Default 99 Ram 4X4 1500, Auto.. help w/tranny

Transmission mis-shifting, not slipping. Seems fron some of the reading I have done to be a band adjustment issue. Problem is how do I tell what tranny I have and how do I adjust the bands? I have no problem paying for the band adjustment but everywhere I take it insists, you know ther standard BS: "if it is acting up it will require a rebuild".. Been driving it like this for two years.. If it was going out than it would have by now.. It is finally annoying enough that I want to fix it. I am at best a half ass mechanic, how should I proceed? Thank You

most auto transmissions are the 46re the bigger 2500 and 3500 use the bigger 47re trans and the code for the manual slips me for the moment. it can also be a solenoid issue or possible governor issue since they are electric. I personally am goin through the same issue and its about 300 to fix w/ trans servicing. hope this helps

i am also having slight tranny problems and i would really like to find out how to adjust the bands..... and my truck only has 73,xxx miles on it and its a 99 and it dose drive really good and only slips a little when you get on it so i think it is salvageable and it shift perfect about 98% of the time
