Default HELP Transmission

Bought my 97' 1500 Sport 360ci from a buddy of mine had 185,000 miles mostly highway.... i bought it in march which was still cold in indiana and i noticed that when i started my truck even after letting it warm up for maybe 5 minutes i would start down the road and it would be pushin 4500 rpms and not shifting out of first i would have to pull over and stop and let it idle in park or neutral to get it to shift fine i asked the guy who i bought it off and he said he had it rebuilt and when it was rebuilt some sort of re-back (not correct name) valve was taken out which doesn't alow the tranny fluid to circulate or stay in the tranny when the truck is off i know dodges are notorious for the transmissions but i love this truck and need to keep it on the road any help or suggestions please let me know! thanks
