Sounds like you are experiencing problems with your transmission or your tcm (trans control module) located next to your computer.Is there any mil on? That will help also.

06 uplander rpms go up and down when driving on freeway


Probably too late but for other users searching: You probably have the 4T65 transmission like I did. This is the vehicle "hunting" in and out of overdrive on the highway (marked "D" on your dash) and you're probably on level (or close to) ground. You have two options: drive in the gear selection "3" (more fuel consumption though) or change your speed. I used to drop down to 53 MPH and it would stop, or on the highway @ 65 for it to go away.
Seems to be common in this trans around 60 MPH. Also - start saving for another vehicle or repair. This trans will start to slam into 2nd gear from a stop after it warms up (internal solenoid fix required) OR it will shudder horribly from a stop after a highway run. My fix was to replace the solenoid in the trans (there's video on YT) by pulling the right side of the drivetrain off the van and pulling the trans cover. If you go this route - you *must* ensure no -and I mean NO- dirt gets in that tranny while the cover is off.
Good luck!

My gears are P- park R- reverse D- drive (2 Drives one with a box or circle around it) what is each D for


  • D with no circle is just "Drive." this a lower geared drive and best used around time as it provides a better pick up and over all response.
  • OD is "Over Drive" and used for cruising speeds ove 50+ MPH down the highway. Over Drive allows the vehicle to cruise at a more sustained speed with less engine speed and provides better fuel consumption.
  • While you are in Drive going down the highway and your speed reaches 50 MPH just switch gears into Over Drive and you will notice your car "relax" a bit. Remember you don't want to switch from Over Drive to Drive until you get down to around 45MPH or it can be a little rough on your engine and transmission.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I have a 1997 Ford F-150 Lariat, and when pulling a trailer it makes a chattering noise when the gas pedal is pressed down to pick up speed. When going up a hill it will not go passed 40 mph and starts to...


If tranny is manual shift you may have a bearing and or bad gear. Try changing tranny fluid. Check manual for correct fluid may use tranny fluid rather than gear oil. I recommend using Royal Purple fluid or gear oil. This very expensive but will slicken up the shifting and extend bearing and gear life.

I have a 1999 Mazda 626 5 speed and my rpms seem to always be high weather I'm driving n town, 4th gear 30 mph 2100 rpm, or on the highway 5th gear 70 mph and rpms at 3100. This I'm sure is killing my gas...


check clutch for slipping condition,mayb due to worn clutch disc or a oil contaminated disc or a weak pressure plate not locking disc to flywheel therefore giving u a slipping condition and higher than normal rpms

Is it better to go into D3 wihile car is moving or stopped?


Well every gear has its limitations. I am not sure what the mph ranges for each gear are, but i've gotten to 60+ mph in 3rd gear. The only thing about driving on the freeway in 3rd gear is that it is alot less efficient mileage wise. Your turning more RPMS while on the freeway in 3rd gear so you burn up alot more gas.
Driving in D3 is driving in 3rd gear. It could burn up the tranny but it depends on the vehicle itself. It is not really made to do highways speeds in 3rd gear. It should be in 4th or 5th (OD)

2000 grand caravan won't go above 70 mph. high rpms


First I need to ask is it a 4 speed or a 3 speed transmission. If it's a 4 speed when driving down the road pull it from drive to third gear. You shpuld hear the engine speed up if it does not then that means you have on 4th gear and you will have to take it to a transmission shop. If it's a 3 speed then just count the shift points if all 3 gears are present then drive down the road and see if the van goes into tcc. When you mean the rpms are high how high are they.

Maybe a transmission problem?


If you're only in "D", you should switch to "OD" when driving at higher speeds. "D" only allows you to move up to third gear whereas "OD" will move you into fourth. You're over-working your transmission by driving in "D".
