Not without changing your control modules and quite possibly your wiring harness.

I put in a used transmission on a 2002 Stratus. It is doing the same thing. Downshifts hard when coming to a stop. Does the computer need flashed?


Hello Charles Bunner

The most intelligent thing you can do at this point... is to hire, borrow or buy and OBD (ON Board Diagnostic) READER...

I'll display a couple at the bottom... but your STRATUS has got to be throwing up codes...!!

That is where YOU NEED TO BE LOOKING.

My first thought would not be continued focus on the transmission... Yes it should be flashed...
(
it is standard protocol for transmission
modifications & revision level changes).

There are 14 service bulletins on your vehicle...
involving torque converter clutch issues pump: loss of prime
4 - 3 harsh down shift... (See BBB Industries below)

So without a doubt... your CONTROL MODULE needs to know what rev. level transmission it is dealing with...

HOWEVER... since you are experiencing the same issues
with another transmission... entirely...

I'm thinking hard down-shifts are caused by the idle speed being seriously out of whack...

Hope this helps!!

On a 97 subaru impreza outback sport my transmission (automatic) shifts funny and sometimes slips completely but other times it shifts fine with no problems what gives?


SUBARU Automatic Transmission Solenoid A Dropping Resistor July 2, 2011. Author: Lewis Werner The SUBARU automatic transmission dropping resistor is connected in parallel with duty solenoid A. Duty solenoid A regulates the Subaru automatic transmission fluid line pressure. Like most of the transmission solenoids, duty solenoid A's duty cycle is varied by the transmission control unit (TCU) to control the line pressure.
The dropping resistor works with duty solenoid A in regulating the automatic transmission fluid line pressure. This resistor keeps a certain amount of current flow through duty solenoid A during the 'OFF' portion of its duty cycle. So in other words, duty solenoid A is never fully 'OFF'.
The dropping resistor is located on the right front shock tower, near the MPI (multi-port injection) fuel system dropping resistor. The photos at the right depict the Subaru automatic transmission dropping resistor.
If this resistor fails open, becomes disconnected, or has its wiring severed, one result might be increased shift shock. The reasoning behind this is that without the resistor in the circuit, the line pressure may be higher, since without the current passing through solenoid A during the 'OFF' portion of its duty cycle, it will tend to close further, and thus not bleed off as much pressure from the automatic transmission fluid pump.
If the resistor fails open or is disconnected, it should cause the ATF temperature lamp to flash 16 times on the next startup, since the TCU would be able to see electrically that the resistor is open.
This resistor was used on the SUBARU 4EAT phase I and 4EAT phase II automatic transmissions. It may also be used on the 5EAT though I have not confirmed it. http://www.scoobyenthusiast.com/subaru-components/subaru-automatic-transmission-solenoid-dropping-resistor

Will a chevy s-10 motor work in a 85 mitsubishi mighty max


Not without using the chevy transmission (and transfer case if it's a 4WD Mighty Max), Custom Motor Mounts, Custom Transmission Mount, Wiring Modifications, Driveshaft Modifications (either lengthened or shortened, depending on where the transmission or transfer case is located). Possibly shifter hole modifications (if it's a 5-Speed Manual), or Custom Linkage/Linkage Modifications (If it's an Automatic)

Where is transmission fluid intake valve on 1995 Eagle Talon stick


If you have a standard transmission and not an automatic, it does not use regular transmission fluid. It uses a heavy duty oil (85w-90w) and is serviced thru a plug in the side of the transmission housing. If it is low you probably have a seal leaking. If it is a front seal, it can get into your clutch area and cause you some major grief. If the leak is in the rear it can be normally replaced without pulling the transmission.

Transmission for 1988, 350, conversion van


A turbo400 trans will bolt up but you will have to change the drive shaft as the output shaft is longer than the 350 trans. There will be no trans exchange with a different type that will fit without some modifications.

F150 transmission neutralizes when shifts to overdrive


I have that exact same truck and transmission and My Transmission did the exact same thing about a year ago and there was some kind of snap ring inside the transmission that broke. I originally thought it had to be an electirical problem because the truck shifted fine until OD or if i turned OD off. The 4r70w is a light transmission and i would suggest you have a shift kit put in and they make a heavier kit to beef it up.. Sorry its probably not the new you were looking for.
