Automatic transmission on 1996 Plymouth Voyager won't shift

Works fine one day, then the next day won't shift out of first gear, then works fine again. Had some luck turning it off and restarting. Transmission fluid level was fine, changed the transmission fluid and filter. Seems like an electronic problem. It has 193,000 miles on it; it's a 4-cylinder.We'd like to keep it if it's a cheap fix but it's not worth putting in a new transmission.

Doesn't cost much, if anything for a proper diagnosis at a transmission repair place or dealer, and then a quote must be presented, for you to decide yes or no. may well be worth it in the long run. Have you tried retrieving trouble codes by cycling key, on, off, on, off, on, and leaving on,(not start) counting flashes of check engine light? For example: 2 flashes, pause, 2 more flashes is code 22. 3 flashes, pause, 3 more is code 33 ...etc.

SOURCE: 1998 Plymouth grand voyager ignition won't turn

I have had this happen on my 98 Voyager. Just have a new key cut. This new key will sometimes cure the problem. The older keys get worn out and won't unlock the ignition. Try this before a much more expensive and time consuming change of the ignition.

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.

1996 Plymouth Voyager starts in 2nd gear and never shifts regardless of how much gas I give it. The RPMs race up, but it never shifts. It is an automatic transmission with a 3.3L engine. Mechanic told me...


The valve body is a part roughly the size of a 8 X 11 piece of paper, only about 4 inches thick.
It is made of aluminum, and is really filled with lots of holes and passageways.
It is up inside your transmission oil pan.
As you drive, transmission oil is supposed to circulate inside this, and change your gears as you drive down the road.
These do fail occasionally, and are expensive to replace, often costing 1,000 to 3,000 to change, as most shops will overhaul your whole transmission in the process.
If you will type in " Ebay motors", and then type in "Plymouth valve body", you can see a picture of one.
Be blessed.

You have a failure in the transmission or the shift solenoids or wiring to them or the TCM. I would get the Transmission Control Module (TCM) tested for fault codes first. Did you have a check engine light come on?

TRANSMISSION STICKS SHIFTING GEARS


Modern transmissions require regular ATF automatic transmission fluid changes. Of ten the interval is around every 36,000 miles. I recommend changing the ATF and see if the condition improves. If the ATF is really dirty drive the vehicle for 1000 to 2000 miles and change it again. I always start with the cheapest fixes first. Hope this helps.

1996 Plymouth voyager reverse lights not working, transmission replaced this week and they claimed the reverse lights have nothing to do with reverse lights. owners manual does not show a fuse for back up...


They are full of baloney. Ther's a switch underneath the shift lever that engages when you shiht into reverse. The mechanic probably loosened it when reconnecting the shift linkage to the new tranny.

Thay may have knocked the switch out of position, which would cause the lights to go on in some other gear than reverse. That would be the first thing I check.

Good luck !

Won't shift into gear plymouth voyager


Hi the Transmission control module is having communication issues with the sitting solenoids that actually preform the shifting once you initiate it by using the in car stick. these solenoids are inside of the transmission pan and you will need to replace them.

Please rate and god bless:)

1991 3.3L Plymouth Voyager, Transmission temp sticks in first.


John, this sounds like a valve hanging up in the valve body. The car shifts when the govenor pressure overcomes throttle valve pressure in this valve body.

What is the condition of the fluid? Is it at all dark or grey, does it smell burnt? It should be a nice light pink. If not, have the fluild and filter for the trans changed. This may take care of the problem.

If the oil is really burnt, you are at the end of the life of the clutches and you are looking at a complete trans rebuild. If the oil is ok, a trans shop should be able to take just the valve body down, clean it and eliminate the problem without overhauling the entire transmission

good luck

96 plymouth voyager no shift


you say the fluid looks good... that's great.
now next time your out drive for about ten good minuetes long enough for the transmission to get nice and warm and then pull over to nice level ground and with the vehicle in park check the fluid again. it's kind of hard to read because it always has a lot of bubbles on it and stuff. but it may be low on fluid.. good-luck ray
