Disconnect the Negative Cable from the Battery.
There may be a plastic covering over the Solenoid. Remove this, it is not necessary on replacing it.
Clean the area around the Solenoid - especially behind where dirt, grime etc. builds up. You do not want this stuff falling into the opened channels when you remove the Solenoid.
There should be an 8mm bolt going down into the wiring harness. Loosen this bolt - it should not pull all the way out.
There should be two (2) clips connecting the wiring harness to the connector. One in front the other to the rear. Unclip and disconnect the wiring harness.
Make sure you place a catch pan under the area you are working. When you remove the Solenoid Transmission Fluid will spill out.
There should be two (2) 10mm bolts accessible from the top holding the Solenoid onto the Transmission. Remove both bolts.
The Solenoid is now removable from the Transmission.
There may or may not be a gasket. Gaskets are available at most auto parts stores.

SOURCE: Transmission Removal and replacement instructions

I replaced the tranny in my 98 Grand Caravan Sport. It was time consuming but not terribly difficult. All of the sensors were on different jacks so it was easy to put the electrical parts back together. The flywheel was a pain though, the holes didn't quite match up but the person I bought the replacement tranny from told me to drill the hole out larger and it was fine. I would label every thing you can. Get a script for valum and take your time, thats what I did. It helped to have someone there to help me drop the tranny and lift the new tranny in. Hope this helps. I will keep an eye on this post in case there is something I can help with.

Dodge caravan dies when in gear


Vacuum leaks. ( hissing noise around the engine). Tune up (plugs and wires). clean the throttle body(inside of it). All these can cause rough idle. The dieing can be from transmission problems. Can you rev the van up and keep it running while in gear? Or does it die then too? You can replace the solenoid pack on the outside of the transmission for around $250, if you do it yourself. If you do this, DO NOT get any dirt in the holes of the transmission where the solenoid pack sets. Clean it well before you remove the old pack.

What causes codes 700 and 740 to set on a 2005 dodge grand caravan?


P0700 is just the powertrain control module being signed to turn the check engine light on to indicate alert you to a transmission issue. As far as the other one goes you likely have a failed Torque converter clutch so the solenoid would not fix the problem. You will need to remove the transmission and replace the TC

to remove the starter from motor you need to disconnect the battery negative wire from the battery. then remove the battery wire and start wire from solenoid. remove the bolts holding the starter to the transmission bellhousing. then remove starter. installation is the reverse of removal.

1998 dodge grand caravan transmission slipping


A good place to start would be a fluid and filter change, and be sure you use proper (recommended) fluid. Then I would remove connectors to solenoids, modules etc, on transmission and clean them well with contact/electrical cleaner. Disconnect battery prior just for sake of safety & to make sure no circuits get shorted while doing it.Then give it a try, and see if any improvement. If still acting up, I'd spend a few bucks on at least having diagnosed by a knowledgeable technician at a dealership, or a transmission repair chain. Sometimes it can be a solenoid or speed sensor, or something not too expensive. Once you have proper diagnosis, then make your decision.
