I think the harmonics theory may be right. I drive lots of miles on freeways and state hightways, so my MDS is on most of the time. When the failure actually occured, I was just crusing along about 80 or so down the freeway on y way to the NHRA Nationals in Sonoma and without any type of warning, it just quit. I thought it must have been the computer, so I kicked it in neutral then coasted off the freeway, luckily to a nearby off ramp. MOST of my driving as I said is on long straight roads, and to be completely honest, I do drive constantly between 70 and 80 mph. The only other strange thing, and it may have just been me, I did put my foot in it a day or so before, and I didn't actually see the tack, I drive an auto, but it did seem to me like it may have dropped one gear too lonw, and POSSIBLY oversped the engine. NOT SURE, but could have. Might have just gone close to redline, but then shifted right away too. I'm just saying that because it was in my mind. Any more questions? Didn't make it to the dealer yesterday, but I will today, and oh yes, I also got a case number from Chrysler just so that my concern is on record, and to help with any updates or whatever that may be available. Will try to get some pics.
