I shifted to neutral and then back into drive. It is also slipping when I start out from a dead stop. More so in reverse than drive.

Anyone have experience with this type of issue? I really miss driving my truck and I sure hope I don't need a rebuild.
