Question about 1993 Dodge Stealth

1 Answer

Dodge stealth I have a 93 dodge stealth with a f4a33-1 auto that I had rebuilt about 2 years ago. now it has no reverse and while driving it was grinding going into drive and would not move. I trailered home and it still does not have reverse but now it will drive in forward. My guess was it had failed internally but the fluid is not burnt and I have no shavings on the stick. What do you think???

Sounds like a problem in the valve body control, or the vacuum control of the valve body.
The vacuum control leak could cause the grinding noise because it didn't actuate far enough when trying to engage reverse.
In either case this is something for a transmission shop to handle.

You said you had it rebuilt. Did they rebuild the transmission you had? Or did they just swap it with a rebuilt they already had on the shelf?
My first call would be to them to see what the warranty coverage was from the last repair. My guess would be that it might not be, but it could, it's worth a shot.

Let us know what they say.

Clutch disk or pressure plate or both are worn out, and I would replace the throw out bearing. You can buy a kit at autozone or kragen that has everything all together 100-200 dollars.

My 1994 dodge stealth is an automatic i can shift into reverse but wont move unless revved if i try drive it will not go into gear period. we had an ice storm and i havent been able to get it to shift into...


I would start off by checking the fluid level to see if it is low, and to see what condition it is in. When you pull the transmission dip stick, wipe the fluid on you finger, the reason that you will want to do this is to smell the fluid, and feel if there is any debris. If the fluid is any other color that red, it needs to be changed, and if the fluid smells burnt, then it needs to be changed. You stated that when you rev the engine that the car tries to go into reverse. Automatic transmissions are driven by pressure, and if the fluid level is low, or the filter is clogged, it will not build enough pressure to move the car.

Have a 93 stealth r/t twin turbo just had engine rebuilt had been running good for a week then it seems to have lost power and died but looks like it is pushing 14 lbs of boost just sitting getting fuel...


Everytime Ihave come in to a ECU that is failed it is like a light bulb, it either works or doesn't. My first thought is twoards oxygen sensor, these cars will, by design, run rich if an O2 sensor fails. I believe your car has two O2 sensors?

Please let me know,
Thanks,
Tom
