If you have a 3 speed transmission the problem could be with the tv rod . It goes from the carb or fuel ing. to the transmission. the rod could be hanging or the spring may have broke.If you have the 4 speed trans. you will need to have the computer scaned

My transmission seems to jump when I stop at a light? I have a 1998 Plymouth voyager 3.3 v6

When is the last time you had the fluid changed? If by jump you mean it seems to shift late or hard you could have a problem with the solenoid packs. Does the computer throw any codes?

I have 1999 chrysler voyager change tran fluid will not stuck in 2st won"t change 1st< 3st 4st

Your speed sensor might be hanging up.when you changed the trans oil and filter did your old oil smell burnt, and make sure you put the right fluid init.If your oil is burnt looks like you have a big job ahead of you.

You changed the fluid on an already slipping

Too old a vehicle to put time & money into

tells you their not a good unit at all,only the ford

1998 PLYMOUTH Voyager 2.4 3 speed auto Just started doing this: stays in first gear until about 28 mph.

Sounds like a valve body problem, or shift solenoid inside the transmission. Sounds like it is sticking. Check fluid make sure it is not brown which means it is burnt, and make sure there is plenty of fluid but not overfilled.

I drive 1998 plymouth voyager that is stuck in 2nd gear. what should i do?

the only thing i would try is maybe an additive to your tranny fluid or drain it and replace the tranny filter and start over. It is really hard to say if that will help you might just be waisting your money. I should also recomend that you check your fluid level. If you are low on tranny fluid this will cause a malfuntion, usually slipping not sticking though. never the less check it. The motor needs to be warm and in park to get an acurat reading. If that doesnt help get some sea foam. I have had really good luck with it. It will clean and free up sticking valves in your tranny. If the sea foam helps after a few days i would reccomend you change your fluid and filter. and if that doesnt help well your transmission probably needs to see a shop.

When your replace both the filter and fluid you'll only get to @ 4.5 quarts. Reason being I recommend changing the fluid, run it for a day or two and change the fluid again. This way you will be more incline to dilute out the old tranny fluid. Think of it as having a bucket of dirty water, if you dump out half and fill with good water you still have alot of dirt in there, if you were to dump it half way down again and refill you end up with cleaner fluid. If you do the filter alone with fluid you only get @ half of the fluid. It is cheap insurance as the Chrysler trans-axels are very touchy to the fluid quality.
I hope this may have helped,

Slips out of gear and/or not downshifting

check the vehicle speed sensor and the throttle position sensor if one of them are bad the transmission may not know when to shift
