Have the transmission checked out,


One of the most common complaints with automatics is fluid leaks. Fluid can leak out of the driveshaft seals, the input shaft seal, the transmission pan gasket, the torque converter or the ATF cooler and line connections. If the fluid level gets low, the transmission may be slow to engage when it is shifted into drive. Gear shifts may be sloppy or delayed, or the transmission may slip between shifts

I have a 2000 chrysler 300m im having problem with fuel economy the rpm is to high i dont know if this are like that but when im hittin 55m the rpm is almost hittin 2000 rmp is there somthing that needs to...

That amounts to about 27 mph per 1000 rpm which I think is quite high gearing.

For reasons of fuel economy vehicle manufacturers tend to choose a ratio for top gear that allows the engine to run at the speed of peak efficiency when the car is cruising at the speed it will be doing for much of its life.
Here in the UK we have a national maximum speed limit of 70 mph and most cars I have driven have an engine rpm of between 2500 and 3000 at that speed, which is the rpm lots of engines produce the peak torque output or are most efficient which amounts to the same thing.

Lots of small cars when I started driving were geared for less than 15 mph per 1000 rpm.

Vehicle handbooks often give mph per 1000 rpm or the dealer should be able to tell you. I suppose it is possible your car is suffering excess converter slip if it is an auto and that is the data that will indicate it as a likelihood.
Vehicle manufacturers tend to offer a wide variety of options and equipment alternatives and one of these is usually various final drive ratios. A manual gearbox usually has a lower ratio than an auto and a car meant for hauling large or heavy loads or a car intended for export to mountainous countries or regions will have the lowest ratio fitted. Rarely a car will be released with the wrong equipment for the region, but it has happened.
Different wheel/tyre combinations also can require different ratios and of course the vehicle speedometer is generally calibrated for a single ratio and wheel/tyre combination and would be inaccurate if the specification was altered.

Lots of things to think about and lots of research to do, I guess, but I suggest you first carry out a controlled fuel consumption test and compare it with the specifications. If the consumption proves to be excessive it would be wise to have the engine sensors checked/replaced first because a high gear ratio isn't always more economical.

If it does it only at highway speeds...over 40 mph or could have a lock up torque converter issue. (This locks up electrically for overdrive) Dissable the overdrive and see if it will go away. (drive it in 3rd, if you have a 4 speed) (Or tap the brake, this will dissable it also)

My 98 dodge ram vibrates bad at 40 mph plus at a steady low rpm. if i step on the gas it kinda stops and if i let go of the gas is stops completely it also started misfiring when it started this

Torque convertor shutter? Maintain the speed that it does this, and with your left foot, apply a small amount of pressure to the brake pedal. Not enough to slow vehicle, but enough to disengage the lock up convertor. If it goes away, try servicing the fluid with new 7176. if that doesnt do it, replace the convertor.
