Question about 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan
Having once owned a trans repair shop I
would never tow with that transaxle or any
front wheel drive transaxle
You can look in the grill & see all the coolers
& follow the lines & tubing to power steering
NO factory cooler will be large enough for towing
Do you change your trans fluid every 3 years or sooner,
on ALL vehicles you have ever owned?
Death Sentence to any trans if you don't
Power Steering Fluids as well
You could pull a small trailer just to take leaves to
the recycle center but nothing else.
Those caravans need to come from the factory with a
spare trans,60% of my shops work was those transaxles

SOURCE: I want to know how
The towing capacity of 2006 dodge grand caravan is around 2000lbs unless you have the optional towing group which allows you a towing weight oh up to 3800lbs.
You can increase the towing capacity, but it wouldn't be worth it...stiffening up the rear suspension to carry a slightly higher tongue weight (which will then result in axle failure) and then increasing the cooling capacity of the transmission.
You would also have to increase the horsepower of the engine as it can't pull that effectively.
The best way to increase the towing capacity? Replace the vehicle...you are just going to be a hazard on the road and risk yours and others lives :-( Sorry, not the answer you wanted.
