intrepid problems 94.
say being new to this forum and to save a bunch of time i would like to ask the group a question about my 94 intrepid? I'm not the 94intrepid guy boy he asked for that. i have a 94 with 166,000 on it. i don't know if the trans is the first one or not but a few years ago it started the typical slipping shuddering etc. i changed the fluid filter and installed a shift kit. i put in fluid from Chrysler dealer. the problem did not improve until the shift kit, but now it has this problem of when i start it cold (in the morning or after work) it will go into gear and after i drive for a short distance say about 1/8 mile, when i stop it slips into neutral? like feel. if i give it gas it will slip but if i come to a complete stop and sit for say 2-5 seconds it drops back into gear and continues on without any problems. until the next cold startup cycle. now i think it just may be old age setting and i hear that the early transmissions had some problems like this. if there may be a fix that i can do that would be nice but if not then my options may be to replace it.
now that i may be looking at replacing this trans what year trans should i be looking for? i hear the later trans's were corrected.
also if i do decide to replace it what would be the better way to approach it from the bottom or remove engine-trans an a unit? thanks bob
