1999 Chrysler Town and Country 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 169000 miles
My father's Dodge has been having some transmission difficulties, and I am trying to decide where to go next.
In the speed ranges of 40 to 55 mph, the transmission shifts in and out of overdrive to drive and creates a shudder in the vehicle. Speeds above and below that it is fine. Also a couple of weeks ago the engine would die as soon he put it in gear, but that problem remedied itself the very same day. (Lock-up torque converter?) The transmission has fault codes of P0700 and P0736. With the number of miles on the van, I am afraid it is the sign of a dying transmission, but if it is the PCM or a snsor or relay I would like to go there first. I am going to drive 450 miles to help him out later in the week, any expeditied help would be appreciated. Many thanks!
