Have an 02 dodge ram 1500 4 door 5.9 360 v-8 70k miles.... For some reason when I get on it the truck does not shift when it hits redline it just bounces off the rev limiter until I let go of the gas.... I've never had a vehicle do this before and it's making me mad...... Also from a stop if I hit the gas the truck hesitates a little bit before taking off. Any help appreciated :) thanks guys

The only code is that it needs a new cat but the check engine light will go on and off sometimes....

Got my truck scanned today and it came back with codes all pointing to the oxygen sensor, so I got a new one idk if that will help any of my problems or not

I had the EXACT same thing happen with my last dodge. Only had 34,000 miles on it.
I was going to take it to the dealer before the warranty ran out, but I decided to do the tranny screen and fluid change first. It is recommended by dodge to do this as routine maintenance every 24,000 i think it was, so they would have charged me for it anyway. That was the problem. Shifted fine after that.
Change the tranny filter and fluid and I bet you will fix your problem....

I am not a trans tech but I had this problem in my wifes sebring and it was TPS. ( throttle position sensor). Might want to see if that is a possibility in this case?
