Car revs high before catching gear

Asked by Aug 11, 2017 at 12:14 PM about the 2004 Chrysler Sebring LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car started out with a code 340, cam shaft
sensor, when it would shut off cruise control,
engine light came on, and wouldn't let me go over
2500 rpm without jolting. Got worse a week later
when it started revving up to 5000-6000 rpm
before catching the next gear to increase speed.
Shop did a full diagnostic on it, checked the fluid
which was full, and said they'd need to replace the
tranny filter and pan gasket. Since it was still
showing the cam shaft sensor in the engine light, I
replaced that before anything else was done to it. It
drove fine for a day and a half then started doing
the same thing again. I'm being told different
things by different shops. They don't seem to know
what's wrong and want to go exploring. I can't
afford for them to do that so I'd like to try and fix it
myself.
