Transmission Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.
I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and other repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as needed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there, and to be honest with today's electronics a scantool may very well be needed to retrieve the codes or to monitor data to see what's going on...
The first thing I would suggest doing even before dropping the pan would be to see what codes are in the TCM with a scantool.. You have a 41TE transmission and it has it's own TCM to control it and being fully electronic it will set codes if it doesn't shift correctly and with these codes I wcan tell you about what happened and how to repair it, but it's anyones guess until you have the codes read.. To be honest of the transmission is not burnt up then I would guess it's a bad solenoid pack because I have replaced quite a few of them but then again it could be a bad TCM.... Once you get the codes post them here and I will give you my best advise on where to go from here..
You could swing by any parts store and they can read the code free of charge, but I'd rather not guess and tell you to replace the solenoid pack and you still have the same issues... This is the proper way to diagnose and repair your vehicle...
Keep me posted,
Are you still here?
