it sounds like your TV (throttle valve) cable may be adjusted too tight..

check out www.speedtweaks.ca/tipsandtricks.php
under "how to adjust the tv cable" among other usefull tips on that site.

hope i helped...

I just had my sons 2000 r/t in the transmission shop. They adjusted the TV cable and road tested it for $25. It shifts fine now.

there is a revised governor pressure sensor for this problem listed in tsb# 18-19-98. It also recommends adjusting the throttle valve cable as stated in daffydak's post. So if the adjustment alone does not help you may want to get the sensor, I think it is around $80 if my memory serves me right.
