Question about 2000 Chrysler Cirrus
Hi! You may have a faulty torque converter thats why its skipping gears. Have the torque converter replaced and refill a new transmission fluid. A smooth ride and shifting will be noticeable after the procedure. HOpe this helps and have a good one!

The transmission needs serviced and adjusted and the kick down linkage needs adjusted. It's shifting down like that because of the pressure you generate by throttling the engine full wide open. It maybe just a sensor or a sensor and adjustment but it is certainly in the transmission. Without knowing exactly what model transmission was installed, they used at least 3 models of Automatics that I know of in that year, it will be very difficult to identify exactly where to look for the sensor and kick down linkage adjustments.

You have a problem with the shift solenoid module which is mounted to the transmission.
It has either got a leaking gasket internally which is causing pressure drop and not allowing the modulator to shift correctly.
Get the gaskets replaced and a new kit put in the module and this should fix the problem.
It should only take a workshop about 2.5 hrs to do this.
Let me know or if you know more information.

Most likely a sensor or the TCM itself has gone bad. To find which you must have the codes read. Luckily this is a cheap fix, a second-hand unit will cost you less than $50. And yes, this is what caused the flex plate to fail; which begs the question why the mechanics never investigated about why it failed.

Transmission troubleshooting requires specialzed equipment and knowledge. I suggest to take your vehicle to a Transmission Shop for a diagnostic, they usually don't charge for it. This way, you'll know exactly what your problem is and what's needed to fix it.
