i have a 97 dakota 3.9 v6 with a 42RE tranny and i let my friend borrow it and he told me it seemed low on tranny fluid so he said he put in some atf from a corner store turns out it was gm tranny fluid and not atf+4 and now when i put my truck in drive it takes off in 3rd and it only goes to 2nd when i down shif but to get to 3rd i have to put it in nutral then slam it down to 1st and even when o/d is on it wont shift out of 3rd it like stuck in 3rd unless i do it does any one have any suggestions? or easy fixes where i dont have to take it out or replace?
