Hello, everyone. I just joined. I purchased a 2001 Town and Country 3.3 L from a neighbor back in 2008-ran great and I think they had taken good care of it. It ran great for me until 2014 when at 142K miles, the transmission started to have problems. I don't know if I noticed anything until one day (if my memory serves me well) the van seemed to lose power. I pulled into a parking lot near my home, waited for a few minutes. When I restarted the car and tried to back out, I noticed I had no reverse. A couple of men pushed me backwards and I was able to drive to a nearby store. I was advised to get some transmission fluid to add, which I did. (I know more about that now--I am not even sure it was properly checked.) I drove it home and again, may have improperly added more fluid. Now it is overfull and I know how to remove the excess fluid, which I will do. I let the van sit for the past 8 years! When I looked at it a few days ago, I checked all fluids and that's when I noticed it was overfull on the ATF. I was able to start the van after installing a new battery and cleaning the battery cables, and the engine sounds really good. When I put it into gear, the reverse does not engage, sometimes makes no sound and sometimes maybe a very soft grinding noise. I did not have the space to move but I was able to put it into Drive and move it forward a couple of inches. I have read a great deal online, I am not trained in automotive but I have actually worked on my other working vehicle a few times. A good friend of mine who noticed the malfunctions believed the problem may be in the solenoid. I never dropped the pan or changed the filter and I am inclined to do that--and also considering changing the solenoid with a kit. I believe I can do that in my driveway. After researching on the internet, it seems some mechanics seem to lean towards getting rid of the transmission whereas others seem to think that changing the fluid, filter, and maybe the solenoid, too, can have dramatic improvements in the function of the transmission. Before I order the solenoid, I will try to check the electrical connections for that. I looked under the van, and if I was not mistaken, it appears that trans pan and solenoid are covered in oil. What I was hoping for is for someone could interpret the codes TOGETHER as they relate to different features and to answer the $64,000 question: If I do the fixes/maintenance I am quite willing to do--is there a decent chance I can take my van for a nice ride or will I have to junk it. I am not willing to rebuild the transmission. Thank you in advance.
