Whirring noise when slowing down. Still trying to figure this one out.
Replaced flex plate under powertrain warranty.
Transmission clunked when shifting. Checked for flash program updates - all controllers were up-to-date. Cleared variable line pressures and performed "quick learn" procedure.
In Economy mode, transmission "clunks" as car slows to 15 mph.
Transmission "bumps" when slowing to 15mph in economy mode.
The transmission has always "clunked" when slowing to 20 mph in Econo Mode. I was told this is normal. Now the transmission does the same thing in non Econo Mode which it had not done before. Again I was told this is "normal."
Transmission banging into drive when shifting from reverse or park. Re-programmed transmission computer.
Bangs into drive when shifting from reverse to drive. Problem corrected. No more bangng since van was in shop.
Transmission would 'clunk' when selecting gears - dealer reset the computer and indicated that it was a known software issue. Transmission now operates very smoothly.

Clicking noise coming from front left wheel when steering moved away from centre (both directions). Diagnosis was that axle nut not properly torqued (!) and allowed for play.
CEL keeps illuminating, throwing transmission codes. Dealer reset codes. Still returning codes
Transmission shifts very rough and sometimes fails to shift up a gear under heavy acceleration.
Transmission had a hard shift at low speed. M38 recall addressed the problem
The transmission failed completely and they replaced it under warranty
trans slams into gear when shifting from reverse to drive. Erratic shifting of 6 speed trans at all times.
computer reflashed because of harsh shifting
Transmission is shifting strangely, particularly exhibiting a "flare" in RPM when shifting from 4th to 5th and from 5th to 6th. Also, it sometimes bangs into drive pretty hard when shifting from R to D. They reprogrammed the TCM. Problem has returned.
This is my 3rd trip to try to improve transmission operation. This time I went to a different dealer. They said the same things the first dealer did, but they did do some reprogramming and add'l checks. Shifting is better, tho not perfect
Rough shifting. Torque converter clutch failed, causing facing material to contaminate internals. New TC installed, transmission overhaul kit installed
Transmission clunked when shifting. Checked for flash program updates...Also rear quarter vent window switch recall (P25/NHTSA 14V-234)
Poor shifting, harsh engagement, and whistling/whining while slowing down. Dealer unable to fix, says everything is normal. This transmission is terrible.
Hard shifting, especially downshift. Dealer reprogrammed, better for now.
Seal in transmission went bad, needed replaced. Also flashed update for recall on transmission shift points
Customer Satisfaction Notice M38 - reprogram transmission computer for better shifting. No longer slams into gear after backing up, less "harsh" shifts when in ECON mode. Covered under powertrain warranty.
When coming to a rapid stop, a "bump shift" occurs while the transmission tries to figure out what to do. Fluid drained, new filter, re-fill with fresh fluid. No apparent repair available, software up to date with M38 flash.
Van was shifting irregularly, especially between 75 and 80 kilometers per hour...thats about 50 miles per hour..was told the torque converter was locking up and failing to release between gears
Shifting hard and jerky.
Transmission was jerky and car shook in reverse. Dealer flashed control module. Drives much better now, shaking in reverse still there. Dealer opened up a case.
Warning light for torque converter, replaced. WONDERFUL SERVICE FROM MY LOCAL DODGE DEALER. ALL COSTS WERE COVERED BY MANUFACTURE. DEALER EVEN ASKED TO TEST DRIVE IT 2 DAYS AFTER REPAIR, AS A FOLLOW UP. WONDERFUL SERVICE FROM MY LOCAL DODGE DEALER. ALL COSTS WERE COVERED

rebuilt transmission, and replaced torque converter and pump, after previous replacement of torque converter and pump, shop should have replaced transmission the 1st time at 37800 mi but did a sloppy fix while under warranty
The van would go into limp mode while driving. Dealer flushed trans. fluid and billed us $350. Didn't solve problem. After we replaced the battery (ourselves) the problem has mostly gone away. Happened 1 other time since.
The Check Engine light reported a problem with a relay on top of the transmission. Transmission would not shift out of 2nd gear for a while. The problem then went away. However we had to resolve the Check Engine light prior to inspection.
Transmission has slight oil leak; diagnosed & part ordered and replaced on same day
Left CV joint bad
Had to replace transmission with used lower mile transmission.
Apparent internal transmission issue, with audible sound of metal-on-metal grinding whenever in "Drive". Failure of transmission torque converter resulted in catastrophic damage to planetary gears and other internal components. Complete overhaul required.
flywheel cracked while on vacation, downtime 4 days
Heard clicking noises when making hard turns, knew from previous vehicles that this could be CV joint. Shop insist that both half axles need to be replaced to verify that problem is solved. Saving up money.
My son took to another shop and was able to inspect undercarriage with mechanic. No leaking of steering parts visible. Driver side half axle replaced after obvious joint noise thru boot. Prev. shop claimed couldn't tell which side.
Apparently linkage from auto transmission selector was not quite engaged and after 20 km it went into neutral during acceleration and the computer showed error which was the transmission shift module or something similar. It faulted as the power to the module is cut when car is in neutral so there might be a sticking cable from the drivers control stick to the auto transmission. I was able to drive the van normally after making certain the transmission is engaged correctly without any trouble. It os possible that a long winter in which vehicle was driven little allowed the linkage to stiffen and not engage as it ought to. We shall see as a replacement of this module is more than the vehicle is worth.
At around 190000 miles engine service light came on. Light has stayed on and sometimes will not shift out of park into gear. Still regularly drive vehicle. Check tranny fluid regularly. Add fluid every 6 months or so.
Engine Transmission light has been on frequently recently. The car runs and drive but somtetimes takes a while to get into gear
leaking transmission solenoid pack, replaced and reprogrammed
Replace transmission solenoid pack
Transmission electronic shift controller. I was from out of state and it took them 11 days to repair. Small town dealer just did not get in a hurry. Unexceptable time for one of the most popular cars on the road.
Hard shift between 3rd and 4th. Dealer wanted $98 to look at it and $95 to "flash". Went to a local shop, "flashed",took two minutes for free which fixed the problem and wouldn't except payment. Just asked me to send business his way.
vehicle was stalling when cold, mechanic/shop could not find a source but noted that the transmission fluid was really dirty & due a change & that it might fix the problem. We did the fluid change and since then no cold start stalling. $45 to diagnose t
Midas replaced leaking trans. fluid cooling hose that goes thru radiator. But they used a hose intended for fuel and it broke down 30 days the fluid leaked out leaving us stranded near our destination requiring a tow to a reputable repair shop to fix it.
Just after car was started, the transmission did not drive the car. It took a minute for transmission to warm up or get pressure or something, to move the car. I think that this was caused by a blocked transmission oil filter. Leaky pipes replaced
Transmission went out at 202k miles. Limp home mode due to no overdrive clutch left.
Left front axle shaft snapped in half at U-joint. Towed to trusted transmission shop, who repaired it same day.
Transmission was experiencing "bump shift." Dealer flushed the system and relearned the computer. Dealer stated this would be a temporary fix and the transmission would probably fail within 3 to 6 months. Bump shift is gone.
