I put 1 at of Tran fluid and 3 ways of oil. The van could run well for a long time without the lockup working and all you'd see is a slight drop in fuel economy. But, jumping straight to this conclusion without inspecting the transmission fluid and wiring can cause a lot of undue headache. Let us know other codes or problems? The automatic transmission may have a hard time maintaining the right gear, failing to downshift one acceleration, for example, or taking too long to upshift when speed would normally warrant it. If the fluid is a rough color, or worse you find metal flakes in it, that can be a sign that the transmission is going out. The same two codes just came back. I know of People that have had these two codes and have spent thousands of dollars for a transmission overhaul.
Any help would be appreciated. . Is it worth sinking a transaxle rebuild into? How bad is it if it is not? If there is an underlying transmission code, the only way to get it might be with a factory scan tool. You'll have to have the codes cleared and the transmission relearned for shift feel, at that point. Let us know any modifications add ons or aftermarket parts. If you get no other code it means that the transmission control circuit is malfunctioning. I am not one who could afford a new tranny.
Rob- Well, the low voltage would have wiped the adaptive memory in the transmission controller. I have to restart few times before shifting to drive gear. A used transaxle is a gamble. Do some diagnosis before replacing anything. There are many symptoms of.
But overall it's not a really hard job, all things considered - hope it also fixes your problem. The following day the problem went away after the 2nd start. P2723 is Clutch Pressure Control Solenoid 5 Performance or Stuck Off. Code 700 just means there are fault codes in the Transmission Computer. I have a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan with 85,000 miles that is displaying P0O700 and P0740 codes. Did you lose transmission fluid or pinch a cooler line or something like that? Possible Solutions For a P0700 the only real solution is to acquire a scan tool that will communicate with the transmission control module.
It sounds like yours has no engagement at all. These flakes clog shift solenoids and the valve bodies and can result in the P0700 code. Next few days the transmission stayed in second gear no matter which forward gear it's shifted into. Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. If the converter stays unlocked, it can be a nuisance. How bad is it if it is not? They want to recreate the problem.
Cobalt seems to have some problems with the transmission output speed sensor connector. The P0700 may be because of the P0740 fault code. Please tell me what is the problem and how to fix the problem or I have to bring to the dealer? As previously posted the Internal Transmission Controller, is this something the do it yourselfer can do and where is it located on the vehicle? In either case, you should check your automatic transmission fluid level and condition. Your thoughts based upon what I mentioned? I have not driven or 30 mph. When you replaced the battery, did you also check that the alternator is working well, at least 13.
I got the true reading from auto zone, transmission shop couldnt get right reading for a year and a half, try auto zone first, they can pinpoint your problem and its free, good luck Mar 01, 2009. Most of them are going to need an experts touch to diagnose. Simple code readers used by most auto parts stores won't access anything other than Engine Computers. What ever you do treat any suggestion of a new transmission with a grain of salt until you are shown proof positive that you need one. If it's throwing this code, there is a strong likelihood that the clutch packs are damaged. Causes More often then not, the cause of this code is that there is a transmission problem of some kind.
I asked about bench-testing the solenoid pack because I figured you could better see the action of the solenoids. Will yor scanner allow transmission mod. I wanted to ask about that. I cleared the code and it came back within a few minutes. However the problem reoccur after a couple of days.
Need help with a P0700 code? If the fluid is low or bad, replacing should be considered an urgent priority. When P0700 registers by itself can be tricky. I also removed both speed sensors and cleaned them off. Grrr what could the problem be?? I hope this post saves People from being taken on costly transmission work! Torque Converter The torque converter itself or torque converter clutch can go bad and throw the P0740 code. I have done a 100 amp load test on the battery and it reads good, 12. However, much like the engine itself, the automatic transmission has been significantly upgraded, including electronic monitoring and controls for every aspect of upshifting and downshifting.
