You should start by getting the correct dipstick.The length is different on the engine dipstick and it may just be low on fluid.May also have a leak in the low reverse clutch pack or underdrive clutch.Have the transmission scanned and look at the CVI values.Low reverse should not be higher than 80.If it is then the trans has internal problems.Good Luck!

First, get a correct dipstick, you cannot verify levels with one that is not the right height-with all those miles, I almost be afraid to do a trans service, but the codes you are getting are because the trans either has plugged passages in the valve body, or you have issues with the shift solenoids-worst case you might end up putting a used trans in it, they are not alot and can be found everywhere.

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.

Check engine light po 731


Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0731 is a transmission fault code and has a generic description of "GEAR RATIO ERROR IN FIRST GEAR".

The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) monitors the input shaft speed and the output shaft speed of the transmission through the input and output speed sensors. The proper gear ratio will produce a predictable difference between the two sensors. This DTC sets when the expected difference differs greatly from the actual difference between the two speed sensor readings.

This can be caused by several things including:
> Defective input speed sensor
> Defective output speed sensor
> Defective connections or wiring between either speed sensor and the PCM
> Shorted speed sensor circuit
> Open speed sensor circuit
> Slipping clutches inside the transmission

Please note that Transmission Control Module (TCM) replacement WILL NOT correct for this code.

The speed sensor data must be monitored with the proper equipment and the speed sensor circuits must be verified for proper function to determine the actual cause of this fault.

Just bought 1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager and it ran good for about 50 miles then it cut off and now won't start. it trys to start and battery seems good.


Have you checked the fuel filter? It may not be getting fuel. Had an experience with this - vehicle was fine but shut it off and it wouldn't start. No problems before but the fuel filter went fast.

I have a 1999 plymouth voyager 3.3 liter v6 with automatic 4 speed tranny.when i put it in gear it acts up for a second and shuts off. i hooked it up to a actron obd and the codes are P0700 trans cntr syst...


sounds like a problem in the PCM. a more sophisticated diagnostic computer is needed to test the system out, most repair shops should have these. i would get multiple estimates from different garages and one from a dodge dealer.

How to change the rear spark plugs of a 96 plymouth voyager


The engine plenum will have to be removed. This is what the air goes thru to get to the engine intake. Remove ground, mark tag remove required cable, wires and hoses, take digital photos as you go. Be patient. The good news is we don't have to change them every 20K miles.

1988 Plymouth Grand Voyager cutting out. On and off since the 1990's. In 2007 I bought a rebuilt engine to replace original engine. This did not solve problem. So I know the problem lies somewhere between...


If it's similar to my 96 Voyager it restarts after just a few seconds and seems fine. Cut outs are completely random as to frequency and driving conditions. In my voyager the solution was embarassingly simple. I had bought the car used with 172000 miles on it. It turned out it was still using the factory original fuel filter (date stamped 1995). A new filter and a fuel tank flush and no problems for the last thousand or so miles. Hope this helps, without more symptoms I can guess a lot of possibles, but this was the solution for mine.

1998 Plymouth Voyager does not shift to 3rd gear when driving,3.3


It's in limp home mode. You'll have to check wire connections and electronic controls. If it has a vacuum modulator you can remove it and look for trans fluid on the vacuum hose side (meaning ruptured diaphram). Double check the parts you replaced as well, especially if they were used parts. My dad went through three speed sensors in one year on his Caravan. You should drop the pan after checking other components. It could be a bad relay, shorted module or wire. The three speed transmissions are much more reliable than the four speed overdrive transmissions but with age and miles things can go wrong and parts will wear out.
