Question about 1996 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

Shifts one moment not the next

My car has been messing up on shifting on minute it'll be fine the next it'll stop shifting won't even do it once, I'll shut it off for a few then start it and it'll be fine for a few but when it first started doing it when it started working again it did for a few days now it's everytime I drive it it'll mess up within a few minutes or so. I was told that it's probably our trans module, is that what you think?

I have a 2007 rav 4 the engine light will flash and the rav feels rough the engine or trans won't shift then it stops and works fine


The flashing check engine light means there is a serious problem with the performance of the engine. You need to get the computer scanned for trouble codes next.

97 cavalier starts and runs ok from a cold start after a few minutes of warm up it starts to run rough and miss. If i try to drive it it will start out ok but won't shift automaticly but shifts fine m


Sounds like possibly more than on problem, crankshaft position sensor, or ignition module likely on starting prob which maybe affecting shifting due to hard code in ecm, or shift prob could be shift solenoid in valve body of transmission. Both parts readily available from local parts store

Why does my transmission shudder at a stop and why does it have trouble shifting up?


A waste of time flushing the transmission fluid, the fluid lasts for the life of the vehicle and beyond!
I suspect oil pressure issues if electronic or slipping clutches if mechanical.
Take it in for service.

Your torque converter lock up is defective, it is not turning off. I would replace the torque converter lock up solenoid first and change the fluid and filter, if that is not the fix the transmission will need to come out for rebuilding and the torque converter replaced most likely..

This does sound electrical, it may be a sensor problem in the trany thats shorting or a selonoid that bad and sticking, the only problem is a scan tool will be needed so it can be hooked up and the readings watched as it messes up and then remove the valve body to test them, this sounds like its a bad converter clutch lockup selonoid but without doing tests and checking things its hard to say. the best way to do this is to have a trany shop test it, good day.

Trans shifts very hard after 5 minutes of stop and go traffic


A reason for hard shifting could be a problem with many things with various degrees of seriousness. It could be your ATF( automatic transmission fluid) is low or broken down and old. This would cause the hardness and the reason for stop and go traffic effecting it. Another possibility is your transmission is just shot, and the timing gears inside are worn and not properly shifting at the correct RPM causing a **** during shifting.

Some possibilties, not all!
