I looked for recalls for your model but there were none relating to your issue.You do not have a Grand Caravan right?I did notice that the powertrain had a lifetime limited warranty.Are you the original owner?If you are,I would get on the phone with the manager of the dealer you bought it from and find out exactly what limited lifetime covers.If he won't help you do anything about it,I wouldalso tell him that you have contacted a lawyer and he suggested if they dealer doesn't do something,we will pursue this legally.I have done that before and gotten results,but I had actually talked to a lawyer,just briefed him so I had a name if they asked.I would call Dodge corporate and whoever answers the phone,I would ask to speak to their boss.I would at least like to know if you're the original owner.Good luck!

You need to go to a transmission shop and have them diagnose this problem. It sounds like a bad TCM, Transmission Control Module, or a clogged transmission filter but they have the test equipment to make sure.

Is a 1999 dodge caravan worth $300 if it needs tranny at 95000 miles?

I'd say yes. Including the cost of a transmission it could be operational for under 1500 dollars. I kept up on the '98 I bought for my wife with regular maintenance and it finally died at over 300,000 miles. Most newer Chryslers have a 100,000 mile warranty, so theoretically it could have still been under warranty. Please rate my solution, and leave a testimonial.

2008 dodge caravan 31k miles. I devevelped a drining hum.

Since you are still under warranty, I suggest getting your transmission checked at a dealer. We had to get ours replaced at about 28M miles. It was making wierd noises, especially in a parking lot at low speeds and when turning slowly.

There is no dipstick for the transmission fluid on our model :(

If you recently changed tires, then that could possibly be the noise too.

My 2003 dodge caravan whines and when it seems

Hate to tell you this , but sounds like the pump is going in the transmission. First check the fluid level to make sure the fluid is up to full. The fuild and filter need to be replace at 60,000 miles. Clogged transmission filter can restrict the fluid flow into the transmission fluid pump.

Transmission in 2008 dodge grand caravan vibrates in reverse on incline.

The revers band sounds like it needs to be adjusted so it's not slipping. You caravan is a 2008 so the transmission should still be under warranty unless you do lots of driving around, if it's past the warranty coverage, bring it to a transmission shop and have the fluid, filter replaced and the revers band adjusted since the transmission pan is going to be dropped. Good luck friend. Keep me posted if you want to try to tighten up the bands your self, nut i think it's better for you to take it in, Less mess and job will be done right with warranty.
