Default Ram 1500 5.9 liter engine problems

I have a '97 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 5.9 litre gas engine. I had problems with transmission and had a transmission co fix the problem. Now when I am going about 35-40 mph and step on the acclerator the engine revs but there seems to be no power at all. Can anyone enlighten me as to what to do about this problem? I have appx. 196,000 miles on this engine and now it seems to drive like a dog. Alao what else can I do to get more response out of the engine when driving?

If the engine revs but the truck ain't moving or increasing speed, there's still a transmission problem.

Might be a shift sensor problem. Take that bad into the shop if you are in over your head....
