99 chrysler sebring lxi auto trans. 8 Mo. ago I had a slipping problem I changed the filter and new fluid and it has ran perfect since then until the other day I was driving down the road and went to pass a semi on the interstate i didn't really punch it down or anything just gave it gas then it reved up to high rpm's but the car wasn't responding so I pulled it over and checked the fluid it looked ok. it will move in second gear a little bit but thats all I have. towed it home now where do I start? should I maybe try replacing the filter and fluid again or do I probably have bigger problems this time. 203,000 mi.

Could be a shift solenoid gone bad, causing it to go into "limp mode".

Without a transmission technician to verify, it's kinda guesswork, but I've seen this exact problem before. In fact, I've had it happen to my wife's T & C van. If you're willing to gamble around $175, you can put it on yourself, as it's external to the transmission case.

Go to your local library and check out a vehicle specific repair manual for Chrysler Corp. transmission. It should fully outline what to do.

I have a 1997 sebring lxi. It now will not turn over. I sprayed starter fluid in the intake and it turns over. I changed the fuel pump, fuel filter, and the relay. What else could it be?


Do you hear the fuel pump coming on normally comes on for approx 10 sec. when you turn key on, if no pump noise fault is still in fuel system, check the fuse and wiring, check for trouble codes, check injectors, etc

Is it true that the auto transmission fluid for chrysler grand voyagercan only be a particular type? Likewise for brake fluid and power sterling fluid??


The Filter inside the trans will only fit similar units

If your adding an external filter on return line then
a trans & power steering filter is the same inside

5/16" for trans -- usually
3/8" for P/S

Get the Filtran Filter with the magnet & only
use on trans or P/S return lines & change every

99 chrysler cirrus lxi won't shift out of 2nd, no speedometer


Had the same problem on my 1999 cirrus lxi. Replaced the output speed sensor on the tranny and topped off the tranny fluid... cleared the check engine light and the cirrus ran great. Caution...the output speed sensor reqires removal of the front left tie and plastic weatherproofing to replace. once you find it's locvation, the replacement is relatively easy.
