Just bought a 2002 Chrysler Sebring LX as a project car. The main problem is the transmission keeps slipping and the TCM is sending trouble codes. There also a loud, high pitched whine that seemingly comes from the transaxle where my CV joint connects to the tranny. I've been doing some research on the web and it seems that transmission problems on 01-03 Dodge/Chrysler are all too common. There must be at least 20 suggestions that users on various forums claim to have fixed the problem... So I figure I come back here to this forum to get a clearer, more definitive answer my particular problem. I would just like to start by making sure that I narrow down my list possible fixes by following a good transmission diagnosis procedure... Any suggestions?
Things I HAVE done:
- Pulled codes (p0700,p1684)
- Checked ATF level (topped off, but not over filled)
- Reset TCM
- Checked for leaks (none)
