Chrysler introduced the stylish PT Cruiser in late 1999 for the 2000 model year. It comes in a 5-door hatchback and a 2-door convertible. It only had one automatic transmission offered and one standard shift transmission. Either way, every day Rebuilttransmissionsforsale.com has rebuilt PT Cruiser transmissions for sale cheap.
The five-speed manual transaxle has a reverse gear brake to slow down the gear rotation for easy gear engagement. To improve durability with higher torque output, the standard Chrysler five-speed manual transaxle was upgraded with a stronger input shaft, wider gear teeth surfaces and larger, meatier improved ball bearings.
The optional four-speed automatic called the Ultradrive was introduced in 1989, known as the A604. It features wide-spaced gear ratios and a new final drive gearing to improve shifting performance, torque converter performance and efficiency. It became Chrysler’s most popular front wheel drive transmission/transaxle in history.
Features of this system include no bands, no sprag clutches, sophisticated electronic controls, fully adaptive [learn on the fly] shifting, improved torque management for more accurate shifts and interactive engine and transaxle input sensors, switches and transmission controllers that provide control in hilly terrain.
Early model 604 transaxles had a fair amount of functional problems for a few years until Chrysler and some astute transmission re-builders figured out how to solve the deficiencies and produce a really fine product. These updates and upgrades are installed in every rebuilt A 604 that leaves our facilities.
Recognize these symptoms? The most common problems with the early Chrysler A604 transmissions are poor shifting quality and sudden drive-line shocks into second gear caused by the transmission computer detecting problems with sensor input and clutch clearances (“limp-home” mode).
It is worth mentioning that the A604 transmissions were improved and deemed reliable by the mid ’90’s, meaning a used transmission is not a risk. We make sure that the actual ”code” on the transmission is one from the new and improved transmissions, which does not have the inherent problems anymore.
