Question about 1991 Dodge Caravan
Have to stop engine and re-start, then ok until I come to red light or stop, then won' shift again. Have to stop and start again.
No engine problems? Then the transmission filter is clogged, most likely its never been changed and the fluid has lost its lubricity. Different transmissions show different symptoms. If you take it to a shop it will get expensive. They'll probably suggest ether changing the transmission control module (TCM) or transmission itself. Just give it a tune-up. Before anything check the transmission fluid level. Make sure its not low, if it is let me know to help you find the leak. If you have a leak you'll have to fix that first. No matter what you still have to give it a tune-up.

The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.
