Question about 1997 Dodge Caravan
3 Speed or 4-Speed?
The Transmission Solenoid has a Gasket, which is where it may be coming from. The Solenoid is easy to remove and the Gasket is a one piece, easily to install.
Depending on the type of Transmission:
The Input, Output Speed Sensors; the Neutral Start/Back-up (Safety) Switch; or the PRNDL Switch; are all screwed in. Each may have a rubber o-ring that may be defective causing the leak.
1. Wipe down as much expended fluid as possible.
2. Use a Mechanic Mirror and Flashlight with the engine running to check the culprit!
3. Rollup/Bind-up Paper Towels and wrap it around each individual switch, sensor or at the base of the Solenoid.. Run the engine for a while and pull each towel out individually to check for the fluid. The wet(s) are the culprit(s)
Good Luck and let me know if this was helpful!
