The solenoid blocks are known to leak. You will need to access this under the hood. The cooling lines well need removed from the trans, disconnect the input speed sensor, and remove it using a 1" deepwell socket. Remove the plug on the solenoid block, using an 8mm socket. You will see 3 tenmm bolts on the top of the Sol block. Remove these bolts, then gently pry the sol block off the trans. Using a scraper, remove all old gasket material from the trans case, be careful not to damage it, then thoroughly clean the mounting surface. Install the new Sol Block, with a new gasket, and torque to factory specs, re-install the input speed sensor (torque to spec), install the cooling lines, and reconnect the Sol Block 8mm screw, be sure to TORQUE all to factory spec, failure to do this could result in you damaging the new Sol block, or trans.Make sure to check the fluid level after the repair is complete, and you should have the TCM reset as well. It is fairly labor intensive, and for a first-timer, it will probably take you about 2-3 hrs to do this, provided you have the proper tools. Good luck.

It is the solenoid pack. they usually get small cracks in them. replace it, the new part should come with a new gasket too. very common, I used to change these all the time when i worked in a chrysler dealer

    very easy to replace. just remove the cover, unplug it and remove all the bolts. the new part from chrysler should have a sheet in the box with the torque specs if i remember correctly

Should be located close to the oil filter. It will screw in like a spark plug. It has a harness plug. Easy to change, save yourself $70 in labor. You will need a fairly large wrench to remove

2004 chrysler sebring transmission was leaking but now has stop


Keep a close eye on the level, and watch for drops in driveway etc. Even try placing something under the transmission area if you have to, like cardboard or plywood. Good chance it didn't cure itself, but stranger things have happened I guess. Hope you used Mopar transmission oil to re-fill it. believe it or not, I don't work for Chrysler but have heard many a story about chrysler transmissions acting up because of wrong fluid in them, even when lube places tell you it's o.k to use something else. Just a heads up.
