Question about 2001 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

Transmission issues I'm fairly sure the tranny is gone, but here's what's going on: My wife was driving at highway speed yesterday when she heard a big "clunk" which shook the van. The van then lost drive and coasted to a stop. She had absolutely no movement in any gear. The van would go into park. After letting the vehicle sit for a moment, she started had all forward gears, but no reverse. However, you could only go about 5-10 mph before you would lose 1st gear and have no movement in any gear again. I pulled the codes and this is what I found: P0720, 0734, P0732, P0700. They're all transmission related, just wondering if anyone with much more knowledge than me has any imput. Am I looking a a new transmission or could is possibly be a sensor or solenoid of some sort. There is no grinding when in any gear. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just replaced the clutch, pressureplate, aznd throw out bearing on my 2000 maxima. Yesterday my wife saidit was slipping in and out of gear at highway speeds and then afterstopping to pick up our son at...


make sure the fluid is clean and topped up , the slipping in and out of gear at highway speeds indicate internal problems inside the transmission not the slave or master , those just release the pressure holding the disc to the flywheel . my guess is it has to be internal damage with blocker rings slipping maybe from dirty oil or heat damage.put a drop of trans oil on white paper and check for dirt or smell it for signs of being burnt.

Is it better to go into D3 wihile car is moving or stopped?


Well every gear has its limitations. I am not sure what the mph ranges for each gear are, but i've gotten to 60+ mph in 3rd gear. The only thing about driving on the freeway in 3rd gear is that it is alot less efficient mileage wise. Your turning more RPMS while on the freeway in 3rd gear so you burn up alot more gas.
Driving in D3 is driving in 3rd gear. It could burn up the tranny but it depends on the vehicle itself. It is not really made to do highways speeds in 3rd gear. It should be in 4th or 5th (OD)

Replace the speed sensor in the transmission this issue has caused rear differential damage on vehicles I have heard of, also check the under neath electrical connections that go to the transfer case to ensure no damage to the wiring harness or electrical plugs has occured

Sounds like you may have a worn out CV joint and the clicking may stop with an oil change. Good Luck

your highway acceleration problem could be a coil problem. Not sure if that year of chev has coil packs or not but experienced same thing with ford 5.4L. went through 3 coil packs and did the same thing each time before biting the dust. Transmission seems to be sticking on the 1to2 upshift and could be a sticking solenoid in the valve body of the tranny. If the shifting problem persists then the tranny deffinately has to be rebuilt. It's made it quite far if tha is the original tranny, you cant expect too much life out of it if it has been worked hard. I highly doubt a fluid change would help at all. Or if you want, you can buy a can of new truck from GM for about 25 to 35 thousand bucks! Typically works great!

VSS (vehicle speed sensor) Tells the PCM (computer) the speed of the vehicle so the PCM can make the proper information to the TCM (transmission control module) to shift.
YOU are goin gto need a scan tool NOt a code reader to monitor the VSS to see what it is putting out for speed when the car is moving But I believe you need a VSS but do not not Go out and buy one until you have had it tested , and can positively confrim it is bad first. Please rate this a fixya if you find this advice helpful, Thanks Randy

Transmission issue


is ''s'' light blinking on the dash
the tranny uses a speed sensor mounted on the outer side,
this sensor calculates the transmission speed and compairs it
with the vehicle speed if the tranny speed sensor is not working
proper this can cause the miss shift
