However if I put the car in neatral (while still moving)and turn it off and then back on it shifts fine but sometimes when i stop at a light and start going again or slow down for a corner i have the same problem and have to do the same thing again. It also sometimes will start shaking and the same thing.

When the car gets stuck in second gear, this is called limp in mode. that is a safety feature biult in to keep from further transmission dammage. these cars have a common problem with the solenoid packs inside the transmission. if the tranny doesn't slip or act funny at all untill it goes into limp mode i would say that this solenoid pack is your problem. i have had to replace countless numbers of these.to replace is a little bit of a job. you have to drop the pan, take off the shift linkage, remove the valve body bolts, dissconnect the wire harness, and then remove the solenoid pack bolts and swap packs. if you are not familiar with the inside of the tranny it would pay to have a proffesional to do the job. speed sensors could be another cause but i have found the solenoid pack to be more prone to problems on these particular vehicles. first place to start would be a scan to make sure the codes point to the pack. i believe there is a technical service bulletin on this problem.

Two things happen on the Dodge's. 1. the rear O2 sensor shorts out and meses things up. 2. the Inner seal on the Direct drum (3rd) shrinks and causes a delayed up shift.

1996 dodge ram 5.2 auto 318 to shift to 4wd do u put in park or drive and can you shift to and from 4wd on the fly


Need to know what transfer case it has. Most t-cases have synchronized gearing...meaning shift on the fly. A quick test is drive at less than 5 mph, and shift, no gear clash means you have synchros. ****This is only from 2wd to 4 high. 4 low you MUST be stopped(doesn't matter what gear its in).****

Is it ok to start off in 2nd gear and manually shift up to 3rd and then overdrive?


You can put the shifter in 2, 3, or overdrive. It will still start in first and shift up to whatever gear you have selected. Try it, you wont damage anythingl

1996 dodge ram 1500 4WD shifts into reverse fine starts off in 1st and will not shift into 2nd gear


Could be as simple as low transmission fluid, but it can also be your shift solenoids or gonked up valve body. Star with checking your transmission fluid level. On that vehicle its pretty simple. There should be a yellow dipstick. Vehicle needs to be on and on operating temperature. Gear selector in P or N. Pull the dipstick out and see what it reads.

It sounds like when you had the trans service don't he didn't do something right. He might have put the wrong fluid in. Does the trans make noise? Sounds like the trans is going in your truck.
