the trannys on the avenger gets trashed pretty easily. the avenger has an open diff so the driver side wheel pushed the car forward and the passenger side wheel pushes the car backwards. the transmission is an A406. if you end up replacing the transmission any of these cars have the same one: 95-00 Dodge avenger (I4 or V6) 95-00 Chrysler Sebring Coupe (I4 or V6) 95-99 Eagle Talon (non turbo only) 95-99 Mitsubishi Eclipse (non turbo only) with these trans it's sometimes just cheaper to replace.

Same problem but on a 93 Dodge Dynasty.
