2006 dodge dakota tranmission fluid temperature sensor intermittent

Trans light comes on and truck begins to shift hard. I pull over and turn the truck off and back on and it resets and its fine for the remainder of the drive or it will come back on. I scanned it and it gave me an obd2 code P0714.

You diagnosed it.
The sensor in the transmission is faulty, or you have a wiring problem between the trans and the computer.
The sensor is telling the computer the transmission fluid is below zero or over 300 degrees when the light comes on, not what it actually is.

    Thank you Stephen. I kind of thought that as per my diagnosis. I will first check the wiring, But what I don't know is can I just drop the pan and replace the sensor, I believe its called the Governor Pressure and Temperature Sensor does that sound right or do I have to replace the whole valve body which is $396 from the dealer. they said there was no trans temp sensor in there computer and that I would have to replace the valve body, but that's the dealer just trying to make money. Thank you

    I have not been inside one, and I don't have a book. You could check the online dealers to see if the part exists separate from the valve body.

SOURCE: 4L60E Shifts fine in 1st, 2nd, & 3rd but will not shift into OD

The EMC detected and problem so it's in limp mode, As long as it's in limp mode the 4th and OD will not activate. Take care not to burn up the transmission by running it hard while your in the limp mode.
Your going to have to get the truck scanned to clear any codes and why there are DTC codes. Auto Zone scan for free and most auto shops charge $10.00 to $20.00 to scan sine they want the business.
If you want to clear the codes your self you can put the ignition to the run position and pull the ECM (Batt) fuse out for 20 sec and place it back in then start the truck. It may stall but let it, just start it again and this would have cleared all the DTC code history.
The transmission should be running fine unless there is a problem and the service engine light will be on again and you'll be in limp mode still with an updated DTC in the ECM.
Good luck and hope this helps.

You need to have the trans ECU reset back into its adaptive learning mode. The new trans is shifting harder because the trans ECU still thinks the old one is in the car. The ECU learns your driving habits and compensates clutch wear to provide a smooth consistent shift. Your old trans had a lot of clutch wear so to keep the shift quality it allowed more pressure to the clutch packs. So you now have a trans with less wear on it and the shifts are hard. This is something that removing battery power wont reset. It has to be done with a diagnostic tester. Some trans controllers will begin to compensate on their own over a period of time but I don't yours is one of them.

Check the transmission fluid level. Also check the rear differential if your car has one ( I think the 99's were still rear wheel drive) for fluid. If either of these are low, the fact that things are fine indicates that the low fluid level is causing problems. Also, the trans fluid should be a nice pink color. If it isn't then the transmission is not in good shape and should be looked at again by the rebuilder. If the fluid levels are fine, have the rebuilder check the trans again to see if he missed something.

The issue with the temp gauge is entirely separate except if you mean that the car begins to heat up when the shifting problems are occurring. If the temp gauge goes way up then comes down quickly regardless of how the car is being driven, the thermostat may be sticking and should be replaced. If the car is hard to drive and then starts overheating, the transmission may well be defective and causing the engine to work harder than it should.

Could be something sticking.Trans filter should be changed at least every 40,000-50,000 miles.If it has never been changed or has over 50,000 since the last filter service would start with a fluid flush and filter change.Well hope this helps, and good luck.

sounds like your pressure control solenoid inside your trans is sticking you will have to have your pan pulled and have the solenods checked or replaced since it only fails at times it might check out ok when the pan is pulled.

My saturn was running fine. Then it would shift very hard


well if it shifts very hard into every gear that means the pressure control solenoid in the trans went bad and it causing the trans to go to max line pressure thats why it shifts so hard,,,it does that so you can still drive it even thou it broken,anyhow the PC solenoid is under the trans pan which is on the TOP of the trans under the battery,,,,not too hard a job to do, the parts are about $100 labor might be about $200,,,easy fix,,could be alot more,,,and if you dont fix it ,it will break other stuff in the trans and cost alot more,,,
