Transmission Problems 2001 Ram 1500

I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 that shifts erratic. Under normal acceleration, When taking off from a stop, it goes from first gear to second gear and acts like it is shifting into third gear, but goes back to second. I give it more gas and then it shifts fine. At a low speed going up hill, it acts like it dosent know what gear to be in. Thinking of replacing the governor pressure sensor and governor solenoid. I have had this checked for error codes and it shows none.

I was wondering if anyone has had this issue and how you resolved it.

you are on the right track. The governor pressure sensor and solenoid are known problem areas on these transmissions.

you can also try the rear speed sensor in the trans tail shaft mine is a 4x4 and it was an easy 20 dollar fix
