SOURCE: hard down shift
I've read article after article on Chrysler forums where anything other than Autopar ATF in their transmissions cause problems, erratic shifting, etc, including what your experiencing. The techs that deal with it daily through Chrysler/Dodge shops, say there is some properties or chemicals in Autopar fluid, that others just don't have, no matter what they say, and they have proven it, time after time, with symptoms that disappear, just by changing fluids to Autopar. My wife's relatives own one of the more respected & trusted repair shops in our area, and they swear by that rule too, because they've also experienced it in the past. I'm naturally assuming you know that your experienced enough to know how to install filter properly & what to watch for, so with that said, I hate to say it, but Mopar ATF4 is the one & only fluid for best results. P.S. I recently had my transmission with 260,000km. replaced at Ontario Reman, whom back when I was with Chrysler, was the sole supplier of rebuilt engines & transmissions for Chrysler. When I questioned them on the fluid in my new/rebuild they responded with same answer, Mopar ATF and nothing else. If you do some googling on it, you'll find many that went to quick lube or similar for same service only to experience shifting problems etc after. Switched back to autopar as advised & problems went away. Can't say 100% that's your problem, but if it were me, I'd change it.

It is more than likely in the idle air control valve on the truck. It more than likely has a lot of carbon build up on it causing it not to work as effectively as it should. Remove the motor and clean the plunger and the seat on the throttle body and see if this helps. If it still does it you will have to replace the valve.

Check your paper work for the warranty that came with the rebuild job they did.If it is still under their warranty then I would have them fix their screw up.Normally a shop will warranty their work for 1 year and 12k miles.The external cooler is usually for vehicles that do a lot of towing.Yes your vehicle cools the transmission thru the radiator tank.there is a cooler built into it.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Bracket on top is for rely. You need to remove the 2 screws on clinode, battery cable ( first thing) and either 2 on engine block trans housing . You should be able to push starter up and move it around exhaust a little without removing anything else. Tight fit

You have vacumn lines the run to your transfer case and then to the vacumn motor on the front axle. you need to check the lines and connections. If vacumn is working fine, then motor on front axle is bad.
