Hello, have a 2003 Dodge Intrepid SE - 2.7L with 42LE Transmission - just replaced the solenoid pack and OD-UD, LR accumulators-new filter gasket and fluid - now it's giving me OBDII codes P0700 (


It sounds like you have a handle on this but I will ask the dumb question, are you coating the orings with petrolium jelly or trans assembly jelly? As far as the codes go, you might have a bad ECM. That mmany codes all at once seems suspect.

42Le trans. will not shift out of ow gear need to locate TCM


If you are looking for the "TCM" it is pretty fair to assume that you have not yet scanned your computer network for fault codes. How do you know the problem is not being caused by something simple like a speed sensor? Just asking!

There is no "TCM" on a 2002 Dodge Intrepid. The transmission is controlled by the same computer module that controls the engine. It is called a "Powertrain Control Module" or "PCM".

2002 es intrepid wont go into park and is hard to get into reverse, is this a cable problem, otherwise car runs great


Did you have any work done to your transmission recently? If you did and it was done buy a transmission shop shame on them. This is an internal problem that occurs when the trans valve body is removed on your trans which I believe to be a A606/42LE. There is a shift plate at the bottom of the shift lever, this plate can get bent if the steering wheel shifter is not placed into the lowest gear before removing the valve body. This is an easy fix , but everything has to come out again. You would have to see it to understand. So if this was done ,this is your answer, if not then it maybe your shift cable. It may need replacing our lubrication. GOOD LUCK.

How much transmission fliud to use in my 02 intrepid


CAPACITIES
Automatic transmission, 42LE Initial Fill..........4.6 quarts [1]

automatic transmission, Total Fill
4 speed 42LE..........9.3 quarts
Differential, Front..........1.5 pints [2]

1. With ENG at operating temperature, shift through all gears. Check fluid level in PARK and add fluid as needed.

2. 42LE transaxles built after 7-26-99 fill to 3/8" (9mm) below fill hole.

Hope This Helps.

********Make sure that you use the recommended type flluid ATF+4, as there are several types available. Using the wrong type of fluid will damage your transmission********

How does the 97 dodge intrepid auto shift work?


when in auto shift mode you place gear selector in auto shift and as you drive you are in control of upshifting and down shifting, when you want to shift up you slide shifter to the right and to down shift you slide shifter to the left, but also know that the vehicle will up shift on its own if rps are to high and will not downshift all the way back to first, and try not to take off in higher gears that nwill burn the transmission

1996 dodge intrepid 3.3 transmission wont shiftout of first gear


two issues here. this may be a low fluid issue. i would check the level of the fluid first. the next issue could be a blown shift solenoid. these are located inside of the transmission pan.also, check the filter as well.(transmission filter could be clogged)
