My 2001 dodge grand caravan 3.8l cuts off when i shift from park to any gear and the transmission fluid i checked from the dipstick is black and metalic looking


so it idles fine as long as it is in park. when you shift it into gear it stalls?

Does it feel like if you had a manual transmission and you let out the clutch with your foot on the brake?

if you are in a place you can do this safely without hitting anything try starting it while the transmission is in neutral. After it starts put it into either drive or reverse with your foot off the brake. Does it start to move, then the rpms start to drop fast and then stall?

Again if you can do this in a safe place what happens if you do the above and as soon as it goes into gear you give it a little gas? Will it move and stay running until you come to a stop? If yes the torque converter is locked.

Unfortunately from the description of the fluid and this symptom your likely looking at replacing the transmission.

Will the car move at all. If you put it in gear and let your foot off brake , does it move untill you touch gas , or does it jam up as soon as wheels start to turn. I am suspecting problem with diff.

Transmission question. Now i know that it is damaging to an automatic transmission to put it in another gear while the car is moving, but I was wondering, in my 2009 CRV there is about a second delay when...


Not yet, but you could end up breaking hard parts like the transmission output shaft or axle. The way the transmission is programed (Transmission Control Module) is when the transmission is on park, the transmission line pressure is drop so when you put it to gear, there will not be a big shock to the transmission and drive line. If you give it gas before it's in gear, the transmission line pressure rises which will give the transmission a large shock when it goes in to gear and can cause a major internal part to break like the out put shaft. The transmissions were program to go in to gear with a delay and the transmission line will rise once it's in gear, this way the transmission will last longer and less probability to any parts breaking unless abused that way you have described on how you don't wait for it to go in to gear before you take your foot of the gas and give it gas right away. And yes they can see that thought the DTC history on how the car is driven voiding any warranty.
Good luck and thank you for using Fixya

First gear


The following test is very dangerous. Do not try this if you are going to let the brake go at anytime. YOU MUST HOLD THE BRAKE DOWN WITH YOUR LEFT FOOT 100% OF THE TIME.

OK. Open the hood and turn on the car. Have an assistant stand to the SIDE OF THE ENGINE NOT IN FRONT OF THE CAR. Next, put your foot firmly on the brake with one foot and your second foot on the gas simultaneaouly. Put in gear iff the brake is all the way down. now torque the motor by slowly giving it gas, while you brake NEVER IS UNDONE. Your assitant is looking at you engine to see if it is moving forward and backward erratically. Now torque in reverse gear.

Hold the brake 100% of the time. With the seond foot torque (giving gas) in reverse. You assistant is looking to see if the engine moves erratically.

It sounds like you have a broken engine mount. If a Toyota, there is a "dogbone" looking mount on top of the engine in front of the passenger in the engine compartment. Notice it does not happen when you run lightly, but it noisey when torqued.
