Dodge Spirit ProblemsTransmission Control Module May Fail
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. If the TCM is replaced the pinion factor should be reset and the quick learn procedure performed.
A noise from the rear suspension may be noted at slow speeds over uneven road surfaces. This can be caused by a cracked or broken rear torsion bar. A damaged torsion bar will require replacement.
A clicking noise may develop from the left front of the vehicle that varies with vehicle speed. Our technicians tell us that the cause may be the output gear bolt and stirrup contacting the rear cover of the transaxle. The repair involves replacing the transaxle rear cover, fluid filter, and any damaged output gear retention components.
