Thanks for the input . As i noted before , i contacted the dealer about the high idle on hot start. They stated dodge knew of the problem and were working on a fix and deemed it normal until the fix was ready which i assume will be a reprogram of the ecm.. Also ,i have a 2006 charger rt with the same engine including mds. The fast idle drops to curb idle within 10 seconds of startup when hot and drops to curd idle within 20 seconds of a cold start. The owners manual for my truck states do not put into gear until rpm drops to curb idle or transmission damage will result. If you guys have seen anything in print that updates the owners manual please let me know where you found it. Thanks for your help.
