99 Dodge Trans. wont downshift back to first gear

hey is there anyone that knows anything this? it will downshift manually but not on its own, it stays in second from a dead stop then will shift up, but not back down to first?

Ive changed the shift sylonodes and that fixed the problem but ive done this twice in one year and this will be the third?

Any ideas? thanks:confused 013:

did you buy solenoids from dealership. They have been less problematic than aftermarket. I don't know a brand but add a additive to make fluid slippery. I'm sure you can find something on the parts store shelves. And use ATF+4.
