Default dodge trans shifting funny

01 ram 46re

was rebuilt or swapped out at one time if u look at it and compare it to tehr est of the truck its spotless, shifts hard anytime over 3k rpm? so was it built? always in overdrive, did a burnout and i let off the brake pulled away and let off the gas after i got the truck straight haha. went to get on it and it acted like it was in neutral, reved way up and i think the spedo read 45mph just as the tires got traction and i started to gon one my way. but after i let it rev down i pressed the gas again and it was fine.

so did it shift into over drive when i let off the gas doin teh burnout and when i went to get back on it was it trying to down shift to like 2nd, or did it go right to first and just bounce off rev bc i was moving already and it didnt think i was.

im lost on this matter, and srry its a bitch to explain on the internet. just want to know if its goin out or wat

if the tranny is slipping you'll see the tach go to 3k or so. it could be that you need the bands adjusted on it. have you had it serviced yet? how many miles on it? If it is the 2nd gear band adjust it! I checked the manual and it states the front band can be adjusted w/o removing the pan, but the rear band is inside the pan. Heres what is says.

ADJUSTMENTS
ADJUSTMENT - BANDS
FRONT BAND
The front (kickdown) band adjusting screw (2) is
located on the left side of the transmission case above
the manual valve and throttle valve levers.
1. Raise vehicle.
2. Loosen band adjusting screw locknut. Then back
locknut (1) off 3-5 turns. Be sure adjusting screw
turns freely in case. Apply lubricant to screw
threads if necessary.
3. Tighten band adjusting screw to 8 N·m (72 in. lbs.)
torque with an appropriate Torx™ socket.
CAUTION: If Adapter C-3705 is needed to reach
the adjusting screw, tighten the screw to only 5
N·m (47-50 in. lbs.) torque.
4. Back off front band adjusting screw 1-3/4 turns, for
diesel vehicles, or 1-1/2 turns, for V-10 vehicles.
5. Hold adjuster screw in position and tighten locknut to 41 N·m (30 ft. lbs.) torque.
6. Lower vehicle.
REAR BAND
The transmission oil pan must be removed for access
to the rear band adjusting screw (1).
1. Raise vehicle.
2. Remove transmission oil pan and drain fluid.
3. Loosen band adjusting screw locknut 5-6 turns. Be
sure adjusting screw turns freely in lever.
4. Tighten adjusting screw to 8 N·m (72 in. lbs.)
torque.
5. Back off adjusting screw 3 turns.
6. Hold adjusting screw in place and tighten locknut to
34 N·m (25 ft. lbs.) torque.
7. Position new gasket on oil pan and install pan on
transmission. Tighten pan bolts to 17 N·m (13 ft.
lbs.) torque.
8. Lower vehicle and refill transmission with MoparT ATF +4, Automatic Transmission fluid.

back off Rear band screw 2 turns.
