You did not mention if you have checked the fluid..
This could be caused by a few things..
1 - Incorrect fluid level..
2 - The modulator might have issues.. The modulator is what tells the trani when to **** and is controlled either electronically or by vacuum pressure or both..
3 - The electronics inside the trani and out side could be failing..

The first thing that should be done - is get fluid level right if needed..
Check the fluid while it is running in park and good and warm..
Be careful not to over fill..

Then - it is likely to be most efficient to get it to a trani shop..
What is happening to the trani could possibly cause costly damage to the trani.. Get it before it gets you..
Allot of trani shops will give you a free estimate..

Have a great day !

I have a 2001 Volvo v70 cross country AWD I added tranny fluid 4 qts but now tranny slips after going a couple miles what can I do to fix..


Four qts of tranny fluid is a lot if u didn't overfill it? About all you can try is a bottle of Transmedic or Transx type fluid from auto parts store. If that doesn't break sticking clutch plates loose you will have to replace the transmission or have it rebuilt.

Transmisssion shift and cruise controll problem I have a '98 Chrysler T&C AWD. I am experiencing periodiac drive off problem where the ****** seems to be stuck in 1st gear. I pull over to the curb...


Yes, it is the TCM (transaxle control module). It sells for a little over $100.00 and is easy to replace; however, you have to retrain the transmission to shift again. You send the ****** to school by driving it.

2001 chrysler town country limited. Check engine light is on with a code P740. transmission shifts very well .What is up with this code and what needs to be replaced? also the ac is cold on the passenger...


P0740 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Malfunction, it could be a sensor starting to go bad, have the code cleared and see if it happens again, have you ever had your transmission fluid replaced, (do not have it flushed) might want to do that as a Preventive Maintenance item.

A/C problem could be the A/C controls on the dash are not working properly, the doors inside the dash are not closing completely, letting warm blended air in on the driver's side.

Transmission slipping


do u have any transmission trouble codes? u should if the OD light is flashing, the light flashes to alert u that a electronic malfunction is occurring in the trans controls, u may just have a bad trans connector or a shift solenoid starting fail due to a shorted field closing coil.

Fault code


The information I can find on this shows a code 15, not 16. It shows it as a problem with the #1 shift solenoid or it's harness. Causing different internal transmission concerns. The book I found shows no code 16,this could be a miss print. Either way, this is a concern that appears to be an internal trans. problem.Good luck.
