1998 Plymouth Voyager does not shift to 3rd gear when driving,3.3

1998 Plymouth voyager 3.3L 3 speed automatic tranny does not shift to 3rd gear when driving.I put it on a scan tool and it tells me it has a transmission control system malfunction and gear 3 ratio is incorrect.Would that mean that the modulator needs replacing?I already replaced the tranny control module and speed sensor.

It's in limp home mode. You'll have to check wire connections and electronic controls. If it has a vacuum modulator you can remove it and look for trans fluid on the vacuum hose side (meaning ruptured diaphram). Double check the parts you replaced as well, especially if they were used parts. My dad went through three speed sensors in one year on his Caravan. You should drop the pan after checking other components. It could be a bad relay, shorted module or wire. The three speed transmissions are much more reliable than the four speed overdrive transmissions but with age and miles things can go wrong and parts will wear out.

Sounds like a valve body problem, or shift solenoid inside the transmission. Sounds like it is sticking. Check fluid make sure it is not brown which means it is burnt, and make sure there is plenty of fluid but not overfilled.

Hate to say it but not very likely. Mine cost me $1500 for a rebuilt. Doesn't hurt to check a few local shops that deal with transmissions.

Voyager transmission problem


Sounds like you need a solenoid pack to start, and possibly a service. If the tranny is not slipping, the solenoid pack is stuck and not tell it to shift up. Could possibly be a TCM, but not as likely.

96 plymouth voyager no shift


you say the fluid looks good... that's great.
now next time your out drive for about ten good minuetes long enough for the transmission to get nice and warm and then pull over to nice level ground and with the vehicle in park check the fluid again. it's kind of hard to read because it always has a lot of bubbles on it and stuff. but it may be low on fluid.. good-luck ray
