I have a 2004 Chrysler 300m that will go into Limp home mode

Customer Question
at times. when operating temp...
I have a 2004 Chrysler 300m that will go into Limp home mode at times. when operating temp. and coming to stop it will drop hard into first. I shut car off and turn back on it clears the problem but will happen again. Have taken to 4 shops and they have no problems??? but I pick up car and on way home it does it. ???? The past two shops said I was low on fluid. with in one week I was down tow and half quarts. NO LEAKS???
JA: How old are the hoses? And what driving conditions do you most often encounter?
Customer: when coming off a highway to a stop but than also going 30 mph to a stop. I would say hoses are original.
JA: Are you fixing your 300M yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have taken to 4 shops with no luck in them finding a problem. they fill trans with fluid and no problem. but in a week time one shop put in 1 quart and than next shop put in a quart and half. But no leaks???
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no that is it

A common problem on this is the input turbine speed and output speed sensors on the trans. I have seen this problem before. The sensors are cheap may be a good idea to try replacing both of them at the same time.

Already done that and still have the problem. The last shop said that year had problems with the solenoids. Could that be my problem?

You need a scan too to see if there are any codes stored in the transmission, if it goes into limp mode then there should be codes stored.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
