More than likely, like most automatic transmissions, yours does not have an oil plug. You need to drop the transmission oil pan to drain the old oil... You need to buy a transmission filter/pan gasket kit. The filter is located on the bottom of the tranny. You will see it when you remove the pan. Replace the filter, thoroughly remove any traces of old gasket material, clean the mating surfaces, and reinstall the pan with the new gasket. Torque the pan bolts to the manufacturers spec (you should be able to get this where you buy the filter/gasket kit). Refill the transmission through the dipstick (Capacity for the Voyager is 4 quarts, make sure to use ATF Plus (Type 7176) for your particular tranny, NOT Dexron, Mercon, or generic automatic transmission fluid, Chrysler transmissions do not like any other kind and tend to fail quite quickly with the wrong fluid). Fill to the full cold level. Start the engine, move the shifter through all gear ranges, and put it back in park. Leave the engine running and refill to cold full. Drive the car for 5-10 minutes and, with the engine still running and the car in park, fill to Hot full. You should be ready to go!

    By the way, you might not need the full 4 quarts because some of the old oil likely stayed in the torque converter (It usually does not drain by itself). Check the level regularly while filling.

Gear box oil


my granddad has a voyager LX CRD, he has problems with getting the car into gear, as he says if you are lazy (cutting corners on the gearbox) it won't go into gear. we checked the gearbox oil and it was low and also it seemed that it was transmission fluid (for an automatic car) ALTHOUGH my granddads car was a manual. this is the one thing that chrysler don't come first for - Manual Cars
hope i helped you

Plymouth voyager is leaking pink fluid what could it be


Hi Barajas, The pink fluid may well be automatic transmission fluid. (ATF) The fluid in question is used in the automatic gearbox and the power steering unit. Different fluids come in different colors in different countries, but ATF is usually red or pink. Check the fluid levels in the gearbox and the power steering unit and I believe you'll find one of them is lower than its meant to be. Regards John

You should flush the transmission out. Remember mopar uses high friction trans fluid and when this fluid gets somewhat old and looses friction then it will not operate properly.

When the automatic transmission downshifts at


Hi, Honestly i would start with the basics first and change the filter and fluid, if you are not getting a check engine light with any transmission codes a filter change should fix the problem. but remember always use atf +4, do not use any transmission fluid but this.

Chrysler voyager automatic transmission problem


Sounds like you have yourself a bad shift solenoid pack this is mounted on the front of the transmission under a thick rubber boot and has an 8 or 10mm bolt holding a plug into it, these usually fail hot as it is an electronically controlled solenoid and there are tiny little springs and magnets inside that can stick also while you are in there do yourself a favor and change the two speed sensors on the transmission they are about $22 each and can also cause the problem you are explaining. the shift solenoid pack is about $120 on ebay and some sellers actually sell them along with the input and output speed sensors you may try changing those first and see if it solves it but i have a feeling your solenoid pack is failing also when you change these parts it may take the computer a few trips to relearn shift points but you'll know it fixed it right off the bat.. please rate and good luck -jeff
