Question about 2007 Dodge Charger SRT8 Sedan

I have a 2007 Charger SRT8. I love the car but I

I have a 2007 Charger SRT8. I love the car but I have one complaint. When taking off from a stop sign at a normal pace the transmission shifts all the way into 5th gear by the time you get to 40 mph. If you press the gas all the way down it will shift down and take off. However, it really seams like it is shifting too fast. Is this a fuel economy feature or does the computer need work? Thanks for your help.

This is actually a normal shift pattern when this vehicle is in OD mode. It set to allow best fuel economy. the Pcm is fine. this is just a factory setting that is used to help with fuel consumption. You can tune this out by purchasing a chip for the Cpu.(high performance chip)

I have a 2007 Dodge Charger won't go over 35-40 mph and once you get up to that speed it jumps back and forth and when you start it and put it in gear to go it jumps real hard.

The car will start just not go into any gears

if it is an automatic vehicle you have, then you might want to check the cable from the shifter to the transmission. sometimes they can break, and sometimes catch on something that prevents you from shifting. Now if it is a manual vehicle, then you will need to look for another transmission.

2007 charger. i can not get it out of drive

you might have a trans cable issue. the shifter in your car is linked to the transmission by cable. if you can jack your car up and look from under without dismantling the shifter area to see if it has been latched to something, i'd do that first. If you can't see anything, get a haynes repair manual for your car at any part store to guide you along the way.
