Tranny Problems? When I am driving and come to a stop in traffic with the car in drive, the transmission makes a little bump. This only happens after driving for a while, when the car is cold it doesn't happen. I have already Flushed the Tranny and Added an external tranny cooler, the problem still exists

Dodge stratus transmission

find a good transmission garage, but before that check atf level, cable going to shifter etc, if no fault found prepare for the worse $$$$, sorry man your not the only one mine gave at 70000miles, id rather have it fixed by a good tranny shop than buy a used or new tranny. it will be replaced with modefied parts, makers study this problems and modify the parts make them better. compare price of repair and having a new one, remember you still have to pay labor replacing your tranny, tranny shops usually give 5 years warranty. remanufactured tranny i would suggest but first compare price with new.

Only thing that pops into my mind is vacuum. Make sure the hoses are hooked up to the tranny, and make sure all your lines are hooked up on the engine. If you hear a hissing under the hood when it's running, that will be a leaking vac line, and could be the cause of the tranny problems. Be sure not to start out in drive if until you get it figured out or you will smoke the tranny for sure. Start in first or second and then bump it up as you speed up. Let me know how you make out.

The transmission on my 3800 motor no longer has drive and over drive,, what has stopped working?

First check the tranny fluid level. If its good, its probably black in color. They are prone to internal tranny problems. It sounds like the forward clutch assembly in the tranny has gone. Quite often its the reaction clutch assembly, but with that it affects 3rd and reverse, it should still move forward. 4T60 transmission.

I have 1995 carmy transmission slip then if i let it sit about 10 min it will drive 4 a little while then stop

you may be having problems withthe transmission filter been clogged, i belive you never replaced it on its service life, any way maybe the tranny all ready suffered but try changing the transmission fluid and filter, its done by taking off the transmission carter itwould give you direct acces to the filter, in most cases the problem you present happens becouse the pump starts sucking oil from the cartet and some debries clog the filter so there is no pressure at the pump, converter and valve body so the car sleeps and then it stops, you turn it of for a while the garbage falls of the filter and when you startagain it works for a while

If there is substantial change going from park or neutral to drive, then the transmission is maladjusted. I could see this also causing the tranny to get hot if creeping along in traffic with frequent stops.
I'd check with your local BBB to find a reputable transmission shop so you can somewhat believe their assessment.

Slippy Tranny

Had the same problem. had the soiniod body changedbeginning of winter. Tranny shift Smoother but problem can back the next spring but less often then before.

Noticed that it was happening on hot day and after driving no more than an hour. Noticed that it was happening also in stop and go traffic.

Sometimes just putting the Tranny at Park and stopping the engine on a RED light fixes the problem.

I haven't gone back to the Tranny Shop.

VSS (vehicle speed sensor) Tells the PCM (computer) the speed of the vehicle so the PCM can make the proper information to the TCM (transmission control module) to shift.
YOU are goin gto need a scan tool NOt a code reader to monitor the VSS to see what it is putting out for speed when the car is moving But I believe you need a VSS but do not not Go out and buy one until you have had it tested , and can positively confrim it is bad first. Please rate this a fixya if you find this advice helpful, Thanks Randy
