Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 2008 Chrysler T&C. After a short trip, stopping and then restarting the car it goes into limp home mode (most times). Gear box specialist says no faults show up but the temp sensor is reading -40(we are in Australia). He doesn't know if it is the computer at fault or the sensor. Quoted me $1800 for a new computer with no guarantee and the sensor does not show up as a part through Chrysler. What do I do?
If you can go on line to a parts store check with them as to the location of that temp sensor and availability CHANGE the sensor. If no help, back to on line use a USA dealer. Was problem solved ? Question- - Is the restart when vehicle is still hot when it restarts? If problem was not solved by sensor replacement write me back, Lee.

The symptoms you describe, "limp mode", no check engine light, after a restart you get a temporary cure, and the year of your vehicle, tell me your catalytic converter is becoming clogged.
As your vehicle warms, the exhaust pressure builds and can't properly escape through the catalytic converter. When you turn the vehicle off, the pressure slowly releases, and when restarted it will run ok again until the pressure builds.
I would replace the catalytic converter, and that should resolve your issue.
I hope this information helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

connect a vacuum guage to the intake port and,
look for a cracked or, broken vacuum fitting or, line your engine is occasionally getting too much air this causes it to over rev.

Check the connection to the vehicle speed sensor. You can check the vehicle speed sensor by using a voltmeter set at millivolt. Then pass a metallic object close to it. The sensor should induce voltage as you pass the metallic object close to it. If not replace the vehicle speed sensor.
