Have a 1998 Durango 4wd 5.2. Transmission pressure low (check engine Light). Changed fluid, now it goes into gear and will lock up. Then goes in again, locks up. I do have low and reverse. Ports clogged with debris?

    Not exactly sure what you mean by lock up. Is the engine stalling because the torque convertor clutch is locking up? If the transmission cooler is restricted you can get a false TCC engagement. You could try bypassing the cooler to test and see if that makes the symptom go away. If it does, install an external cooler.

    If by lock up you mean something other than that, could you be more specific and include the code number(s).
