There is a lock up torque converter in the trans. Sometimes they don't want to come out of lock up. It will fell like you were driving a standard shift and forgot to push in the clutch.

Try a good flush on the trans, and put in a bottle of "Lube Guard" This is a brand made for transmissions. They have three kinds, red, black and green, The black one is for Chrysler and foreign.

The lube guard will go to the valves that controll shifting and lock up with out effecting the seals in the trans like other trans additives. Do not try anything that says "seals transmittions".

Take my word on the lube guard. I have been rebuilding transmissions since the 80's and have found Lube Guard took care of many shifting problems.

Hope this helps

run fault codes and check for TCM problem . Change the fluid and clean the filter. Have a pressure test done on the box to check for internal mechanical problems. While the pan is off have the bands and clutch pack adjustment checked.

When I first start driving the transmission work fine ,then when I slow down it shifts into 2nd. and won't shift up again. So i stop the car , start it again and then it shifts fine again until I slow down...


I was told by a Chrysler tech that it's the shift solenoid located in the trans. pan. There are 4 of them and you have to have it checked to see which one. You don't want to replace all 4. About $80.00 at a dealer! Mine does the same thing. 2004 Concorde lxi.

Have your transmission oil filter changed;
it is located under the transmission pan
The oil is what makes the transmission shift
When you shut off the engine it stops the transmission pump then when you start up again the transmission shifts until the filter clogs again

2004 pt crusier shifting down hard is it transmission


Sounds like you have more than one problem there. best bet might be to stop in at autozone, or Pep Boys for a free trouble code scan, just to see if anything comes up, then get back with results. As far as the AC goes, can you see or hear your AC compressor kicking in when on AC mode?

Hard down shift


I've read article after article on Chrysler forums where anything other than Autopar ATF in their transmissions cause problems, erratic shifting, etc, including what your experiencing. The techs that deal with it daily through Chrysler/Dodge shops, say there is some properties or chemicals in Autopar fluid, that others just don't have, no matter what they say, and they have proven it, time after time, with symptoms that disappear, just by changing fluids to Autopar. My wife's relatives own one of the more respected & trusted repair shops in our area, and they swear by that rule too, because they've also experienced it in the past. I'm naturally assuming you know that your experienced enough to know how to install filter properly & what to watch for, so with that said, I hate to say it, but Mopar ATF4 is the one & only fluid for best results. P.S. I recently had my transmission with 260,000km. replaced at Ontario Reman, whom back when I was with Chrysler, was the sole supplier of rebuilt engines & transmissions for Chrysler. When I questioned them on the fluid in my new/rebuild they responded with same answer, Mopar ATF and nothing else. If you do some googling on it, you'll find many that went to quick lube or similar for same service only to experience shifting problems etc after. Switched back to autopar as advised & problems went away. Can't say 100% that's your problem, but if it were me, I'd change it.

2006 chrysler 300 transmission slips


Low on transmission fluid. The tranny fluid can only be checked by Chrysler, there is no dip stick, because you have to know the motor temp to be able to know where the fluid should register on the dip stick. Crazy!
Its not slipping now, but shifts hard. Has to be looked at by Chrysler again, but its done this since Ive had it, so I didnt realize it was a problem....
