99 T&C transmission problems Sign In

I have a 99 T&C 3.8 i believe it has the a604 transmission in it.

I recently replaced the shift solenoid but i am still having some issues.
a) shifting is still hard mostly when coming to a stop and down shifting.
b) there is a slight whining sound from the left front ( tranny area ) and i can here it ramp up at times when driving.
c) and its been dropping into neutral when coming to a quick stop mostly when everything is cold.

I am pretty sure my tranny is dying a slow death any ideas?

? "C" on your post. Drops out to neutral when slowing/stopping noted. Are you absolutely sure this is properly filled with transmission fluid? Happens but are you sure it's even the correct dipstick for it? That happens too.


Fluid rushing to one side/end of pan may lose pressure sucking air to hold gear plus possible damage, noises not good signs for this trans IMO,

(Changed #3 to 'C')

scan for codes.
Use ONLY the required fluid - I think its ATF4 double check and do not get cheap here.

i filled the transmission with 5 quarts of fluid when i changed out the filter. I am not sure about the dipstick its the one that came with the van.

What is stupid is that the transmission is one of most engineered parts of this van and i cant find anything anywhere that tells me how much fluid the thing takes to operate properly.

i put a lil more in this morning and the weird shifting has stopped so i guess i am going to have to take it in and have it power flushed and re filled.

why not get the correct dipstick ? See your local friendly Chrysler dealer.

4-5qts with a filter is @ right BUT was it full to start with? The dipstick is the way to confirm level.
Did you use the correct fluid as mentioned?

He won't have any better luck finding the full point than you if you don't have the correct dipstick.
