So it idles fine as long as it is in park. when you shift it into gear it stalls?

Does it feel like if you had a manual transmission and you let out the clutch with your foot on the brake?

if you are in a place you can do this safely without hitting anything try starting it while the transmission is in neutral. After it starts put it into either drive or reverse with your foot off the brake. Does it start to move, then the rpms start to drop fast and then stall?

Again if you can do this in a safe place what happens if you do the above and as soon as it goes into gear you give it a little gas? Will it move and stay running until you come to a stop? If yes the torque converter is locked.

Unfortunately from the description of the fluid and this symptom your likely looking at replacing the transmission.

What should I do if the transmission light goes on in a 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan?


Easy First: Check the transmission fluid level with the vehicle warmed up and parked on a level surface with the gear selector in park. If you're mechanically inclined you can jack up the front of the vehicle and inspect the wiring and plugs on the transmission for obvious damage.

If the above provides no answers, take it to a dealer and have them pull the code that is setting the light.

If you can get the code you'll have a much better chance of getting a good answer. There are a TON of things that can throw a code on a modern transmission.

I have a 2001 dodge grand caravan with a transmission code 700,731,732,733 what is the fix


These codes mean 'incorrect gear ratio' referencing all four forward gears. Try to drain and flush the transaxle. Usually this means the computer can't shift the gear modulator and the line pressure is too low - either because the transaxle is low on fluid or the fluid is too weak to allow proper line pressure. Otherwise the PCM could be faulty - any other codes present?

Transmission fluid all leaked out of 2002 dodge grand caravan, are they easy to replace?


Kelli,

replacing the transmission fluid is easy, but you really need to find out why and from where the old fluid leaked. Under the hood in the engine compartment you will find a dipstick (gauge to check the fluid level) which is essentially the same as the oil dipstick in its performance, but different in location. It should be clearly marked as such.

Pull dipstick out and insert funnel into the opening (filler tube) and add 4 quarts of ATF Plus 3 Type 7176. Start the engine and allow it to idle for approx. 2 minutes

Apply the parking brake and push down on the brake pedal while idling and run the gear selector through the gears, stopping at Park.

Check the dipstick and add fluid so that the level is 1/8 inch below the "ADD" indication on the dipstick if necessary. Allow the van to run for around another 10-15 minutes to achieve normal operating temperatures.

Check the fluid level again to make sure it reached the "Hot" indicator level on the dipstick, and add more fluid if needed and then replace the dipstick in the filler tube.

I would definitely find out why you have leaked all of your transmission fluid before refilling it.

I hope this helps and good luck!b989e6d.png

2001 dodge grand caravan will not shift gears. What could be the problem and how much will it cost to fix?


might be in limp in mode.check fluid level.if fluid level is ok unhook battery for 30 seconds then recrank vehicle.if it does not shift gears or does shift a few times then quits again would suggest letting a transmission expert look at it as you might have a sensor problem or a leak internally.

2001 Dodge grand caravan sport. Transmission slipping/ jerking. Seems to run only in second gear... still slips and jerks. Smells of burnt trans fluid and the level is low on the dipstick.


I need a little mor info. But the reason for the being stuck in 2nd gear is because when something goes wrong with the tranny. it goes into "LIMP" mode wich keeps the trans. from shifting out of 2nd when you are going forward. It does sound like your trans. is gone out though.

My 2001 dodge caravan isn't shifting into overdrive.. and is hard to shift from park to drive and to reverse. any ideas?


The transmission is probably shot. the only other thing could be dirty linkage if you mean "hard" as in hard to move the shift lever. The first thing I would do is get a tranny fluid and filter change.

Shifting gears


the speed sensor is for Overdrive only, it does not shift the gears it sends the signal to the transmission control module that in turn signals the overdrive shift solenoid to engage/shift into OD.
