Question about Cars & Trucks
I pulled five 36 foot park model trailers with no brakes over the summer time. With this 3/4 ton truck. I have changed the back bed to a 8x10 stakebed & put on a older hydrulic lift gate unit hanging off the bed about 2 feet. I also add a plow unit & a heavy duty bumper to the front of truck. know i'am experincing sluggish tranny won't take of fast & slow drag up hills. It was working fine until i pulled the trailers up steep hills. Then i had problems with it. The colder weather is making it worse.

Towing capacity for any vehicle depends on the engine size along with tire size. the towing capacity should be on the ID tag on the driver's side door and will also be in the owner's manual.

It sounds like your speed sensor may have gone bad.
If you can get it to Auto Zone they can scan the truck for you and let you know if it is the speed sensor. Auto Zone scan for free and and may have the parts right there.
The part is not that hard to replace and they can give you the instructions on how to do it your self. The only other thing is to take it to a transmission shop and have them scan it and repaire it.
Just be careful that they try not to sell you the whole transmission and not just the sensor if that's what it is.
Good luck and hope this help. Be careful that you do not burn out the transmission as it will not shift, You may have to change the transmission fluid and filter if there already burn. The speed sensor is on the out side of the transmission on the driver's side. Check the wire harness and clips too.

Mr. dodge ram, with the 46re trans the pcm needs a signal from the tps sensor to monitor throtlle opening, accel and decel, what has happened the tps has a worn out spot in cruise area, hence the down shift, uphill is fine because your past the worn out spot, replace your tps sensor, its mount on left side of throtlle body , 2 screws, 1 connecter, and its out, when done turn key on, eng off, step on gas pedal 6 times slowly, then turn off key, this will help set min tps setting, GOOD LUCK RDJRP
