Transmission Bands are adjusted when you rebuild a trans

They do not wear enough to need adjustment

Two things happen

If you turn the screw the wrong way, parts fall inside the trans
& you can't get it back together

Next-- if you need to adjust the band or bands, it is time for a rebuild, as many many parts are worn, long before the slightest band wear.

Likely it's better to leave the bands alone. The servos have plenty of travel and unless it was "hammering" into gear (from excessive clearance there) likely adjusting them won't do much. Pan rail is stamped pretty deep...carb cleaner wont clean it up enough to read?
Replacing the filter may help if it's plugged up. If not, don't bother replacing it...problem is internal and filter won't change much of anything.
You can only partially replace the fluid because the converter has no drain. Therefore, use cheap oil and a container of lucas conditioner. If it helps, do the change again at 3,000 miles and use a higher quality fluid along with another lucas.
If you can't get the unit #, buy both filter kits and make note of which is for what transmission. Return the unused one.

What all do i need to adjust transmission bands in 2001 dodge dakota


Bands are adjusted when you build a transmission

You do not need to adjust

The amount of band thickness & wear, is so small,
that the trans is shot, long before you have any wear
that needs to be adjusted

If you turn the screw the wrong way, the band falls off at
the ends & you can't reach in there to replace it & the unit
has to come out & apart

You will see no difference if you brought that band down tight
on the drum & then loosened it the correct number of turns

The servo will apply the band & there is no reasons for a delay

Your 2001 is 13 years or more old

If the fluid has not been changed every 2 or 3 years
since new,it is about to expire

1988 ford van transmission suddenly slipping


Check your fluid level. Then for physically taking action, some models have adjustable transmission bands inside the trans. These may be reached inside the trans when changing the screen filters or cleaning them. Some models have external adjusters. Typically involving tightening the bands to a certain torque amount and then backing off the adjuster a specified number of turns.

There are some chemical additives of questionable value claiming to fix these problems.

I would go to 3 places for estimates. Some transmissions have no adjustments and your trans may be on its last leg. Used transmissions out of a wreck or a Rebuild may be options.

1997 Dodge Caravan Sport. I was driving normal then it quit pulling. Now have 3 forward gears no more than 8 miles an hour. No reverse. Dropped trans pan small metal on magnet.Fluid looked ok. Changed...


The correct fluid to put in a 1997 van is (ATF-3). Sounds like you need to make adjustment on both the forward and reverse bands of the transmission to correct your problem. The kickdown band (front) forward is located at the top (outside) of the transaxle near the front. To adjust the band,loosen the lock nut approximately 5 turns. With the lock nut loose the adjusting screw should turn freely in case. Tighten the adjustment screw with an inch lb. torque wrench to 72 in-lbs. Then back the screw out 2 1/4 turns, hold the screw in place and tighten the lock nut to 35 ft-lbs. Then after removeing the transmission pan and filter the low-reverse band is located next to the valve body. Loosen the lock nut 5 turns so the adjustment screw is free. Turn the adjustment screw in to 41 in-lbs, then back the screw out 3 1/2 turns. Hold the adjustment screw and tighten the lock nut 10 ft-lbs. Install transmission pan/with gasket and refill transaxle to proper level. Test drive van. Be safe and block the rear wheels before you raise the van and try to work under it. Hope this will help you.

What are the transmission band adjustment for a 1995 v6 3.0 dodge caravan


The proper fluid for that Tranamiaaion is Mopar ATF Plus 3 Type 7176. I recommend using it as I have found it does make a difference.

LOW-REVERSE BAND:
  1. Loosen, then back off lock-nut approximately five turns.
  2. Tighten adjusting screw to 41 in.lb.
  3. Back adjusting screw off 3½ turns, then tighten lock-nut to specifications
KICK DOWN BAND
The kick down band adjusting screw is located on the left side, top front of the trans-axle case.
  1. Loosen lock-nut and back off nut approximately five turns. Ensure adjusting screw turns freely in the trans-axle case.
  2. Using tool No. C-3880-A and adapter tool No. C-3705 , or equivalents, tighten band adjusting screw to72 in.lb.
  3. Back adjusting screw off 2¼ turns, then holding screw in position, tighten lock-nut to specifications.
Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any other questions you may have.
