97 Dodge ram 1500

I've got a tranny slippage problem and was wondering if rebuilding is the answer. It only slips in first gear and all the rest shift just fine including reverse. Any ideas?

Does it feel like it has no power as you take off? Does it feel like it could be taking off in the wrong gear, 2nd or 3rd perhaps? Check engine light on?

If so, have someone"scan" the computer. Governor pressure problems are rampant with these vehicles.

The computer creates governor pressure to work the shift valves.

The old way was with a governor on the output shaft.

Someone needs to scan this vehicle, enter the data stream and qualify this concern.

Usually the governor pressure sensor or the gov pressure solenoid will be the problem. Drop the pan to acess these, it does not require the valve body to be removed, although a little experience here will be a great benifit.

How difficult is it to get this taken care of, and expensive? And will it hurt it to keep driving it till I can afford to ge it fixed?
