1995 Intrepid TRANSMISSION PROBLEM
Hey guys I am having a problem with my transmission
When I am driving my intrepid it will slip out of gear and feel as if it is in neutral (It usually only slips out while in first or second gear) It is impossible to get the car back into gear by moving the shifter from park to drive again without turning ignition off then on. Once I have turned the ignition off then on again it is able to go back into gear but slip out later.
Sometimes while I am driving it will refuse to go into 3rd gear and higher. I believe that is limp mode? Once I turn the ignition off then on again then it is able to proceed to 3rd and higher.
The fluid/filter has always been maintained at the correct service intervals all the time and the fluid is at a perfect level. I always use the recommended ATF+4 for every service and I serviced it last week after this problem surfaced.
Current mileage is at 345,000 kilometer (yes, high)
I have searched the forums and found problems the exact same to mine but nobody has revealed exactly what will fix this problem.
I am going to AAMCO tomorrow and they are diagnosing the problem free of charge. I will post the codes and what AAMCO says is wrong with the transmission.
I am capable of changing the input speed sensor, output speed sensor, solenoid pack, and the range sensor myself. I do not want to begin changing these parts until a more accurate diagnosis is made.
Has anyone had this problem before and found the cause? what fixed it? does anybody have any ideas that can help?
