By all mean replacement of the fluid can do wonders, especially in Chrysler and Mitsubishi products. FYI: when you do replace the fluid you are only getting about half of it. I have become a firm believer in changing the filter and fluid, drive for 10 miles or so, drain the fluid again and refill. Doing this does a better job of diluting out the old fluid. When tranny fluid breaks down it looses its viscocity, which helps it transfer torque. All things considered this a cheap way to get things right. Good luck with it!

Transmission not shiftin



For car not changing gears it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.

When hot trany will not work in all gears have just replaced filter gasket


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If you haven't replaced the transmission fluid recently then now is the time. If the fluid is burnt, the transmission tends to fail specially on hot temp. Please do check the transmission fluid first as a first course of action.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

I am have problem with my 2004 Dodge Durango straining to shift out of first gear.


Unfortunately automatic transmissions in Dodge trucks are notorious for breaking down. First thing I would try is to change the transmission filter and fluid quite often if the filter is clogged it will cause shifting problems, when you do this you will also need to replace the gasket on the transmission pan. Before doing the job check your owners manual for the proper type of transmission fluid, if you use the wrong type your transmission will not function properly. If this does not fix your problem you will most likely have to either rebuild your current tranny or have a new one installed.

you want the simple answer....its a Dodge, i drive one to, but its true....


complex answer has much more to do with the size of the holes within the transmission where the fluid flows, the clogg up easily with the older fluid, and the seals and bands cant handle it

things you can try

cheapest: fluid and filter, and throw in a bottle of lucas oil for transmissions, this will settle this down some and the lucas oil help for smoother shift

more expensive: fluid flush at a shop, this will do the same thing as a fluid change, but it changes all of the fluid, where as a regualar fluid change only gets about 3/4 new

most expensive, get a rebuid, ultimatly you will have to replace this transmission in the future, you can try the other swteps first and they may help for a while but once a transmission starts going downhill you can slow it down but you cant stop it.

Tranny shifting hard in and out of gears


This transmission is electronicly shifted by the computer (transmission control module) First thing i'd recomend is changing the trans. fluid & filter ( depending on what engine you have the trans may not have a serviceable filter ) Change the fluid and add 1 bottle of LUCAS trans.treatment = 1 QT.

99 durango transmission slips on left turns.


I would say check the fluid level, perhaps the the trans fluid is slinging all the way to one side and is starving the transmission for adequate fluid.

2000 durango 4.7 v8 tranny slip or something. Plzz help!!!


First thing you want to do, is get all that additive stuff out of there & get new filter & proper fluid in there. Mopar ATF 4. then disconnect battery for minute or 2 & start fresh as far as storing trouble codes goes. Chrysler transmissions don't react well to improper fluids or additives. If it starts to act up again, or check engine light comes on, have it scanned for codes at Autozone, or Pep boys & see what codes if any, come up. Don't prolong any transmission problem, as it will only cost you more in the end, if you don't take care of it right away.
