2001T&C PO753 & PO700

OK here goes back ground first. 104,000 miles. Fluid changes in past 104,000 miles, 4 using Chrysler aproved fluids and wix filter kits. The past 24,000 miles I have noticed (my wife has not) once in a while a hard shift,and or a slow shift. Tonight ,wet and raining, out of no where on acceleration I lost RPM's and accelorater for 5-6 sec took my foot out of it gained it back but only what felt like 2nd gear, Engine light set. Nursed it 2 miles with 3 stop signs hooke up a generic OBDII and got PO753 & PO700. Now after reading some posted boards I am led to check connectors and wire harnesses. Is the big harness near the left front wheel one to check? And where is seloniod "B" located and why did i choose 2nd gear. I have been in the OEM parts business for 15 years in auto imports, and Mack Trucks. Now iddea about this Chrysler. Any other tips befor I just dig in blindfolded

    Ok, I inspected the wire connectors and harness around the tranny, no obvious signs there. I did pull the pan, metallic ware around pan magnet seems normal. However filter o-ring had 3 colors to it. black as it is a rubber o-ring, grey maybe a coating if some sort, and orange as if maybe there was a seal in its place when pulled left paint that the o-ring lifted from residue?? I don't really have an idea. the filter did have a small area near the magnet in the pan that was clean. and the filter has 1-pick-up tube w/o-ring and 2-smaller ports. 1-port nearest the magnet in the pan is damaged. could this be the issue? should i go ahead and remove the main tranny grounds and clean them? My mind keeps saying to take it to a tranny shop.

    This just in..........According to a tranny shop I use to sell transmission parts to the selinoid pack on the front of the tranny is a common problem. Chrysler part# 5140429AA. Dealer list at 211.00. I bought on from with shipping for 121.??. The part is due in today. This little town I live in stocks 6. I didnt think they stocked 6 oil filters. Surprise!!! They wanted 157.60 for it. I still got a deal. It turns out oil eventually gets into the selinoids and shorts 1 or both out. As soon as I get it in I'll let you all know if it is a fixya.. I could not have done it without all of the brain storming you all helped with. Thank you in advance.

Don't have dipstick in dodge journey why

Because Dodge in their infinite wisdom believes you don't need one; they replaced the dip stick with a cap. However, one usually can be bought on ebay for under $20. I HIGHLY advise getting one of the after market ones and use it to check the fluid level, motor running on level ground, then remove it and re-install the factory cap. Dodge/ Chrysler is notorious for not filling these transmissions to the proper level from the factory. Change transmission fluid every 60-75K miles no matter what the owners manual says. Always use FULL synthetic ATF-4 transmission fluid.

I have a 1997 Ford Taurus, Ive had the Transmission replaced twice and Im hearing that this is not a good car. Should I continue to put money into it. It gets me to where I need to go and Im more of a...

You only need regular, 87 octane, you are wasting your money buying anything else. As to wiether you should keep it, if you do not overheat it, change the oil, and make sure the trans is always to the correct level at the dipstick, and the fluid/filter is changed every 30,000 miles (it is a Ford Trans), it should last a very long time-the 3.0 is a very good engine, and the trans is not all that terrible, properly cared for. The trans fluid should NOT be dark in color, or smell 'burnt'-it should be cherry red, and when it is changed, it should be refilled with Mercon V fluid only. Change the antifreeze every 50,000 miles, use fully synthetic oil and a good filter (puralator Pure One, Wix, Motorcraft, etc.) and change it every 5000 miles (as long as it does not leak oil, synthetic should also reduce wear, increase gas mileage, and you can go past 5000 miles for changes, within reason). Lastly, do NOT drive it if it is not running right-many people will drive a car that is running badly, and this is what I see as one of the biggest reasons cars become problems-a smaller problem almost always gets worse if ignored. Don't drive it with a Check Engine Light illuminated without finding out what is causing it-as long as it is not flashing, you can drive it alittle until you can arrange to get it looked at, but if it is flashing, do not drive it-and find out why it is blinking. If it is running hotter than you are used to seeing, get it checked-check your oil level at each fillup, or better yet once a month, in the morning before you start it-if the car is on level ground, that is the best time to check it. I have a brother-in-law who has one of these, and he's put about 45,000 miles on it in the past 3-4 years. he bought it for $650 (really)-he changes the oil, he had to get the trans rebuilt, but he checks the trans fluid level once a month, changed it at 30,000 miles, and it runs great, is very dependable.

I have a 99 Mercury Marquis with 104,000 miles. About 15-20,000 miles ago I had the trasnmission fluid changed to see if it would fix some very rough shifting at highway speeds, none in lower gears or low...

Did you use the recommended fluid when the transmission was serviced?I would be more inclined to believe the fluid needs a synthetic additive to loosen up the valves in the valve body.Use lubegaurd as an additive to treat the problem you are having.This will allow the valves to move freely.

Changing transmission fluid - waste of money or not?

90k kms is about 60k miles, so yes I would recommend a trans fluid flush and refill, not just a trans fluid and filter change. when you drop a trans pan to change the filter you are only replacing at most, one third of the trans fluid. the other two thirds stays in the torque convertor. chrysler is also now using ATF+4 synthetic trans fluid(recommended).

Dexron is the standard transmission fluid used by General Motors and will work just fine in your system. If you want to spend a little extra you can buy Jeep/ Chrysler specific fluid at most parts stores.
