Dodge has a reputation for transmission problems in the past. The trans can be replaced or rebuilt but there is likely no simple fix for what you are describing. Make sure in the future to have automatic transmission serviced at least every 30K miles to help them live a long happy life and avoid replacement/rebuild cost.
IF TRANSMISSION LEAKING WHILE RUNNING LEAKING AT TORQUE CONVERTER SHAFT SEAL OR TRANSMISSION COOLER LINES GOING INTO RADIATOR LEAKING.YOU WILL LOSE MORE FLUID AT COOLER LINE BECAUSE TRANSMISSION UNDER PRESSURE THE OIL PUMP PUMPING IT THROUGH THE RADIATOR YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR FLUID QUICKLY IF LEAK COMING FROM COOLER LINES GOING INTO RADIATOR.DONT DRIVE VAN UNTIL FIX BECAUSE FLUID LOST WILL BE TRANSMISSION LOST.
Yes it's a bad seal and most likely the side bearing to the trans axle is bad too. Once the bearing has play, it vibrates and causes the oil to leak though the seal.
Note: if one side went bad the other side is soon to follow since they have the same amount of miles on them. Might as well change both side.
Good luck and hope this helps. Keep an eye on the transmission fluid level, don't want to burn out the transmission.
have the car scanned for computer codes in the transmission section,most big name auto parts stores will do this for little or no charge, make sure they look for transmission codes. when you get these get back to me and we'll go from there,please rate my fix as i strive to be the best,don't leave negative feedback, just get back to me
It more than likely will. The Caravan/Voyager/Town and country came with two common transmissions, the 3 speed (the dash indicator has just the 3 speeds) and the 4 speed (the D gear has an O around it to indicate overdrive). The 3.0 was commonly paired with the 3 speed.
