I have a 97 dodge Dakota with the 318 2wd.
When i drive it it will shift through all the
gears but when i kick down on it just revs up
real high and when i drive it long distance it
The transmission is probably on the way out but check the fluid level and you can try some Lucas Transmission Fix to maybe get a little more life out of it.
Do you thank it could be the shift solenoid
They're about $100, it's worth trying it
