Question about 1994 Chrysler Town & Country

2 Answers

Before the van completely warms up, it hesitates as I give it gas. It also hesitates as it shifts gears. After it warms up, the hesitation goes away. The van sat in the garage for almost two months while we were out of the country. Drove it about 2,000 miles last week after we returned from overseas. Thanks.

I think I would check or replace the "Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor". It gives engine temperature signal to the Engine Control Module. I did a search on internet to see if there is a quick test of the "Coolant Sensor" (http://www.asashop.org/autoinc/may98/techtotech.htm)or replace (Auto Zone SU326 $22.99). Good luck

Mitsubishi express van 2.4 auto not changing into 4th gear. Any ideas?


If it's hesitant to shift, or not shifting at all, it could be a simple fix.
The first thing you'll have to do is to check the transmission fluid. Allow your van time to completely warm up before doing this. I recommend you do this while it is running. If it is low on fluid, there's your problem. If the fluid level is okay, then you may need the transmission filter and fluid both changed. Changing you fluid/filter is relatively simple. It's similar to an oil change with the exception being that the filter is inside the transmission, visible only when you remove the transmission pan. The filter isn't like an oil filter, it's more akin to your filter on your home A/C unit. Some have a replaceable filter, and some have a permanent filter that you'll have to remove and clean before re-installing. If you do need to replace it, they are inexpensive and found at any auto parts store. If it's still giving you problems, unfortunately it may be an internal problem that you'll have to take to a transmission specialist. Make sure to find out exactly how much fluid it holds and what type of transmission fluid it needs before you change it.

Check TPS for smooth and linear electrical response over the entire range of motion. If the response is jumpy or erratic at all, replace TPS.

My 1990 towncar hesitates at third gear going 38 mph it first revs then switches into the gear..also it doesnt go into passing gear when i pass a car it wont shift down..


your tranny is going out. VERY common with the 8 cylinders. Have seen it many many times. You should still be able to drive it for a year or so before it goes completely.
When it revs up just let off the gas til the rpm's go down, and then slowly give gas again.

V40 hard to start and will not idle unless I give it a little gas


We had the same problem and found it was the fuel pressure regulator. Upon replacing it no longer gives any hesitation at startup.
