The Dodge vehicles have an external solenoid pack that runs the trany.My experiance the solenoid pack starts to leak trany fluid into the electrical conector.Sometimes you can clean the fluid out with a spray cleaner and compressed air and it will temporaly fix the problem.If it does you know the solenoid pack will need to be replaced.

2005 jeep grand cherokee laredo transmission shifting problems


  • A/T or M/T (auto or stick, gee)
  • if A/T is this the 42RE box>? are you in DRIVE? or 1 or 2 gear.
  • does rpm rise above 3000 rpm > at your attempt? if not ,its a bad engine (weak)
  • is the shift linkage even shifting correctly (movement top and bottom)
  • check levels yet. (and for pink ./red AFT not black-metal flake
  • change the filter yet? or skip service. at 50k miles. ?????
  • check all fuses yet>?
  • using a basic OBD2 scan tool are there any tranny DTC errors?>
  • does the FSM stall test pass? in 1st.? and reverse?
  • if stall fails, slips , then tranny bad. if not its really stuck in 1st gear.
The TCM commads the gear change, there is no valve body brain.
the TCM shifts to second with good inputs to the TCM
if the TCM sees bad inputs it will tell you, SCAN IT.

1996 dodge grand caravan p1984 code....transmission problems


You don't have any money your willing to spend,
for any reason, to diagnose any of the vehicles
issues
You don't trust any type of repair shop
So how do you keep yourself in vehicles that
actually get you around?
I would get rid of it,give what i know about the
vehicle & I have no idea why your here ,when
no shop should deal with you .

1999 grand caravan automatic shifting problems (wont shift out of first)


Sounds like a transmition issue, it might be low on fluid!? If its an automatic that is, if its a standard and its hard to shift into 1st then could be a master sullinod pressure plate that is stuck in the clutch.

Either way, thats not good and I would recommend taking it to a mechanic. I would check the Better Business Burea online for your are to find a good trust worthy Mechanics shop first and read customer reviews before deciding though.

Our 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix is hard shifting. The diag codes that came up are trans codes P1811c and P1819c. Does anyone know what these codes mean? I'm having an impossible time finding them. Thanks in...


The codes mean that the Electronic Pressure Control Solenoid is going bad. The computer detects that the shifts are taking longer than 0.65 seconds. Then the computer commands maximum line pressure to avoid burning out the clutches, hence the hard shifting. My 2002 Grand Prix had the same problem, and I had great luck just installing a shift kit to speed up the shifting and haven't had any further issues.

My 2001 dodge caravan isn't shifting into overdrive.. and is hard to shift from park to drive and to reverse. any ideas?


The transmission is probably shot. the only other thing could be dirty linkage if you mean "hard" as in hard to move the shift lever. The first thing I would do is get a tranny fluid and filter change.
