My Chrysler 300m goes into drive until it shifts into first

Customer Question

Hi - my Chrysler 300m goes into drive until it shifts into first gear then stops. Wont go into reverse at all. This was a sudden change without any warning signs. Any idea?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I'm assuming it's actually second gear that you've lost. The same cultch hub trasmits power from the reverse and 2/4 clutches, if the sun gear on the back of this hub breaks then you'll lose second and reverse.

Does it take off fine from a stop but then freewheels when it tries to shift the first time?
