Hi out there, I'm a newbie but here goes with the question. Ihave an 02 v-10 with the 47 RE transmission. It wont upshift from 2nd. The hard part of this is I have lost Cruise also. when in drive it starts out normal but starts flaoting about 2500rpm if you step on accelerator it picks second back up. to top off this thing if i go downhill and get up to 3000-3500 rpm and let off accelerator it shifts to 3&4 like normal, that is until i stop and it downshifts again. I took it to trans shop and he pulled the filter said it was clean and wanted $ 2800 for a rebuild. anyone had this problem or can suggest what to do?

Find a reputable tranny guy in your area and have it rebuilt........Valve Body could be your issue but there has also been a couple issues with electrical noise causing your model truck to have shifting issues. If you find out that the tranny is toast get a performance tranny for what you will be charged to rebuild and never worry about it again.
** First do a search on Dodge Tranny Issues from electrical noise. This was a common issue with the 2nd Gen 47re Tranny's....

Sounds like a valve body problem . Will it upshift if you accelerate on it harder . Sounds like it will . Not sure if it has kickdown linkage or cable . Might be stuck or damaged .

i have 1998 with 5.9L and it is doing the exact same thing. word for word what you said. idk what type of transmission i have.....but it is the stock one that came with the 98 models (1500 btw) 4X4. i took it to aamco for the free diagnostic....they check for outside noise when shifting which is what i wanted cause when it finally does shift, it makes a really loud well.. shift noise lol ....ne ways they said that nothing was wrong with it. I asked someone else and they said that it might have been something about actuators on the transmission...is that the same thing as the valves that you were talking about above?
