This says it all. My buddies Dakota's auto sometimes gets stuck in 3rd gear.

its a 2000 Dakota 2wd Long Bed Extended cab.

it is also a pile, but thats a different story.

So how do we get it back into first besides manu-maticing it?

i should add it only gets stuck down shifting, if we manu matic it up through the gears and to D it does fine up shifting but when it goes down it gets stuck in 3rd.

also it was in a mudding accident where I had to tug it out, and he was trying to get it out for about 15 minutes before me and the rodeo saved the day.

the truck has like 146k, A/T maint history unknown.

sounds more electrical than mechanical.
Do a complete check up on the valve body.

You said Up shifting is fine.... but do a quick slow speed test and check if the truck is engaging 2nd or 3rd and doesn't skip gear when shifting...
