you may try draining the fluid and replacing the filter check the pan for metal deposits and if none reinstall new fluid with Lucas transmission additive at a ratio of 50% it sounds like your valve body or internal pump is leaking pressure due to a worn seal and this lucas treatment should help for a while, if not you a least tried before sourcing a new or rebuilt trans axle good luck and please rate- Jeff

The over drive band is damage inside or the valve body has to be repaired, I would take to the transmission shop. The transmission is going to have to be repaired internally

Sounds like you need a starter, or you have a loose wire somewhere under the hood.

I have no brake lights in my 1989 chrysler new yorker but have every other lights whats the problem?

Check the stop light switch down by the brake pedal. there's 2 wires going to the switch. when the pedal is pressed the little button on the switch comes out and causes the brake lights to come on. Try unplugging it and putting a jumper wire in the plug to complete the circuit. Second guess: if the car is rusted, check the wires in the trunk above the wheels.

The electronic speedometer, fuel guage and odometer are not lighting up and all the fuses are good. They were all working until the battery went dead and the car had to be boosted. What could this be?

after a car is being jumped it could affect many sensitives electrical components. this battery jump might have blown out the l.e.d lights on the dashboard

Where is the voltage regulator on a 1986 new yorker 2.2 turbo i,ve checked all over under the hood with no luck should,nt it be on the passengers side wall,thanks in advance,gary.

chrystler had a rash of vechiles that they used the ecm as the voltage regulator, if this is the case and your new altenator is not charging then you can install a diode pack obtainable at your local parts store. it could also have an internally regulated altenator.
