'99 dodge grand caravan it won't shift above first gear, the speedometer won't work, also dies when put in netural while driving???


Replace the out put speed sensor. The reason it is in 2nd gear.(limp mode) Looking down at the front of the transmission, it is the sensor on the right. The dieing could be a dirty air filter, throttle body and IAC motor.

The trouble began by my van not shifting out of 2nd care... van had gone into limp mode. Shortly there after, the engine light came on and my van started to overheat. We ran the codes and got PO720,...


Hi,
The codes you gave are:
P0720 = Output shaft speed sensor error P0731 = First gear incorrect ratio Replacing the Output shaft speed sensor should clear that up and help your transmission. Around $20 or so. The limp mode is probably caused by a faulty cam position sensor or crankshaft position sensor. Overheating: Did you verify that your cooling fan is coming on? Kicking into a higher speed with the A/C on? Thermostat of the correct heat range and installed with spring end into engine block? Coolant is not rusty looking or weak? (check specific gravity) Flush and refill system if not nice and green or orange/ is rusty looking. Water pump is circulating coolant properly? (open radiator and observe circulation, feel top hose for fluid surging) if not, bad pump. Any of those will cause overheating. Hope that helps! Please rate this answer.....Thanks, Mike

I have a 1994 dodge grand caravan with a 3.8 v6 the transmission get stuck in second gear after driving for 30 min was told it could be a speed sensor


The speed sensor could indeed be preventing the van from switching gears. Have this checked into or you could do it yourself by reading this article and following the link it provides for testing. http://www.engine-light-help.com/speed-sensor.html

Hope this helps:)

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.

My 1994 caravan drives about 200 feet then starts slipping.If I turn the ignition off and back on it will go another 200 feet.friends told me it is some sort of sensor .does any know whats going on .thanks


Please define the word "slipping" for me. To me it means the transmission is "slipping", the van is going down the road, and then the engine RPM's are still there, but the van keeps slowing down ? You try to put on more acceleration, but the engine revs up higher, but you go nowhere ?
Please let me know.

94 Lumina Van with 3.8 liter motor. While accelerating from stop the van will drive good until hitting roughly 30 then it wont shift and you have to back off the throttle until it shifts and once it does...


Seems you may have a varnished up transmission valve body, try the conservative approach first, have the trans serviced and flushed with transmission conditioner additive installed along with new fluid...

2000 grand caravan won't go above 70 mph. high rpms


First I need to ask is it a 4 speed or a 3 speed transmission. If it's a 4 speed when driving down the road pull it from drive to third gear. You shpuld hear the engine speed up if it does not then that means you have on 4th gear and you will have to take it to a transmission shop. If it's a 3 speed then just count the shift points if all 3 gears are present then drive down the road and see if the van goes into tcc. When you mean the rpms are high how high are they.

2000 dodge caravan. Speedometer and odometer quit working and transmission will only work in reverse and low


hi there try to get a price on the speed sensor located on the transmission this sensor tells the computer how fast the van is going in turn the transmission shifts gears and there will be information sent to the speedometer . the reason the van only goes in low gear is to protect the system because the sensor is damaged so replace the speed sensor and try again , let me know how its running after relpaceing the sensor good luck

Tranmission problem on 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan


When the trans. sticks itself in 2nd gear and stays there is because it's detecting a trans. problem and puts itself in "limp in" mode. When it happens again, to somewhere to have a scan done on the trans. so you can find out which sensor on the trans. is acting up.
