Location of modulator on 97 jeep grand cheereekee


It's called a governor. It is a solenoid inside the transmission. Pull the pan, it is on the passenger side. You will see 2 plugs, one is the governor solenoid, the other is the pressure sensor. I recommend you replace both.

Is the transmission shift solenoid inside the transmission located on the outside. Do i have to drop the transmission to replace it


Inside, behind the side cover on the drivers side &
not easy to get off while trans is in the car

It may come off or sub frame can be lowered to get
the cover off

Not any easy job,so you better diagnose it correctly

Got a 2000 dodge caravan. My shift solenoid is getting pretty close to not workin, and needs a seal also. I had it looked at and was told it would be $800 at the least. I've been told the auto place...


Hi there,

The orientation of your transmission case (direction of the trans case cover) will determine if the trans can be worked on whilst still in the car, or whether it needs to be removed,.

If the transmission cover (which looks like an engine SUMP cover) is facing the ground, then the trans can be easily serviced while still in the car.

Behind the trans cover is what is called the Valve Body - this houses the critical components and usually the solenoids are all in there too.

Providing your vehicle's fault codes have been correctly extracted and have identified the correct solenoid, it will involve dismantling the trans cover & valve body to gain access to the solenoids.

I recommend you phone around various transmission specialists (usually a Dodge franchise would do this quicker) and ask them to quote you how much for:

1) cost of solenoid
2) cost of labour (ie how many hours)

I imagine the Labour cost is what where most of this expense is coming from, so I recommend you choose someone who has a working knowledge of the Dodge Caravan transmission.

Allowing someone who is unfamiliar with this model, to work on your vehicle, could end up costing you more labour than it should.

Cheers,

2000 Stratus will not shift out of second


Indications are that the transmission has some serious issues. You may want to call a reputable local transmission shop and explain the situation, including the codes. They can give you your options. But I suspect you need the transmission rebuilt or replaced.

2005 chevymonte carlo shifting hard intermittently


my son had the same problem on his 2003,i checked with a friend at a trans shop and he told me it has two senors in the trans (inside the cover on the drivers side ) and would cost $600.00 to $700.00 to fix,my son has a repair manual,so we looked it up,we bought the two shift senors cost approx, $100.00, thinking an easy fix,not at all, first we had to jack the car body up and drain the trany fluid, disconect everything,CV axel then we had to drop the engine and trans cradle down to gain acess to remove the side cover, the sensors took less than 5 min.to replace after we got the cover off, after about 8 hours of work,start to finish we replaced the two sensors and that fixed the problem,trans runs like new,this problem seems to exist in these transmissions my friend says,if you have some friends that know how to work on cars,you can save yourself alot of money, BEWARE if you let this problem continue you will blow your trans,hope this helps.

The trans is a 4T65E. All the solenoids are inside the side cover. You have to pull the axel and drop the trans on the driver side down to get it off. The pressure control solenoid is the biggest one inside and is round like a drum.

Hope this helps

Clutch 'pops' straight to the floor in my 93 300zx


The slave cylinder is replaced simply by removing 2 14mm or 12m nuts on the bottom side of the trans. There is no need for transmission removal.

Remember to point out to the shops that there are two bleeding points for the clutch. On the slave cylinder itself and under the hood on the passenger side. Its right behind the windshield washer fluid fill spot. Sometimes the bleeder is covered with a black cover.

Transmission has to be manually down shifted at stops


I have a similar issue with my vehicle. I either have to shift to neutral or it stalls. The advice I received was to unplug the 4 prong connector at the front of the transmission. What truly is the problem, as I was told, it the overdrive lockup solinoid inside the trans cover. I looked at replacing it and it looks like a tough job to do, lots of brackets to remove to remove the cover. Looks like the solinoid is on top of the trans, but getting to it is another story. Good luck.

Transmission 2003 saturn vue 4cyh cvt trans


If you are below 100 psi then you have a major leak inside the transmission. These will read upwards of 700 psi and require a special gauge to check line pressure. As far as fixing this there are limited parts available for this transmission and a replacement unit is big bucks. Take the car to your saturn dealer and see what they will do. These have a 5 year 75,000 miles warranty for the transmission, and most of them are covering up to and past 100,000 miles for customer satisfaction. If you dont know much or anything about this transmission do not attempt to repair it. Let the trained professional tech at saturn take care of this.
