1998 Plymouth Voyager transmission

  1. Sorry if this is a duplicate post - I couldn't find in archives.

    I have a Voyager van with about 175,000 kilometres on it (about 125K
    miles ??).

    I live in the snow belt. In the morning and sporadically the
    transmission will act up. It will go into reverse or drive and work
    fine for a bit. At the first stop - about a block - the transmission
    feels as it goes into neutral. Press the gas and the engine races.
    After a minute the transmission will engage and the van is fine for
    the rest of the day. It is not slipping - it is just like it is in

    Any thoughts before I go the the shop and they suggest a $2000 rebuild

    Check the fluid level, it could be low on fluid. It could also be caused by
    a dirty trans filter, when was the fluid and filter last serviced. If you have
    an electronicaly controlled trans you might want to have it scanned for codes.

  3. Thanks Mike:

    Fluid was first thing checked - sorry not to note it. It has been
    recently changed - but not the filter. I guess I can do that but
    didn't want to if the thought if the whole transmission has gone
