The trick is to place the torque converter onto the gear box first and slide it back to the gear box. position the gear box against the engine housing and do up the bolts. Then through the inspection cover opening pull the converter up to the flex plate align the bolt holes ,insert the bolts and tension up

200 Chevy 1500 4-wheel Dr had transmission rebuilt I installed it and filled with fluids started up put in gear and nothing unhooked transmission coolant lines and nothing comes out of lines telp


If no fluid is coming out of the cooling lines, the pump is not working. The pump is driven by the torque converter. When you bolted the transmission to the engine, did you ensure the torque converter was fully seated, and there was no binding? When you were getting the torque converter aligned with the flex plate, did the torque converter rotate freely? If all this was OK, you have a bad pump.

Where is the torque converter clutch solenoid located on a 2000 Plymouth Neon?


I think it's right by the bell housing. There is a plug-in going to it. Raise the hood and look straight down to the transmission and you will see it.

Can I put a 98 Plymouth voyager transmission into a 2000 Plymouth voyager


The books say no. If all the electrical connections are the same, go for it but look at them closely. Also you will want to use the flexplate (flywheel) from the donor vehicle. It was right around 98 or 99 that Chrysler changed the bolt pattern on the torque converter. Chrysler motors are balanced by the torque converter, and this means the four converter bolt holes are not evenly spaced, and must be in the correct alignment to get all four bolts installed. one of the holes in the flywheel has flat sides. If you get that bolt in, and any other bolt in, the other two will go in. if you put that one in and the next one won't go, you need to remove that bolt and rotate the converter to the next hole. do yourself a favor and turn the converter the same way each time to avoid trying positions already tried.

did you hook up the flywheel to the torque converter? the clicking and grinding noise could be the trans is in park and the flywheel is going around, or the torque converter is bound up and not properly in the pump of the trans, and the clicking and grinding could be the parking pawl trying to stop and lock the trans.(this is what stops the car from rolling) I think its a torque converter alignment problem.

Where is the starter located in a 2000 plymouth neon


The starter is located under the car where the transmission and engine meet toward the front of the neon. The starter actually bolts up with face toward the transmission. You must get the car up on ramps or on a hoist to see the starter.

Removal:
  • Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
  • Raise vehicle on hoist.
  • Remove starter bolts.
  • Remove starter assembly.
  • Disengage latch and remove solenoid connector from starter assembly.
  • Remove battery positive connector from starter assembly.
  • It is not necessary to remove the alternator output lead from the connector.
Installation:
  • Clean corrosion/dirt from the cable and wire terminals before installing wiring to the solenoid.
  • Attach battery positive connector to starter.
  • Ensure alternator output connector is snapped into the battery positive connector.
  • Tighten the captive nut to 10 Nm (90 in. lbs.) .
  • CAUTION: It is critical that the alternator output terminal be connected to the battery positive terminal of the starter solenoid, for proper operation of the charging and cranking systems.
  • Install solenoid connector to starter.
  • Ensure that latch is fully engaged.
  • Position the starter face into transmission housing.
  • Start bottom mounting bolt and thread in until bolt is snug.
  • Attach ground cable to upper starter mounting bolt.
  • Ensure the proper starter alignment before tightening the starter mounting bolts to 54 Nm (40 ft. lbs.) torque.
  • Lower vehicle and connect negative battery cable.

You are suppose to put the torque converter on the bell housing first, then align the engine to the torque converter slot. I hope nothing has been damaged.

Need to know what the trouble code numbers are


P0743 is the Torque Converter Circuit Solenoid.The solenoid plug is on the front of the transmission and has a dark green/white and orange/black wire. The dark green/white should have 12V on it from fuse #10 when the ignition is on. The orange/black is a grounding wire from pin 79 of the powertrain controller which should only be grounded when the car is going over 45 mph or so. You could check that the wire is patent between the plug and the powertrain plug (near 0 ohms). The solenoid is a coil or wire so it would have a low, but non-0 resistance, maybe less than an ohm, but still not 0. To really test it you would need an impedence meter, but a good digital ohmmeter should show it to be slightly more resistance than is shown when you test the resistance of the meter leads themselves.If the resistance, the patency, and the 12V supply is all shown to be OK, then I would suspect the solenoid is not functing properly. If you are getting torque converter lock up when you accelerate slowly from 40 to 50 mph then it is working and the code is false. P1899 Park or neutral position switch stuck in park or gear. Recap: P0743 Torque converter clutch circuit faulty, P1899 Position switch to park and nutral stuck. Check the wire harness and look for any clips may be lose or disconnected and wires condition. Good luck and keep me posted. be glad to help
