Question about 1998 Plymouth Voyager

2 Answers

Have a winding sound coming from transmission.

Also it has a hard time down shifting when starting from a stop. Wants to stay in 3rd/High gear. I can make it shift by accelerating or manually shifting. No slipping of gears from what I can tell. Winding sound is constent while driving. When engine cold, upon start, you do not hear the winding, but once you engage the transmission, the winding starts and can still be heard (not as loud) when placed in park/netural and accelerate the engine.

    Transmission was rebuilt 45000 miles ago. Van has 160000. Fluid levels are good and last change was just under 18000 miles.

    You may need a transmission filter service, if the fluid level is good when checked properly. How many miles on vehicle and has it ever had a transmission filter change? Is fluid level good?

    If filter is clogged fluid will circulate very slowly or not at all. Please do not drive until fluids can be checked or taken to a service station, you can cause serious damage to trans if not checked soon.

I do not believe there is a DIY solution to this problem, You could try Lucas brand transmission fix. Would only help the problem temporarily. You may have a band in the xmsm going out, or a shift valve. I know 45000 miles does not seem like much on a rebuild, but something is going on inside the case. The Lucas xmsn fix is really thick fluid and it sticks in the valves and makes them fill faster to get to the next gear, or as I understand it, may fix whining for awhile, but when it returns you will have to take it to a transmission shop.

Specifically what programmer/tuner do I need to adjust the shift points ??


Sounds like the tv cable is out of adjustment. Take it to a transmission shop and have it adjusted properly. If you don't you can burn up the transmission. The cable controls fluid pressure and shift points.

1997 gmc 1500 went to start and tach and speed odometer not working and transmission shifts in hard and wont shift down stays in like high gear


Check transmission fuse its the one labeled PRNDL or similar.Use a test light when you check it by the way.If the fuse is good then its probaly your ignition switch failed.If that fuse is bad or the ignition switch is not suppling power to that fuse your tack,speedo,and gear indicator wont work, and your transmission will go into a safe mode.Safe mode is just the transmission staying in 3rd gear all the time until you fix this.

Check transmission fluid. If that is full, try changing the fuel filter. It could be starving for gas, and trying to shift but can't. It could also be the speed sensor, or shift solenoid.

Wont go into reverse and doesnt go into 3rd unless i let off gas


It sounds like you broke the sun gear shell in the transmission. This is real common on 4L60E. The transmission will have to be disassembled to fix it. If this is what is wrong it will have no reverse and hold 1st till about 30 and then skip 2nd, right to 3rd. Then never shift in to 4th.
