1997 Plymouth Breeze 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 115000 miles
1997 Plymouth Breeze, 2.0L, 115000 miles, just replaced the solenoid, torque converter, and rebuilt the transmission. It is leaking trans fluid, but I think it is because the front seal did not seat properly, so will need to drop tranny again and replace this. However, the transmission still seems to be having issues. It started by shifting a little funny, and now I think it is in Limp Mode. My son is in automotive school and rebuilt the tranny with some help, and his transmission teacher wants him to pull the codes (since the Check Engine light is on) so that he can give him advice on what needs to be done. Is there a way to pull the codes myself without a scan tool? I don't really want to drive it to the auto parts store to pull the codes and possibly make the tranny worse.
One other thing, I realize that there is a Quick-learn procedure that needs to be done since we did all this work on the tranny. Could the fact that we had not done this yet be the reason for the transmission not shifting properly, and maybe even why it is now in Limp Mode? My son's teacher seems to think there is something else wrong in the transmission, but I am thinking that it is simply a matter of getting the Quick-learn procedure done. (After the front seal is fixed, of course!)
Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated!
have the same problem?
