97 voyager 3.3 trany problem

This van has 222000 miles on it and is on its 3rd transmission< put in about 60,000 miles ago. The drive-train seems to lurch forward as the rest of the van trys to catch up on acceleration and as it shifts, could this be a mount? if not what else?

I put in a used transmission and the tires don't turn when I put it in gear. I took off a cooler line and started the motor, no trany fluid came out while the van was running. What could be the pr


You have to ask

You installed the same junk used unit you
where replacing

You only rebuild your unit or install a factory reman

For any transmission or transfer case & most drive train issues
you remove ,break down your parts to determine the cause
of failure & preferably rebuild your parts

I would get rid of any caravan,the transaxles are junk back
in the 1990's

All transmissions have to be meticulously rebuilt,perfectly clean,
as well as all cooler lines & coolers flushed & a return filter installed
new servos & new solenoids

That goes for power steering rack as well
With the rack if you don't there is no warrantee

My transmission slips about a hour of driving it or whan it gets hot. i can turn the van off and restart it and it seems to be ok . i can drive it again until it gets hot.


Do an old fashion transmission filter change and new fluid.

DO NOT use those transmission flush machine. It will damage trans.

Order the transmission filter kit and drop the pan.

Add the ATF to the right level.


A Caravan transmission is problematic. 80K-140K miles.

If you haul a lot of payload then the trans can be down at early as 75K!

95 ford windstar 3.8 v6 transmission, no 3rd gear


First thing is to check the fluid level in the transmission, most vehicles have to be running at engine operating temp either in P or N, check your owners manual. Assuming your fluid is where it should be, that vehicle you have sorry to tell you are notorious for transmission failures, by what you described looks like your going to have to replace the trany or rebuild it, either way its not a cheap fix. My advise if the van is in really good condition put a used trany in it and trade it in for something else. You can look anywhere online about customer/ owner feed backs on 88-98 windstar vans and how bad the transmissions are on those Ford didn't get smart till 99 or 00 when they redisgned the drive train. If you keep driving it the way it is the trany will completely fail leaving you on the side of the road somewhere.

1998 Plymouth Voyager does not shift to 3rd gear when driving,3.3


It's in limp home mode. You'll have to check wire connections and electronic controls. If it has a vacuum modulator you can remove it and look for trans fluid on the vacuum hose side (meaning ruptured diaphram). Double check the parts you replaced as well, especially if they were used parts. My dad went through three speed sensors in one year on his Caravan. You should drop the pan after checking other components. It could be a bad relay, shorted module or wire. The three speed transmissions are much more reliable than the four speed overdrive transmissions but with age and miles things can go wrong and parts will wear out.

Tranny trouble


Sounds like your idle controll sensor, it most commonly looks like a spark plug, it plugs in to the side of the transmission, near the belle housing. But for now try a quart of lucas oil in your transmission, if that causes it to shift, then your bands are stretched, and most likely need a transmission.
