Question about 2001 Chrysler Town & Country

Open Question

Transmission does not shift into drive some times.....

My T & C is starting to have a shifting problem. Some times it will shift into drive and some times it will not. The RPM's go high and you can tell that it did not go into drive. This van does not have overdrive. It's a 2001 V-6 3.3L. I have about 125,000 miles on the van. Could it be a sensor? I keep the transmission changed ever 65,000 miles. The tranny oil looks and smells good.

Thanks,
Mike

SOURCE: Transmission woes.

What's happening is the trans. computer is detecting something wrong. It puts itself into "limp in" mode. Most of the time a sensor is acting up. Go and have you computer (trans.) scanned so you know which sensor is going bad. This is a very common occurrance with all chrysler products. Don't go to Autozone for the scan. Your best bet is to go to a transmission shop.

But I am afraid I can't tell you want all these codes mean for your car. It was probably not related to the change in fluid that was performed. However, it is serious and should not be driven until fixed. Risk of total destruction of the transmission is too great. I would assume the symptoms are so diverse that it may be a bad transmission control module. Which is about $200, and fairly easy to replace:

But there are other possibilities, such as a bad relief valve could be letting main pressure drop too low.
This is the type of thing which does require an expert and can't easily be done remotely.

This sounds as if the input and output speed sensors may be having an issue. If you are putting a used tcm in it will have been powered down and basically reset to it's defaults.Would completely disconnect the battery and hold the cable ends together this will force a hard reset of the tcm and ecm which will return all adaptives to the factory presets.When started it may run very poorly for a few minutes until it relearns. You then should be able to drive it and it will continue it's adaptive learning curve.

1998 land rover discovery transmission makes loud banging noise when shifting from pari to drive?


Tons of possibilities here (transmission, differential, motor mounts, transmission mounts....), so I'll ask some debug questions to help narrow it down. Does it make the noise when shifting into reverse? Also, does it make the noise only when shifting from park, or also when shifting from neutral (into drive or into reverse)? Did the noise start as an occasional, softer noise and get worse over time, or did it start suddenly? Does the vehicle lurch at the same time as the noise? What happens when you go from Reverse to Drive, or vice versa? Has any work been done recently (brakes, tires, alignment, suspension, transmission)?

2001 toyota corolla when driving takes to long to shift gear could that be the motor timing, the idle sensor or what


Timing is controlled by the cars computer

Your asking about shifting issues, that is not
anything to do with idle control

A transmission never shifts at the same rpm or
speed twice

It depends on your input to the gas pedal & other
inputs

Have a trans shop or repair shop drive it & go along
for the ride to explain the issue

My 1995 nissan quest overdrive light comes on when i start it and it wont go in drive but will 2nd gear, sometime on can turn the van off and restart and it will go in drive and shift ok but it shifts...


Sounds like the sensor for first gear.
The transmission comes with a shift sensor for each shift: if 4 shift, 4 sensor (including reverse).
Have somebody check the sensors and the cpu for the tranny. They go hand to hand.

Manually shift thru all gears up & down the scale. Try adding Motorcraft Additive Friction Modifier, available from Ford parts dept. This REALLY STINKS!!! Don't get any on you. Pour into trans fluid. Drive a few miles shifting manually thruthe gears, then do a normal start stop drive several times. This will luburcate trans, normally used for differential but has worked in automatic transmissions of all makes for years. Otherwise mechanical problem for transmission repair facility.

Wont shift into drive


Have you changed the fluid & filter lately? Start there, much cheaper fix than anything else.
