Hi guys, its me again :-(

Dodge Grand Caravan V6 3.3L 1993 model with a 41TE automatic transmisson box. Yesterday, when my wife was driving it, it slipped out of gear.

I got to the car and tried to drive. I gave 50% of max throttle before it got into gear. Drove for 30 meters and it slipped again. Buzzing/whining noise, not shure if it comes from the transmission or the torque converter. I just towed it home.

I ran a diagnose with an OTC 4000 enhanced scanner og the transmission and got "LR press SW chk". Anyone knows what it might be?

Low/Reverse pressure switch chek or something?

The car starts normally, but will only go into gear "seldomly", if you know what I mean.

Problem came suddenly, with no warning, but the car have had a little "shacking" when shifting from 3 to overdrive in uphill driving.

None of the warning lights are on.

I know it may seem blindingly ovbious, but check the fluid level, [In park, engine running], I had one a few weeks ago same symptoms, low fluid caused by a rusting fluid pan, Regards, T

I was told by a fellow recovery driver that there's a seal that goes in the rear of the box and dumps the pressure if that's any help ,

If It's got wheels or tits your gunna have trouble with it ..

Well, actually, I feel a little silly now...

I took off the oilpan for the transmission box and pressurized the tubes (on top) for the oilcooler and emptyed the oil it as good as I could.

New filter on, new transmission fluid, connected Matco scanner, ran actuator test, switch test (and so on) and the "Quick Learn" program.

Runs like a dream again :-)

Thanks for all the tip, guys :-)
