So the overpriced 60K mile LeBaron my darlin lady absolutely had to have is behaving precisely like a 90's Chrysler does as I tried to explain to her before buying it, meaning the trans is acting up. I think, possibly optimistically, that the solenoid pack is crapped out, or a bad connection, and/or wrong fluid in it, or control module. It seems to be thunk-ign in and out of gear, started with reverse, now seems to do it in 1st as well. Haven't gone beyond 1st gear since it started acting up. The last time I looked at it, it lost all drive in D or R while I was fooling around, key off/on and it was back, hence the thinking it's electrical. I did try pulling the battery cable for awhile, no change. It's never slipped or shifted weird before, fluid doesn't smell burnt (but does smell like dex III, I don't remember what atf+ chrysler fluid smells like). Anyway, plan is to check for corrosion in any electrical connections, change fluid and filter and swap out the solenoid pack. My question is, of the several available on Rock Auto, any particular brand known to be junk/great? Pioneer, Standard Motor Products, ATP? And if anyone has the parts to swap this to a manual trans I'd be mighty interested in hearing a price.
