My van won't always shift gears. It's an automatic, 3.8L, V6.
Where is the speed sensor located? on 1996 Chrysler Town & Country
it may or maynot be your problem. there is an spped sensor on the front side of the trans. get it checked before you throw expensive parts at it.
Very good suggestion...what I wanted to hear because I was thinking about that myself. Never done this though so, will I need to drain the tranny in order to change it if it's bad?
NO, Just raise the front of the vehicle, place a pan under the front on the transmission oil pan and replace the sensor.
