Re: 2008 HEMI WK not holding 5th gear when coasting

Wow, thanks for all the input guys!

So some say normal, some say not. It feels not to be honest. No CC on, just cruising at highway speeds and lift foot off gas and rpms drop out to 1000 real...

2008 HEMI WK not holding 5th gear when coasting

Just a question for the HEMI owners as this is driving me crazy. So I'm cruising 65-70MPH on the highway and sometimes (not all the time) when I take my foot off the go pedal for a few seconds...

Re: srt-8???

Re: Highest MPG reading on your WK

^^ My 08 HEMI routinely gets this to and from work as well. Driving 60-70MPH with a light foot and mostly MDS yields 20-22MPGs easy on the highway.

Re: What's the big deal over Bilsteins??

And they are yellow :-) Seriously though I threw some stock size Bilsteins on the rear only and handling has improved nicely. Adding the SRT8 rear sway helped much more though.

Re: Fifth Gear not kicking in?

My 08 HEMI has 1-5 and D if that helps any. Sounds like the 05-07 HEMIs has 1-4 and then right to D.

Re: WK Starting Issue

Mine has been struggling lately to start as well. I've replaced a lot more than the EGR too, lol. And it has a brand new starter and battery. Hopefully someone can shed light on this.

Re: MDS Functioning Properly?

I would take care of the issue before disabling and forgetting about it. You may have some sensor off/broken somewhere or tranny issues or something random. Get it checked out!

Re: Superchips, HEMI, wow.

They do support the 2010 5.7 HEMI I believe, check Amazon's website for support, they have a good list of vehicles supported for the 3875.

Re: Superchips, HEMI, wow.

The 87 tune was awesome in my experience. The mileage tune was disappointing overall, and I didn't get to mess around with 91 as much as I would have liked.

Re: Suspension, Lift, and Tire Advice

Wow, only $80 for the rear, so I imagine $200-300 for complete install. Looks like a lift and bigger tires in my future. Thanks for the inspiration!

Re: Navigation Question 2008 GC RER radio

Just run the nav map and turn the radio volume to zero. Then you will see the map and have no radio!
