300C 5.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 87,403 miles


I have an /'05 Chrysler 300c 5.7 it has 140661 km (auto w/speed stick) One day. while i was coming home, the car seemed to lose the transmission. I got it towed home and started troubleshooting. There are no codes, the engine starts and runs but there is nothing from the transmission in any gear. Actually, even while it/'s in park, it seems to be in neutral. . I did notice that as I moved it through the gears, that the engine surges. Once I saw that, I noticed that when in reverse, the speedometer reads approx 5MPH and when in drive it reads about 10-12 MPH. Any thoughts? I/'m pretty confused .I jack up the back end to check the drive shaft check the wire connection near the computer module on the transmission all was good turn the wheel to see if the crank shaft was OK put the car back on the grand tarted the car all was working this has happen to me twos now ???? also wen this happens moving the shifter from drive to revers there is some sort of noise in the shifter before it engages in park

300C Hemi

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles

I've had this car since 2005 and the transmission started to leak at 59k miles. It was repaired for $128.00. At this time I found that the transmission was a closed system and could not be accessed for checking fluid levels. Recently, I attempted to use the car to go to church. It was 28 degrees, the car started, the gear shifted but would only move grudgently. I tried reverse and drive and it barely would move. Later in the day at approximately 45 degrees I started the car and let it run for approximately thirty minutes before shifting the gear. At this time it worked fine.
