Default 2001 Ram automatic transmission problems

I just bought my second Dodge Ram, which is a 2001 sport. I drove it all the way home from Ohio (340 miles) with no problems. The next day I go to drive it, and it doesn't want to shift from second to third gear. I have to get the RPMs up to about 4000 and then let off before it will shift. But when it shifts it shifts nice and smooth. And then sometime it shifts just fine. My dads neighbor owns a transmission shop so he is going to look at it for me. But until he gets time to does anyone have any ideas for whats wrong? I checked the tranny fluid and it was just fine.

Thanks in advance

Dan

Welcome aboard I see you're new. I honestly haven't the proper knowledge to help you but if you stick around someone will usually chime in. Meanwhile stop by the "newbie" section and drop a "hello". Thanks!

Welcome to the forum. Do you have any codes stored in the computer? Upper gears are computer controlled.

I had the same problem with my 2000 sport. Turned out to be a selinoid in the tranny. Cost about $400 at AAMCO to fix. Been great ever since.

Same thing mine turned out to be. Cost me $275. Hopefully I won't have any more issues.
