My 2007 Chysler Pacifica engine light comes on and the scanner showed a code PO83B what does that mean?

Was curious and found a little info.
P083B Transmission Fluid Pressure Sensor / Switch G Circuit Range Performance
Typically the causes for this code to set are:
Open in the signal circuit to the TFPS sensor - possible
Short to voltage in the signal circuit to the TFPS sensor - possible
Short to ground in the signal circuit to the TFPS sensor - possible
Failed TFPS Sensor - likely
Internal mechanical transmission issue - possible
Failed PCM - unlikely (programming required after replacement)
The Transmission Fluid Pressure Sensor/Switch (TFPS) is usually found attached to the side of the valve body inside the transmission, although sometimes it may be found screwed into the side of the transmission case/body itself.
P083B is typically an electrical circuit (TFPS sensor circuit) issue, although as previously stated this code may also be set due to mechanical issues (internal leaks, cracked or missing check balls in the valve body, low system operating pressure/main line pressure, stuck valve in the valve body). This cannot be overlooked in the troubleshooting stage, especially when dealing with an intermittent problem.

Those are valve body check balls and they must be put back in the proper place for the transmission to function properly. Try not to panic. If you look closely at the passages in the valve body, you will probably notice that some of the them have small indentations beside them. If you find passages with this difference in the same number as the check balls, then install them and then install the valve body by lifting it straight up and carefully aligning it with the transmission housing before making contact with it. Good luck with your effort. I hope this information has been helpful and thank you for trying

A904 torqueflite automatic transmission valvebody ballbearing locations? I DROPPED ONE and don't know were it goes. please HELP

Exchange it. If you don't know where is goes, then you probably did not know how important it is to not contaminate the valve body. For example, you can't even use a cloth shop towel. It leave invisible lint. I doubt it would be any good already. A valve body is not normally taken apart on a transmission overhaul, and an exchange is always recommended.
They are not expensive. This racing parts link has them for less than $200.

Transmition shifting hard

this is a common problem with the 4l60e transmission,
you need to have the system scaneed for codes, my guess is you will get a p1870 code,
this means internal slippage detected.

the most likely cause is a valve body malfunction, here is what happend.

the internal transmission line pressure is adjusted by the EPC solenoid, this solenoid is controlled by PWM "pulse with modulation" which simply means that the solenoid is turned on and of many times a second, the longer the on time the lower the pressure the longer the off time the higher the pressure, this on off on off rythem creates a fluid pressure pulse in the system.

now when your on the highway at cruising speed the transmission goes into lock up operation, the tcc valve is in the valve body, the valve is a high strength metal valve and the valve body is constructed of aluminum, as the tcc valve is acted upon by the pulsed high pressure fluid it will somewhat flutter in its aluminum bore and over time will damage the valve bore causing the lockup to slip a little bit.

the pcm detects the slippage, sets the check engine light and in an attempt to preserve the transmission the EPC is commaned full off which in turn puts the transmission at max line pressure and now you have an extremly harsh 1-2 shift.

have the valve body replaced or allow a transmission shop to remove the valve body **** the tcc valve bore and intall an updated valve.

ps. it will not hurt the transmission if continue to drive it.

I have a 1999 Ram B 1500 Van, auto transmission, 5.9 L engine.
Same problem, trans hesitates in 2-3 upshift, sometimes 1-2
to 2-3 upshift. Posts trouble code P1756 - Transmission Govenor pressure too low at below 15 to 20 Psi. Transmission pump shot or valve body leak stops trans from reaching proper pressure to shift, which is minimum 15 Psi.
Either trans is leaking in valve body, valve is stuck, shift solenoid on valve body is sticking, or pump is shot.

Delay engagement of transmission

I would get the auto transmission "power flushed"; that will remove all of the dirty oil and any contaminents. That is the first thing to do, and usually works pretty good. Let us know how it turns out., Thanks.
