Question about 1984 Chrysler LeBaron

1 Answer

I have a 1984 Chrysler lebaron turbo, and my transmission just went out yesterday. It will not shift down into first gear by itself, I have to put it in first by moving the shifter. Even then, it slips. Can I have this rebuit, or does it need replacing? The car only has 109000 miles on it. Where would be the cheapest place to find a new transmission? I have someone to install it already.

Yes it can be rebuilt but it usually would cost around $3,500 to do it. Your best bet is find one in a wrecked car, in a junk yard. Or try on the internet like ebay.


Good Luck!

this sounds like transmission failure as limp mode would allow reverse and 2nd gear only to allow you to drive to a shop to have it checked out.

I have a 1993 Chrysler Lebaron Convertible with 3.0 L V-6 and automatic 3 spd w/overdirve transmission. A couple of years ago, the transmission went into "limp-in" mode a couple of times, then...


My friend, from the sounds of it a scanner is not going to help you. It sounds like your valve assembly and possibly one or more of the bands are shot. Usually, when a tranny starts to slip in and out of gear on it's own or slips under a load that is not something that can be fixed without replacing parts. If it was a shift solenoid then it would just not shift into or out of certain gears. I am not even sure that a 93 would have an electric shift solenoid.

I feel your pain though, my tranny went out 8 months ago and I tried all sorts of things to "heal" it, from flushes to new cooler to additives but deep down, I knew it was shot and it was. Now, $3500 later, it runs fine :)

Transmission will get stuck in a gear and wont up shift to the next gear or it will constantly up shift and down shift


suggest you check for a vacum line off that goes to the transmission modulator valve, which controls the shifting in transmission.or may possibly just be a bad modulator valve on the side of the transmission. 1st check for a vacum line off, with engine running do you hear a whistling or air sucking sound on top or rear of motor? if so, follow that sound to a hose or small black hose thats off.if you are driving the car and start off in low drive and can manually shift to upper gears with no problems,your problem is either a vacum line off, or it's a bad modulator valve on the transmission. hope this helps!!!

How to replace a 1984 Chrysler Lebaron ignition switch


the ignition switch is located under the dash on the steering column and is simple....
disconnect connector, remove to screws and replace switch

if however, you mean the ignition tumbler, the place where you put the key, then it a lot tougher

Premium. Gas is rated by octane lnumbers and those numbers have stayed the same over the years. Mid gas would not have a high enough octane rating for your engine.

88 LeBaron --3 things...


problem 1 check the motors side by side
if the operation and mounting is the same more than likely will
problem 2 put the hand brake on and start the car, place in gear if it idles ok then put your foot on the brake --if it plays up it is a vacuum leak in the brake booster
problem 3-- gm has a policy of not changing transmission oil
if the car has more than 100,000miles on it , I would suggest taking it to an accredited transmission specialist shop, have the bands and clutch packs adjusted and a transmission oil change done

First and foremost, check the fluid! Second, check ALL the vacuum lines in the vehicle. Now as for the fuse... referencing the shop manual, I can not find a transmission related fuse. Did you try checking the trouble codes, if any?
