Not sure if this is the right section since itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a DSM, but itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a technical issue. Move it if need be.
So I had a pretty crappy weekend revolving around my 1993 Plymouth Laser RS (N/A w/ auto). Drove it to a show, and it drove fine. Went to leave, backed out of spot, put it in drive and it just free revved. Same for 2 and L. Park, reverse and neutral work fine, but all forward gears are out.
-RPMs donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t suggest any load being applied
-Fluid levels appear fine (though technically hard to say since it hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t actually been run through gears, but no signs of any leaks and I had checked it a couple days before and it was good)
-All sensors and connections looked good (didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have a multimeter or values to check against though)
-Shifter linkage and position sensor are set correctly
Unfortunately the FSM points to Rear clutch or One-way clutch. Seems odd that they would go out so suddenly though. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m honestly hoping itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the valve-body (N-D control valve or Rear clutch exhaust valve seem most plausible) since I have a spare and it can be done w/o pulling tranny.
Who here has experience with the autos (F4A22)? Have you had, or known someone that has had similar issues, and what the cause ended up being? Hopefully itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be back at my house today so that I have tools to work on it and properly diagnose. Any inputs would be greatly appreciated though.
