There is this awful whining noise and my van is slipping into neutral then immediately back. How much does a new tranny cost? Would it be cheaper to replace or rebuild?


Asked by Feb 11, 2014 at 06:19 PM about the 1997 Chrysler Town & Country LXi

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Noise gets louder only when pushing
on the gas. Noise is there when I
start the van and shortly goes away
until I give it gas. Feels like it pops
into neutral and immediately back
around 2nd gear. Kind of a stalling
feeling while going down the road.
Like a jerking forward, it's not
extreme but you can defiantly feel it.

It is time for a new transmission.


I would replace if you need it quick.
