    well , silicone is quite acceptable and more durable than the gasket , does it leak ? the way the pan is so low and its angle the trans pan often get hit by parking curbs , and a gasket is not that forgiving .

Unless something has changed over the years, the original gasket was silicone on all pans. It is perfectly acceptable to use a good silicone on your pan.

Hi Peter, the transmission runs fine as long as it has fluid but leaks out from the bottom not sure if it is the pan. I saw two holes possible in the pan. 2003 Chrysler Voyager. Is there a pump in the...


The pump is inside

Sounds like you need to get a used transmission
pan for the bottom if it is dented,leaks etc

If your loosing fluid & drive it you will ruin it in
a very few miles when it leaks out

The gaskets are on the botton oil pan,the side drive axle
seals on the case & the front pump seal you can'r see,for
that the transaxle has to come out

Can transmition fluid get mixed with antifreeze on chrysler pacifica 2005


No, Your radiator has many small ports which when antifreeze is mixed with oil or transmission fluid creates a chocolate milk looking mixture. This will not cool your engine as it needs resulting in overheating, and or blowing of your head gasket

I have a 2004 Chrysler Sebring convertable, Problem: enging starts up nice everythings seems to be working but when I attempt to shift in to any gear the engine abruptly shuts off. [Edit]


Hi!!
Your problem is most likely the Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) Solenoid valve. Check Fuse and Related wiring, if all looks OK, remove transmission pan to get to the TCC Solenoid. The solenoid packs are known to leak. You will need to remove:
  • The transmission cooling lines
  • the Speed Sensor,
  • the plug on the solenoid block,
  • the 3 tenmm bolts on the top of the Solenoid pack,
  • the solenoid pack,
  • old gasket (the new pack comes with new gasket)

Install
  • The new Solenoid Pack,
  • the new gasket ,
  • the Speed Sensor and,
  • Transmission Cooling Lines

Start vehicle, check Transmission fluid level, check for proper shifting and have computer reset.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Leaking fluid


Only so many places these trans 41 TE can leak on the vans. Lines on top, speed sensors(input, output)one is below the lines the other is to right of the lines. Dipstick tube, trans solenoid gasket, Oil pan & extension gasket. Wipe off & clean area very well. Lines leaking, check clamps first before replacing. Speed sensor leaking replace o ring, Dipstick tube replace o ring, Trans solenoid replace gasket, Extension plate replace gasket If the pan is leaking you change the trans filter & put a gasket on the pan. The book says RTV on the pan, but FelPro make a gasket for the pan $6.99. Use a Chrysler trans filter!!!! O rings for sensors, tube around $3 each, trans solenoid gasket $3, extension gasket $10, Filter $11 + gasket $7 & 4qts trans fluid if doing the filter or extension gasket.

My 2003 chrysler concorde is leaking transmission fluid. what is causing that?


All depends on where it's leaking from. If it's leaking from the transmission pan, then it's going to be a bad transmission pan gasket. If it's leaking from the transmission cooler line or connections from the transmission to the radiator, replace the line or the connections or just the O-rings in the connections. If it's leaking from the transmission housing where the engine and transmission mates, then it may be the from pump or Torque Converter. The leak could be coming from the CV joint inner shaft where it connects to the transmission. Good luck and keep am eye on your transmission oil level, low transmission fluid will cause transmission failure.

2004 chrysler sebring oil leak


The solenoid blocks are known to leak. You will need to access this under the hood. The cooling lines well need removed from the trans, disconnect the input speed sensor, and remove it using a 1" deepwell socket. Remove the plug on the solenoid block, using an 8mm socket. You will see 3 tenmm bolts on the top of the Sol block. Remove these bolts, then gently pry the sol block off the trans. Using a scraper, remove all old gasket material from the trans case, be careful not to damage it, then thoroughly clean the mounting surface. Install the new Sol Block, with a new gasket, and torque to factory specs, re-install the input speed sensor (torque to spec), install the cooling lines, and reconnect the Sol Block 8mm screw, be sure to TORQUE all to factory spec, failure to do this could result in you damaging the new Sol block, or trans.Make sure to check the fluid level after the repair is complete, and you should have the TCM reset as well. It is fairly labor intensive, and for a first-timer, it will probably take you about 2-3 hrs to do this, provided you have the proper tools. Good luck.
