This is a common problem with Chrysler corp transmissions. This is called "limp mode". It was designed to help you get home in the event of trouble. The transmission comunicates with the transmission, When it sense's a problem it goes into limp mode. The only thing to do is take it to a transmission shop and pay for the diagnosis. 90 percent of the time the transmission needs to be rebuilt of replaced from about 75000 miles and up.
You may just need to have the fluid and filter changed. Do you have a lot of miles on the car? That's the first thing I would do. It's also the cheapest route to go.
I can't recall where I read this at originally (it was online but it was a reliable source, that much I recall at least) but the problem may be a defective aluminum seal in the transmission. It lets in moisture. To repair you will need to completely drain and dry the transmission then fill it up with tranny fluid. It's not good enough to simply drain the transmission. You must open it up and let it fully dry. To stop this problem from recurring replace the alumiinum seal with a steel one (they are less likely to warp in hot and cold conditions). Any reliable auto repair shot that specializes in transmissions should know of this problem and how to fix it. Just ask them about a bad seal in ultradrive transmissions and if they can drain, dry and replace the seal. See below for more info (nothing on the moisture part specifically though, sorry).
I would say the biggest size rims you should put on a 1994 Chrysler Fifth Avenue or a New Yorker would be 20 inch rims.
That happens when the transmission computer detects a malfunction and sets a code. It defaults to safe mode which is second gear. You need to have the codes read.
Yes, a service manual would have that diagram.
mine was doing the same. a vacume hose was diconnected
Look in the glove box. That would be my best bet
Anything is possible. It would not be a direct swap.
It is not a direct fit. Would take lots of modifications.
does it happen a few seconds after you start the car? on my 1988 new yorker,it was the hydrolic pump that is on the right side of the trunk. i just unpluged it.
you've either lost both taillight bulbs, or, more likely, you've blown the taillight fuse.
I don,t know I am searching for an answer for my 1994 email@example.com
I had a Chrysler transmission rebuild by Cottman for $400 but that was a few years ago. I would think that the price would have have gone up. I would say about 6 or 700 to rebuild one. Just service such as changing the fluid doesn't cost much.
check transmission fluid level
Install 10w30 until you find out for sure. If you had an owner's manual you would have your answer. Dealer, Salvage Yard, E-Bay, and many on-line sites are sources. One good site is: http://www.samarins.com/maintenance/manual.html -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Added Brandon: I have a 1990 Chrysler New Yorker 3.3L V6 and my manual says 5w30 or 10w30.
Assuming you have a serpentine belt on that 3.3L engine, the tension on the alternator would be controlled by the idler (tension) pulley. The alternator is stationary.
It is one of many possible causes.It is one of many possible causes.
Does the electric fuel pump turn on when the key is turned to the on position? If yes, then check the coil. Otherwise, you would need to provide more information.
If memory serves me right, you will find it inside the intake air duct. They put it there so the incoming air for the engine would cool the unit.
TCM Malfunction, And/Or Speedometer Sensor Malfunction.
check the ignition coil probably becomes open circuit when hot
I would try the glove box, or under the steering wheel area. I have a 1991 and my fuse box is in my glove box. Hope this works for you.
Sounds like the timing is off.
There might be air bubbles in the actual pump. You might have to remove it, shake it so the bubbles can get out of there, fill it slowly and reinstall it.
i have the same problem in my 90 imperial. drivers side lock will not disengage the system . have to use the passenger side. Any ideas 1990 Chrysler new yorker, transmission was just replaced, the anti theft device, security light is flashing the the car will not start. I too am having the same problem in my 1991 New Yorker. Anybody know how I can disable it? I have the same problem with my 94 new yorker, will someone please help me and tell me how to disarm the system so that my car will start? I have to wait 24 hours sometimes for it to reset itself. My best suggestion is to check the switches on the back of the door key cylinder to see if it is still hooked up. i just had the same problem with my 93 Chrysler new yorker. the alarm would not disarm. i got a can of PB BLASTER and sprayed inside the door locks on both sides. whatever was frozen up, released. i put the key in the drivers door, locked and unlocked it and the alarm disarmed. the car started right up.
