I just replaced the CVT. 2.4L automatic. seems to be in low
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
how can I tell if the transmission is in the right gear?
Dodge Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 2 years ago

HI,

Ok, I have uploaded directions to adjust the shift cable. As to telling what gear, the transmission range switch usually has the gears labeled on it(PNR1234). If not, then you would need a scan tool with live data to tell what gear the transmission range switch is actually in.

Eric; there is a ticking noise & it seems like its in low gear. I bought a reman the converter was factory installed and came with a temp.brace
Dodge Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 2 years ago
HI,
Ok, place it in Drive and see what position the transmission range switch shows to be in. If it is not showing to be in Drive, then you need to adjust the cable.
If it is, then this could be an issue with it being in reduced power mode, which in that case, we need to scan for fault codes. Or it could be that the transmission you got is defective due to bad remanufacturing job or defective parts

Eric; trouble codes; pressure control B, crankshaft position, transmission control malfunction, manufacture control pending
Dodge Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 2 years ago
HI,
Ok, check the wiring to the transmission for any signs of crimping or breaks due to wiring harness being caught on something during the transmission installation.
If ok, then either the solenoid is faulty or the tcm is faulty, but if these codes were not present before the transmission installation, we can safely assume it is the solenoid. This means it is a defective part installed when the remanufacture company rebuilt this particular transmission and therefore should be covered by their warranty.
You will need to call them on how to handle it. Some will only warranty if you pull the tranny and send it back to them. Some will ship you a new solenoid and reimburse you for the labor, and some will have you buy the solenoid and you send them repair order and they reimburse you for the cost of the part and labor.
The cranksensor code may simply be due to the transmission issue, so this should be resolved first. Then if the crank code returns, replace it.

Eric; the fluid I put in is for cvt, but dodge says to use cvtf+ 4. also I put in 7 quarts, I believe it holds 9. The note that came with the transmission says it is partially full of fluid. could there be too much?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
How do you check the fluid level. there is no dipstick.
Dodge Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 2 years ago
HI,
the cvt fluid is fine for it. If there was too much fluid, usually you have slippage, just like if there is too little fluid, not being stuck in low gear. It wouldnt hurt to check the level, but I dont believe this is the issue.
There is a dipstick tube with a cap on it. You have to buy a special dipstick from Chrysler to use with this. It has markings on it that you compare to a chart that corresponds to fluid temperature, which is monitored with scan tool. It is a pain on this one
While possible it could be the wiring harness being crimped from installation, I more suspect that this is simply a defective pressure control solenoid. If stuck, the pressures are incorrect and wont allow it to shift out of low.

Eric; where is the solenoid located?
Dodge Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 2 years ago
HI,
It is part of the solenoid/pressure switch pack assembly, which is itself incorporated into the valve body. Which means you have to remove the whole valve body assembly, which means pulling the transmission again.
Personally, I would call the manufacturer and have another transmission sent. You dont know what else may be defective in this one that might fail shortly down the road. I would hate to pull the transmission, replace the valve body, then 1000 miles down the road have something else fail and have to pull again.
