My 2002 Dodge Caravan SE (2.4L) doesn't want to kick into gears

Couple days ago, my 2002 Dodge Caravan SE (2.4L engine) doesn’t want to kick into gear. It happen every time I stop and try to step on a gas pedal, it feels like it doesn’t want to go. But when I get it going, it’s fine. It drives ok on the highway. It also happens when I try to drive up an incline. I bought it couple years back and I’m not sure the previous owner even service the transmission. Could a trany gone badly with only 77K miles on it? If you have any suggestion or advice, PLEASE HELP.

Automatic transmissions can fail at any mileage. First thing you need to do is check the fluid level, make sure the transmission is full, also check the condition of the fluid, burnt odor, strong varnish smell, or signs of contamination. If the level is correct, and the fluid is red in color, without any strong odors, you may have some type of valvebody issue, however, given my experience, these transmissions are prone for failure around this mileage.

Why does my 2002 Dodge Caravan Crank but wont start, check Oil Light on?


The oil light is the serious problem-it may mean the engine has lost oil pressure which is very dangerous. Don't drive with the oil light on- have a shop check your oil pressure with a mechanical oil pressure gauge. The previous owner's negligence in not changing the oil may have caused serious internal damage.
The code is not truly a diagnostic trouble code-it only indicates the battery has been disconnected within the last 50 starts, which would have erased any stored codes if there were any.

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.

I have a 2007 grand caravan. I used one can of ac coolant this seemed to work for a couple of days, Now there is no cool air coming out and the ac clutch dosent even kick on.Is this a bad compressor? Any...


The ac clutch wont kick on if the refrigerant is low. If you have rear air I wouldn't expect one can to do very much for very long. You may not have lost what you put in but it may not be enough to do anything. Try a large can for SUV's with stop leak, engine running, system turned on high, while charging the system. Make sure you screw the cap back onto the port.

I have 2002 doge caravan and transmission stock in 2 gear


This is a issue which arises in Dodge cars when the car experiences a Failure of the Speed Sensor. When a Car experiences a Speed Sensor Failure then the Car goes into a Limp mode in which the Car gets stuck in the Second Gear. Sometimes this issue is accompanied with Check Engine Light. Please consult a Mechanic to check the Speed Sensor.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.
