Default Transmission problems

My 2005 dodge Dakota is stuck in neutral. No matter what gear I put it in,itís still in neutral. Iíve had no indication of anything slipping. I was driving along and hit a little bump in the road and this happened. My nephew dropped the pan and the fluid wasnít burnt and there was absolutely no debris in the pan. Could it be something as simple as a sensor. It has 200,000 miles on it and I donít want to spend 4,000 dollars on a rebuilt transmission. Any help would be appreciated

What part of the world are you in?

Guy did my A999/A998 (31RH) for about $1500 two years ago, including the new torque converter. I think 4KUSD is a bit much for a straight forward rebuild.

His is a 2005....... In my part of the world (DC metro) sadly, that would be the going rate for a shop rebuild, (turn key job) especially if it was 4wd.

Your truck has a different transmission then any of ours will. Ours are going to be 87-96 . (first gen. dakota)
Try posting in the correct section of the forum. (third gen forum)
You may be able to get an answer there.
