My car sat for a week at home and then had girlfriend drive to the Airport apx 65 miles. Car sat for 4 days there.Got back and started car drove to the gas station filled up and drove to the freeway. All within a mile. Went to get on the freeway and depress the accelerator and it down shifted once and then shift up as it goes thru the gears. As i got to speed the check engine light came on and the EPS traction light came on. No acceleration now, it goes thru the gears but if you put your foot down it wont go. Its just a gradual acceration and will shift and you can be going 35 in 5th? Whats the deal, does anyone know or had this issue? I also noticed that my rear end has a little puddle on the drive way? I have 71k on it and as i was driving i noticed there was no overheating or noises from the trans? It shifted so is this a trans issue or the electronics in the accecerator or AWD?

I just took my 06 magnum in for similar problem. They replaced the ADAP plug, $14.43 for the part, $36.99 for fluid and $181.00 for labor, plus tax for a total of $232.42.

That just happened to me three days ago. I called my local dodge service dealer to ask them if i can add some fluid but they said only they can add it. They would not even tell me which type to use. To bring it in and for $280.00 they will check it. I towed it home and I'm sorry but i'm old school. I loosened the pan using a No. 30 star driver, drained the fluid and found the filter pretty plugged. I purchased a new filter and gasket from O'Riely's auto. They looked up the fluid, it takes 5 and 1/3 quarts of ATF +4 transmission fluid. I drove it to work today and it runs fine. Good luck.

I recently Purchased the 07 magnum with 109,000 miles. Car run`s and sounds perfect . no dash lights indicators(dummy lights) are on. Now the issue is between 3rd and fourth gear between 35 to 45 Mph i get a mild to medium surge back and fourth is the best way i can describe it. now i can speed up to make it go away . local mech.was no help told me there were no dash lights so there was no reason to hook up tester. stated if it went away when i speed up to do that. its been awhile since i`ve been that angry. Any way if there are any idea`s on the reslution please advise. thank you in advance for any help that you can provide!! also would like to add that it doesn`t seem to be slipping rpm`s kind of surge as well..i also put a new battery in it was told it would resolve it as well no luck there. battery didn`t chang the problem.

My '05 Magnum recently started having that same problem around 112,000 mi. The advice I have gotten so far from my mechanic friends is to get the transmission system drained and cleaned and filter replaced. Est. cost is around $200.

Yeah i have a 2005 and it never gave any indication as to trouble with the trans. I was driving one day and it just got stuck in gear. I went to a place to see if they had a dip stick to check my fluid. Luckily they did said that thing is like a 100+ . so my fluid level was fine. I had a diagnostic done for 89.00 and they said a whole bunch of stuff was bad in the trans. I took it to a transmission shop they said maybe try to change the filter first. I'm stuck i don't know what to do. 144k on it now. I've had t for 3 yrs and did some highway driving a lot.
