[quote="bobby lancaster"]Transmission problem
1996 Chrysler Cirrus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 170000 miles
when engine is cold I have drive and reverse, as soon as the engine gets hot I have no drive or reverse. Fluid is over filled maybe 1/4 to 1/2 qt. The trans fluid is dark, some material in pan. There is no check engine light. The coolant is coming out of the overflow and radiator cap. Looks like thermostat is opening. Coolant pressure builds up fans kicks on then hose relaxes, but coolant still comes out the overflow and cap. Probly two different problems. I think the torque converter is bad. Not getting a check engine lite so the TCC should be ok. Could not find a test port to check the pressure. I'll probly have to tear the transmission down to inspect. Could you send me exploded view of valve body and enternal trans and torque specs. Its 2.5 eng. W/overdrive trans.
