Have you checked the transmission fluid level and is the check engine light on? with the engine warmed up, idling and in park on a level surface, check the trans fluid level on the dipstick. if it smells burnt,you probably have an internal trans problem. many transmissions use the same band for first gear and reverse gear. you could try and put some trans additive in like the type Lucas makes to see if that helps, but you may need a trans tech to diagnose and disassemble the trans for a permanent repair. transmissions are one of the most overlooked and under maintained part of any vehicle. good luck

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.8L tranny is not shifting after first initial start up it slips in and out of gear


You haven't said whether you've checked your fluid levels. If they're okay, check your Reverse gear. If it's still working well, you're probably gonna want to get it rebuilt.

when ever you replace components in these vehicles that are tranny related you must take the vehicle to a dealer and have the computer relearned for the tranny .cost is 80 to 100 dollars to have it put on a DRB scanner

1998 Dodge caravan AWD transmision slips at full throttle


Have you serviced the transmission latley? fluid, filter, band adjustment

Usually under heavy throttle causing the slip is caused by a seal in the pump leaking off hydraulic pressure letting the clutches slip.

Does it slip in all gears or just 1st.?
Does it slip in reverse?
The reason I ask this is because 1st and reverse use different fluid pathways,

also you can take it to a tranny shop and have them check the fluid pressure at the accumlator port to determine what the exact problem is,but my advice is to just drive it easy and make it last as long as you can,a new or rebuild tranny from a dealer would run 2500 or more.

there is a website www.car-part.com that you can use to find a replacement transmission

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan will not shif into 2nd


Most likely the second gear section of the transmission has gone bad. There are 3 or 4 different gear sections or assemblies in an automatic transmission, when they go bad, they go bad.

2000 dodge caravan will not shift out of 1st gear


Actually it's stuck in second gear. That trans is an A-604 ultradrive and when the sensors read a problem it will put it second gear rather than letting it slip. This is great if you're in the desert and need to get home but it sucks if you're on the highway and trying to keep up with everyone so you don't get run over. From here though you need to go to a transmission shop that has a scan tool and can see what the tranny is doing electronically. Sometimes a bad sensor, solenoids or wiring. Sometimes the sensor is actually reading that the tranny is slipping and needs repair. Bad sensors and solenoid pack are common through those years. I hope this helps.

Transmission only has 1st and reverse 98 dodge ram 1500 5.9L 4X4


If you removed the radiator, the transmission cooler lines on the bottom would be the first place to check. Wouldn't take much to get a kink in the line, and a possible cause for your shifting problems. Best of luck to you.
