#969 of 1029 Dodge Dakota Sport 2000, Not shifting into the hwy gear on Freeway
Jan 02, 2012 (11:18 am)
My problem is, acually I have 2, when starting my truck it wants to start hard but if I turn it over a couple of time shut it off and restart it's fine, idles rough for a minute but smoothes out, my second problem is when getting on the HWY, it seems like it's not going into that last gear, like a 5th gear or hwy gear, seems like it's stuck in 4th, but on city streets it's fine. It's a 4.7 rearwheel drive w/ 150,000 miles, I have changed the TPS, and the Crankshaft position sensor awhile back for other problems, and that worked for those problems but now I have these to deal with, I have had the Battery checked so that's not the problem, and changed plugs, oil, and air filter, during the summer. I feel like it's another sensor but I don't want to take it to a garage and get raped for a 30.00 dollar sensor. If anyone has an idea as to what might be wrong Please help!!!

I have a 2001 dakota and I have problem with it not wanting to come out of park. It feels locked up and shifter wont move. I pulled the truck backwards the other morning and it unlocked then but wont now. I do not know what the problem is.. I was also told it might be a electric switch locking it in park. Any ideas and where is this switch located? Thanks John
Sorry this is a 2 wheel drive truck
