2000 intrepid, 42LE electronic 4-speed autotransaxle. O/D preasure switch circuit malfunction, Code: p1781; p0760; p0755


did you also find out that P0755 & 760 were shift solenoids B & C respectively? probably looking at replacing those. Chiltons are no help when it comes to trans work. Had a '99 LH car with a 3.2L also. Maybe look for a Service manual online, you know the ones for dealers.

Went through car wash and outside temperature reading 82 degree farenheit - it's 110 outside here in Phoenix, AZ


This part is most likely in front of the a/c condenser/ radiator or right behind the grille. There really is no way to protect it from getting wet as it will get wet when it rains anyways, however the high pressure of the car wash jets could have messed the sensor up.

1999 ford taurus.....wont go into any gear..is it the transmission?


if the shifter wont move with brake pedal pushed ck , shift interlock,brake pedal switch,and key interlock. if the shifter moves and trans does nothing ck cable underhood at trans for operation if working yes you have trans problem . ck fluid to see level or if burnt fluid will smell real bad if low trans wont work right.and a trans can fail with out setting any engine or trans codes.so ck engine light wont come on. there is some times a release by the shifter a small cover you pull off and stick a key or small screw driver in slot and shifter will move.

2002 es intrepid wont go into park and is hard to get into reverse, is this a cable problem, otherwise car runs great


Did you have any work done to your transmission recently? If you did and it was done buy a transmission shop shame on them. This is an internal problem that occurs when the trans valve body is removed on your trans which I believe to be a A606/42LE. There is a shift plate at the bottom of the shift lever, this plate can get bent if the steering wheel shifter is not placed into the lowest gear before removing the valve body. This is an easy fix , but everything has to come out again. You would have to see it to understand. So if this was done ,this is your answer, if not then it maybe your shift cable. It may need replacing our lubrication. GOOD LUCK.

Trans on my 02 wont shift out of 1st


The chrysler minivan is notorious for transmission issues. My wife had one and we put 2 transmissions in it before we decided that we had had enough. You could try to replace the trans filter and do drain and fill, but do not do a full trans flush as the car may never move again. Go here to read more about when to flush and not to flush your transmission

I have never driver a 4 wheel drive. I am going from portland oregon to phoenix az. not sure how or when to switch to four wheel. does the truck need to be in park? etc.


Do you have manual locking hubs on the front? If you do, you have to turn them to 'lock' position. If you have automatic hubs, you skip that step. Never shift into 4x4 low range while moving. You must come to a complete stop to shift in or out of low range. Regular 4x4 (high range) can be engaged while you are moving. Let off the gas, and put it in 4x4 high range, do the same to go back to 2 wheel drive. Vehicles that are part time 4x4 (can be shifted in and out of 4x4) should never be driven in 4x4 while on a dry surface, as you can cause excessive wear or even failure of the system. So only use it in snow, off road, etc. Have a safe trip!
