OK, after 3 trys I think I have the tv cable lined up close and where I want it.

Adjusted the front band, very tenacious with both adjustments.

I drove a couple times today and shifts through the gears perfect even after the OD off and Trans Lite comes on, at this point I pull over and let it cool, shifted into N but lights remain on.

There is no transmission temp guage but I did grab ahold of both transmission lines at the radiator and they both were cool, same temp. as the inner tie rod or any of the suspension.

I did pull off the transmission cooling line at the radiator and with a catch pan, started the engine and shifted into N for less than 10 seconds or so and a quart gushed out.

So there is fluid going to the radiator (no seperate trans cooler), should I try the other side? I'm wondering if the check valve in the cooling line is plugged up there still should be at least one of the lines hot?

From what I have read this points toward the Torque Convertor, but I haven't seen anything in the fluid. Also it does not shudder or shake at up to 70mph or so.

Cleaned the connections at the cam and crank sensors and there has been no new cel codes

The transmission lines should be hot to warm, the pressure should be hot and the return should be warm. If there isn't any fluid coming out of the return then your anti-drain back valve is probably sticking. I don't think it's the torque converter, torque converter won't work without some kind of fluid.

But you have the gearshift and TV all corrected so the only problem you have is with the CEL code, shudder at speeds above 70, and this transmission cooling problem.

So tell me about the shuddering and CEL code that you are getting.

After a closer look of the plumbing for the trans lines, it looks as I do have a trans cooler on the drivers side of the radiator that measures 2 inches by 8 inches.

If so, is that where the anti-drain back valve would be? It looks like I can remove the front grill to access the valve if so.

Actually, there is no shudder at any speed, below or above 70 mph. Sorry for the confusion.

As far as the cel codes, yesterday I forgot something and pulled into my neighbors driveway to turn back around and when I shifted back into D, the cel light came on and flashed 1391 and 1740 again.

Ok good vibration is out of the way (finding and fixing vibration issues on these vans is difficult).

The anti-drain back valve should be on the passenger side of the radiator, built into the plumbing. On the pressure line.

Well the 1740 code is the TCC / OD Solenoid, which I think you replace already???

And the 1391 is some kind of signal loss to the PCM... Probably just a loose connector, make sure the ECM harnesses are snug fit on the ECM.

I agree, had a similar problem with the fuel pump not working, turned out to be a dirty connection at the pcm. After cleaning with wd40 the pump began working again with no problems since and that has been over a year or so.

I forgot to mention that the trans lines are both hot at the transmission with one being a little warmer and both lines are cool at the radiator.

yes, the solenoids have been replaced including the TCC/OD.

"The anti-drain back valve should be on the passenger side of the radiator, built into the plumbing. On the pressure line. "

Since the flow is good on the pressure line to the radiator, no plugged anti-drain back valve?

But for some reason it were past the cooler, it would need to be checked after the aux cooler before the transmission?
