Question about Cars & Trucks
Have 06 lincon zephyr ! some times shifts hard prematurely at low speeds! dealer says needs new trans and that updating pcm/tcm software would not help! seems crazy that o6 with only 80k on it can not be fixed any ideas?
Crazy as it sounds a hard shift is a good sign that you have a good transmission. i don't know this particular transmission but weather it is controled buy manual valves or a computer i believe the problem will be with that part of its control, a restrictive valve or stopped up modular.

Testimonial: "thanks tom. yeah it runs shifts fine under hard acceleration! does not leak or heat up but once in a while under normal driving at lower speeds it makes a nasty bang! not at shift points!"

replace the input speed sensor to transmission and the wiring pigtail all are available at your chrysler dealer take your vehicle registration in to the parts counter so they have your vin # to get the right part and it is the front of trans by fluid linres to radiator.

I too have a 2002 dodge Intrepid, after 10 minutes of driving the car, when i make a stop it won't shift properly, in order to make it shift, i have to turn the ignition off and back up again!
If anyone can help me locate the TCM that would be great.
I'm ready to drive it off a cliff
Thanks in advance!

Sounds like you may have fried the tcm I would go to car-parts.com and get a good used one. You could check and see if there is any fuses that you blew out that control the tcm if you have a manual for the car you can look at a wiring diagram and find out what fuses are associated with the tcm if not check them all.

This sounds as if the input and output speed sensors may be having an issue. If you are putting a used tcm in it will have been powered down and basically reset to it's defaults.Would completely disconnect the battery and hold the cable ends together this will force a hard reset of the tcm and ecm which will return all adaptives to the factory presets.When started it may run very poorly for a few minutes until it relearns. You then should be able to drive it and it will continue it's adaptive learning curve.
