I hope someone can help me with this as im not too much of a mechanic. I
have a 1994 Dodge Dakota 318 v8 magnum automatic transmission. Last
Saturday as I was coming back home, it did a shuddering sound and died as i
was coming up on a stop sign. I put the truck in park, restarted it, which
it did perfectly. Tried to put it in drive again and it bogged down and
died. I was finally able to limp it to the apartment complex about 30
minutes after working with it by putting it in 1st gear. It idles perfectly
in Park & Neutral, but once put in gear died. My uncle tried to come help
me(as he was prior owner) we changed serpentine belt as it was making a
slight whining/squeaking noise. Started truck up drove it around the block,
transmission shifted perfect. He thought maybe the cat was clogged so we
blew that out. Once i reduce speed it made a slight whining noise still. We
drove it back to apartment, shut off truck. restarted, drove it around
block one more time. Then it started trying to die on me.(Shuddering,
bogging down etc.) Now everytime we put it in Drive, Reverse, First, and
2nd it cuts off. Still idles perfectly in park and neutral. I can rev it up
to about 2500 to 3000 RPM no issue. Not sure if that helps. Had a friend
come over with a diagnostic tool but his only work on 96 and newer. He did
a little googling and thinks its possibly the Transmission Solenoid Sensor.
My question is do ya'll really think so? None of us here are too
mechanically inclined. We just need help lol Ive been stressing bout this
and cant find a site that kinda matches my truck's symptoms right on. Sorry
for the long post and thank you to anyone in advance who might could help

weird sounds with the tranny. Drove it then parked it at night. the very
next morning I warmed it up before going to work, started fine then I went
to shift it in to reverse and it wouldn't go tried other gears and nothing.
It was acting like it was stuck in neutral. Can you help me. I was thinking
it may be the gear shift cable, or the governor solenoid.

Author BH1Videos (6 months)
I bought this kit from Cascade and used this video as a reference.. Great
Video, Very Helpful. The only thing missing, which became a major headache
for me, was how to get the Park Rod to release from the Transmission, when
the Trans. is still in the Vehicle.

After many attempts to "ease the park rod out", with Zero Success, I
discovered the following steps were required to release the park rod so it
could be "Eased out"...
1. Make sure the Vehicle is chocked to keep it from rolling.
2. Put the Transmission in Neutral.
3. When you are ready to remove the Valve Body, Jack Up One of the Rear
Wheels, so the tire can be turned/rolled.
4. Slowly turn the tire, while you are attempting to "Ease" the Valve
Body(VB) toward the front of the Transmission, as demonstrated in the
video. (Having a Friend turn the tire will make this much easier.)

It is my understanding that the park rod will be prevented from removal
and/or install by the Transmissions internal Park Mechanism. Turning the
tire apparently rotates a internal component and will release the rod, so
it can be easily removed...
(Unfortunately, I did not know this procedure when I removed my VB and it
was nearly impossible to remove, until it suddenly popped out of park and
the truck moved... It went back in like butter, using this technique.) I
hope this helps...

to know how to get into it and check it, and add a little if needed. I
have seen some kind of temp chart that it may need to follow. And does it
have a dip stick, if not, how do i check to see what one I need to order,
