SOURCE: Transmission Removal and replacement instructions

I replaced the tranny in my 98 Grand Caravan Sport. It was time consuming but not terribly difficult. All of the sensors were on different jacks so it was easy to put the electrical parts back together. The flywheel was a pain though, the holes didn't quite match up but the person I bought the replacement tranny from told me to drill the hole out larger and it was fine. I would label every thing you can. Get a script for valum and take your time, thats what I did. It helped to have someone there to help me drop the tranny and lift the new tranny in. Hope this helps. I will keep an eye on this post in case there is something I can help with.

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.

SOURCE: I get codes p0700 and p0740 on a dodge grand

P 0700 = EATX (Electronic Automatic Transmission Communication) Controller DTC Present. = An automatic transmission input DTC has been set in the transmission controller.
P 0740 = Torque Converter Clutch. No RPM Drop at Lockup. = Relationship between engine speed and vehicle speed indicates no torque converter clutch engagement.

Yes the Fluid and Filter Change should take care of this. However, Dodge, Chrysler, and Plymouth Minivans have had alot of Transmission problems over the years. Make sure that whomever changes the Transmission Fluid that they use exactly what is specified. Also, do not let any Mechanic talk you into a Superflush of the Transmission. This procedure does not change the Filter.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!

SOURCE: How do I check the transmission fluid on a 2009

below is info from the owners manual. I do not have a repair manual, but you may be able to buy one that would say how to check the transmission fluid on the 3.5L. It sounds like they don't expect you will need to check it.

Fluid Level Check - Vehicles with 3.5L Engine

The automatic transaxle has no dipstick and is dealer

serviced only.

Fluid Level Check - Vehicles with 2.4L and 2.7L


Use the following procedure to check the automatic

transaxle fluid level properly:

1. Park the vehicle on level ground.

2. Run the engine at curb idle speed for a minimum of 60


3. Apply the parking brake fully.

4. Place the shift lever momentarily in each gear position

ending with the lever in PARK.

5. Wipe the area around the dipstick clean to eliminate
the possibility of dirt entering the transaxle.

6. Remove the dipstick and determine if the fluid is hot

or cold. Hot fluid is approximately 180°F (82°C), which is

the normal operating temperature after the vehicle is

driven at least 15 mi (24 km). Hot fluid cannot be held

comfortably between the fingertips. Cold fluid is at a

temperature below 80°F (27°C).

7. Wipe the dipstick clean and reinsert until seated. Then,

remove dipstick and note the reading.

a. If the fluid is hot, the reading should be in the

crosshatched area marked "HOT" (between the upper

two holes in the dipstick).

b. If the fluid is cold, the fluid level should be between

the lower two holes in the area marked "COLD."

If the fluid level is low, add sufficient fluid through the

filler (dipstick) tube to bring it to the proper level. Do not

How do you check transmission level on 2010 dodge caravan

with your year of vehicle they come with a cold reading and a warm reading level. make sure your on flatish ground. Pull the dip stick and it the engine hasn't been running look for the cool or cold reading level line. if it's up to the line your good. if it's below the line you will need to add a little more fluid until you reach the fill line

Need to know where to add transmission fluid in a dodge caravan 2008

You would add transmission fluid type ATF-4 to the transmission at the place where the transmission dipstick is located on the driver's side of the engine compartment. If there is no dipstick but instead a plug that says dealer use only you need to take it to the dealer for them to check it. If it is low or the pan is leaking they may try to get you to spend $200 on a flush and fill but you could still do it your self for half of that. If you have the 4speed transmission (on the 3.3l engine) the filter is about $10 and it will take about 5.5 quarts of fluid when drained. If you have the 6speed transmission on the 3.8l or 4.0l engines you will need to go to the dealership for the filter $30 and make your own gasket with RTV silicone. It will also take about 5.5 quarts of fluid when drained. Make sure you have several hours for the fluid to drain and then a day for the RTV silicone to dry before refilling. Then have the dealer check the level again. Good Luck.

There is a yellow symbol that looks like this ( ! ) What does this mean? It comes on when I start the engine up.

That is the transaxle i.e. transmission warning light. First step is to check the fluid level. Follow instructions on the dipstick. If fluid is ok, and light is still on, have someone pull the computer codes. Most parts stores can do this, usually for free. However, a Dealership or good transmission shop can tell you exactly why the light is on, but they will charge you for that.

I'm a little unsure where to fill the transmission fluid.

check fluid when hot, engine running in park, if low add a little at a time through the dipstick tube. yyou'll need to dip, clean,dip several times to get excess fluid still going down tube out of the picture.

2008 dodge caravan 31k miles. I devevelped a drining hum.

Since you are still under warranty, I suggest getting your transmission checked at a dealer. We had to get ours replaced at about 28M miles. It was making wierd noises, especially in a parking lot at low speeds and when turning slowly.

There is no dipstick for the transmission fluid on our model :(

If you recently changed tires, then that could possibly be the noise too.

Transmission fluid all leaked out of 2002 dodge grand caravan, are they easy to replace?


replacing the transmission fluid is easy, but you really need to find out why and from where the old fluid leaked. Under the hood in the engine compartment you will find a dipstick (gauge to check the fluid level) which is essentially the same as the oil dipstick in its performance, but different in location. It should be clearly marked as such.

Pull dipstick out and insert funnel into the opening (filler tube) and add 4 quarts of ATF Plus 3 Type 7176. Start the engine and allow it to idle for approx. 2 minutes

Apply the parking brake and push down on the brake pedal while idling and run the gear selector through the gears, stopping at Park.

Check the dipstick and add fluid so that the level is 1/8 inch below the "ADD" indication on the dipstick if necessary. Allow the van to run for around another 10-15 minutes to achieve normal operating temperatures.

Check the fluid level again to make sure it reached the "Hot" indicator level on the dipstick, and add more fluid if needed and then replace the dipstick in the filler tube.

I would definitely find out why you have leaked all of your transmission fluid before refilling it.

I hope this helps and good luck!b989e6d.png

2004 Dodge Grand Caravan Water pump

If it's red, it's transmission fluid. Coolant would be green. Check the fluid level, don't let it get low, Chrysler minivans are prone to transmission troubles, and low fluid levels over time will ruin a a transmission. And be sure not to overfill, it's just as bad for the trans. Have the leak checked out and repaired, good luck

There are spots of transmission fluid under the car when it is parked for any length of time. I was told that the differential had to be replaced. My car is a 2000 Dodge Caravan.

The cause could be transmission leaks from any number of sources but it should be investigated. Check the transmission fluid level after driving it awhile to warm it up. The fluid should be red, and within the guide marks on the dipstick. If it is dark, it is probably time for a flush. But you still need to address the basic problem which could be a leaky pan gasket, solenoid pack, dipstick filler tube, etc.

To find out which it is you will need to go under the vehicle with a flashlight and check for fluid "tracks" coming off the transmission.
