I will try to help..ihave a 2000 dodge durango with the 4.7 v8..My trans started shifting funny and the rpm's would go up to 2000+rpm when i was driving, which means i was getting really crappy gas mileage at 40mph..took it to shop, engine light on,put it on machine to diagnose..got a generic p0700 code plus a couple others..code basically says tranny is fn up..
Try this a cheap fix first that worked for me..on the transmission,driver side there are two sensors..input/output transmission speed sensors..to be exact..they send info to computer to regulate shift points in trans..upshift and downshift..replace them both although one may be the culprit..cost at the dealer here in Delaware was $40.72 for one..there is one bolt(8mm)and one electrical connection to each..time to replace both about 15minutes you don't even have to jack up truck but you will have to get underneath.

Hope this helps and good luck..if you change them and find the tranny shifting properly..cycling the on and off switch will eventually turn off the engine light..just drive it normally i mean..go here shut it off..get back in start it up and go..it will go out..good luck

Lets get the ECU scanned for codes. Have the items repaired that the codes direct you to.
You may have some transmission shift valve codes .

Your transmission is dying. Whats happening is the clutch material has worn off the plates and is clogging up the valve body in the transmission, soon the trans will loose the forward gears and die completely. Sorry for the bad news.

Could be a bad catalytic converter. Have the exhaust back pressure checked. Check the fuel pressure & if possible,drive with the gauge on & see what happens when it dies. If the pressure is good,then it's not fuel. Write back if you have more issues.
