Default 02 1500 has code P1776

What happens is when I am pulling my utility trailer (roughly 1500 lbs) and come to a semi quick stop the engine light comes on. Once I start to take off it feels like the truck is in 3rd gear. Well it is in at least 2nd gear. It has happened since I got the truck back in June '10 but only has happened when the trailer was being pulled. It doesn't do it everyday, but at least 3-5 days. If I turn the truck on and off 3 times while stopped at a stoplight, it will start in 1st gear. But once I stop again, it will start off in 2nd or 3rd gear again. Recently, within the last week, the truck had the same problem without the trailer hooked up. But, since has not done that again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like it may need a tune-up. I don't think it's actually in 2nd gear. I think it's just struggling to get back up in RPM's.

It happened the day after I bought it. I took it back and it was sent over to the local dodge dealership. They said it was pulling a code for something to do with valve rods in the transmission housing. I don't remember exactly what it was. I will have to pull the paperwork. But I had them replace them and it didn't fix the problem. Cost was about $750. Plugs and wires look good. I just dont know.
