Chrysler Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
The code you have is P0944-LOSS OF PRIME which means the pump has failed and damaged the transmission.. I agree you will need to pull it out to inspect the damage and at the very least replace the front pump..
Glad I could help and don't forget the rating!!!
Have a great day,
Code 35 is invalid as we go by P1234 codes such as the P0944..
The pump supplies fluid pressure and when it fails it will take out a transmission. Anytime I see a loss of prime and it will not move it's a guaranteed it will need to come out...
Glad I could help,
You said the symptoms went away, so it's working fine now? If it's not moving the pump has failed and it very likely will not move again... To test the pump you will need a scantool to monitor the pressure and if it's 0 when you start and rev the engine then the pump is bad and will need to be pulled.. If the pump has failed then it could have caused components in your transmission to loose lubrication thus you have metal in the pan which could clog the filter...
If it will not move then it will need to come out..
I hope this helps and don't forget the rating,
When it stops pulling if you have P0944 then I wuld suggest replacing the pump before it damages your transmission if it hasn't allready which you will be able to tell from debri in the pan...
The P0944 will need to be active to run the tests...
I see you haven't rated yet.. Do you need more help?
The link you posted was not me reply... And the filter could be clogged causing the pump to starve of fluid which would cause the code.... But if you have changed the filter /fluid then that will be the only thing you can try and if it does it again you will at least need a new pump.
