Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan

Open Question

1998 dodge caravan transmission not engaging sporatically

Transmission will sometimes fail to engage and even when it does it will sometimes disengage while operating after coming to a complete stop at a stop sign. Have to turn the vehicle off and then back on to get it to work again. Even that doesn't work all the time. The transmission slips and if the accelerator is depressed too fast, it will slip so bad that the vehicle doesn't speed up and we have to sut back down. The vehicle goes well once running and moving. The fluid level is good and seems to be fine and not burnt. Do not smell anything burning like a transmission slipping all the time.

I need a little mor info. But the reason for the being stuck in 2nd gear is because when something goes wrong with the tranny. it goes into "LIMP" mode wich keeps the trans. from shifting out of 2nd when you are going forward. It does sound like your trans. is gone out though.

2009 Dodge Grand Caravan shifter won't move


Check your transmission fluid level, its not something that is normally checked but can cause problems such as yours. My family had the same make and model as yours and we ended up with a similar problem that revolved around the transmission fluid being too low. You're going to want the car to be warmed up before checking the level, once or twice around the block should do it or let it run for 10 minutes on its own if you can't get it to move.

Just replaced the clutch and still wont engage or disengage


It can't both not engage and not disengage? If you can't put it in gear even with the engine shut off than there is something wrong with the transmission internally. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Y 2002 dodge grand caravan sport 3.3 ,have problem engaging transmission into drive in cold weather,transmission will slip in&out before engaging.


If your transmission has gone your best option is a factory rebuild. Most modern transmissions are very sensitive to having clean fluid. You may just be having an issue with dirty ATF automatic transmission fluid. Try a fluid change with the correct ATF.
If this does not work and you have around $2000 to $2500 to spare the Chrysler dealer installed factory rebuild with 36.000 mile warranty is your best option for fixing the Caravan. Any small shop offering the same service for a couple hundred less could be more trouble than it is worth. If you go with the salvage yard transmission there is no warranty on the installation and you could end up paying to install 2 or 3 before you get a good one.

Transmission slipping 97 dodge grand caravan 3.3L V6 108,000 miles. when cold sometimes fails to engage for 20-30 seconds. Fluid leaks very slowly. I keep it full.


IF THE TRANSMISSION SLIPS THE FORWARD CLUTCHES ARE LIKELY WORN OUT OR THE TRANSMISSION HAS LOW HYDRAULIC PRESSURE, BOTH REQUIRE THE TRANSMISSION BE TORN DOWN AND REPAIRED OR OVERHAULED.

Transmission noises from a 2000 dodge caravan 2.4L


normally should take 6-8liters when empty.If it is making those noises keep a tow truck on speed dial.Dodge does not make a very strong transmission.Could be that you just need the bands adjusted but I suspect you either need to rebuild or replace it

Sounds like some of the seals are leaking by in the valve body. Pretty expensive rebuild.
