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

2002 chrysler concorde 3.5 transmission slips when cold


Plz have fluid and filter changed in transmission. Sounds like filter is clogged and starving transmission of fluid until it warms up and thins out the fluid..Hope this helps.

Transmission Question


It sounds to me like the transmission is starting to fail. As the clutches inside the transmission wear the clutch pack gains additional clearance. Your pressures in the transmission will be higher with cold oil so it has a tendency to build a bit of extra pressure, but it's also slower in flowing through the transmission. This results in a harder hitting first gear. As the transmission warms up, it will reduce the viscosity of the oil and work fine. Cold weather kills automatic transmissions. Let it warm up before driving it or it won't last long. It will require an overhaul soon.

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.

Transmission slips a little when cold and in cold weather only


My solution would be to recommend a transmission stabilizer additive. Lucas Oil makes a transmission stabilizer. The cost is about $12. Be sure to read the instructions...you need to warm the motor and ******...add through the transmission dipstick fill tube. This additive can work better than a fluid and filter change...depending on your mileage, many mechanics do not recommend opening the transmission pan to drain and replace fluid, and filter. This additive is the best one that I have used. It works to reseal and lubricate your transmission seals, and bands. Hope this helps.

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.

2004 ram3500 transmission slippage when warm


Hi, transmission slipping normally does not occur when the transmission is warm, as warm temperatures favor proper working of the automatic transmission systems. Nonetheless, if problems such as, broken transmission bands, gears or torque conversion already exist, then the transmission might slip even in warm temperatures. Another situation may arise, if the fluid suffers from contraction in cold weather and gradually the weather warms up sufficiently, to expand the internal parts and fluids. Then due to cold weather, a small transmission problem might occur. However, the problem may be too small to affect the vehicle. However, warm weather cannot be directly linked to transmission slipping.
