A 97 2.6LT 2 wheel drive auto Rodeo,took box out when i put it back in it haze no gears like its not getting oil,.why

the problem may be in the installation process of the box
the correct procedure is to put the torque converter onto the shaft of the transmission first and push it all the way back to engage the oil pump for the transmission
install the transmission then pull the torque converter forward to install the bolts through the flexi plate
putting the torque converter in first then putting the box up generally results in the drive for the oil pump not connecting properly in the torque converter

I have a 1998 town and country 3.8 tranny that won't go into gear. The van stays in neutral for all gears. Everything from the internals to pump to torque converter are brand new. It was rebuilt 2 times....

If the unit has been rebuilt properly in an accredited shop then a place where a problem occurs is the installation of the box in the car. It is essential that when fitting the unit that the torque converter is fitted onto the shaft and pushed back to the box to engage the pump drive before it is offered up to the flex plate and bolted onto the engine. Once the bolts have been fixed then the torque converter can be pulled forward that bit to bolt to the flex plate. If the torque converter is bolted first and then the box offered up it is possible that the pump is not engaging correctly and not working. To check this put a pressure gauge in a line to check for oil pressure in the box when running.

I put in a used transmission and the tires don't turn when I put it in gear. I took off a cooler line and started the motor, no trany fluid came out while the van was running. What could be the pr

You have to ask

You installed the same junk used unit you
where replacing

You only rebuild your unit or install a factory reman

For any transmission or transfer case & most drive train issues
you remove ,break down your parts to determine the cause
of failure & preferably rebuild your parts

I would get rid of any caravan,the transaxles are junk back
in the 1990's

All transmissions have to be meticulously rebuilt,perfectly clean,
as well as all cooler lines & coolers flushed & a return filter installed
new servos & new solenoids

That goes for power steering rack as well
With the rack if you don't there is no warrantee

Label in the box tells you so

What kind of torque converter and transmission on a 2007 grand prix base 3.8l non supercharger

No I think you just have a worn out ****** that need to be rebuilt, just replacing the torque converter is not the fix, since the ****** must come out to replace the torque converter that is when you rebuild it.

2003 passat 130bhp tdi auto. oil leaking fromtork converter the car recently had a gearbox oil and filter change and drove perfectley but when i put it into reverse and drove it for about 50 meters all...

Hi Craig,
I'd suggest that the oil seal which seals between the torque converter neck and the gear box casing is damaged and will need replacing. The job seems simple but in fact can result in breaking the gearbox oil pump, when the torque converter is refitted to the gear box. the neck has to align with the gears inside the gear box and the oil pump, if the torque converter is not fitted correctly the damage I've mentioned will take place when refitting box.
If you would like to proceed let me know.
Regards Johngee10

Volkswagen 01M torque converter stuck

You have to be very careful with input shaft rings. They like to eat into the pump stater. Also always buy new vb don't buy rebuilt because they only work 2 out of 5 times. I know this for experience

Toyota Mr2 Automatic transmition problems

Not 100% sure on that one but very common in past that torque converter would move out from transmission slightly, and cause similar problem. used to have to rotate torque converter, while pushing in toward transmission, and suddenly when in the right place, would pop inward another inch or so. Had to remember to do that all the time. Sometimes you could rotate that torque converter 20-30 times before you'd get the "pop" and it would move in to place. Can you spin torque converter easily,while against engine? If not, that may be your problem. If so, back off bolts until you can carefully, and try that, you may find things come together easier after if that is the problem.
