Get code check for any trans codes...sounds like front pump though...internal issue mechanical..need at least partial rebuild to remedy

    the speed sensor helps tell the computer when to shift..there is no separate Trans control unit. Both engine and trans are
    controlled by one module (located on the floor forward of the center
    console almost against the firewall).

Why is my 97 dodge dakota reluctant to shift from first gear until it warms up


When did you last change the trans fluid and filter? Ever? Do so and you may have a cheap fix, plus adding many miles of use to trans. This fluid and filter should be changed every 24K miles or two years for most vehicles. It's surprising how many folks don't do this. You did read your owner's manual didn't you?

Starting in about the mid 1980's automatic transmissions changed from fluid shifting to electronic shifting. In other words, your shift is by an electronic solenoid controlled by the computer. There is no Shift cable gong to the transmission. Just wires. You need to look for a loose or dirty electronic connection to the transmission.
