Chrysler van won't go forward or revers

My van makes a clicking sound when in reverse, sounds like something is loose and broken inside. Someone told me it might not need complete transmission. What do you think?

Im having the same problem as you. First thing is, If it was a valve popping it would make the noise when started not only when in reverse. Secondly, the vehicle is starting so its not the battery, if it were clicking from the battery it would mean the van wouldnt start and it would be clicking when it tries to turn over.

CHECK THE OIL LEVEL, IT MAY BE LOW AND WHAT YOU HEARS IS A VALVE TAPPING.

It is your power steering pump. The solution is to replace the P/S fluid resevoir and fill or flush the system.

SOURCE: Car won't start, making clicking sound, 2002

sounds like the battery is dead the clicking is common when you have a bad batt. once you replace the batt then you will need to have charging system checked to make sure altenator is working like it should and the battery cables are in good shape.

SOURCE: Van won't start. Just makes a clikcing noise. Horn sounds weak.

THIS IS CAUSED BY A DEFECTIVE STARTER MOTOR SOLENOID, REMOVE AND REPLACE THE STARTER OR JUST REPLACE THE SOLENOID ON TOP OF THE STARTER IF YOU CAN BUY IT SEPERATE.

It sounds like something broke inside the transmission. It could be the shifter cable, but usually the car will move in forward or reverse, just not according to the shift indicator if the cable is at fault.

Shifter is erratic. wont start in park. drives forward when shifted to reverse, sometimes drives forward when in park. sometimes reverse is neutral (which is good so it will start!!!) what is going on???


It sounds like the linkage at the transmission has come loose. Have someone get inside and move the shift lever from gear to gear so you can see where the linkage is on your transmission. You'll have to climb under ypou truck to see this, on the drivers side. check to see that all the bolts are tight. Your switch that allows you truck to start in Park or Neutral is located there.

Not good if it makes a grinding noise. Needs a tech or replacement as something most likely has come loose inside the transmission.

Won't go back


If your vehicle is fitted with automatic gear box sounds that you are going to loose the transmission.For not going on reverse like having locked wheels,I believe looks like the brake bands in the gear box are the reason and the minimal power you have for forward drive are the clutches which are slipping. Visit an experts shop and please do not force it.

Car wont start, NOT battery


sometimes a rubber mallet doesn't work on the stater, you actually have to hit it with something stronger, like a hammer while turning it over. If not check to see if you have a pro lock on your vehicle because if that becomes just a little loose it won't start.

The front of my car feels like its going to fall apart, makes a horriable clicking noise when i hit a bump or turn, car shakes, and i can feel viberation on the gas peddle when driving.


This sounds like a broken or loose motor mount. Has any work been done recently on the van? I am wondering if someone did not properly tighten or attach an engine or transmission mount. Turning or hitting a bump could cause the engine to shift if not secured at the mounts, resulting in the symptoms you describe. Carefully check around the fan at the front of the van (off, NOT running) for evidence of contact being made with the fan shroud or anything else nearby. The noise you hear could be the fan making contact with something when the motor moves when turning or going over a bump. The other possibility would be a bad axle, but that is usually evident when turning, not going over a bump. Have this checked asap, as it sounds like it is dangerous to drive, and can cause more damage if not repaired. Let me know what you find. Good luck.
