If you experience rough shift and/or shuddering during gear shifting, software updates to the powertrain control and transmission control modules (PCM and TCM) are available which may address these problems. On higher mileage vehicles, a mechanical failure may exhibit similar symptoms. Proper diagnoses should be performed before any repairs or software upgrades are attempted.Google+

automatic transmission. rpms climb way high before shifting into second I had to let off of the throttle rpms dropped then tranny shifted. Weather was cold. Later that day it seemed to drive across town fine picked up my son turn car back on and immediately died like I turned the key back.this happened twice so the third time I gave it generous throttle it then idled fine and shifted home fine.I'm on earlier I also have the car die on me while I was driving while adjusting the foot pedels using switch on driver seat.
I did about 5 minutes of research and found there are a lot of software updates available for my magnum that are supposed to solve a variety of electrical problems from flashing dash lights to irregular transmission shifting.

pcm/tcm problems.. auto repair states 950 to 1000 dollars to repair. Is that correct.
