You might want to try flushing the transmission and replacing the filter in it and refill with fresh transmission fluid. The problem you are describing can be caused by poor circulation of transmission fluid. This causes the transmission to overheat and then slip. When you shut it off it lets the fluid settle. When you start off again the cycle will complete again. This is hopefully your problem, I'm pretty sure it is because I had similar scenario with my vehicle and as soon as I flushed it out and changed the filter it went fine. I sold the car just in case and I still see the guy driving it around and he never mentioned ever having any problems when I run into him. Try this first before you go spending hundreds or more having someone rob you on a transmission job you do not need. Hope this helps you.

This sounds more like the solenoid than the speed sensor. And the problem is electrical. Check the solenoid and replace it just in case and normally that will solve the problem

2005 freestar transmission problems


This is probably the result of a belt / loose linkage. Linkage is the system of mechanical rods, cables, etc. that connect the gear shifter inside the car to the transmission itself. This is usually an inexpensive repair.

High idle unless driving in gear, but if clutch is pushed in or car is in neutral rpm goes up to 2900


run fault codes to check for accelerator position sensor problems . Check for vacuum leaks. If cable accelerator then check that the return spring on the end of the cable is attached and not missing.

If you tow your car in neutral how come is stuck on one gear. Towing got no problems. That mean it wasnt in neutral it was in gear but the clutch is stuck and seem the gear is in neutral. You should have clutch problem before you think about gear box.

97 T+C Speed sensor Throttle Position Sensor or Replace Tranny


these are trans codes for spd sensor and gear ratio sensors. has this trans been replaces at any time?
For some reason there are a number of different transmissions that have gone into these vans and have different gear ratios. alot of trans shops put the wrong on in that does fit but improper gear ratios. or just hopfully the sensor did go bad. they usually recommend rebuild due to being half in the trans any ways.

umm i dont know what your asking except if this may need a rebuild? I would say ask whats all included in a rebuild. all trans shops seem to differ in what they call a rebuild but all seem, to have about that same price. these chrysler transmission also seem to have alot of random pressure solenoid and solenoid pack and valve body problems.
if you want shoot back a response in what they all do and ill give you my opinion on if its a fair price for what is begine replaced. get written on paper what is replaced. not verbal.
Good luck
