Default tranny issues, 50,000 miles, no warranty!

so about 2 weeks ago i was driving, truck ran fine on way to work, when i left it was acting up, once i hit about 70mph the truck downshifted really hard and it was running about 2600rpm in 4th gear, i slow down it wont shift back up.. so i stop and disconnect battery and it worked fine again, i put it in cruise and went along with my day, then i was going over an overpass and the truck shifted down and got stuck again. i used my scanner and its throwing a code for a shift solenoid from 3rd-4th and 4th-5th so i stopped driving it for a week, got in it monday morning and it began it again, so i just rolled around at 2600ish for this week. well last night i was going about 50 and i guess it was in 4th or 5th and it just started shifting in and out of the gears, then it decided it wanted to be in reverse or park or something. the truck started grinding and came to a complete stop. so i was only 2 miles from the house so i put putted on back, got in it this morning and it was doing okay but it was still shifting in and out and getting stuck in 4th. so on my way home this-afternoon i was coming out of the red light and i gave it aliitle throttle and it is stuck in what seams to be 1st now, because i can only go about 50 @ 5800ish and i was 25 miles from home.... what a ride... so what im wondering is what the hell is going on. and why does my 09 with only 50000 miles not have the 100000 mile powertrain warrenty, because i have had nothing but absolute trouble out of this truck and im sick of it, after it gets fixed it is getting a new home. sooo any ideas out there? im guessing the shift solenoid(s) are within the pan somewhere, can i buy them and install them myself or do they have to be synced with the vin? and has anyone else had this problem!!!!!!

Cheer up, you have a lifetime powertrain warranty...they will fix/repair it at no cost to you.

Not true, they still get a 5/100 powertrain.

3/36 is the bumper to bumper, not the powertrain. unless the 09 second owners got royally screwed. Because my 2010 is 5/100 no matter who the owner is

I just looked at my original window sticker

2009 has all the Warranties in the Owners Manual, according to the sticker

this is the 2009 Owners Manual flip book online
https://a.srs20.spx.com/OEM/Chrysler...ook/index.html

you can also call Dodge Customer Service & request them to send you a hard copy
when you call, they will want your VIN # & current mileage
