Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

I think my tranny is going out. When I hit the gas, esp when going up a hill or getting on the freeway it acts like it doesnt want to go like it almost stalls and shakes when I hit the gas. Im not sure what is causing this. I had some kid change my spark plugs a while ago and thats kind of when I noticed it all happening. Advice please =)

Loses lpower going up hills. drives fine but doesnt shift down going up the hills only when i hit the gas hard


If it has high mileage on it probably is the catalytic converter is stopped up. A dead give away is losing power going up hills and not shifting like it used to. A easy test is to put your hand over the exhaust pipe wear a glove as it may be hot. Then have a friend give it gas if it is stopped up you will be able to hold the exhaust from coming out. That is just a simple test but more then likely it is stopped up . You can get a after market cat for about half the price of a new one . Good luck.

96 Ford Explorer is studdering (misfiring) when going up hills


I have the same exact problem that just started immediately AFTER I got a tranny service where they changed the Trans Fluid, Trans Filter, Fuel Filter. Took it back and they say nothing is wrong with it. Took it to the dealer thinking I could get some REAL answers... they just told me to replace spark plugs, wiring & coil, for $900. Only studders when quickly accelerating above 40mph. I've check other forums, they say to clean the Mass Air Flow sensor. Haven't tried it yet. This seems the easiest before replacing spark plugs. Any other suggestions anyone?? Please.....

JERKING AT FREEWAY SPEEDS


the spark unit is shorting out to system ground. remove the spark unit and look carefully at where it is mounted and look for small cracks in the electrical insulation material that was poured into it at the spark unit factory. if water gets into this area, havoc occurs.
