Unfortunately any problem it could be will have the same fix. You will end up needing the trans replaced or rebuilt.

Have a look at throttle valve cable, which will run to transmission, close to shifter cable. It runs from throttle linkage area on throttle body, to the transmission. The cable and/or linkage may be partially seizing at transmission end, and hanging up too long resulting in symptoms you are experiencing. With engine off, have someone press throttle to floor slowly, and watch what that linkage does, then have them release pedal, and watch as well. When pedal is pushed it should pull that linkage around, and when pedal is released, that linkage should return fully in the opposite direction. If that linkage doesn't return all the way freely, then transmission will hold up in lower gear longer. Give that linkage area, a good spray with penetrating spray, such as WD-40 or similar, and make sure it is returning all the way freely. Once it's freed up real good, spray it with white lithium grease or similar to keep it from doing same in near future. You can probably work that linkage by hand as well, to make sure it gets loosened up real good, and is returning fully. Give that a try and let me know how it goes.

im not 100% but i think that truck has a hydraulic clutch. if it does for sure then check the fluid level if its a cable or linkage type then it may be out of adjustment. Ether way (low on fluid or out of adjustment) the clutch may not be fully disengaged while your trying to shift. Start there before getting to far into it.

have the trans checked out, sounds like it might be in 2 gears when your shifting into 2nd, causing it to bind up, is there any noise when this problem occurs? a bad bearing or worn syncro rings could be the cause

99 dodge dakota wont shift from first gear but also fuel light is on i bought from auction and put 5 gal of gas and needle moved a lil would this make the truck not shift?


No the fact that your vehicle is low on gas should have nothing to do with the shifting of the transmission. You are dealing with two separate issues.

5 speed manual trans wont go into 2nd


the syncronizers are out on your trans for third gear and as far as the lifters try running some high octane gas with some oil and gas treatment before going into the motor to eliminate that first.

97 Dakota Wont move in reverse


it doesent have to be slipping to go bad.youve lost reverse and it could be the solenoid on the side of the trasnmission but i dont think so since it would affect all the gears
