Question about 1994 Plymouth Grand Voyager

Shifting problems when hot

Your question was

Hi, I have a 1992 Plymouth Voyager that's been having transmission problems. It won't shift into second when it's hot. It shifts fine cold. It can drive down the highway for hours, but as soon as it drives in town, it won't shift into second. Once it cools down, it's good again.
The mechanic has put in a Transmission control module, and EETX relay, a solonoid pack and input speed sensor and an output speed sensor.
Please help!

These kinds of problems are common on the dodge mini vans, I think you will need to overhaul the trans, it has an internal fluid leak, one other thing to check is the electrical connector to the trans, make sure it is tight and has no corrosion or fluid in it, a poor connector connection can also cause these kinds of issues hot.

When my 1998 plymouth grand voyager runs a long time the transmission starts to have a hard time shifting or not shifting at all until it cools down.


How many miles? I'm guessing 150k atleast. A complete transmission flush/pan filter is probably your only option. Other than that, it is mechanical and needs to be rebuilt or the torque converter replaced, etc. Basically, if the flush/pan filter doesn't work, you probably need a new vehicle.

My 1997 plymouth voyager 3 speed will not shift until it hits the speed of 45 mph, what would be the problem?


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you replace the automatic transmission fluid. If the fluid is burnt, the car tends to shift slowly. Once the fluid is replaced, a smooth ride and shifting will be noticeable. It will not just smoothen the shifting but you will surely have better fuel burning.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

1994 plymouth voyager, not shifting into drive


Not shifting? or is the tranny dust? Is this mechanical (in the linkage) or does the transmission "spin" when put into Drive?

The Voyager is infamous for it's bad transmissions.. Craigslist is "littered" with Caravans and Voyagers that need transmissions.. The replacement can cost as much as $2600.. and finding a used one is not always easy.. the cheapest and best way to replace it is get a rebuilt one.. and do it yourself.. it is time consuming yet fairly simple on the 3.0 engine. The hardest part is seperating the struts.. this might be a two man job.. BTW.. don't let the torque converter fall out of the transmission.. get a book if you attempt this repair at home.. jack he van up as high as you can.. the engine is easily supported with a couple of 2x4 cut to fit..

I have replaced a transmission on 1995 Caravan..

Won't shift into gear plymouth voyager


Hi the Transmission control module is having communication issues with the sitting solenoids that actually preform the shifting once you initiate it by using the in car stick. these solenoids are inside of the transmission pan and you will need to replace them.

Please rate and god bless:)

Transmission


The transmissions in these mini vans like yours are a very prone to failure, u will find in the end that it will have to be pulled out and repaired, check on the internet for the class action law suits for transmission failures on this van, there are thousands of complaints.
