1992 Plymouth Grand Voyager

At about 20 mph it will slip out of gear and then back in. After that it will not shift. There aren't any grinding sounds. It just pops out and then in and then stops working. Do I need to replace the whole transmission? Have any of you had these kinds of problems? What would be the best way to go about fixing this?

Assuming "it" is gear IN transmission, not gear shift lever, you looking at trannie rebuild.

Or, at least, you can try changing ATF and treating it with some Lucas, but it's likely only to prolong the agony.

You didn't say how many miles, but @22 years old it has to be at least 250K I would think. At that age chances are that even without symptoms it would be reaching the end of its life expectancy.

It only has about 165k miles on it.

I tried changing the ATF and adding some Lucas, but it doesn't seem to help.

Then read the 1st paragraph in my post. ONLY? That's quite a hefty mileage.

What happens when you manually shift? Will it stay in 1st gear? 2nd gear? When you say "then stops working" does that mean the vehicle will no longer move?
