I recently picked up a low mileage (54k) Dakota in great shape. runs fantastic but it seems the overdrive is an issue. When I turn off the overdrive(light on) there is no difference at all and the truck seems to jump right past 3rd gear into over drive. It does not like to down shift at all unless I floor it or come to a complete stop. I have been manually switching to 2nd when necessary but I don't think that is the solution to my issue. Any one else have this issue and if so how did you take care of it?

Welcome and sorry no one has replied to you till now

i had a similar problem but not entirely the same. i had my transmission fluid changed and it took care of the problem

my transmission wouldn't go into 3rd unless i stepped on it, then overdrive went fine. i still have kind of a downshift issue, when i let off the gas it just seems to go into neutral, not sure if it is supposed to do that or not. i kind of like it though as i get a nice kickback growl from the exhaust when it does it
