#3569 of 4276 2000 chrysler voyager transmission
Jan 07, 2006 (12:47 pm)
2000 chrysler voyager 3.0 liter v6
My wife noticed transmission slipping and parked the van.
I had it towed to a garage so they can take a look at it on monday.I hooked up my obd2 reader and got these codes:
p0700:transmission control system malfunction
p1782:P/ES circuit out of self test range
P0732:incorrect 2nd gear ratio
p0733:incorrect 3rd gear ratio
p1784:transmission mechanical failure-first and reverse.
My wild guess is that the transmission is pretty much shot ain't it?
Anybody have ideas about costs of rebuild or any advice to maybe a swap?

#3572 of 4276 smoke from solenoid..??
Jan 07, 2006 (5:24 pm)
I have a 91 voyager 3.3 v-6 and i had a flat and drove a little while on it until the tire came off the rim...so i called tow truck and waited 3 hours in the cold and during which i ran the heat intermittantly but the next day the battery was dead..i tried to jump the attery and it started right up and when i went to rev up the gas to keep it started the gas pedal stuck all the way to the ground!! we turned it off and tried to start it back up but it was completely dead again. So when we tried to jump it again i saw smoke come from out of where the air filter is..after further review it loks like smoke is coming from where the solenoid would be..what can i do to fix this? and which solenoid is that?? and why would it not hold a charge?? thanks

not yet still don't have a clue. I did read something in the chiltons manual that says if the distrubutor isn't sending out a signal that the auto shutdown relay will turn off the fuel pump but not sure haven't even done anything with it in a couple days. still waiting to see if anyone has any ideas.

I don't know if you yourself can disable it, but a dealership can hook the van up to their hand-held computer and disable it. You may want to call them. If you try this, I would make sure the remote worked before I left the dealership. Also, maybe the dealership can give you clues to what may be wrong.
I guess the real question here is, are you sure you installed the remote correctly?

Hey gang, just to underscore what has been said fairly often here about just how clean synthetic oil keeps the innards of an engine, I posted a couple of pictures on my Yahoo! photo album. These two pictures (actually one photo that has a small section copied out for easier viewing) are of the valve cover oil filler hole and the rocker arm below of our 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan with the 3.8 liter mill. I don't recall exactly when I converted it over to synthetic oil, but it was most certainly before the 20,000 mile mark and has had nothing but Mobil 1 (in various weights and formulations) since. Also, I have been less than religious about my OCIs, which have ranged from the factory recommendation of 7,500 miles to well over 12,000 miles in a couple of cases.
Once in my album, click on "Caravan Stuff" and then click on the last photo DGC3.8-104K.jpg for the detail view of the rocker arm assembly. Interestingly enough, it has been about 4,000 miles since I changed the oil and as can clearly be seen in the small pool of oil in the rocker arm, the oil is still almost as clear as the day I poured it in.

WOW!!! amazing pics.....I don't put a lot of miles on my cars since I try to abuse my freebie company car. But I should swicth over!! When I get an oil change, all I have to do is specifically ask for mobile one??
Also, how effective is your "high speed spoiler" at speeds over 125 mph???

"Also, how effective is your "high speed spoiler" at speeds over 125 mph???"
Hehe, that was just a static wind tunnel test, unfortunately it melted before I was able to get it on the road for a good quality road test.
Regarding the Mobil 1, I normally do my own oil changes and as such, I really don't know who has it available as a generally stocked oil, other than a Mobile station that is.

Some cars have a automatic shut off for the electric fuel pump. It is there in case of an accident so that fuel does not continue to be pumped and possibly creating a fire. On the 96 van this relay is located under the hood in the power distribution box. It is the large rectangular box on the drivers side of the van. The cover comes off and should show the location of the relays. On the 96 van the ASD (automatic shut down) relay is located at the bottom left and the fuel pump relay is located just above it. I hope this helps.
