Best Answer

The transmission "valve body" can often have problems that result in leaks and sticking. Once the seals of a valve body start to fail, the transmission clutches start to slip and eventually fail altogether. In any case, once the transmission fails in the way you describe, you're pretty much stuck with the only options being to rebuild the transmission, replace the transmission or get rid of the vehicle.

You have a problem with your transmission. The transmission is trying to shift to a lower gear than necessary. Check the transmission fluid first and if it is low add the correct transmission fluid. Do not Overfill. If this does not solve the problem than the transmission fluid may need to be changed or you may have another problem within the transmission. Can be a bad shift solenoid or a problem with the hydraulic control unit. You need to take it to a Chrysler dealership or to a trusted transmission specialist for service. Do not neglect this or serious damage may be done to the transmission if you continue to drive it.
