Question about 1991 Plymouth Voyager
I have a 1991 Voyager with a 3.3L engine. The van runs and shifts great most of the time. Every once in a while, sometimes several times in a row, the AUTOMATIC transmission will not shift out of first gear after stopping and taking off again. While still rolling down the road I have to put the van in neutral, turn off the ignition, wait a second and restart. After restarting the engine it starts to shift perfectly fine untill I stop again. Works while rolling in neutral and also works if I just pull over...Key is to kill the engine and then restart either way.
What could this be? Fluid levels are fine.
John, this sounds like a valve hanging up in the valve body. The car shifts when the govenor pressure overcomes throttle valve pressure in this valve body.
What is the condition of the fluid? Is it at all dark or grey, does it smell burnt? It should be a nice light pink. If not, have the fluild and filter for the trans changed. This may take care of the problem.
If the oil is really burnt, you are at the end of the life of the clutches and you are looking at a complete trans rebuild. If the oil is ok, a trans shop should be able to take just the valve body down, clean it and eliminate the problem without overhauling the entire transmission

I have a 91 Voyager that, every once in awhile, was hard to shift from Drive to Park. If you turned the wheel a bit while trying to shift it would unstick. My son Tried to UNstick it last night and SNAPPED something, The lever now moves freely but doesn't engage the gears. PLEASE tell me this is an easy fix?
