Hi ! I have an old Dodge 1 ton van from 1994- has lots of miles on it and
continuing its descent to beaterdom. Lately has had a hesitation in
driveline at highway speeds - thought it was ignition but seemed more
mechanical. After checking trans fluid level, I added a pint and problem
disappeared for 200 miles. Now problem is back. Fluid level OK. I
wondered if this was lockup for torque conv. kicking in and out? It
doesnt seem related to 4rth gear but not positive. Anyway, can I
disconnect torque conv. lockup circuit? Or, any ideas? thanx, bob d.
Get a Ford, and you wont have that problem.. Dodge transmissions are
RENOWNED for being just giant POS's... LOL As you can tell, I am not a fan
of dodge auto trans. NONE of them have ever been very good or reliable..
Just about anyone I talk to that owns a dodge vehicle that is over 4yrs old
has had their trans replaced atleast once, if not two or three times...
Sounds to me like you have one of their transmissions and its pulling the
same ole'... Best to take it to a trans shop, I bet yer lookin at a rebuild
or new trans for your van...
