Welcome to the forum! Glad to have you here! Has this always been a problem on your 07, or is it recent?

Your '07 has the same trans as the 'o5 but it's possible that you need the TCM updated with the latest software. Have you checked the fluid level and condition in the new truck?

the truck was checked by dealer to be chrysler certified. i bought the truck in march of 2010. i have had for one month now. but no i have not checked i will. im taking back to dealer here in a couple of weeks to have struts replaced they are covered under warranty.i was thinking it was a soft ware problem. because the mechanic said he had changed filter and fluid.

Never heard of any used vehicle certification program from Chrysler. Sounds like a sales gimmick to me.

the certified means the truck went through a series of inspections and if it leaked it was fixed if it didnt work it was fixed the struts were bad and they replaced one and a week later the other one started going out they ordered a new one and apparently there is a new design off strut that replaces the old design and they are going to put both on even replace the one they just did im covered for 6 years or 80,000 miles from the original in service date....and on the mds it even acts up on acceleration if i go through the gears my self its fine it does better but not perfect when im under tow/haul mode im covered under warranty im just going to have to go through a diffrent mechanic at dealer and drive them arond i guess ......ramman07
