problem details
2006 Dodge Charger - AWD 32,000 mi,
Same problem when attempting to accelerate gradually or the road inclines. If I let off of the accelerator or force a downshift, it goes away until the next hill. And when I accelerate suddenly just the RPM move but my speed stays the same. Dealer has looked at it twice and was unable to resolve. Flashing the transmission made no difference. I changed the transmission oil and still acting the same.

Decreased acceleration or mph down hill no fuel depress. The car slows down instead of picking up speed. Very High rpm at time of stopping with A/C on. Delay in shifts usually 1 and 2. I took it to the dealer, They say its fine/ We cant find any problems...

Transmission shudder at all shifts replased torque converter and FCC solenoid Stiil having problems will go for the pcm flash next also fluid flussed twice.
Same problem where I hear a rumbling sound from drive train when attempting to accelerate gradually or the road inclines. If I let off of the accelerator or force a downshift, it goes away until the next hill. Dealer has looked at it twice and was unable to resolve. Flashing the transmission made no difference. Waiting on a call back from dealership to schedule an appointment so the regional service rep can take a look.
