04 transmission problem

Hello. So i have a 2004 Dodge ram 2500 cummins Automatic Transmission. Everything is stock. It has 199,740 miles on it. Mainly all of the miles are highway miles. So what i got is when i take off i have power in first gear. When it goes into 2nd gear it revs way up above 2500 rpm's and feels like it lacks power a bit. But then it goes into 3rd gear and 4th gear smoothly and all my power comes back. I have lots of power in 1st, 3rd,and 4th just not much in 2nd. I have replaced the governor solenoid and transducer within the last 2 weeks. ANY IDEAS??????

Sounds like the clutch pack for 2nd gear could be wiped out.

You can just replace a clutch pack but I wouldn't recommend that at. You have to pull the trans to do it and a basic rebuild kit is not that bad. The trans has to come apart to fix it, so you should rebuild it while you have it apart. If one clutch pack is burnt up the others aren't far away especially if you have almost 200k on your truck.

Second gear is not a clutch pack, it is a band. You have all the systems of a loose or burned up front band. Adjust it first to see if it will change the operation. If the band is total shot but the drum is good a slip in band is available.

$70 for fluid, $30 for the band, couple hours labor if you have to pay for it.
