Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

Transmission problems I brought my 1997 caravan through a car wash and the temperature was -25, that was a saturday. Sunday we went to use the van and could not shift into any gears. The shifter goes to every gear but does not engage. On occasion it make what sounds like a grinding noise. Is the tranny just frozen or is there other pricier problems? The car wash I got was the SUPER WASH, that one sprays the under carrage. We tried putting a lamp under the tranny for about 4 hours and still nothing. Also we tried hitting it with a hammer to knock off some ice or loosen ice but still nothing.

95 dodge caravan transmission will shift when cold but once van gets warm after about 30 mins of driving, wont gear down, just stays in low gear... do i need a new transmission?


It could be a solenoid in the transmission, or the pump, or something in the valve body. You will probably need a shop have a look at it.
I would get a couple of estimates from different shops.

Transmission slipping 97 dodge grand caravan 3.3L V6 108,000 miles. when cold sometimes fails to engage for 20-30 seconds. Fluid leaks very slowly. I keep it full.


IF THE TRANSMISSION SLIPS THE FORWARD CLUTCHES ARE LIKELY WORN OUT OR THE TRANSMISSION HAS LOW HYDRAULIC PRESSURE, BOTH REQUIRE THE TRANSMISSION BE TORN DOWN AND REPAIRED OR OVERHAULED.
