Question about 1989 Plymouth Voyager

2 Answers

My 1989 2.5L turbo won't go back

I had to leave my van in a parking lot and after a while, it would not go back or go into neutral either but will run almost fine to the front; it is not shifting very well though; my mechanic recommended a complete transmition change, but it is somehow expensive ¿is there any alternative solution to this problem?

Hi,this is a very comon isue ,just be sure that you get an expert to run the diagnosis, in a lot of cases there can be selenoids that need to be replaced , or external parts that can be replaced without removing the transmission, ,this can be a lot more inexpensive than rebuild or replace the complete transmission, C1

I can go from park to drive without using the


Uuuh... No. There is an electrical link between the brake pedal and the transmission to prevent that from happening.
1. It keeps kids from pulling the lever out of park when they are too small to reach the pedals (first hand experience with that one back in the 60's!).
2. It keeps grownups from pulling it into gear with the engine revved up and crashing into things in parking lots and driveways.
3. Transmissions go from Park to Reverse, Neutral, then Drive. Without the brake on, there would be lots of excessive shocks to the transmission.

No power backing up driveway


Check the gear box oil level....I'm thinking that you have a auto box....this should be done on level ground and with the engine running at idle speed....To check level correctly place your foot onto the brake hard and also select the parking brake....With the engine running, move the selector lever from park into reverse and then to neutral then to 'D', followed by the lower range gears and then moving up to 'D', and then to neutral again and then to reverse and back to neutral....Leave each position engaged for about one second....Leaving the engine running and the park brake engaged check that the gear box oil is at the correct level....It should be between the marks indicated on the red topped dip stick....When filling with Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) through the same tube where dip stick is located the engine should also be running and care taken not to over fill....Once at the correct level the vehicle should behave normally.

I left for work this morning and everything seemed to be fine, I arrived at work and my '02 grand prix gt would not shift into park. It will shift into any other gear except park. My car is in the...


you should be able to pull key out in neutral. It sounds like a brake pedal issue not making contact with switch for shifter. Happens a lot actually. Until you can get serviced do it like a manual for now and as I stated you should be able to pull keys out. Its a button behind brake pedal. Try pusing it but leave car in park. Its usually a green and black switch. Leave car e brake on though. Safety reasons. Hope this helps

Hello,
It sounds as if the transmission's clutch plates are excessively worn. You have 2 options;
1. Replace all of the transmission fluid & the filter too. That may fix the problem although not guaranteed to work completely.

2. Do what I ultimately had to do (after trying the 1st thing) and bring it to a Transmission repair shop and have it rebuilt for $1,400 (as good as new). I thought the van was worth it and I could get a lot more miles from it of course you have to determine this for your self and your van's condition.

Good Luck!
