Chrysler voyager automatic transmission problem

When vehicle cold, the transmission seems to work fine. When it is warmed up, it periodically neutralises when in top gear and coasting. When the vehicle slows down after neutralising, it then selects low gear and will not change up.
If you stop the vehicle and turn off the engine, then re-start, the transmission works fine again.
There is no gearbox noise at all and fluid levels are ok.

    I have a very similar problem. When my vehicle is cold it shifts fine it seems, soon as it reaches normal it go's into limp mode. Could this be caused by using the wrong oil?

    Sadly, I had a similar problem which got worse over a period of a few days and eventually the car went into limp-home mode and would only select 1st gear. I drive 30 miles up the M6 to the Chrysler dealership at 25mph in 1st gear with hazards on (boy, was I popular!).

    The dearlership suckered me into a new gearbox at £2800 fitted. I'm guessing, from the above that all I needed was a new solenoid pack?

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

I have 2000 Chrysler Voyager 3.0 automatic what size transmission do I have


I would ask a local private trans repair shop, where their
wholesalers is & go there.
They sell to the public & only deal in trans parts.

There are dozens of professional trans parts venders ,that
sell over the phone or internet.

Deal with the parts pros,then you get it right.

03 Chrysler Voyager heat not warming up. Heater core good, new water pump, not leaking coolant, A/C works fine. Any suggestions?


Perhaps the thermostat is stuck open. That would cause the water to circulate constantly and not trapping it in the block long enough to heat up. While your vehicle is cold, remove the radiator cap. Have someone start the car. You should not see water circulation thru the radiator. That should only happen when the hot water in your block is exchanged with the cooler water in the radiator.

Chrysler voyager clutch judder, have replaced clutch and flywheel but still judders mainly in reverse


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.

Chrysler voyage automatic transmission issue


The geabox fluid needs changing, if the gear changes seem jerky changing up and down, the gearbox needs to be refurbished.

1998 Chrysler Grand Voyager Automatic gear box slipping


If the fluid is full , it sounds like the trans pump is loosing prime. If it is there will be a code set. The code will not always turn on the light. Go have the codes checked. If it does have a loss of prime code in the trans computor and the fluid is full then you will need the trans pump replaced

Transmission fluid change


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!
