1994 Plymouth Grand Voyager...what causes this?

Recommended Posts

Need you guys to throw out some ideas for me. Transmissions are admittedly a weak point for me as I know very little about them. About 6 months ago the transmission went out on my service van (1994 Plymouth Grand Voyager 3.8L) and so I bought one from salvage, changed the filter and fluid, and replaced it. It has done well up until this point, but lately I have noticed it has started to shudder on acceleration (feels like the whole front end is shaking from side to side!) at about 20 or 25 mph and then if you get up and faster than it will keep shaking even after I let off the accelerator. I have discovered that if I shift it into neutral while this is happening that it will immediately smooth out. Initially I thought it was a tie rod or something suspension/steering related, or maybe a bad axle, but wouldn't it keep shaking even in neutral if that was the case? Any and all help would be appreciated!

      Our Service writer is paid 8% on all sales.  When he is off for 2 days, we have another hourly person that service writes.   My question is we pay the SW that was off for 2 days 8% on all sales, but take them as vacation days.  The person filling in (he does a great job) pay him the difference if he was service writing and would be commission.    Looking to see if somebody has a better solution.  If the regular SW is on vacation, I can figure the sales from his last day till he comes back.  That is not a problem

      Good evening, 
      Is anyone using 1st mile merchant services for CC processing?  They are partners of Mitchell 1 and seem to offer great rates and options. They also provide customer financing. I’m considering switching from my current processor but would like to hear real world experience before hand.

      Hi everyone,
       
      did any of the shops that started the  CARFAX Service Shop program ever read the TERMS ??????  ( https://service.carfax.com/csn/csnTerms )    So, basically, they are collecting VIN & Email ( meaning they can target the vehicle make/model/year/valu etc AND customer contact -email ).....  they can sell this info to competition ; especially to brand specific shops!!!! or dealerships !!!!!    on top of it ... they can STOP The free service ANYTIME they like, and keep using all the data they gathered!   anyone else see a problem with all this and other stupid clauses ( ie : no jury , no class action ..) ???

      Below is a link to an article about Obenbay's debut with an online virtual service advisor. Is this the future?  Or will technology remove that personal touch.  For me, someone that has built a business on strong relationships and human customer touch points, this is something I am not sure of.  But then again, what about the millennials and the Z generation?

      You spend a lot of time and money finding an hiring an employee. Whether it be a technician, service advisor or office worker.  However, the real work to ensure that the new employee is up and running begins when you hire that person.  Don't make the mistake of thinking that a new-hire can be put to work without an orientation period. No matter how experienced someone may be, take the time to slowly acclimate that person to your shop, your other employees and your systems and procedures. The time you take in the beginning will help to create a long-lasting employee relationship.
