I would take this car and get the transmission fluid and filter changed ASAP. Acting sluggish when cold is a sign of a dirty transmission filter.

It sounds like you have a ground issue near the transmission. Make sure the ground strap above the upper radiator hose is booked down good. Also check the plugs on the transmission for a loose connection.

2002 Durango transmission sluggish when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. I was told that the Transmission needs flushed and new Fluid added


Usually if the trans is acting up new fluid isn't going to change a thing, that's usually a ploy to get you to spend some money, just what I have seen.. Q: does the trans act up more or less when hot or cold, if there is a difference with temp then changing the fluid isn't going to help you, but that's my opinion, I been a dodge tech for 17 years but anything is possible with cars......

no i dont think so if this is a newer model with electronic speedo then if the gear change doesnt work it could be the speedo drive as the computer reads the vehicle speed to control the shifting ,take the sensor out and check the nylon gears as this is the most likely cause of your problem

Transmission dosnt shift when truck warms up


FYI
I have a 1995 GMC 1500 with 5.7 truck that the ABS Light comes on and then the tranny starts jumping gears and speedo goes crazy- Changed ignition switch and that did not help.
You said that you had changed the speed sensor on the tranny and that did not help ?? If so that was my next step. Let me know if you find and answer and I will do likewise.

Speedometer stopped workin and transmission wont shift out of first


The tachometer acts as the trigger for auto shifting the gears. Since the speedometer has conked out, it will assume your car speed to be in that range and therefore not shifting up as usual. Replace the speedometer and after doing that check the response on their computerized diagnostics to check the correct response is read by the chip which triggers the gear change.........................sodeep

Sluggish Transmission when cold


You need to change the transmission fluid and filter as soon as possible. Being sluggish when cold is a sign of a very clogged up filter.
