My 2009 Town & Country seems that the tranny is slipping, you go on the gas pedal and no power and only the RPM go faster. Id good like to check the tranny oil, but....
With an scanner you can find some codes about tranny?
Are there any other thing to do?
Sep 03, 2013 (3:31 pm)
One of my first questions was if an scanner can read transmission codes? and in that way know if it is slipping or has any other issue?

So I dont know what to do: the fact its that the van sometimes works as normal and sometimes the tranny seems to slip, so IDK; thats the reason Im asking here the possibilities that are producing the issue.
I read a little of this thread and I think that a solenoid could be the culprit, could it be?
Thanks in advance.

It could definitely be 1 or more solenoids are either sticking or have failed. You can get transmission codes from most newer vehicles if the scanner & vehicle are set up to give those. You can go to most autoparts stores like autozone or pepboys & they will read the codes out for you.

Trans works fine until you slow to a stop, it then bangs into 1st gear. Just changed fluid and filter. It still does it! Any suggestions!

You can try running seafoam tranny treatment in it for a week, then do a second drain and fill & filter replacement. Only use Chrysler 4 tranny fluid. One of the plastic solenoids is more then likely gummed up or failing.

Having the same issues with my 2008. My transmission "jumps" all the time when at a low speed. The dealership can never find a problem and blamed my driving habits.

Hi. I have a 2002 Chrysler town n country that is doing the exact same thing as your van. I'm wondering if you found out what was wrong? We are trying to figure it out as well...

Looking for an update on this. My 2008 Town & Country is doing the same thing for past few weeks, yet the check engine light is NOT coming on and dealership says no codes are showing in the system. Wants to bill me $98 diagnostic fee since they can't prove there is a problem to treat under warranty...so they want me to pay even though they've done nothing to try to fix it. Suggestions?

My 2008 T&C was jumping from 1st to 2nd and I took it in for the 60 month inspection. They didn't find anything wrong with it. Now it grinds when going from 1st to 2nd and when downshifting from 2nd to 1st. Also at speeds less than 10mph it grinds the entire time. This is whether it is in automatic or autostick. I will try to post an update on Monday or Tuesday, when they let me know what they will do. I hope it is covered under the lifetime powertrain warranty.

Our new van has a noise that occurs at 18mph when slowing down. After multiple visits to the dealer, it was determined that the redesigned, square cut gears are the culprit. When asked what can be done to get rid of this nuisance, we have been told NOTHING CAN BE DONE. I am totally disappointed in Chrysler for not letting a customer be aware of the noise at time of purchase since nothing can be done to correct this design defect. I would have looked at other options if I had been given an honest response. Now I have a vehicle that has a persistent, irritating noise that should not be there yet nothing can be done to correct it. Not the quality that I had hoped for.
