    check transmission fluid level for shift problem. Is the hesitation in the engine (engine rpm doesn't increase with pressing the accellorator) or in the transmission (hesitation in movement)?

Possible v.s.s (vehicle speed sensor).this sensor is located at the tail shaft of the transmission.this would also cause shift pattern concerns because p.c.m doesn't know what speed the van is going.there's a plastic gear on sensor that sometimes apple cores (wears out in the center of gear, taking the shape of an eaten apple, this would result in gear not moving.

I think this car has a torque converter lock up. sometimes they freeze up when the the pcm makes 1:1 to the motor and transmission. this could be the shifting problem.

When I engage the cruise control is holds speed but rmp surges periodically around 2-300 rpm.


It could be your transmission trying to find the right gear it will jump around on diffrent road surfaces and going up hills/down hills. It is usaully noticable on cruise because it is at a constant speed and your thinking why would it need to shift. Sometimes it doesnt even really shift the gear its so inbetween it just jumps back really fast.

1999 DODG 3500 AUTO TRANS SHIFTS TO 2ND WITH A LITTLE HELP


I have a 1999 Ram B 1500 Van, auto transmission, 5.9 L engine.
Same problem, trans hesitates in 2-3 upshift, sometimes 1-2
to 2-3 upshift. Posts trouble code P1756 - Transmission Govenor pressure too low at below 15 to 20 Psi. Transmission pump shot or valve body leak stops trans from reaching proper pressure to shift, which is minimum 15 Psi.
Either trans is leaking in valve body, valve is stuck, shift solenoid on valve body is sticking, or pump is shot.
