i know this has been gone over several times but it is pissing me off so bad that i cant get my truck fixed.

the truck is a 97 318 4spd auto. i dont know what kind of tranny

when i stop sometimes it will get stuck in 1st of 2nd gear. if it gets up to 4th, sometimes it will get stuck in 4th when i stop. other times everything works fine.

the mechanic just drilled out this checker valve or something and changed the relay.

my dad things i got mud or dirt in it and i need to get it flushed and the filter changed. im gonna go do this tomorrow.

what do yall think??

if you check the TSB,s on http://dodgeram.info/tsb/index.html there is one about the RAMs not shifting and having the PCM reflashed / if you have not had this done please do / when you get to the site go by the year of yer truck instead of looking at all the tranny TSB,s because there is a lot them wade thru

Also have someone scan the computer for error codes and make sure you are using the correct tranny fluid.:)
