    Sounds like it is in limp mode.

    Transmission Limp Mode Transmission function is monitored electronically for abnormal conditions. If a condition is detected that could result in transmission damage, Transmission Limp Home Mode is activated. In this mode, the transmission remains in the current gear until the vehicle is brought to a stop. After the vehicle has stopped, the transmission will remain in second gear regardless of which forward gear is selected. PARK, REVERSE, and NEUTRAL will continue to operate. Limp Home Mode allows the vehicle to be driven to an authorized dealer for service without damaging the transmission.
    In the event of a momentary problem, the transmission can be reset to regain all forward gears by performing the following steps:
    1. Stop the vehicle.
    2. Shift the transmission into PARK.
    3. Turn the engine OFF.
    4. Wait approximately 10 seconds.
    5. Restart the engine.
    6. Shift into the desired gear range. If the problem is no longer detected, the transmission will return to normal operation.
    NOTE: Even if the transmission can be reset, we recommend that you visit your authorized dealer at your earliest possible convenience. Your authorized dealer has diagnostic equipment to determine if the problem could recur.
    If the transmission cannot be reset, authorized dealer service is required.


    Another cause: I believe I remember that while the car cannot be revved over 4,000 rpm in Neutral to protect the transmission, some people have managed to try so hard that they ended up in limp mode.

    Tell me about it! The HC makes my 2010 SRT8 feel like it had a four cylinder in it. The HC is four wheels of insanity.

    I agree with you Wayne. That said, I did see an other thread on this forum about the Hellcat not "feeling like" it makes the advertised power. My car is a HC Challenger A8 and I'll have to admit that to me it like a car that should have a less powerful factory rating. I DO NOT DOUBT the rating given to these cars by Dodge but compared to my 14 GT500 (yes it was "modded" and a M6) this car seems like a good running car but a little "tame" not "lame" just more civilized or domesticated than I expected.

    Regardless of all of that, I had an 09 M6 SRT8 Challenger and it was a great car but did not "feel" nearly as good as my current Hellcat.

    Back to the topic at hand, yes, just a few years ago 425 horse was at or near the top of the food chain, now, they are slightly above the "bottom feeders";)

    Pumps, as in more than one? Cool. Are they parallel or tandem?
