1995 Plymouth Voyager Transmission question

Discussion in 'Voyager' started by M.Rustopoulis, Aug 12, 2004.

  1. Hi, I have a 1995 Grand Voyager, almost 200,00 miles. The transmission
    has gone out twice (second time replacement just under warrantee)- now
    it's suddenly going again. Needless to say - I do not wish to replace
    it but would like it to last a few more months before junking it. My
    stepfather picked up some Lucas Transmission Fix Stops Slip, but
    cannot find the drain plug for the transmission since he needs to
    drain some out to put this stuff in. I cannot find the user manual. If
    anyone knows where one is posted online, or knows where the drain plug
    would be located, please reply.

  3. This will not work. It will cause the transmission to fail sooner, not
    There is none.

    No drain plug on these and if you are using anything but ATF+3 in a 4 speed
    automatic OR using additives then you probably just answered why they are
    failing. You may also want to check and be sure it is not the controller.

  5. The ony thing you can possibly do that might extend it's life is to do a
    complete fluid flush. See here:



    "Ultradrive (41TE) transmission fluid flush"

    However, ignore the blurb that the site inserted from Carl H., Rochester, MI
    the cooler line reversal. The factory service manual, page 7-19, clearly
    designates the
    TOP oil cooler nipple as the INLET and the BOTTOM oil cooler nipple as the
    RETURN. The routing should be as I indicated in the article. Carl's
    explanation is
    rediculous anyway as when the engine is cold the thermostat is closed and
    radiator is not hot.

    Chrysler trannies have adaptive clutches - the computer detects slip
    and orders up more hydraulic pressure. My guess is that yours is
    gone too far for anti-slip stuff to work.

    Auto transmissions are wear items - most of them will eventually break
    down (heavy-duty designs not-withstading).

    How often should we be flushing the 41TE tranmissions?

    You really don't NEED to flush it if you maintain it well and do nothing
    dumb like put Dexron or some goofy one size fits all fluid in them.
    Otherwise if you follow the severe schedule and do a pan drop with new OEM
    quality filter (on a 20k schedule) they will go a long time.
