i had the same problem like drushlow in my Eagle Vision, wich has the same engine and transmission. Your transmission is going into safety mode wich allows you to go on but just in 2nd gear. The Problem in my car was the EGR Valve. In other words the engine had a problem and the transmission swiched into safety mode to make sure the engine don´t get any more damage. So i´m very sure your transmission is still OK but there is only one way to find out what is wrong. Drive to a chrysler dealer and read the errror code (that only cost you 20 to 40 dollars). After that you know what´s wrong and can decide what you wanna do.

If you have the Owners Manual for the car look up flasher and it will show you a diagram of the relays so that you know what you're looking for. I own a 1992 Chrysler New Yorker Fifth Avenue and the flasher relay is located right above your glove box on the passenger side. You have to unscrew the glovebox casing with a phillips screw driver. Once you have this unscrewed there are your fuses and two sets of relays. One relay set that you can see on the right side (this is not where the flasher relay is) and one that is up more in the dash and closer to the inside part of the car by the side of the air condition controls. This is where the flasher relay is located. You can slide the whole casing of relays up off of the metal hook that it is held on by, and then pull it down and out so that it is easier to work on. There should be two square relays and two circle relays. When holding the case of relays, the two square relays are on the left and the two circle relays are on the right, it will be the top right circle relay that is the flasher relay. This took me forever to find. I hope this helps all of you so that you don't have to rip your dash apart like I did.

Hi, this symptom is usually caused by a stuck valve, such as the EGR or purge valve or possibly the idle air control valve. What I recommend is to remove these valves one at a time and check them for proper operation. Often they may just need cleaning to allow them to operate properly again. In the case of the purge valve, sometimes the charcoal cannister will begin to fail and will allow bits of charcoal into the vacuum line to the purge valve. The charcoal can jam the valve open (it should be closed when the engine is idling). If you find charcoal in the vacuum line to the valve or in the valve itself, replace the cannister and clean out the hoses. The purge valve should be closed by default. The EGR valve draws exhaust gas back into the engine, and can get really gunky. If it is, you will need to clean it thoroughly with carb cleaner, and then make sure it closes by default. The idle air control (IAC) valve is controlled by the computer using several inputs to keep the idle at the specified idle speed. If the valve seat is dirty or the passages blocked with gunk, the valve cannot properly control the idle air flow. Again, remove the valve and clean both the valve and the air passages in the throttle body. While you have the air hose off the throttle, also check the throttle for dirt and clean as appropriate with carb cleaner. I have pasted information below on where these valves are in your car. This information my not be exact, as I wasn't sure which engine you had. If you have any trouble finding these valves, please get back to me with your engine size. Please let me know if you have questinons, and thanks for using FixYa.
