Question about 2000 Chrysler Town & Country
First, radiator was the problem. It was leaking bad. We repalced it into a new one. After fixing it, went for a test drive. Thought everything is good. Drove it to the Freeway, and noticed that the rpm is so high and it won't go to normal drive. Can someone please help me? Can anyone tell me what is wrong? I have read here in this website that I need to change the speed sensor. Is this the right solution? Thank you very much...
Well the bad thing about this is that two codes that the tech found are control pressure and a trans fault. the price is due to the fact that the solnoids are not sold seperate they are sold as a pack. and that also includes the trans computer and reflash. not a lot you can do sorry wish i could give you better news good luck kdc744

Hi, how are you... : )
So if I understand correctly what your problem is, you had a leak with the radiator and no transmission issues at that time. Then after replacing the radiator the leak went away.... then the car's engine RPM goes high and won't drive normally just after the repair.....
I assume that the vehicle is automatic trans? With that assumption, I also assume that that design has a transmission cooler also. My educated guess and experience tells me something happened with the radiator install that could have caused your problem. You may need to look at the cooler lines going to the radiator. (the small hoses at the bottom or side of the radiator.. 3/8 inch dia for example) See if the two hoses are kinked or twisted going next to the radiator. Sometimes, transmissions can do weird things when the cooling lines are restricted. It might have a bad radiator where the cooler is blocked also (extreamly rare for a new unit but possible.)
A second idea is the the new problem happened just out of coincidence and not related to the repair at all..... In that case further investigation is needed. Hope this helped you.
