Code 733 refers to transaxle, no third gear. The valve body is probably bad which they are notoris for...they are accessable from the top by removing the battery and the holder, but you need to know what you are doing since there are a couple of bolts on the valve body that should not be removed, and the torque sequence and torque which is about 137 inch pounds is very important. However, Saturn has the market on the part which cost around $800. I understand that it can be purchased from Canada at around $100...it would still need diagnost properly before going there. You can pick up a junk yard trany for around $700, and it will cost another $700 to have it put in unless you can do it your self.

Saturn sc2 problem


DTC P0732 sets when 2nd clutch still slips after the PCM has commanded high main line pressure
DTC P0734 sets when 4th clutch still slips after the PCM has commanded high main line pressure.
DTC P0733 sets when 3rd clutch still slips after the PCM has commanded high main line pressure.
The powertrain control module (PCM) uses the crankshaft position (CKP) sensor, input speed sensor (ISS) and output speed sensor (OSS) to determine engine speed, input shaft speed and output shaft speed. These sensor readings are used to determine the current gear ratio and RPM slip across the torque converter. The PCM uses this information from the sensors to determine if the commanded gear matches the actual gear. During normal driving conditions, the PCM will adapt main line pressure via the pressure control (PC) solenoid to prevent slipping and harsh shifts. Shift solenoid 2 is used to apply or release second gear clutch. The PCM controls 2nd gear by controlling the ground for shift solenoid 2. The PCM will turn the solenoid Off (open the driver circuit) when second gear is commanded On to apply 2nd clutch. Shift solenoid 2 is supplied ignition voltage from the fuel pump relay whenever the PCM commands the fuel pump relay On.
Do you know how to test main line pressure ? Also , with the valve body off air check clutch packs . Do you know how to do that ? How many miles on the trany ?

How is four wheel drive used on a 1999 durango


Hi Ralph.

I do not own a Durango, but have owned many 4WD vehicles and can offer tips for proper usage.

The "L" and "H" after the 4 and 2 stand for "Low" and "High" ranges. The 2 and 4 stand for the number of wheels that can receive power from the engine and transmission. Most 4WD vehicles only provide power to 1 wheel on each axle (front at rear for a total of just 2 wheels powered) at any given time (but for purposes of discussion, we'll call it 2WD & 4WD, as advertised).

Generally, "2WD" is only offered as a High range and is the same as a "normal" 2WD car or truck. I haven't seen a car or small truck that offers 2L (but I haven't seen a Durango - so I don't know), but generally 2WD traction can be increased easily enough by simply shifting the transmission to a lower gear (From "D" to "2" or "2" to "1", etc.).

4WD is designed to provide additional traction whenever 2WD isn't sufficient. This can be when surfaces are slippery such as sand, mud, snow and ice or, when pulling a heavy load such as a trailer and tires are not gripping the surface well. Shifting from 2WD to 4WD High will provide more traction at the same tire speed. Maximum power from the engine does not come at low RPMs, so in order to get more pulling power from the engine with out increasing speed (or spinning tires), the transmission should shifted into a lower gear. This is especially helpful when pulling a trailer up a wet incline, etc. If 4WD High in 1st gear is still allowing tires to spin or not providing enough pulling power, then shifting the transfer case from 4WD High to 4WD Low will allow the engine speed to increase (providing more power) without increasing the speed of the wheels (reducing the chances of spinning tires).

4WD should never be used while operating on dry pavement. Since tires wear at different rates, and turning left or right slows the inside tire and speeds up the outside tire when compared to the rear tires, a certain amount of slip is required. Wet surfaces provide this necessary amount of slip - as does sand, mud, snow, ice, dirt, gravel, etc. You should take the time to see how each selection of High and Low affects engine speed and vehicle speed and how the surface and any trailer further changes traction. With a little experimentation, you'll see how it works and be able to choose the right range with little thought.

Don't forget to have the transfer case & front differential fluids checked and changed as per the manual. Neglecting this simple service intervals can leave you stranded when you need 4WD and can be very expensive to repair.

I hope this helps & good luck!

My 1998 grand caravan is giving codes 733 and 734, what is happaning?


The codes are for a problem with the ratio between input and output in 3rd and 4th gears.
You'll need a shop to diagnose the transaxle.

How to fix problem codes 730-733 laredo 2009


There is no one fix works for all on these code. Also you have left out the letter and one number of the code I assume these are P0730 and P0733, if so read on.

P0730 CHRYSLER - Incorrect Gear RatioPossible causes- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Shift solenoids harness or connectors
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit

P0733 CHRYSLER - Gear Ratio Error In Third GearPossible causes- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit

The transmission of my A4 2.4 Audi does not shift. I replaced the gearbox speed sensor. However, I experienced the same symptoms after 30 miles driving. Please your assistance is highly appreciated.


Make sure you have sufficient gear oil (ATF) in the transmission, an Auto box uses oil pressure to shift gears. Often after the trasnsission has been removed and re fitted it will work out all the air within the first test drive thus the oil level drops too low to shift gears.

I have a 1992 Ford Bronco and it began to hesitate tonight while driving. I put the gear in low and now I dont know how to get the truck back into the correct gear. Im not familiar with the floor gears


look at the driver side visor the shift pattern is printed there. it should be also on the shift lever itself . I think 2 wheel high is all the way forward then back 1 is neutral back 1 more is 4w low and all the way back is 4w high

Ford transmission 86 4wd will not shift to high gear


It is hard to say from your description what the problem is ... could be linkage issue ... could be trans is going as is with the other poster ...
Losing overdrive. Clutches (bands/clutches) have had it. Be careful driving without that top gear ... doing too high a speed without the appropriate gear causes extra stress on your engine that could accelerate further problems. Try to do only driving at a low enough speed that the top gear is not missed ... will help the vehical last as long as possible.
