HELP! 2000 Chrysler T&C won't go to normal drive?

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...

    I already did double check those 2 hoses. We also replaced the Transmission Speed Sensors (input and output). Also replaced the water pump. After fixing the vehicle, went for a test drive. Going to freeway, driving 60mph and the rpm goes all the way to 5000.

    went to a shop and finally found out what is wrong with it. reader shows PO700 and PO755. the Mechanic says it's the control solenoid. it needs to be replace. the only thing that is not right is about the price. he said it will cost me thousand dollars.

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

I do agree with the last input, check the cooler line first, and also have a technician check the valve body/ shift solenoid located on the front of the trans. I had a similar problem with mine.

    the problem is 9 times out of ten going to be the shift solenoid on the front of the transmission. you can usually get one at a local salvgw yard for a decent price and not have any problem, just be sure to replace the gasket.

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.

I have a 2000 300M that has a transmission return cooler line leak (??) and I need to know a quick fix to get it back home 1200 miles


Depending on where the leak is, you may be able to cut the bad piece out and use rubber hose or a brake line to reconnect it. If you use rubber hose you may need to flare the lines to keep the hose from slipping off. If it is one of the ends where the line connects to the radiator or the transmission you may have to get a new line and fitting from the dealer.

Leaks Antifreeze but not all the time. Location of leak right center of Radiator. ( facing radiator) will a new raditor cap help?


hi,
no, I got a brand new radiator for a STS at a radiator shop for 140.00. shop around and replacing the radiator isnt too bad usually and you will save alot of money if you buy a chilton or haynes and do it yourself. Park it where children and unwanted people dont have access to your car. thats a strange place for a radiator to burst out of the blue. If you have to drive it in an emergency leave the radiator cap on to the first click or loose, but not tight. dont drive it at all if you dont have to.
good luck..

How do I remove the radiator from a 2000 Chrysler


Thats a lot of work to take it out if you dont need to. You will need to get a Radiator Pressure Tester or pay a repair shop to do it for you. When under pressure you will need a good flashlight and a mirror to pinpoint the leak. You can always get it warm, that will increase the pressure somewhat and then look for the leak. Radiators ususally leak at the ends where the tanks attach to the core or the tank can crack.

Replaced cracked radiator in 2000 Chrysler LHS but car still overheating. What could be the problem?


I had the same problem. My Chrysler LHS kept overheating. I had the thermostat changed out first and it didn't help. Then I had the water pump changed out and still did no good. Then changed out the radiator, still overheated. Come to find out the people that changed my thermostat put it in backwards. Evidently, the thermostats for these cars look different from all the others and people are not sure how to put them in. I took mine to a Chrysler dealer and they fixed it for me.

1 Answer

Cooling system


1)yes steam will come out of the resevoir,especially with a bad rad'cap.
2)thermostats are cheap.
does your cooling fan come on?,it may be a bad sensor or relay (for fan)
3)no heat in car!?,the water pump may be bad.or the heater core is plugged,or if you have:a bad coolant valve for cab heat.(but this wont cause motor-over heating issues!)
4)you have a plugged radiator!

--sounds like a bad waterpump to me.
even if it doesnt leak,the impellers still come loose from the shaft!!
