waiting for JLemons to answer, where's cargrrl ? lightgear ? I challenge all of you , could be that control solonoid , where is it located ? but the speed sensors seem to be a great idea ! makes good sense, no pun intended . also, chrysler's need that atf+ 4 trans fluid, not, I repeat, NOT dexron II, III . NOW, LETS SEE WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY ??????

how do you determine the type of transaxle you have for the 1989 dodge dynasty , is it a A604, or how do you know ? the transaxle ID, NUMBER stamped on thetop of the housing apparently needs to be trans-lated, via some other manual . any thoughts on this ?
