Q for transman


On an earlier post you said when in park fluid does not circulate but does in neutral, is that most cars or just the one you was talking about.

thank you you are a big help on this board


I believe the post you were referring to was a post about a RWD Chrysler. Some of the earlier model Chrysler RWD transmissions would not allow the fluid to flow through the transmission and charge the converter while the transmission was in “P”. The pump would still operate (It has to as long as the engine is running) but the fluid would be bypassed back into the pan. This is why the fluid level on RWD Chryslers needs to be checked with the gear selector in “N”.


I’m happy to be of help…
