I have heard of this happening before. I have been told it could be a temperature switch in the transmission. It could also be a solenoid inside the transmission for the torque converter called the Lockup Solenoid. I would call a local trans shop and ask them what they think. They work with these on a daily basis and they should be able to give you some advice on a way to go.
I know for a fact the clock spring mentioned above is not true. And the battery connections I severely doubt will fix your problem. Thanks.

This could be one of two things, first try cleaning all of your battery connections.If this works problem solved. If it still jumps in and out of overdrive you need to have the clock spring replaced which is located behind the steering wheel. part is about $145.

Late shift from 1st to 2nd changes into 2nd at 25 mph (1999 dodge ram 1500)


Think about it--- because all you can do- is remove &
clean the valve body

After that- it comes out for a rebuild

Back probe the TPS Sensor & see what that looks like

I have 94 dodge 1500 had the transmission rebuilt about 6 months ago .on the interstate about 10 min into the drive at 65 to70 mph it starts surging. It done that before the rebuild and after. Checked it...


If that transmission has torque converter lock-up, it may be disengaging and engaging the lock-up causing the rpms to raise and drop about 500 rpms. (causing a surging fealing). If you experience this again notice the rpms and see if it's doing that. If that's the case I'd say your transmission is getting too hot and the torque converter lock-up solenoid is kicking on and off or acting eratic. If it were me in this situation I'd invest in a $30 transmission cooler and install it using the directions that come with it and see if that helps it.

I HAVE 1999 DODGE TRUCK. TRANSMISSION IS AUTOMATIC IT WANT TO SHIFT UP AND DOWN AT SPEEDS OF 45 TO 55 MPH WITH OVERDRIVE IN AND SPEEDS OF 30 TO 35 MPH WITH OVERDRIVE OUT


Sounds like dirt in the transmission may be causing the shift points to not work properly.
Is this the problem you are having?
If it is, then I would say that one should have the fluid changed out of the transmission at a local shop.

If this does not solve the problem, then the solution may be a rebuild of the transmission.

99 dodge ram that jerks between 40 and 50 mph


Bring it back to the transmission shop and have them test drive it with the scanner to see if the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) needs to be replaced. A worn TPS will case the transmission to have shifting problems, the TPE sends voltage signals to the PCM and will control the transmission shift points and firmness. If the TPS has a flat spot and the voltage is down at the point where the transmission needs to shift, there may be a conflict of shift program and needs to be addressed. Good luck and keep me posted.
