Default 2001 dakota transmission problems.


I drive a 2001 dakota, V6, with automatic transmission. Recently
started having a problem with slow acceleration. Eventually the check
engine light came on.
I took it to a mechanic. He said that dodges have a safety feature in
the transmissions, so that it does not use the first gear if there is a
problem with the transmission. Supposedly to provide you enough time to
get the vehicle in and get serviced. does this sound right or am I
being taken for a ride?

I forgot to add, I believe he said the check engine codes were 0155 and
0157.

other than owning a 2001 dakota, I know little about the transmission, but that
sounds pretty weird..

I have the 4.7L v-8 in mine and can't imagine starting out in 2nd with a v-6...
maybe he's confusing it with mot going into overdrive unless it's at temperature
and you're doing over 30??

I'd definitely get a 2nd opinion..

It happens either with the engine at temp or cold. I do not have a
problem with the higher gears. Once it gets up to spead acceleration
greatly improves and it does not have a problem shifting. There is only
a problem starting from a stop or a low speed (less then 20).

I am taking to a different place for a second opinion tomorrow.

yes, he's describing limp in mode. other than that i know little about auto
trans it was not my specialty and i am not the most well versed person here.
as far as the codes posted. i found this on obd-codes.com

P0155 02 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 2 Sensor 1)
P0157 02 Sensor Circuit Low Voltage (Bank 2 Sensor 2)

i see no reason why these codes would cause a trans shift problem. but it
wouldnt hurt to look at why you have these codes.

put the trans into the fail safe mode You need to get the engine codes
