I have a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan that will not shift out of park. The shifter moves perfectly and it goes into Rev, nuet and drive perfectly but it will not release the park. What could cause that?


Do you feel the shifter click when shifting or is it smooth. Clicking would be an internal transmission problem. Smooth would be a broken shifter cable.

I have a 1998 dodge caravan transmission slips when i turn car off then it back on it will go for about10 seconds then


If your stating that it takes a few seconds to cut off, your ignition switch is starting to go bad. The only way to fix it is by changing it. As far as the transmission, you need to check the fluid. It may need changed or it may be damaged.

1998 Dodge caravan AWD transmision slips at full throttle


Have you serviced the transmission latley? fluid, filter, band adjustment

Usually under heavy throttle causing the slip is caused by a seal in the pump leaking off hydraulic pressure letting the clutches slip.

Does it slip in all gears or just 1st.?
Does it slip in reverse?
The reason I ask this is because 1st and reverse use different fluid pathways,

also you can take it to a tranny shop and have them check the fluid pressure at the accumlator port to determine what the exact problem is,but my advice is to just drive it easy and make it last as long as you can,a new or rebuild tranny from a dealer would run 2500 or more.

there is a website www.car-part.com that you can use to find a replacement transmission

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan will not shif into 2nd


Most likely the second gear section of the transmission has gone bad. There are 3 or 4 different gear sections or assemblies in an automatic transmission, when they go bad, they go bad.

Transmission slips when its cold


Could be water in your transmission fluid, or its just burning out slowly.
Check the fluid to see if it is a clear reddish color. If not, then thats bad.
