    2004 Pacifica TRS Issue

    Finally got to the job today. You do in fact need to drop the engine cradle to get enough access, but I managed to do it with the tools on hand. You need about 2" between the cradle and the frame at the front bolts with the engine jacked up to get enough clearance. About all you can do without...

    2004 Pacifica TRS Issue

    Fantastic - thanks! I don't have an engine support bar that works for this vehicle, so that will save me some time and money. I've had the pan off without issues, but wasn't sure if there was clearance for the valve body.

    Two Little A604's - One Big Dilemma

    Just a quick update - I've got the original receipt from the Fifth's transmission rebuild in front of me. It was indeed done at an ATRA shop as I suspected. A list of the parts they replaced: overhaul kit filter OD frictions OD steels 2/4 frictions solenoid kit UD piston pres plate kit...

    Two Little A604's - One Big Dilemma

    Thanks for the advice. Yeah - the Fifth is probably not worth using as a parts car. Still want to see how bad things are in the diff though. The Imperial? Considering what I went through to get that car, I'm intent on keeping it on the road. No more ABS, the air shocks were just...

    Two Little A604's - One Big Dilemma

    Thanks for the info - very helpful post :) I haven't gotten into the Fifth's differential yet to see what kind of shape it's in, but I'll update this thread with what I find in there (might be a while yet). From the sounds of it, a diff swap or other servicing is probably going to be out of...

    Two Little A604's - One Big Dilemma

    No problem there. . . can't do anything on my end until I save some more cash. The Imperial's been parked for the winter - decided to stop driving it before things got so bad it couldn't make that four hour trip if it had to.

    Two Little A604's - One Big Dilemma

    Yeah - that's the one thing that keeps nagging at me. Lotsa work for maybe no real gain. But with me being a cheapskate, I want to find the cheapest way of dealing with the Imperial's tranny and getting something reliable. This is now the only thing standing in the way of the Imperial...

    Two Little A604's - One Big Dilemma

    Ok then. . . guess I'll look elsewhere for info. I think I have a pretty good idea of what I need to do now, anyway. Worst case scenario, I'll have the diff rebuilt in the Fifth. Still going to be cheaper than the total rebuild the Imperial's A604 needs.

    Two Little A604's - One Big Dilemma

    Greetings, forum users. Short time lurker, first time poster here. Bear with me, I haven't really done much transmission work before. As the title says, I have a dilemma. I own a 1992 Imperial I'm trying to keep on the road, and it predictably has transmission issues. My mother...
