Question about Dodge Cars & Trucks
Internal problem or input / output speed sensor of the automatic transaxle. Will need to have shop scan for fault codes to determine repair. When computer "sees" a problem it puts the trans into a mode which will not let it go out of 2nd gear. Otherwise known as "limp-in mode" so your not completely stranded.

You need to free up your throttle pressure control cable linkage that sits above your shift cable linkage at the top of your transaxle on drivers side. I had the same problem from time to time, caused it to stay in lower gear longer, and shift down hard when slowing down. Happened more when I drove it a little harder as pushing gas pedal further down causes it to rotate, but then sticks & doesn't come back right a way. Free it up with penetrating lube first, then put a good coat of spray grease like white lithium after its moving freely again, and it should be problem free for a while. You may have to move some things to get at it. If you need a picture email (email@example.com), seeing how I can't seem to figure out how to send it from here.

the mechanic should check the shifting gear and the shifting lever or the shift level and also the gear sleeve. Gear sleeve is the one that make the gear function. And lastly don't forget the transmission sensor because sometimes the problem can be found in the sensor .Then try to check the 1st. gear, 2nd gear,3rd gear,N ,R.of the trans mission to be sure .

Im not an expert, but im going by problems I have had (been with chevys though) maybe try and replace the throttle position. It wont hurt to run to a local ford dealer and ask for their opinion on it too. A new one at napa is about $61.
If you try this email me and let me know if it fixes it. firstname.lastname@example.org
