Check for and cracked or broken vacuum hoses. When you have a vacuum leak. It usually causes really hard shifting or no shifting.

1991 dodge Dakota v8 automatic 4 wheel drive with over drive when taking off in drive I can hear the transmission shift twice. But IT won't shift up into high gear


Bad shift solenoid. Easy t replace but messy, You have to drop the transmission pan. There are 2 shift solenoids. The 2 that look the same. I would replace both of them. Pull them out slowly, there are pistons and springs behind them. You don't want to loose them.

1988 Dodge Ram 50 Automatic shifts into park reverse and neutral. But physically won't go into drive gears.


Disconnect shift cable from transmission linkage and try to manually put transmission in drive gear ( make sure wheels chocked/park brake on ). If transmission goes into drive gear, suspect a shift cable or shifter assembly problem. If you can't manually shift into drive gear by hand with cable disconnected, suspect internal transmission/shift linkage issue
