There is a solenoid in the transmission that controlls that. You may just need a transmission fluid and filter change. But the filter sometimes gets sticky if the pressure gets low in the transmission. Check to make sure all your connectors are clean and tight, it is an electronic transmission. Another thing that can wreak havoc with that is the brake switch. If it's worn out the lockout will act irratic and not function normally as will the cruis control. Start with the fluid and filter and then go to the brake light switch. If those don't work. Try a power flush on the the tranny. It may just need the solenoid, but if one is going, change them all. Good luck.

Is it normal for the revs to stay up when changing gear in a 2002 4x4 3.0L turbo diesel navara?


do they revs drop off when taking pressure off accelerator pedal when out of gear? if only staying high during gear change it would suggest a worn clutch friction/pressure plate so the engine isn't slowing down when clutch is depressed .I'd also have the OBD codes read to see if there is a sensor/switch at fault , but sounds like the clutch to me

98 Dodge Durango goes into gear but wont move?


How much transmission fluid did you put back in. If you didn't put enough it might not get the pressure it needs to change gears. If you put too much then it creates bubbles and foams and it will cause big problems as well. The 42/44RE transmission takes 12 pints (6 quarts) if the transmission was completely overhauled, torque converter was replaced or drained, and cooler was flushed. The 46RE takes the same amount. When adding transmission fluid you only bring it to the minimum level. After that you drive around and let it get warmed up for a while then when you check it, it should be at the max level.

Wont shift out of 1st gear 2001 dodge durango 5.9


Could be a bad speed sensor which screws into the trans. You have the 46RE trans which should be serviced every 30-40k mills and also have its bands adjusted.

What cases the transmission to stay in one gear when it is cold


2 things. low fluid level and sometimes factory programming.
fluid expands as it heats raising the level and increasing line pressure.
sometimes factory program things like overdrive lockout until trans temp reaches a certain level. defin check your fluid level though that should be done once a month at least

I have a 94 cherokee limited 5.2 v8. which transmissions are come


The 46rh is a hydraulic transmission as where the 46re is an electric transmission. With minor wiring you can replace the 46re with the 46rh but not the other way around. Your transmission would stay in limp mode and wouldn't shift out of 2nd gear. So the answer is no.
