Question about 1991 Chrysler New Yorker
I have a 1991 Chrysler New Yorker Fifth Ave. with a 3.3 liter V6 with automatic transmission. I Love the car in its near new condition but the Transmission is bothering me. When the car first fires up in the morning and even after a good warm up... everything is fine. However after driving around town or in a parking lot for a while(that was the first time it did it) the transmission will not shift out of first gear. Also it is really hard to not notice that after the transmission gets warm (i.e only after about 20 min. of driving) the transmission stalls when going from reverse to drive and when it goes... it slams! This all seems to me like heat related problems and the problems get worse if the car is running on the hot side of "normal" as indicated by the dash. If I lose the gears(only happened three times in 6 months) i pull over and sit for twenty min or so with the engine off and everything is fine (still hard shifting though) Just for clarification, when the car does shift while driving... regardless of heat, it shifts smoothly through all gears. Only hard shifts from reverse to drive. It was suggested to change the filter and fluid but before i venture into that i wanna know if there is possibly a way to add an external transmission cooler and if you think this might solve the problem. Hopefully someone has a much better and simpler solution LOL. I thank you for your time!
