Does it shift right when you start it cold and then stays in 1st. It sounds like a bad governor.

My 98 Dodge Dakota gets stuck between 2nd and 3rd - Only way I can get it to shift to 3rd is shift to neutral and then back to drive. What could be causing this? Automatic vehicle


Your transmission may simply need a good flush. Then again a band inside the transmission may need to be ajusted or you may have a silinoid going out. I hope this helps you out.

I have a 1995 Dodge Dakota 5 speed. The gears are


im not 100% but i think that truck has a hydraulic clutch. if it does for sure then check the fluid level if its a cable or linkage type then it may be out of adjustment. Ether way (low on fluid or out of adjustment) the clutch may not be fully disengaged while your trying to shift. Start there before getting to far into it.

99 dodge dakota wont shift from first gear but also fuel light is on i bought from auction and put 5 gal of gas and needle moved a lil would this make the truck not shift?


No the fact that your vehicle is low on gas should have nothing to do with the shifting of the transmission. You are dealing with two separate issues.

Transmission problem 98 dodge dakota


just try changing your transmission fluid and filter first, and its not a 5.1 its a 5.2 unless you have the 5.9 r/t then it would be a 5.9. i would change fluid and filter first and go from there... and as far as the extra effort it takes to shift from park, try using the parking brake when you park, set the brake before you put it in park and take your foot off the brake pedal, that stops the truck from resting on the transmission park gear and should solve that particular problem.

Shifting problems


The transmission/computer is designed not to go into overdrive until it reaches a certain temp and I don't remember what the temp is. Mine does same thing and it has 250,000 miles on it. When you start your truck up do you start it and warm up in neutral? The transmission fluid won't flow unless it is. There is know way to force it to shift into overdrive until it warms to the set temp.

Hope this helps
