I replaced the tranny in my 98 Grand Caravan Sport. It was time consuming but not terribly difficult. All of the sensors were on different jacks so it was easy to put the electrical parts back together. The flywheel was a pain though, the holes didn't quite match up but the person I bought the replacement tranny from told me to drill the hole out larger and it was fine. I would label every thing you can. Get a script for valum and take your time, thats what I did. It helped to have someone there to help me drop the tranny and lift the new tranny in. Hope this helps. I will keep an eye on this post in case there is something I can help with.

Where is fuse 15 related to tcm

This fuse is in the under hood fuse panel. It is marked on the cover. If it is good, then replace the solenoid pack. It's not hard to replace, but it is important to clean the area thoroughly before replacing. Behind the solenoid pack. If dirt gets in the holes after removal. Then it is a transmission pull to clean the valve body and transmission.

2010 dodge caravan

On the bottom of the auto transmission there is a belly pan, this pan must be removed to drain the fluid out of the transmission and replace the internal fluid filter. So you will need a large drain pan to catch the fluid and a floor jack to raise the van and safety stands to support it while you remove the bolts that hold the pan on, there is no drain plug so this is a VERY messy job. Clean off the old gasket completely, use no sealer and use a high quality trans pan gasket, the dealer is best or you will have leakage problems, tighten the bolts to 12-14 pounds of torque with a torque wrench, this is very important.

Trans code po 715 for 1998 dodge grand caravan

P0715 is for the transmission input speed sensor. This sensor is used for shifting control. It's mounted on the front of the trans, threaded in just under where the cooler lines meet the trans. It has a two wire electrical connector, and a 1" hex for a socket for removal.

This code could be caused by the sensor's wiring, but it's very likely to be the sensor itself and it will need to be replaced. This isn't an uncommon failure.

The input speed sensor runs less than $20 at a parts store and will be in stock at any parts store or dealer. It only takes a few minutes to replace.

Removal the flywheel and change

Not quick fix here. Best thing is remove transmission, If you decide to do it or have it done, go ahead and replace the engine rear main seal and the transmission seal behind the torque convertor. Service the transmission as you will end up losing alot of fluid in the process. get a book at the Auto parts store or library. If you find a shop to do it you may bee looking at 500.00
