Question about 1999 Dodge Durango
I have a brand new Dodge Durango. Almost right away I noticed that when I started it up after it was sitting for a while (overnight or at the office) that it would not go into 2nd gear right away. After going about 1/10 - 2/10 of a mile it would then shift into the correct gear. I called the dealer and told him about the problem and he said that this was normal. I have a hard time believing this is considered normal operation. Has anybody else had this problem? Has anybody else brought it up to a dealer? I would like to know 1999 durango 4WD 5.2l auto transmission. One shop said trans needs rebuilt. 2nd opinion shop replaced $150 sloenoid and says it needs new computer. I replaced computer. Changed nothing. When it is cold it shifts properly. After it warms up, it starts off in 3rd and will not change. I can shift to 2nd manually and it will start in 2nd and then I can shift into 3rd manually. Code 0753. Can not figure out what it is...
Code 0753 means Transmission 3-4 shift solenoid or transmission relay circuit problem. The PCM (engine computer) is seeing an incorrect input electrically for the gear or speed it should be seeing. You will need to find a qualified transmission shop to diagnose the problem. Possible causes for the trouble code start with worn/dirty fluid, electrical repairs & transmission overhaul.

It was designed to do that. The dealer was right. It does that to rev the engine long enough to heat the catalytic converter to 800 degrees upon the first start of the day. NORMAL.

Try swapping the wiper relay and trans relay.
