SOURCE: transmission input speed sensor location

It is located on the front of the transmission. you will see 2 of them one on the left under small transmission lines it is the input then to the right behind the radiator overflow there is the other one. Easiest way to change them is with a 1" deep well socket

SOURCE: radiator fans not working 1998 dodge caravan

First thing I would check is the fuse or the fan relay, located in the power distribution box under the hood. If that's not the problem, then I would find the coolant temperature sensor, unplug it with the key on and the fans should run.

SOURCE: O2 sensor bank1 sensor 1 where is it located on

prev.gif next.gif Oxygen Sensor I think that bank1 sensor1 stands for the upstream o2 sensor vs. the sensor2 which is the downstream o2 sensor. Both the 4 cyl. and 6 cyl. employ 2 o2 sensors.

If you get it wrong, changing both might be a good idea.
Removal & Installation 2.4L Engine NOTE: These engines use 2 heated oxygen sensors.
Upstream HO2S1 To Remove:
NOTE: If the engine temperature is lower than 120 °F (48 °C), the HO2S1 sensor may be difficult to remove. Excessive force could possibly damage the threads in the exhaust manifold.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Disconnect the electrical connector from the sensor.
  4. Using an oxygen sensor removal tool carefully remove the heated oxygen sensor.
To Install:
  1. Clean the threads in the exhaust manifold with an 18 mm X 1.5 + 6E tap.
  2. If reusing the original sensor, coat the sensor threads with an anti-seize compound. New sensors come treated with anti-seize compound on the threads and do not require an additional coating.
  3. Install and tighten the sensor 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  4. Connect the electrical connector and install the wiring on the bracket.
  5. Lower the vehicle.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.

your transmission is in "limp mode"
it will not up shift because there is a problem with one of three sensors,
1=input sensor
2=output sensor
3=speed sensor
the computer won't let the transmission up shift because it doesn't know how fast you are going ,
