Question about 1992 Chrysler New Yorker

1992 Chrysler New Yorker transmission won't shift out of first gear.

The engine runs fine, but the tranmission will not shift up. You can go anywhere as long as you are not in a hurry.

    I have the same problem with my 1992 New Yorker all of the sudden, after trans fluid and pan change, it won't shift gears.

  • drushlow Nov 18, 2008

    car will start and run fine then after a while will pop into neutral and when it decides to pop back into gear its stuck in 1st gear or low gear "what have you". I pull over turn off the car, restart the car and 90% of the time its fine but eventually it does the same thing. its been going on for a couple days now?

    any ideas?

    pretty much the same, i'll cruise @ 60 and then it will down-shift. after a few it will return to normal. but i'm afraid it's gonna kill me lol

Yes it went into limp-in mode -2nd gear and reverse only. This may or may not be a serious problem. Try removing one of the battery terminals for a few min and see if it persists. If so, you need to get the codes as a starting point to diagnosis.

Hi,

i had the same problem like drushlow in my Eagle Vision, wich has the same engine and transmission. Your transmission is going into safety mode wich allows you to go on but just in 2nd gear. The Problem in my car was the EGR Valve. In other words the engine had a problem and the transmission swiched into safety mode to make sure the engine don´t get any more damage. So i´m very sure your transmission is still OK but there is only one way to find out what is wrong. Drive to a chrysler dealer and read the errror code (that only cost you 20 to 40 dollars). After that you know what´s wrong and can decide what you wanna do.

    I had a Dynasty with the same issue. The solonioid in these transmissions can be an issue. Change your fluid and filter also. This elimintates the suspicion of low flow and the chambers not filling properly.

Check for vacuum lines going to transmission or any vacuum line under hood. It is possible an animal chewed on the lines or wires. We get a few reports of that at Fixya.

You might also look under the dash by the pedals for a vacuum leak. There are vacuum switches for parking brake release and the neutral start switch.

Not shifting into gears, car smells hot


your tranmission is sticking causing the engine to work harder thus making it run hot.
