SOURCE: 1999 Dodge Caravan Does not go in reverse

The shift soleniod is the most logical answer or the shifter cable has to be adjsuted.
I do not think the gears are an issiue. Is you fliud clean ? Does the fuild smell burnt or dark in color.
Is there metal shaving in the fluid. ?
If any of the above condition exist then you should take the vehicle in for service .

SOURCE: dodge 1996 caravan/engine starts then abruptly shuts off

I would check the iac(idle air control valve) first it controls the idle, and then if it is still acting up you may have to change the crank/cam position sensor

SOURCE: my 1995 dodge caravan needs warmed before going into reverse

Trans is internally worn and only sealing properly when parts are hot. I would change fluid and filter just to be sure pressure loss is not from filter but if it does not improve, start saving up for a rebuild.

your transmission is gone. when ever you loose reverse then that is first main indication.

SOURCE: Gear shift in 07 Dodge Caravan doesn't go cleanly

Sounds as though you may have either a bad shifter cable, or it is out of adjustment. You can remove the airbox, and check the cable, and linkage where it attaches at the trans. I have seen the linkage work loose and cause the same problem.

No not at all. The problem may be with the anti-theft system. Sometimes in older cars, especially Dodges', the theft system starts to act up even though you put the key in the ignition. You may want to have it checked out at the dealership, shouldn't cost that much just to have it looked at.

2001 Dodge Caravan SE 2.4L.. In cold Weather it starts then stalls and dies...?

Inlet air temperature sensor, also known as throttle body temperature sensor, will do that. Don't go changing TPS, or IAC, as suggested in other post. If they work good in warm weather, they should do the same in cold. Air inlet sensor tells system how much fuel to deliver according to temperature, as engine needs more fuel the colder it is when starting.
