Chrysler Caravan/Voyager/Town and Country 1996-1999
See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7
FIG : Fig. 1: In order for the transaxle to be removed from the vehicle, an engine support must be used
WARNING If the vehicle is going to be rolled on its own wheels while the transaxle is out of the vehicle, obtain two outer CV-joints to install to the hubs. If the vehicle is rolled without the proper torque applied to the front wheel bearings, the bearings will be destroyed.
FIG : Fig. 3: After the cable is disconnected, remove it from the bracket
FIG : Fig. 5: Use the crankshaft damper nut to rotate the engine clockwise to access the torque converter bolts CL
FIG : Fig. 7: With the transaxle secured to the jack, remove the engine mounts
WARNING If the torque converter has been replaced, a torque converter clutch break-in procedure must be performed. This procedure will reset the transaxle control module break-in status. Failure to perform this procedure may cause transaxle shutter. To properly do this, a DRB or equivalent scan tool, is required to read or reset the break-in status.
Gearshift Cable Adjustment
See Figure 8
Normal operation of the Park/Neutral position switch provides a quick check to confirm proper linkage adjustment.
Move the gear selector lever slowly forward until it clicks into the Park position. The starter should operate when the ignition switch is turned to the START position.
After checking the Park position, move the selector slowly toward the Neutral position, until the lever drops into the N position. If the starter will also operate at this point, the gear shift linkage is properly adjusted. If the starter fails to operate in either position, linkage adjustment is necessary, as follows:
