Customer reply replied 1 year ago
According to my son in law he said it might be the transmission computer code, because my transmission replaced 2014. Yesterday i let the mechanic to tune up my car. He replaced the wire and the spark plugs and also replaced the transmission filter. Then after that test drive the car. The transmission is not really accelerating the way it use to. Seems like having a hard time to accelerate and engine is so loud when i pressed it hard...smell smoke. Please can you tell me what is the cause?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
it's been light on for a year or more. I brought my car to a 2 different shop to fix it, but still the same. Even though they change some part that might help to stop the engine light on.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The first thing that needs to be done is determine what fault codes are setting, diagnose and repair those issues. Do you know what P codes are currently setting?

Sorry for the delay response. I don't know what P code is. What do I need to do to find out?
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

A scan tool or code reader needs to be connected to the data link connector to communicate with the powerrtain control module and see what fault codes are currently setting.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
