Sounds like your tranny guy just did a bad job, the tranny needs to come out and be inspected internally. I bet the guy has a lock pin in wrong, or not at all.

Hello
You will need to have an experienced technical drive this before attempting any repairs, but my gut feeling is that you will need to rebuilt the transmission. That takes many special tools and a high degree of skill and training and is not something that really can be done at home with common hand tools.

MY TRANSMISSION WONT CHANGE ON A 96 PLYMOUTH GRAND VOYAGER


This transmission goes into failsafe ( 2nd gear) if the computer detects any problem , even a minor one. Need to have codes pulled.

My 1994 Voyager does not want to upshift. It stays in 2nd gear. I used to be able to let it warm up, turn it off, restart it and it would shift. It is now stuck and will not go into 3rd gear. It seems this...


The solenoid for upshifting to higher gears is likeley to be bad. The VSS or speed sensor can be tested by driving the vehicle and observing the speedometer representing accurate speed.

This sensor is used for shift points as well.

I think the transmission needs to be flushed and filled for about $100 or so at shop that does this service.

If that does not solve the problem, a rebuild or replacement transmission will be necessary to fix the problem, if you plan on keeping the car.

Warming it up to get it to shift gives me hope that maybe changing the fluid will help, but can't guarantee it will solve the problem completely.

Transmission must be torn down and rebuilt, in my experience.

Transmission shifts down abruptly when accelerating.


It most likely is a transmission issue, a internal issue inside the transmission.

To make a long story short, your transmission is done. Sorry. I just went through this with my Voyeger.

Voyager transmission problem


Sounds like you need a solenoid pack to start, and possibly a service. If the tranny is not slipping, the solenoid pack is stuck and not tell it to shift up. Could possibly be a TCM, but not as likely.
