Transmission Sensor Problem

I have a 1995 Dodge Caravan SE and I just bought a transmission for my van and the transmission that originally came out of my van has 4 sensors verses the one i bought that has 3 sensors. Does it make a big difference that one transmission has more than the other? Is there anything I can do besides buying a brand new transmission? Is there anyway to hook up the three without the 4th.

You got the wrong year model, and it will make a difference. You need to take that tranny back, and get the correct one.

Where is the crankshaft position sensor located in a 1995 Dodge Caravan SE?

The Crank Position sensor is mounted on the transmission Bell housing - back side - a few inches above the extension housing for the passenger side drive axle.
You can get to it from under the hood - easier to see if you take all the air cleaner/intake hose away from over the transmission.
Important note: one 10mm bolt holds it on a slide adjustment - very important that it is adjusted properly.
1. Proper way to adjust is to apply the provided stick-on disc to the end of the sensor (looks like a felt pad - about the thickness of a credit card)
2. Check in side the hole to make sure the sensor ring Does Not have a window directly in line (turn crank pulley slightly to correct)
3. Install the sensor - slide it in to touch the sensor ring - tighten the bolt.
4. plug the sensor back into the harness
The spacer/felt pad will space the sensor at proper distance and as soon as the engine starts it will probably get rubbed off the end of the sensor.
You will have to install the sensor to touch the ring and move it back slightly (about the thickness of a credit card)
When you start the engine - if you hear it hitting - the sensor ring may be slightly bent and you will need to adjust it out.
If you have it to far in it will hit - too far out will not start.
The sensor ring can easily be bent/damaged by transmission work - 95 FWD Dodge MiniVan has probably had the transmission removed for repairs at some point. That sensor information is shared by both the Engine Computer and the Transmission Computer.
Good Luck with that :)

95 dodge caravan transmission will shift when cold but once van gets warm after about 30 mins of driving, wont gear down, just stays in low gear... do i need a new transmission?

It could be a solenoid in the transmission, or the pump, or something in the valve body. You will probably need a shop have a look at it.
I would get a couple of estimates from different shops.

Lots of possibilities from a bad solenoid pack to a broken gear or blown internal seal. No way you're gonna DIY your way out of this. Get it to a shop.

Dodge Caravan 1992 - Transmission Mount- Where to find it?

There is no transmission mount, per se. The engine and transmission are bolted together as a unit, cross-wise, and that unit is what it mounted.

I just went outside and looked at my 1996 Grand Caravan, and my 1995 Plymouth voyager.

Both had one mount on the passenger side above the water pump, one mount on the front of the engine pretty low, and one on the end of the engine, under the battery.

Can you tell me if a 97 dodge caravan transmission 3.3 will interchange with a 3.8. This is the trouble i have had and have decided to put in Transmission. Driving down the road and van sounded like it...

1. Yes the 3.3 and the 3.8 are the same bolt pattern. But the gear ratio in the differential might be different.

2. Did you replace the filter and put it back together? Does it do the same thing after you changed the filter? If it was an electrical issue with speed sensors or the solenoid pack, reverse would still work.

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
