You may have to have your ******/computer ran for any codes to give you a better idea of why it is limp mode. There are many causes of limp mode. A sensor or solenoid or bad wire will send the computer into limp mode. The TPS and map sensor both can affect limp mode
could be the T.P.S. sensor(throttle position sensor). It would be worth the money to have a free scan done by an auto parts store, as there are too many electrical problems that can happen, I.A.C. , M.A.P. and O2 sensors, also check to see if all the spark plugs are getting spark, if a plug isnt firing, then it will stutter lose power and could cause the gas odor because its not burning the fuel in that cylinder before it is exhausted.
limp mode as in computer limp in mode?check the trans fluid is it dark looking?,
Need more info. Did you have the trans fluid changed recently? The reason i ask is when you change the trans fluid way after its do the new trans fluid is detergent type and fresh fluid can put the transmission in shock(Trans Shock). This can wipe out a transmission in 5 miles or so seen it too many times.
Let me know how it goes. Lee
Your car most likely has gone into what is commonly called "limp in mode" The codes are transmission codes and you'll need to have it checked out and repaired. Something very common to Intrepids are the vehicle speed sensors going bad. If one or both go bad it will go into limp in mode and not shift properly. There is an input and an output speed sensor on these transmissions. Normally we would just change both because they are relatively inexpensive and easy to change. Hope that helps, gl.
Flush out your transmission with the correct type fluid, Mopar ATF+4, and correct filter. Disconnect Negative cable, to reset computer, for at least 24 hours. Check grounding straps for PCM, ensure they are tight and clean.
This method worked on my 2003 Intrepid SE, 3.5L, Police Pkg car.
