I had a new (rebuilt) transmission put in our 2000 Voyager (174000 miles) and it shifts oddly. Is there any way to reset the "shift points," which, I understand are controlled by the computer?

I am no expert, but I believe the transmission is supposed to "remember" your driving habits and set shift points accordingly. In other words, if you drive like there's an egg between your sole and the gas pedal, the transmission will shift earlier (to a higher gear) and then remember that and shift earlier in the future. Similarly, if you are a lead foot, then the transmission will stay in lower gears and shift later. It will remember that you drive fast and shift later in the future.

I had the drive belt tensioner replaced and that fixed the problem. Thank you for the advice.

This manual does NOT COVER All-Wheel Drive nor Alternative Fuel Models.
It compares favorably with other Haynes manuals for conciseness, clarity of both written instructions and photographs and is thorough. I used it step by step to replace horns, headlight bulbs and to go through a 30,000 mile check up and service. I also checked itís description for changing wiper blades, oil and oil filters, air filters and general repairs and found it both accurate and easy to understand.
Iíve been happy with Haynes manuals over the years and recommend all vehicle owners purchase one even if you donít expect to do any repair or service yourself. It helps to know the information, to be aware of how your car works and to talk in a reasonably intelligent manner (on your part anyway) when you take your vehicle in for service.
Iím happy with this purchase.

We are experiencing the same noise. Did you get any advice or help on your question? What did you end up doing?
#2386 of 2390 Evap System Leak Trouble Shooting
Jan 15, 2012 (9:33 am)
I was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to pressurize the fuel tank (with low pressure through the cap) so that the pressure would feed back toward the engine, causing a hissing sound enabling an easier way to pinpoint the system leak.
I have in the past found and repaired Evap System leaks due to bad hoses. They were always straight forward & located in the hoses up under the driver's seat area around the pump & valve/box area. This does not seem to be the case this time.
Due to physical limitation from health issues, I am trying to avoid placing the van up on 4 stands & removing obstructions to hand & visually inspect every line in the Evap/Fuel line system.
It seems to me that this should be possible by adapting an old cap to put the air into the tank, but I do not know if this approach could damage any parts.
Any input would be appreciated.
