Hey guys, I just bought a 2001 Dodge 1500 5.9 and I'm having transmission trouble. It seems to shift fine from 1st to 2nd but after that it seems to not want to shift at all. It revs up to 3500+ rpm and still doesn't shift, but if I let off the accelerator then it will usually shift. I did some searching around here and thought maybe I needed a new transmission speed sensor so I replaced it but it did not solve the problem. Any advice for the new guy? Thanks

You were completely correct. I took it to a tranny shop and they also said the governor pressure sensor and solenoid are dead. I'm going to fix this myself considering the shop wants to charge me 700 bucks to do it.
Is there anything else I should do while I'm in there? I'm contemplating getting this kit, http://www.cascadetransmissionparts....kit2000up.aspx Would this be a smart idea? Will I need to remove the valve body to install the 3/4 accumulator spring and O/D solenoid/harness
