Question about 1994 Chrysler Concorde

1 Answer

Hard down shift

My 1994 chrysler concorde has a horrible jolt when in downshifts to 1st gear. It feels like the tranny is going to fall out of the car. I recently topped off my fluid and i'm wondering if the new fluid could cause that or if i overfilled a little.I had one shop tell me it needed a rebuild at the cost of $1500.00 1994 with 112,000. He mentioned the low reverse something. I have no clue what that meant. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanx.

You might call another shop and ask them about a detenete cable that helps the tranny wouldnt take a complete rebuild to fix a hard downshift if its something as simple as a detente cable

Car will not shift out of second gear. while driving it shifts fine to second gear from first gear but it stays in second gear the entire time driven

it is going in limp mode,
if your speedometer is not working will cause this,that would be a speed sensor,or the other two reasons would be the input or output sensors on the tranny

95 geo manual tranny have had problem down shifting to 1st gear for couple months now 2nd is getting hard to downshift and upshift have replaced rubber bushings bolts etc.on shift linkage adjusted etc.

Sounds like your synchronization rings inside the tranny are wearing out try changing the transmission oil and adding product like lucas oil treatment , if it helps lay off the downshifting until your ground speed matches your engine speed for the gear your ring to go in. like really slow speeds ...

High idol all the time& tranny problems

Check for vacuum leaks on the high idol. You have a speed sensor or wiring issue with the tranny. Will need to be checked somewhere with a computer to know for sure on the tranny.

94 Chrysler Concorde Tranny Problems

Have your transmission oil filter changed;
it is located under the transmission pan
The oil is what makes the transmission shift
When you shut off the engine it stops the transmission pump then when you start up again the transmission shifts until the filter clogs again

On a 95 chrysler concord the tranny will not up.

Not really, there is a high and low solenoid on the side of the transmission, sometimes they become loose and disconnect.

Shift problems in 95 chrysler concorde transmission

Sorry but if your reverse is having trouble you will probably have to replace or rebuild tranny like me. Otherwise try new filter and fluid first.
