My caravan is hard to tow any ideas

Flat bed trailer would be easiest. If it is AWD, you must flat tow or either remove drivelines. If you are able, U-haul can rent

Transmission cooler

Having once owned a trans repair shop I
would never tow with that transaxle or any
front wheel drive transaxle

You can look in the grill & see all the coolers
& follow the lines & tubing to power steering
& transaxle

NO factory cooler will be large enough for towing

Do you change your trans fluid every 3 years or sooner,
on ALL vehicles you have ever owned?

Death Sentence to any trans if you don't

Power Steering Fluids as well

You could pull a small trailer just to take leaves to
the recycle center but nothing else.

Those caravans need to come from the factory with a
spare trans,60% of my shops work was those transaxles

I also have made similar experience with my CRV-2007. I made the warning light disappear by taking off the battery power for some hours, starting up and driving a short tour with the car.

Sudden poor fuel economy on a 2001 Grand Caravan 3.8l

a partial plugged cataylic convertor would case this. and under a load like towing a boat should have thrown a code. a exhaust back pressure test would show this. but normal driving would not throw a code.

god bless you for serving our country!!!

Not very good on towing


Pls see this link, my reply to a post parallel to your concern.

Basically the lower the differential/axle gear ratio the better on the mileage, a little faster but poor pulling power. Most vehicles meant for highway driving would have a lower ratio. I was also made to understand that there are some Jeep versions that have as low as 3.73.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
