Default 41TE issues

Evening!

Fortunately, not on my car. But my parents have an '05 Grand Caravan that has a 41TE, like my car. Lately, it slips when going into reverse and first. All other gears work fine, shifting up and down. It's got a 700 and 740 code, last time I checked. Fluid is clean and full. I suspect the shift solenoid. Any ideas? I'm thinking of trying a junkyard part.

Try the solenoid pack. Just make sure the area on your folks trans is real clean... no dirt falling down in the ports.. Blow it out real good before your pull the solenoid pack. U-Pull will be the cheapest place...

P0740 code is torque convertor clutch malfunction.
P0700 is a generic transmission trouble code.

How many miles on it?

Has anyone ever changed or added fluid to it? The 41TE takes Mopar ATF+4 fluid only. Any other type of fluid will eff it up.

They've had it since new. It has 204,000 on it, it was rebuilt once at 80,000. It's got full, clean fluid. Various brands, but only ever certified ATF+4.

When I first looked this up only certain brands were acceptable for the Pt Cruisers by the manufacture.

I'd start by dropping the trans pan and seeing how much grunge is there. Also check the filter for grunge and replace it. Clean the pan. About 5 quarts of ATF is required. Start with 3 qts. and stick it.

Changing the solenoid pack with a used [unknown functioning] pack is a gamble. A new aftermarket one is about $60 [?]. There are little round screens in the solenoid pack passages. Look to see if they are plugged.They can be cleaned. Check wire connector carefully for corrosion.

It's not his PT, Steve, he's referring to his parents 2005 Grand Caravan.

Thanks Chuzz
I met to say that a specific vehicle manufacture might only recommend certain brand transmission oil like the Pt Cruisers.
