Chrysler New Yorker ProblemsEngine Start and Stall and/or Transmission Stuck in Second Gear
Vehicles may develop a start and die out condition or a transmission that defaults to second gear. Our technicians tell us that the transmission control module (TCM) may be at fault and require replacement. Our technicians tell us that if the TCM is replaced the pinion factor should be reset and the quick learn procedure performed.
Incorrect, worn, or contaminated automatic transmission fluid can cause shifting issues, noted mostly at speeds over 40mph. Our technicians tell us that repairs to correct this condition include changing the fluid and filter, driving the vehicle for 10miles and changing the fluid a second time.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate along with erratic shifting of the automatic transmission. Our technicians tell us that oil contamination or wire terminal damage at the transmission output speed sensor could be the cause.
