Dodge Ram 3500 skips from 1st to 3rd gear, had rebuild after still the same issue. Any advice?


Governor pressure controls the 1st and 2nd shifts. After that is the 3 and 4 solenoids. you would need to look at the pressure when driving(takes a scanner). pressure is 20 to 30 PSI from 1st to 2nd, depends on acceleration. After that the pressure will jump to 100+ psi. Did you replace the governor solenoid and sensor? They are on the passenger side of the transmission and sit in a block that detaches from the valve body.

Automatic Transmission shifting problems.


i had the same thing...It's the transmission. It's REALLY noticeable shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. I was able to get my transmission fixed for 900 bux. That wasn't even a replacement so i can imagine how much it would cost to get it replaced. The shifting will get worse. By the end of my "experience" it wouldn't shift from 1st to 2nd for about 5 minutes until i drove it around for a bit. THen it would "warm up" to the idea of shifting to 2nd gear.

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan will not shif into 2nd


Most likely the second gear section of the transmission has gone bad. There are 3 or 4 different gear sections or assemblies in an automatic transmission, when they go bad, they go bad.

What shift from 1st to 2nd


I am asumin your saying that the transmission wont shift from 1st to 2nd gears. What this could be is either a low fliuid problem or an internal failure of the transmission. I believe the transmission govenor on those units can cause a bad hifting problem. Looks like your set for a tranny rebuild

Hello, I have a 1993 Caravan with a 5 speed manual transmission. The gear shifter often won't go into 1st, and sometimes not any gear. A tech at a tire store forced it, and broke the cable that runs just...


If one cable is broke it won't shift right noy need to repalce the cable and cable housing then adjust the cable so it shifts. With the cabe broke it is trying to shift into 2 gears at the same time.

What you need to check is the transmission release bearing because if there is a clearance on the release bearing you will encounter this problem and also check the transmission oil.
