Question about 1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager

1999 Grand Voyager transmission not shifting into high gear

When car gets to about 40 mph,
trans will not shift( no overdrive) into high gear,rpms at about 3000+.
Adjusting throttle will not help tranny to shift. At aprox 40 mph I
manually shift into neutral shut off ignition for 2 - 3 seconds and then restart engine and the trans will then shift correctly for rest of the outing
including full stop at a red light, all the way back to full speed. Shut the car off, go into a store, come back out and whole problem starts over.
I replaced trans fluid and filter.

Probably a solenoid/loose connection/bad wire, but as with the answer above, get it checked now before you end up replacing the whole thing.

Do yourself a favor & get it scanned at transmission shop, or dealer & fixed as needed,(within reason) . Delaying it could cost lots of money. A rebuilt is about $1500-$2000.

Why wont my 97 plymouth grand voyager shift into fourth gear at 40 mph?


Sticking valves. When is the last time you had the transmission serviced? Since it will shift when cold, I would suspect a valve body issue.

Transmission not shifting into 4th gear


Dirty Shift Solenoids

Have to Google your trans unit or model
& see what the inside looks like, as far as
shift control items go

It may not be going into converter lock-up
either,that is some high rpm that will overheat it
also & ruin it for good

2004 nissan frontier 4cylinder automatic transmission shifts in to overdrive too soon


An expert at a shop ought to look at this---could be a shift module or electronic or mechanical problem.

It might also be a sign something bad is about to happen.

Electronic or mechanical issue?

Shift letters for a 1992 chevy 2500. what does each mean?


The D inside of an O is for overdrive. It is an automatic overdrive transmission. There isn't an overdrive button on it. If you want to disable the overdrive you have to shift down a gear.

You have an internal pressure leak and will likely need a new tranny,sorry but you can take it to a transmission shop to confirm.

The rpms are too high, is this normal when driving 70 mph and rpms are at 2500


if you had 4:10 gears in the rear axle maybe. but i,d say your over drive is out. your truck should be running at about 2100 rpms or a little less at 70.

Odd shifting 99 jeep grand cherokee


A common problem with most overdrive units.Overdrive should only be used above 40 mph. With the mileage odds are that you need to have transmission looked at professionally.It maybe time to consider rebuilding it.I do not see a trans service of being a benefit.

I have a playmouth grand voyager 1999 3L,my transmission will not shift up in gear.On drive or reverse it goes well but will not shift.I think it could be an electrique problem,cause the transmission looks...


Your trans is stuck in safe mode, you are only using 2nd gear, this means it is not shifting but staying at a gear so you will not damage the trans. This is an electrical setting , however usually comes from the computer receiving bad information , rough shift, however it can be reset. Remove the positive battery cable for 30 minutes then see if it shifts, also check your fluid level, it can go into safe mode from low fluid if you made a turn and the trans slipped from low fluid . If your trans goes back into safe mode again have it checked, most important, do not drive over 45 mph or allow your rpms to raise over 3 , I have seen many motor problems that spawned from this type of trans problem, if not corrected.

Good Luck
