    the transmission is computer controled and uses solenoids to shift gears. it could also be a lose connection between the two. good luck.

    When it comes to internal transmission issues I let the experts deal with this. I do a lot of own work but not on transmissions. I just had the same thing happen on my 03 and it was a shift solenoid. While he was in there I told him to change them both. New filter and fluid included $300

    The first place to start is checking your trouble codes. Any number of things can cause shifting problems but the computer will tell which element is acting up. Check the codes and post them and we'll help you fix your truck.
