Hi, I'm based in the UK and have been the proud owner of this Dodge
from new, imported from Canada. It's the 1500 Laramie, 5.7 hemi V8 Auto
4x4. This week I have noticed a problem when slowing down to a
junction....if you don't actually stop and hence touch the throttle to
move off again at low speed, instead of starting off in 2nd gear it
jolts down to 1st (as though you'd stamped on the throttle). As there
are virtually no Dodge experts here in the UK does anybody have an idea
what might have stopped working? Ttruck has done about 40000 miles,
never towed and rarely hammered / tire smoked! I've checked fluid when
hot and the level is about mid way between hot and cold settings and
looks nice and clean. Please help, I have horrific nightmares returning
from my days of owning an 87 blazer with 700R4 box!

I have a 89 burb with a 700R4 that has not given me two cents of
trouble since new and it has 180K mile plus on it now. Alxe ratio,
speed and load will determine when to downshift at lower speeds. You
might trouble shoot a bit more and see what the speed is at which it
no longer does it to determine the threshold and whether or not there
is a problem.
