Question about 1998 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

Transmission seems to come out of gear when breaking/stopped

I have a 98 Chyrsler Town & Country that has just decided to adapt this unusual problem. While breaking or when I come to a complete stop, when I go to accelerate, the engine just revs like it is in nuetral. I've tried shifting into different gears, restarting the car, nothing seems to help. It just desides when it wants to work again. If someone out there can help me that would be great. Thanks, Joe.

It sounds like your transmission is overheating, you may want to check fluid, and get the tranny flushed, and get the trans filter changed. Hope it works out.

If you have been driving it, with it over heating as well as
low on fluid your pretty much done & will need a rebuild

If you just drove 10 miles-- then possibly you could have it
diagnosed & find a less costly solution- such as bad solenoids,

The output speed sensor may have come unplugged or got damaged. It is at the front of trans close to the drivers side tire. If you lay on the ground in front of the tire you should be able to see it.
