Well..i am not sure whether this is gonna solve your problem..but i had the same head ache with the check engine & check engine electronics alert on the cluster instrument..i removed the battery terminals for 10 minutes and replaced them & my problem solved successfully..but just beware that you connect them together at the same time with no short circuits which might mislead u with the same problem.

I have a 1994 DeVille, with less than 100K miles. Should I be concerned about 2 small oil leaks (they appear to happen directly under the engine when sitting in the drive way). We just had transmissio

Yes, Those small leaks will become big leaks. Is it trans fluid red color? Then I would go back to the shop where the trans service was done to have them re-seal the pan gasket.
Thank You for using

P0740 is the Torque Converter. It is actually attached to the transmission. When I was getting code PO740, I had to have the torque converter replaced. PO700 is the Transmission Control Module. This is not inside the transmission but rather part of the control side of the transmission. You did not say how many miles you have on it, You did not say whether you have ever replaced the transmission fluid before, I do not trust mechanics, I learned how to work on my vehicle myself. I cannot replace a transmission or a motor but, I have 330K miles on my Pentastar 3.6L Engine and original transmission, You must change your transmission fluid but if you went over 100K miles and never replaced it, you have more than likely caused the transmission to have internal failure, Some people do not believe in replacing the transmission fluid. The reason you must change it, is because the fluid breaks down and cannot cool the transmission down. After you change it at 100K , I myself change mine then after another 50K then after another 20K and I change it if I notice even the slightest slip in the transmission,

Transmission code PO732/open or short circuit condition

check transmission fluid level when hot,engine running in neutral.fluid should be reddish in color,should not smell burnt.
trans fluid & filter should be replaced at +/- 100k miles.
possibly transmission shift solenoid.

1994 Plymouth Voyager 3.3 The "Check Engine Light" comes on after driving 6 miles on open highway.

Take to local auto parts store and they will usually run codes for free and from there you can find the most likely source of the problem area.

Service 100 thousands miles

The 04 was pretty straight forward.

Change the oil and filter when the display tells you to. (Don't forget to reset Oil Life system!)
when the display tells you to change engine oil... Do the following as well:
~Lube Chassis Components
~Check Tires for Air and Damage
~Inspect Break System
~Check Engine Fluids and Washer System
~Check Power Steering System
~Check Wiper Blades
~Check Restraint System
~Lube Body Components (See manual)
~Replace Cabin Air Filter (Located in firewall on passenger side.)

Every 25K miles do the following:
~ Inspect Fuel System, Exhaust System, Accessory Drive Belts for damage or wear.
~ Replace Air Cleaner

Ever 50K Miles
~ If used for Towing - Replace Transfer Case Fluid :: If not change fluid ever 75Kk miles.

Every 100k Miles
~ Change Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter
~ Change Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter again at 150k if heavy service
~ Replace Spark Plugs

Every 150k miles
~ Change Engine Coolant (Or every 5 years which ever comes first!)
~ Replace Engine Accessory Drive Belt

optional y are supposed to change the transfer case fluid every 50k if towing

Bad vibration and car won't function

being 98 and having 100k on the vehicle can be numerous thing can be wrong and need replacing. first thing being 98 and 100k miles, the way you describe it, the car may have jump time and timing belt may need replacing, second can be weak/faulty fuel pump, injectors, cam and crank sensors may also be going bad. have you check the basic from spark plugs, coil, wires and distributor and rotor. air-mass flow sensor may also going bad and not working properly. on top of it all, transmission should be flush at 100k, it also sound like it may need new transmission. bad vibration is a sign the engine is not running correctly form being off timing. I would start looking in at the timing belt and see if the belt worn and still in correct timing. I would go ahead and have it replace if you planed to keep the car. being 98' used running motors are cheaper than doing a complete engine rebuild from a junk yard or ebay and same way with transmission. hope that help some..

Check engine light

115000 miles on a Benz is not a lot of mileage provided the car was serviced on time and properly. You might want to have someone run a scan for trouble codes to see why the light is on. It could just be a bad 02 (oxygen) sensor. Does the car run OK?
