Question about 2002 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

Code 0700 2002 Sebring convertible - the car was fine. I was drving at about 60mph. The transmission slipped and the tach went to about 4000rpm. It then shifted and settled down. It did this repeatedly over about 3-4 miles. I started to hear a high pitched whine. The car would not shift into gear. When it sat and cooled down it would be fine for 1-2 minutes but then the problem would occur again. Fluid levels are all good.

    Same problem with a 2001 2.7 Sedan. I have read many different resolutions to this. I have changed the fluid/ filter/ input and output sensors. Next is the solenoid. What was your result?

Transmission shuders at 40mph to 60mph

could be a tranny problem developing but cheap checks include checking uni joints or cv joints for looseness. Check rear bush of tranny for sloppy slip joint fitting ( rear drive only) lift tail shaft up and down. any movement allows an out of line tail shaft to occue hence the shudder.Check the color of the tranny oil Should be a bright cherry red. Any other color ( brownish red - tan) indicates possible tranny fault

No, your truck is not shifting out of second gear when it is warm. If your check engine light is on, scan it for codes. The bands on the transmission need to be adjusted, they can be adjusted from the outside on a dodge. Inspect your transmission fluid, it it's discolored or smells burnt, have it flushed and new filter installed. Use only ATF+4 fluid. I hope this helps.

1998 Chrysler Sebring JXI V6 2.5L Transmission automatic ...the tranny does not slip and seems to shift fine (BUT) it seems like it is louder like it is not going into overdrive on highway. When i go 60mph...

Here is your clue the ABS light and a erratic Tach, that is the speed sensor problem just to let you know they are known problems with the Sebring There is a (TSB) technical service bulletin, about speed sensor delay engagement that you are facing with
A/T-41TA/AE 42 LE Delay Gear Engagement Your fix is to have this check out you may be looking at a flash on the software of the TCM or even the PRNDL switch on the transmission

RPM goes high (>4000rpm) while speed can not go up (20miles/hr), only happen when the car run for one hour, the engine is hot

Even though your description is sketchy, i can venture to say that the transmission torque converter is slipping. This usually happens when the ATF fluid overheats, and is an indication of turbine trouble.
One way to confirm this, is by turning off the car for a couple of minutes when it is slipping. If the vehicle works fine on restart, then have a mechanic look at the torque converter, it probably need replacing.

Could my transmission be slipping

Quick check is to accellerate from a stop with steady even pressure on the gas. Watch the tach. It should have a good shift at approximately 2000 rpm and the tach should not jump higher during the actual shift (called flairing) This should be the same for each shift. Converter lockup (4th gear shift) should cause tach to drop about 500rpm and should happen at about 45mph. Then repeat the same process using a more agressive acceleration.
Shift points in rpms may be a bit higher but each shift should not flair. To check lockup, while driving at about 50mph, lightly touch brake pedal and you should feel ti disengage for a moment. Since you have an opportunity to return it, It would not be a bad idea to get a hands on evaluation from another shop you trust...I can't see it from here and a live person is better equipped to give an informed opinion.

sounds like your automatic transmission is beginning to slip. I would look into getting a transmission fluid change maybe the fluid is sludged.
