Cean,
Yeah but could this be the cause of limp mode? I have not seen (nor heard of) any research claiming the the culprit of limp mode being a dirty tranny filter

If anything makes the transmission not want to shift, I think that the computer will throw it into limp - but I guess I can't recall anything solidly stating that a fluid change fixed it for good. you could try a filter and fluid change - but I'm guessing you're in for a tranny swap

The only risk worth not taking, is not taking one at all.

Dead post revival!

Alright guys, so Shea has had a new solenoid pack put in her and it worked.....for 15 mins. Still hits limp mode. Took out the TCM and opened it up, it appears (to me) that something has been fried because of the smoky color of the gel and 3 little bubble spots like something got to hot underneath.
My question is would this be the culprit of my limpedness? Lol

Sure could be... Try another TCM - and if that doesn't work, try Viagra or Cialis.

Well momma bought a reman-ed TCM from the stealership for $225.50. So let's hope that works. Transmission guy says he don't think its the tranny cause it all "looks good for a 93" even he said there was no point in changing the solenoid pack but it didn't hurt it, so he did.

You got money to burn or something? I'm shocked you spent more than 15 plus shipping on one. Sheesh. That on top of a solenoid pack for no reason...

Where the hell you get one for 15 bucks? Lol. My granny (moms mom) recently passed away and left my mom some money. My mom knowing how much this car meant to me and know means to me went ahead and paid for the repairs.

Any pick-n-pull has them for like $14... I've got a hand full of them (NON autostick though) that I'd have sent to you... If it was autostick, sure - maybe eBay would have had one.

Yeah but wouldn't that be like swapping a bad one for a potential bad one? I told my mom about the pull-a-part and she said that there was no way to check and make sure it was a good TCM. That's when and why she gave the go ahead to get the remanufactured one from dodge themselves.
