92 Dodge Dakota won't run in 3rd gear

My 92 dakota has a 3 spd automatic with OD. It will not run in 3rd gear just slips whether in drive or shifting manually. In drive as well as manual runs fine in 1st and 2nd but slips in 3rd.. I obviously don't know much about transmissions. I did check the fluid level was ok but smell a little burnt. I just want to know if this is a major repair (Tranny replace or overhaul)or if possible just a minor repair( Solenoids or Valve body repair?)

how many miles are on the transmission? has it had any service or repair work recently? any leaks coming from the trans to cause a low fluid condition that could cause a slip?
for this year trans, it only has 2 solenoids, 1 for the torque converter clutch (lockup) and the other is for overdrive, the first 3 gears are still hydraulic like the old torqueflites.
the direct drum is for 3rd gear, and theres not much you can do except pull the trans and get it rebuilt. you have already mentioned the fluid is burnt, and with an internal problem, a rebuild would be the best course of action.

127,000 miles. No repairs recently that I know of. Didn't find any leaks. Any idea of the cost to rebuild? Thanks for your reply. I really appreciate it.
