Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan
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.

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.
