Question about Dodge Caravan
Recently had a transmission rebuild, transmission fluid replaced. but no flush.
Sounds like the bands need adjusting and the valve body needs to be cleaned. parts store has a valve body kit but its not for faint hearted. tranny valve jobs must be done in clean organized area.other possibility is the trans-oil cooler inside radiator broke. that'll ruin tranny and cooling system. only link of tranny and heat is at trans-oil cooler in radiator

Chances are your engine light is on too. Your actually in 2nd right now, this is called limp mode. It's built into your cars computer to avoid catastrophic failure when a sensor or other issue arrises. You should go imediately to your dealer and have them read the codes and provide you with a proper estimate. My best guess at this time would be a speed sensor.

normally should take 6-8liters when empty.If it is making those noises keep a tow truck on speed dial.Dodge does not make a very strong transmission.Could be that you just need the bands adjusted but I suspect you either need to rebuild or replace it

You have to use ATF4 transmission fluid for the dodge caravan. If you changed the fluid and the filter, a quick relearn has to be performed by a technician. It requires a special computer device. Hope this helps.

Most likely solution is the gear selector fork in the transmission has broken and is no longer engaging the gears.
Repair requires transmission removal and partial overhaul.
