Country: United StatesMake: ChryslerModel: 300M SpecialYear: 2002Engine: 3.5
how many miles is on the car?
are you there?
83852, it origanaly had a problem w it going into limp home after 5-10 miles codes then were p0700,p0841,p1776,p0871,p0562. i changed the solenoid block pack w a new unit, and test drove got all monitors ready for inspection, wich they all passed and no codes, after 80 miles however i have this problem w it now
do you have all gears?
it just down shifts hard?
yes all gears just down shifts hard from i believe 3-2
has the transmission ever been rbuilt?
not to my knowledge, my customer just purcased this not to long ago so im sure they dont know either
corect no codes
when you first installed the new solenoid block,,,did it do this?
actualy if it did it was not this noticable, it is much worse now
what brand solinds did you use?
i mean the brand,,,the company that built the block
oh sorry that i do not know
its actualy a reman unit sorry
here is my thoughts on this
if the transmission has ever been rebuilt..
we like to use a transgo shift kit in these
if it has been done,,there is one hole you can drill in the valvebody plate that will cause a quick 3-2 downshift
but,,it still should not be real noticeable
i think your problem,,is still the solenoids
replace the block again..
i would recomend using the borge warner block
it is very common to get a bad solenoid block for these,,,
we have much better luck with the borge warner brand
i would think this is the problem here sense you dont get a code
