The proper fluid for that Tranamiaaion is Mopar ATF Plus 3 Type 7176. I recommend using it as I have found it does make a difference.

LOW-REVERSE BAND:

  1. Loosen, then back off lock-nut approximately five turns.
  2. Tighten adjusting screw to 41 in.lb.
  3. Back adjusting screw off 3½ turns, then tighten lock-nut to specifications
KICK DOWN BAND
The kick down band adjusting screw is located on the left side, top front of the trans-axle case.
  1. Loosen lock-nut and back off nut approximately five turns. Ensure adjusting screw turns freely in the trans-axle case.
  2. Using tool No. C-3880-A and adapter tool No. C-3705 , or equivalents, tighten band adjusting screw to72 in.lb.
  3. Back adjusting screw off 2¼ turns, then holding screw in position, tighten lock-nut to specifications.
Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any other questions you may have.

What all do i need to adjust transmission bands in 2001 dodge dakota


Bands are adjusted when you build a transmission

You do not need to adjust

The amount of band thickness & wear, is so small,
that the trans is shot, long before you have any wear
that needs to be adjusted

If you turn the screw the wrong way, the band falls off at
the ends & you can't reach in there to replace it & the unit
has to come out & apart

You will see no difference if you brought that band down tight
on the drum & then loosened it the correct number of turns

The servo will apply the band & there is no reasons for a delay

Your 2001 is 13 years or more old

If the fluid has not been changed every 2 or 3 years
since new,it is about to expire

What does the part look like? If it's a larger chunk of metal it could anything from a bushing in a planetary to pieces clutch material. I could use some more information here. If you have a picture that would be even better.

I would check out your kickdown band inside your transmission. You can check it by removing the pan and pulling down the valve body. Once you get the valve body down you can see the kickdown band it is the band closest to the front. Check the tabs where the band adjuster is. The tabs on the band itself can get bent causing the band to be way out of adjustment which will cause shifting problems like you are having. Sometimes you can just bend the tabs back and reset the adjustment on the band. If its too bad though you will have to pull the transmission and change the band. But before you do all this check to make sure your kickdown lever and cable are working properly. Sometimes if it is binding on your shift leaver your shifter might move hard or your gas pedel can feel super easy to push or hard to push. good luck hope this helps

1997 Dodge Caravan Sport. I was driving normal then it quit pulling. Now have 3 forward gears no more than 8 miles an hour. No reverse. Dropped trans pan small metal on magnet.Fluid looked ok. Changed...


The correct fluid to put in a 1997 van is (ATF-3). Sounds like you need to make adjustment on both the forward and reverse bands of the transmission to correct your problem. The kickdown band (front) forward is located at the top (outside) of the transaxle near the front. To adjust the band,loosen the lock nut approximately 5 turns. With the lock nut loose the adjusting screw should turn freely in case. Tighten the adjustment screw with an inch lb. torque wrench to 72 in-lbs. Then back the screw out 2 1/4 turns, hold the screw in place and tighten the lock nut to 35 ft-lbs. Then after removeing the transmission pan and filter the low-reverse band is located next to the valve body. Loosen the lock nut 5 turns so the adjustment screw is free. Turn the adjustment screw in to 41 in-lbs, then back the screw out 3 1/2 turns. Hold the adjustment screw and tighten the lock nut 10 ft-lbs. Install transmission pan/with gasket and refill transaxle to proper level. Test drive van. Be safe and block the rear wheels before you raise the van and try to work under it. Hope this will help you.

'98 DD sport 4x4 115,000...I let my truck warm up for 5-10 minutes. Everything sounds good feels good. I accelerate up to 60 mph at about 3000 rpm and it wont shift to 4th.


Have your transmission serviced. The owners manuel says to do this every two years or 24k. There are Two reasons for this one being that during the service the clutch bands need to be adjusted the second reason is that debris in the transmission filter can cause the condition that you are describing. Make shore to have the service done by someone who Knows what they are doing as the clutch band adjustment is critical. Chrysler transmission require ATF + 4 fluid use of any other type of fluid will damage transmission.

Jeep grand cherokee revs for to high before changing gear


Message:
My 2002 Dakota has been somewhat confused about shifting as well. It showed a code P1762. I dropped the pan to install a new fluid filter and fluid-(use only ATF+3 or ATF+4). Since the pan was off I decided to adjust the bands. The front band controls the 2nd gear cluster. The rear band controls the 3rd gear cluster and reverse. For a 2-3 shift, the transmission shifts back to 1st gear with the front band while the rear band engages 3rd gear. If the front band does not release the 2nd gear clutches before the third gear clutches engage, the transmission binds, which shortens the life of the transmission clutches. If the front band releases too early in the shift, the engine will overspeed (sounds and feels like a slip) during the 2-3 shift.
The front band adjusting screw is on the driver's side above the shift linkage. The rear band is inside the fluid pan near the filter.
1. Loosen band adjusting screw locknut. Then back locknut off 3-5 turns. Be sure adjusting screw turns freely in case. Apply lubricant to screw
threads if necessary. The front band adjuster is on the outside of the transmission and the locknut requires a 3/4" wrench.

2. Using Inch Pound Torque Wrench C-3380-A, a 3-in. extension and appropriate Torx� socket (T-40), tighten adjusting screw to 72 in-lb. CAUTION: If Adapter C-3705 (from SPX Miller) is needed to reach the adjusting screw, tighten the screw to only 47-50 in. lbs. torque.

3. Back off adjusting screw the number of turns listed below for your transmission.

4. Hold adjusting screw in place and tighten lock-nut to:

41 N�m (30 ft. lbs.) for the front band
34 N�m (25 ft. lbs.) for the rear band
The adjustment screw inside the case is a square head bolt. You will need a 1/4 square head socket to fit your torque wrench.
