Question about 1995 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

Power train, transmission questions.

My 1995 caravan will make a slight whinning noise and slight vibration when I turn the wheel to the right at speeds of 30mph to 65mph. I thought it was the right front wheel bearing, so I replaced it. But the problem is still there, and now, when I turn sharply, left or right, I heard a pop sound which comes from the side I'am turning toward. I also have noticed that on cold mornings, when driving the car for the first time, it will not shift into second gear at the proper RPM, it takes longer to shift. I only notice it with second gear. After the van is warm it shifts normally.

Get ready for a overhaul. Ask the transmission companies and they will tell you that us Dodge owners are their best customers. Your torque converter is getting toasted. You have about 10k before it goes. Sorry for the news. Got mine done and now at 213, ooo so it was worth 1700 to get it fixed. got an extra 60 k and going strong.

My 2002 Grand prix makes a whinning sound above 35 mph and follow ground speed not engine speed

Hello Roger Letterly,

Besides NOT carrying many actual Auto-PARTS... AUTOZONE has an interesting trouble-shooting guide... FREE.

It has often perplexed me... but I have HUMORED it a couple of time just to see if there was some basic intelligence (there-in)...

You might want to LOGIN and give your vehicle a serious try.

(highly dependent on your "WHINNING" definition)...
I would suggest the differential gears need to be checked for lube... and properly set-up (first guess)...

but the truth of the matter is everything from road surface to brake surfaces... all your bearings... power steering, water pump, alternator and even your tire tread can cause "WHINNING".

Give AUTOZONE's trouble shooter a try...

Then check your lube... ELSE

Consider buying the FACTORY workshop+repair+manual
to set up the gears in your differential... or take to a MECHANIC & have them professionally evaluated (estimated... FIRST).

Hope this helps.

What might be experienced by transaxil/transmission bearings wear? Rumbling or vibrations?

Kia is bad with wheel bearings ;.About 80 to 100k they start going bad. You have to check them physically with a dial gauge or know how to inspect them in other manners. They cause a rumbling sound when they start to go bad.

2010 grand caravan transmission making noise that sounds like the rotors. Also driving about 65 mph, acted like it lost the gears. Pulled over, turned ignition off, back on, acted like nothing happened..

What you are describing could be the rotors. If they are wearing badly and affect the ABS then the vehicle is not going to run correctly because the abs tells the tcs that there is a problem. Have the brakes checked right away.

It is probably air in the system, jack up the front end of the car and turn the wheels many times left to right all the way then right to left vice versa. This will bleed the system.

Brakes makin nosie

Sounds like a wheel hub assembly is bad without seeing it. Alot of GM vehicles have the ABS wheel speed sensors built into the hub assemblies. Should be able to narrow the noise down by driving the car slightly turn left and right noise should change from loud to soft when turning the wheel. ( if you turn left and noise gets louder hub on right front is noisey.Opposite will occur if left side is bad)

2000 4 wd blazer loud whinning noise

Sounds like you have a bad bearing hub (likely in front but you need to determine which side) You really can't tell by shaking it, unless its falling apart. Remove front brakes and rotors and turn the bearing by hand, any slight roughness is a problem (you can't exert as much force as the vehicle weight of the vehicle)

I have a 1995 pontiac grand prix se when I get up to 35 mph or higher there is a repetative clunking type noise and a vibration it stops when I hit the gas or the brakes it also happens when I turn a...

If I recall correctly, this vehicle is front-wheel drive. If so, have a shop (or if you can your self) check the drive axle that delivers power from the transmission to the front wheel. A boot could be ripped.

Your symptoms sound similar to what happened to a friend of mine's vehicle. The sound would come and go.

I hope that helps!
