1989 A604 neutral safety switch oil leak

3154 Views 7 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Kevin1990
Hey guys,

after flushing my Minivan´s Ultradrive, the neutral safety switch started leaking very bad.
Are there any gaskets i should get or is it just screwed in, so that i could use some teflon tape?

Thank you and greetings
Kevin

There is a gasket ring where the switch screws into the transaxle case. You can seal the threads if this is where it is leaking.
If the body of the switch has started leaking, it will need a switch.

OK thank you!

Do you maybe know how much oil i´ll loose? Or is it better to put the oil pan down first?

You'll lose no fluid replacing the switch. Teflon tape can be a problem as the switch must ground to to the case and it's possible for teflon tape to prevent a ground,

OK thank you very much!

Just another thing....where can i get the N safety switch? Rockauto, Ebay etc. do not offer those parts....only the in / output speed sensors...

Any ideas?

Any parts store should carry it.

Rockauto carries the neutral safety switch. It's under Electrical - Switches and Relays for a 1989 Dodge Spirit.
