Transmission Problems in Chrysler LHS

Transmission problems may be caused by a faulty thermostat in the 3.5L engine. Engine temperature is controlled by the thermostat, which is in turn monitored by the vehicle’s computer system. An incorrect signal can be sent by the cooling system, causing transmission commands to lock up. This can result in a bucking or surging problem. The thermostat should be checked for proper operation and the coolant should be kept at proper level. Always use caution when working around a hot engine.
