Re: my 08 hemi 5,7 limited doesnt drive ower 30 miles speed

also yellow lights BAS and ESP.
I mean transducer is receiver for tire sensor pressure.
When I start car accelerate very fast over 30mph to about 70mph after that car slow down and its speed stabilise on 30 mph. I feel that the car is slowing down although i try to drive faster.
thanks

What are the RPM's at while your driving, high or low?

Try driving it in first, then second, then third, then fourth using the manual shifter. See if it wont go past a certain gear.

Re: my 08 hemi 5,7 limited doesnt drive ower 30 miles speed

Is there a red blinking light on the upper left of the dash with a lightning bolt on along with the BAS ESP?

If yes, then I think your going into limp mode.

If no, then

You said 2 different size tires are on the Jeep? Are you 4 wheel drive or 2 wheel? If 4 wheel that is really bad and the PCM maybe detecting a different rotation on that one tire vs the others causing you your issue, as the BAs/ESp keeps trying to compensate thinking that your tire is loosing traction/slipping, but in reality it's just rotating at a different speed due to the different size of tire and the PCM can't fix it so it will freak out and Limp you home.

If 4 wheel drive put all the same size tires on it!

Please describe the accident and all that was damaged/fixed as there are a lot of electronics in the Jeep.

Escape

I try to drive white manual shifter and there was no difference.
I think that Escape is right. I have 4 wheel drive. Next week I wil have the right tires and I wil describe the accident.

I heard "limp" mode is a myth with WK's, unless its has actually happened to someone on here and I stand corrected, only going on what I read somewhere. As for the different sized tires, you would feel the difference as well if it was that much off. on my previous GC I was cheap one time and went to a tire shop and they put two used tires on the fronts that ended up being slightly different sizes than the rears, as soon as I pulled out of there it felt like the rear was pushing the front end and there was an awful shuddering and chirping because of the all-time 4 wheel drive. you havent mentioned any of these symptoms so I dont think its because of the different size tire. The dam WK is all CAN BUS crap electronics so its prob something electrical.

No myth it's happened to me before.

Re: my 08 hemi 5,7 limited doesnt drive ower 30 miles speed

You should probably take your foot off the brake j/k. In all seriousness, you really need to take it into the dealer and have them take a look at it. I am also a member of a G37 forum, and some of the cars over there, have also had recent problems lately. Almost to what you described. Went into limp mode basically and would not go over 30mph. Come to find out, one of the guys' engines was about to blow. A few more had the same problem, but have not taken their cars in yet.
