No the tranny in these vans are specific to these exact years I had a similar issue go to you pull and upay salvage look for a 2000 caravan the trannny is only swappable by a exact year this is a 4 speed trans before you pull it make sure you drop the pan and see if theres any steel shavings in the pan also pull the solenoid and check in bound and outbound to see if they have shavings also try to pull a tranny from a caravan that has had a rear end crash doing these things will greatly improve your chances of getting a tranny that works good luck from fellow caravan salvage junkie that actually got his caravan going again for 350.00 bucks instaed of 2000. last thing call mechanics on craigslist and ask for a tranny swap labor quote make sure they flush the cooler that's standard in any tranny swap good luck

Although the transmission may be siilar, the engine and supporting wiring harness, and control modules are not. This can be done, anything can, but it is probably more trouble than it's worth for a mini van. If this was a classic car then sure.

Looking for a diagram of a 2000 caravan transmission so i can locate the speed sensor


The trans speed sensors are on top of the trans.One closest to the engine is the input. One to the right is the output. On your drivers side of van, follow the trans fill tube down to the trans. The input is just under the trans lines going into the trans. output is 8in to the right. Use 1in socket to remove. 20lbs torque to reinstall. Make sure you replace the o-ring on them.

Changed motors in my 1998 caravan, runs good at times, but then acts like not getting fuel. Put new gas filter and fuel pump on what could cause this. Drove to work yesterday morning ran fine. when got off...


You are a little vag on info,is there a mil light on, check for dtc's, when it does not crank, does the starter just clicks, replace the contacts in the soleniod, when it just turns over, is there spark, if not, you might have a problem with the cranks sensor, if it was not removed before the engine was pulled, about the 2 oclock postion on the trans bell housing , looking at the rear of engine, if this problem was not there before the engine swap, suppect the crank sensor. have you checked fuel pressure, even if the pump is new. are all the components of your swap eng the same as old engine, injectors, sensors, if you can share more info, I will help you further. GOOD LUCK, RDJRP.
