Transmission 2003 Dakota

Dakota 2003 40,000 mi. Just purchased. At slow speed going into 2nd gear slight hesitation bangs into gear. Other gears are smooth. Is this normal?

I'd say no, not normal. I also have the '03 with that transmission and at 160,000 it still shifts smoothly into 2nd and all gears.
Thanks for the input. I just got your message now. I'm going to a transmission specialist and see what they think? It's only going to cost me $75 for them to look it over I believe it should be well worth it
What did they say??
They did a diagnostic test and it shifted beautifully he said? I didn't agree 100% when they serviced the transmission a small piece snap ring was in the pan. They want to rebuild the transmission I looked into other options and found a shop that will put a snap ring in and it's only a $500 job versus an overhaul at $4,100
