Transmission slamming into gear when braking

Asked by May 26, 2017 at 02:05 PM about the 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr ST 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1999 dodge ram 1500 and when I
have to come to abrupt stops my
transmission doesn't seem to go into
neutral or downshift properly. I jam on the
brakes and I can hear and feel the truck
slam into a lower gear and the brakes are
more effective but I havnt seen a lot of
people with the same problem. I replaced
the speed sensor and no dice. Help!
