If it is only happening sometimes, you should get your transmission serviced ASAP. If you do this you should be able to save the transmission.

****** studders from 1st to 2nd gear


Transmission should be serviced with new filter and oil every 50k or so. If you missed the one at 50k, and by the dark fluid I'm guessing you did not do it at 100k, you likely need a new transmission.

My trans is stuck in second gear. Is that what


The town and country vans are know for transmission problems and it would not be stuck in 2nd gear if it was in limp mode. Limp mode typically controls the engine. I have seen people do a transmission flush/filter and add lucas to temporary fix the problem. There is also a good chance that the transmission has a solenoid problem preventing it from shifting into any other gears but second. Hope this helps!

Transmission on my 99 T&C hesitates at times


Its the begining of the ruins of the torque converter. Its stator is letting go before it has enough time to build torque. Pretty soon you'll smell the ATF start to heat up.
You'll get a check engine light and will only be able to drive in 3rd and reverse. Take it to a Transmission repair shop. Why waite to be stranded.

On a 2001 Chrysler town and country the transmission will go in park, neutral, reverse and will drive in either drive, 3d or 1st gear. The problem is that it won't shift from 1st gear to second or third...


sounds like you are looking at a rebuild. chrysler transmissions need to be adjusted periodically by a qualified tech. if they aren't adjusted properly the results can be catastrophic.

Check the universal joints in the drive shaft to rear axel. 120,000 miles, its time for replacement. Safety hazard exist, check soon. Also transmission filter should have been serviced at 60,000 miles. Its time.

Transmission jerks


One possibility is that the speed sensor is going out. When that happens the computer gets bad information and thus makes bad decisions. When the car goes into 2nd all of the solenoids are actually off. That is so if there is some kind of problem the transmission gets no power, then it still has P, R, N, 2nd. It would be kind of weird, maybe, to see only the 1-2 shift being affected but I can't really think of anything else that could cause that kind of problem.
