It is going into limp mode. Have the transmission computer scanned for codes. It likely has a input shaft speed sensor.

    Sorry, it likely has a bad input shaft speed sensor.

    I replaced the input shaft speed sensor but did not help. Ended up being the shift module, replaced it and then was getting major vibration when car hit 2300rmp, found out it was cam positioning sensor. car runs great now

How to adjust the shifting cable on my 2000 dodge intrepid

If its an automatic, which im sure it is. You can adjust the cable by first that the vehicle doesn't have to be running to do this. Find the transmission after raising hood. Should be easy to see. On top of it you'll see a possible L - shaped lever bolted down with what should be your shift cable. Turn the ignition on but dont start. Undo the shift cable from the linkage and by hand turn the linkage down, shifting through all the gears till in low. Reach inside the car and put shifting lever in low. Hook shift cable back to linkage and from inside put in park. That should work

When i slow down the trans shifts hard and stays locked in 1st or 2nd gear untill i restart the car it is a 2003 dodge intrepid 2.7

This is called a 2nd gear limp mode -- it is a safety devise in the computor to prevent interior damage to the transmission -- the cause could be a speed sensor or a blown rear low/reverse seal inside the transmission.

2004 Dodge Intrepid

Not sure exactly what the "solution" was but I had the problem above dated May 8th 2009. After a new solenoid kit and repeated trips to my general garage that did not help at all, I finally took the car to a local transmission place and described everything I knew about the problem, including that I was leaning towards an electrical problem now since it was happening in the rain or morning dew a lot and restarting the engine usually fixed it for a little while. He spent two hours on the car testing all wires related to the trans and making sure the wires were connected firmly into the wiring harnesses. He charged me for the two hours, no parts required. After that wire check, I have had no problems to date!

I really wish I didn't spend that $700 on the solenoid kit and labor since that obviously did not fix my problem.
