Need to have the transmisson fluid checked and most likely changed. Take it to a reputable shop and it costs about $150.00 to have it done, you can do it yourself for less but it's a mess unless you have everything you need.

98 voyager 3.3 auto trans wont chande gears --seems to be staying in second gear --- hard to move from standstill --- engine temp light came on --- once transmission cools down it works ok til gets h


If you have been driving it, with it over heating as well as
low on fluid your pretty much done & will need a rebuild

If you just drove 10 miles-- then possibly you could have it
diagnosed & find a less costly solution- such as bad solenoids,
but I doubt it

The torque converter is where OD takes place. Look at your transmission fluid cooler to see if it's blocked. The TCM module controls the OD functions so it may not be sending the correct signals.

Transmission fluid goes low when driving for awhile then goes back to normal when parked for awhile


The transmission fluid level is to be checked with the ENGINE RUNNING, ond trans in park or neutral. there is fluid in the torque converter that will raise the fluid level when the engine is off..this is normal. So, I suspect that you may be low on fluid. and the indication after being parked for a while is not valid. Engine MUST be running, and ideally the trans fluid warmed up, but not critical.

Check automatic transmission fluid level


Dipstick is to the left of the engine. Should be a small yellow dipstick. Add fluid through the dipstick hole. The vehicle should be running when you do this. It is best to have driven at least 20 miles before adding trans fluid so everything has had time to get hot.

Your transmission fluid contain water,thats why the colour of the fluid changed to pink.And of such the clutch is slipping causing the engine to reve up before shifting - Check transmission cooler.
