Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 Truck
Since the transmissions shifting is controlled by a TCM (transmission control module) the very 1st thing u must do here is have the system tested for codes, u may have a defective shift solenoid, the solenoids that shift the trans open and close different fluid passages in the valve body, this can also be caused by a internal hydraulic fluid passage leak, if u do have a electronically related problem u should have a Check Engine light on, u don't say how many miles on truck but if it is over 100,000 i would suspect the transmission has a internal fluid pressure seal leak that is causing the problem, this would match the symptom u have, as the RPM's go up the pressure increases, this can overcome a leak in the pressure circuit and let the transmission shift, remember a transmission is a hydraulic device, all the computer and the shift solenoids do is control the hydraulic pressure and direct it to the right part of the transmission to shift gears.
