Testimonial: "This was right on. Replaced the sensor and the shifting problem went away. My cruize control which has not worked right for yrs now also works right! "
Dodges are known for the Wave Snap Ring breaking in the OD unit, which is 4th, and would make the shifting problems you have, one way to find out is drop your trans pan and see if you have parts of this Wave Snap Ring in your pan.
The other thing could be, is you Governor or the sensor, unless you have a scan tool, you would be just tossing parts in.
