Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

Shuddering transmission When you put the van in drive and take off you have to go very slow at first because it shutters and the transmission sound like metal on metal. The fluid levels is where it should be. This is on a 2000 Caravan. Right now, you have to wait for it to go on it's own.

2000 echo shuttering when you accelerate


Sounds like an engine misfire.Does the check engine light come on or flash. If so, it may be a spark plug or ignition coil issue. The transmission can also cause a shudder problem. These transmissions are usually rather dependable though.

Transmission shudder


If it has less than 100,000 miles it is under warranty. Most vehicles have a 100,000 mile warranty on drive train. It will save you hundreds of dollars. .

Shuddering at 45 mph


Normally I would say you have a basic cylinder miss. The engine is under the most load when the transmission shifts into lockup or overdrive.
Is the check engine light on ?

Transmission shudder on 1997 Mercury Gran Marquis


When you get a shutter- drag the brake pedal lightly-
that will turn off the torque converter clutch if the solenoid
is working

The rpm should go up with any brake pedal application-
if the converter is releasing

If you determine the torque converter clutch is bad & the
shutter,then the trans has to come out

Check engine & trans mounts also for wear

Hi, Hope you guys can help on here. I've just bought a 2002 forester x20 automatic. Just driven it home and found quite a noicable shudder on acceleration - only at slow speeds, really noticable in...


dirty transmission fluid is common to cause a shutter like this. when was transmission fluid changed last! I would recommend doing this first. if the shutter still remains, you may have to flush it twice. if its a sputtering sound it could be plugs, wires, etc. good-day !

My chevy astro van shakes when i slow own. and now


Sounds like your bands are locking up and sticking.
This is usually caused by worn bands or very dirty transmission fluid. the cheap fix is to change your transmission fluid and filter. If that doesn't fix the problem, your forward bands or servo may be worn out, which will require a rebuild.

After high speed driving, slow speed shudder


when it starts to shutter get the car up on a lift and spin the wheels and look and see if there is a wheel bubble.
if the brakes were done recently a binding brake pad can cause some of that.
hope this helps

Clunky Vibration or Shutter


I'd shudder too at 260,000 miles. . By shudder, do you mean vibration?. U-joints usually show up at around 45 mph. So try to narrow it down.
