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.

I have code P0704 transmission how can i diagnos and repair problem?


Well code 704 is usually found on vehicles with a manual trans. The code means the computer is not getting a signal from the clutch switch.
You may need to check a Caravan shop manual to find out if that code exists on automatic trans models.

Where is the trans contro module in 2002 Dodge Gr Caravan


It's located behind the front bumper on the driver's side. You need to disconnect the battery, remove the left front wheel and remove enough of the retainers for the left front wheel well [plastic] shroud, to move the shroud out of the way. This gives you access to the TCM [transmission control module aka transmission computer] Diagram linked below. See

3,3 engine,changing side pan on trans what is trans fluid cap. 2000 dodge grand caravan.changing out trans fluid what is capacity of trans


if you choose to do it at home all you can drain out is about 40%. A shop machine will replace 100%. Just keep that in mind if you really want to preserve the trans since these transmissions are prone to high rate of failures. Number 1 reason trans fail is do to bad fluid.

2002 dodge gran caravan transmition bum when


When was the last transmission tune? If you just had one and it wasn't at the dealer all the internal computer values will be off. The same happens as fluid wears also. If you haven't, get the fluid and filter changed, make sure the dealer performs a "quicklearn" on the transmission, this will relearn all the fluid volume vlues and shift points. This is a process which any dealer should perform when they do a trans tune. Hope this helps, if the problem persists, you may have internal damage, but what you are describing sounds pretty simple if looked after right away.
Cheers
