Question about 1995 Chrysler LeBaron

1 Answer

Why is it not shifting???

My '95 Chrysler lebaron has recently started not wanting to shift into its upper gears I will hit 45-50 at max and stay there... I have pulled it over numerous time turned it off and restarted it, it still has not fixed itself. It lightly jerks like it wants to go into the next gear but something is stopping it. I don't know what is causing it to stay in the first gear and why it is not shifting over. I appreciate any and all opinions and advice.

SOURCE: gear shift difficulty moving/gear shift stuck in 1st gear

sounds like your shift cable was freezing up and finally snapped. check the trans shifter side and see if you can move it if so then this is problem. your car runs a cable not rods. if you pop the center console out you will get a better view there is one or two screws at back of console in cupholders and it should come out

SOURCE: Transmission jerks

One possibility is that the speed sensor is going out. When that happens the computer gets bad information and thus makes bad decisions. When the car goes into 2nd all of the solenoids are actually off. That is so if there is some kind of problem the transmission gets no power, then it still has P, R, N, 2nd. It would be kind of weird, maybe, to see only the 1-2 shift being affected but I can't really think of anything else that could cause that kind of problem.

Sounds like the shift cable is coming apart inside. You will need to disconnect it at both ends and make sure it slides easily. if not, change it. If you are good with mechanical things and have a bit of patience it's not too hard. If not let a shop do it.

Sorry but if your reverse is having trouble you will probably have to replace or rebuild tranny like me. Otherwise try new filter and fluid first.

I have a 04 voyager 2.8 and the auto box wont change above second- only happened since new battery , any ideas


Okay you will need to program the shift points again this is normal when battery voltage is lost, you will need to shift yourself and try to get it to shift when you want it to, what you do is remove the negitive battery terminal for 10 mins, then connect it back, start the van when you take off the shifter must be in low gear try to go slow until you have a straight away then accel and shift gears up until you hit the last drive gear make sure to shift as it use to or as close, dont rev to high before shifting as you shift up the computer stores the info and thats the way it will shift if you make a mistake unhook batttery again and try it again. i cant rememeber the exact shift points but i think you will know as its the van you drive, doesnt have to be perfect, for example start off in low and when you hit 15mph shift up a gear then ithink at 25 shift up and then 35 or 40mph shift and so on, you dont want the engine to rev to high between shifts it should be smooth but you you feel it a bit, hope this is helpful. let me know the out come, i do this all the time, dodge ,chrysler cars and vans. good day.

Transmission will get stuck in a gear and wont up shift to the next gear or it will constantly up shift and down shift


suggest you check for a vacum line off that goes to the transmission modulator valve, which controls the shifting in transmission.or may possibly just be a bad modulator valve on the side of the transmission. 1st check for a vacum line off, with engine running do you hear a whistling or air sucking sound on top or rear of motor? if so, follow that sound to a hose or small black hose thats off.if you are driving the car and start off in low drive and can manually shift to upper gears with no problems,your problem is either a vacum line off, or it's a bad modulator valve on the transmission. hope this helps!!!

94 Chrysler Concorde Tranny Problems


Have your transmission oil filter changed;
it is located under the transmission pan
The oil is what makes the transmission shift
When you shut off the engine it stops the transmission pump then when you start up again the transmission shifts until the filter clogs again

Shifting


It may be time for a tranny service. They will change the filter, fluid, etc, and check it out. Better than having to buy another tranny if this one has a fixible problem.
