Hi,

Here is some possible reasons why your transmission is having those problems .

* The gear shift linkage is binding
* There is an internal problem in the transmission
* The throttle cable is broken or disconnected
* The vacuum modulator on the transmission is faulty or the vacuum line is damaged
* The electronic transmission control circuit may be faulty

Why won't my 97 dodge caravan auto transmisson shift as speed increases, transmission fluid level is good?


Could be running in 'limp mode'. This is due to a faulty sensor in the transmission or wiring problem. It is a way the computer protects your transmission from damage due to a bad signal from the transmission sensors . Other recommendations from the Dodge forum are:
"stuck in limp mode there are a few things you can do to fix the car with out putting a new tranny if you really dont need one. First thing to do would be to change in/output sensors on tranny. $16 ea. Also check the tranny solenoid pack on tranny and check contact points clean out all oil if any in there. Clean really well. This is the problem I had. When oil gets inside of tranny solenoid pack it may ground out causing the service engine soon light to come on. I noticed on mine there was burnt oil and one contact point on the female plug was kind of burnt and black colored. What I did was clean with a needle so the male pin can make a clean contact. I also opened the bad pin with a needle to make it fatter so it will make a nice contact. I put all together and everything worked!! Dodge designed the part incorrectly causing many problems with these vans." Hope this helps.

What causes 1996 Dodge Neon SOHC automatic transmission to delay or slip shifts?


that is a hum dinger, largest ever posted, in one shot.
very good.!
one word , the transmission slips. (never drive a slipping tranny)
overheat indicator.! that is key.
many newer cars will change the transmission shifting any time
the engine over heats.
and overheat wins over transmission , every time.
if the engine burns up, what good is any transmission.? nada.

solve overheat first.

slip or flare.
is when the engine RPM rises fast and the car dont go faster.
SLIPS.
and slipping burns up trannyclutchs and increases the damage. inside the transmission, dont do that. dont allow it,
park it and fix it.

on some tranny there is a temperature sensor that the TCM
watches and changes shift patterns based on AFT fluid temps.
and if the ATF fluid gets too hot , it takes actions. to keep the tranny from harm.

why not get a scan too and see what DTC errors there are..
DTC, engine overheate.
DTC< tranny overheat (caused by above)

We own a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 with an automatic transmission at low speeds the transmission is shifting from 1st to 2nd gear back and forth and back and forth. Once you get it going fast enough to shift...


sounds like a valve body problem in the tranny first try some trans matic you can get it at auto zone if that doesnt help try a fluid and filter change in the tranny!!!!!!!!

1996 dodge ram 2500 auto transmission not shifting properly


Well, first do the service. Pull the pan down and look for metal shavings. If there is metal shavings your in for a transmission. If not, you may have a problem with one of the transmissions shift solenoids located near the valve body.
P.S. The Duramax has the Allison 1000 transmission not the dodge cummins and they are one of the best trannys on the market.

Won't shift out of 1st gear


Replace the output speed sensor on the front of the tranny. It has two wires going to it. ANd looks like a round plug with a bolt like base on it. It is also white.

not sure on the set up of whether its rods or cables on this model for your gear linkages but sounds like one has either detached or broken which should be a relatively easy fix and not too expensive.Get a friend to move through gears while you look under to see whats moving and whats not.
