Question about 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan
Going from back of the story to front, the noise you hear is probably the electric fans in the engine compartment cooling the radiator. As for the lousy shifting, check the trans fluid level and condition. It should be a nice shade of reddish pink, not dark. If you haven't had the fluid and filter changed in 30 - 50k miles, you may want to try that. A good shop can also run diagnostics to see how the shift solenoid is working. These trannys are not the best. I have an 03 and an 07 and the 03 runs circles around the 07 with the same engine. I would never pull a heavy trailer with one.

You might consider having your codes read why because in time the trans will only go into 2nd and reverse i have a 98 grand caravan and i had to get a new selinoid pack if you are looking in the compartment and look down and right at the trans its on the front side of the trans very easy to remove there is sensor right above it you have to remove and the pack cost between $120-$180 not sure its been a year but i do know that auto zone is the cheapest hope this helps
