Question about 1983 Dodge Pickup
Manual transmission........ Set the emergency brake, or block the wheels. Now, using a large screw driver and a flashlight, look down into the shifter cover. You will need to line up the shifter so that it looks like a left-to-right long rectangle (each gear has a slider that moves front-to-rear). Once you have done that, you cannot fail getting the shifter into the correct place.

Sorry this is not an easy fix the clutch packs in the transmission are slipping, usually caused by wear, but the hydraulic pump is probably getting week. As the oil warms up the oil gets thinner and the hydraulic pressure decreases. Times for a overhaul of the transmission, and if the torque converter can not be flushed a new torque converter is recommended. You may get lucky buy changing the fluid several times, but if the transmission is 22 years old it may not help.

On the drivers side bottom of the tranny, there should be embossed numbers on the tranny housing. I have a 1983 dodge ram also. It has a 318 with 727 trans.
