Question about 1997 Dodge Dakota
I would check out your kickdown band inside your transmission. You can check it by removing the pan and pulling down the valve body. Once you get the valve body down you can see the kickdown band it is the band closest to the front. Check the tabs where the band adjuster is. The tabs on the band itself can get bent causing the band to be way out of adjustment which will cause shifting problems like you are having. Sometimes you can just bend the tabs back and reset the adjustment on the band. If its too bad though you will have to pull the transmission and change the band. But before you do all this check to make sure your kickdown lever and cable are working properly. Sometimes if it is binding on your shift leaver your shifter might move hard or your gas pedel can feel super easy to push or hard to push. good luck hope this helps
