Customer Question
We just changed the...

We just changed the kick down solenoid on my 2004 Durango 4x4 per the check engine code. Now the car will not shift at all any ideas on next step?

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have the trouble code? Do you have a code reader or scan tool?

Took it into auto zone and they diagnosed it as bad kick down solenoid so we replaced the solenoid shift block

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll pass this info along to the Dodge Mechanic so that he can get you a quick fix. Are you fixing your Durango yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes we replaced the shift solenoid block and all the filters

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Car was shifting just missing second gear now we have no shifting

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.
