Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.
It does sound like a bad pump or you have sludge in the motor causing a flow restriction.
Here’s the sequence of events I follow:
Check fluid level and color.Make appropriate repairs.
Check shift solenoids with a scan tool in bidirectional mode if applicable. Shift solenoids are inside the transmission and this is the easiest way to check them.
Drop pan and inspect for excessive metal shavings inside pan.
Check valve body and clutches visually.
Hopefully you may not have to go this far, maybe you just were a bit low on fluid.
If you do have sludge buildup in the motor, there are many good chemicals out there that work great for flushing out the oil, so don't panic thinking you have a serious problem when you really don't.
Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars and keep this link in case you need me again later on.
