02 intrepid - code P0700
I am new to this Forum.
I have a 2002 Dodge Intrepid that is having a Transmission problem.
For the first 10 or more miles that I drive the Transmission shifts perfectly as when it was new.
Then I will come up to a light and the car will slow down and then the tranny just thuds as it is downshifting.
When I drive away from the light the Transmission will no longer shift and stays in one gear.
Then if I turn off the car for a short errand and return, when I drive away,
all is fine again for awhile and then the process starts all over.
I have checked the code with the key on and off process and I
get a P0700 then "done" in my mileage display, my OBD Engine light is on.
Though it flashes after the word done appears in my odometer.
From what I have seen in searching the web this is an indication that there is a problem with
my (TCS) Transmission Control Assembly.
The Transmission Solenoid Assembly is bad.
What is entailed in repairing this?
Is the Solenoid pack internal or external of the Transmission.
Has any one had this repaired before and what does it cost.
I went to GoodYear but they tell me to go to the Dealer.
My Transmission has 105,000 miles on it.
Thanks for any help,
