  • Q:

    I have a 2005 Chrysler Sebring. Over 115,000 miles. Just had the transmission flushed about a month ago. Started it up this morning and won't shift out of first. Could this be the output and input speed sensor? Should I change both? Please help.

      Hi Michael, with reference to your inquiry on the Dorman - OE Solutions Transmission Input Speed Sensor - part# 917-601, the input and or even the output sensor may be the possible cause of the problem on your Chrysler Sebring. However, without the presence of the vehicle we could neither diagnose the problem nor provide you with a 100% answer. We would suggest you to get assistance from a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

  • Q:

    I need to know what the size is across the flats of this sensor. I do not have a big enough socket or box wrench. I do not want to be guessing and buy the incorrect size tool.

  • Q:

    I have a 1996 Dodge Grand Caravan, it has 3.3 motor. In my Haynes Manual, it seems all reference to the trans seemed to be more towards the 4 speed or over drive trans, when I look up my model. I bought a trans gasket and filter kit + pan with a drain. Parts are correct for my trans. But my confusion is, mine is a 3 speed tranny? I cleaned off the numbers on the trans case and they are as follows : Top # R4883031AB Middle # AF37901 Bottom # 211 03 Can anyone tell me exactly what Trans I have ? I want to change the Input Speed Sensor and the Output Speed Sensor, but all references keep coming up as 41TE... Would my trans be a 31TH 3 Speed ??? It seems like they keep saying the 3 speed is not used with the 3.3 motor ? Also on the ID Plate under the hood it refers to the Trans being a - DGB according to the Vehicle ID on the van.... Thanks for your help

  • Q:

    I need to know if this is the cause of my transmission going into "get home" mode, or if it is the Vehicle Speed Sensor.
    Which one of the sensors controls vehicle shifting?

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      There are two speed sensors on most transmissions: an input speed sensor and an output speed sensor. The transmission control uses the ratio between them to report if the transmission is working wrong. The output speed sensor is usually used as the vehicle speed sensor; if it dies the speedometer won't work and the transmission tries to stay in low gear. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.
