I'm a newbie to dodge/chrysler cars, so please bear with me. I'm somewhat mechanically inclined but no expert by any means, and I'm hoping you guys can help me out. Before I get into it, I did try searching for this problem and couldn't turn up anything.
I have a 2002 Intrepid and it's been shifting funny. The car will run fine when I first start it up, but after I've been driving it at highway speeds for any amount of time, it won't recover top gear. What I mean is, if I'm on the interstate and get off, drive around town [again it doesn't matter for how long], then try to get back onto the interstate, it won't shift into back into top gear. But if I stop, put it in park, shut the car off and then start it right back up, it will shift into top gear and drive normal.
The fact that I can shut the car off, turn it right back on and it will drive normal tells me that it's likely a sensor or electrical problem of some sort, I just don't know what to check or where to look for it.
Thanks in advance for your help.
