Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

I shifted my 2000 Sport into Low to climb a hill it went about 50 feet and then almost died. I backed out as reverse was fine. Then it was stuck in 2nd gear and the "Check Engine" came on (which I found out is "Limp mode". I disconnected the battery and the light went out and it drove fine for 100 feet then went into "Limp" again. The trans fluid is fine and it only has 82000. easy miles. I purchased the in-put & out-put speed sensors but they appear to be exactly alike and I need to know the location of each?

They are usually both located on the transmission, however check out chrysler and dodge minivan forums, they will have write ups and pics to show the exact location, the haynes manual is good to have as it may also have pics of the location of the sensors.
Hope this helps

Power loss in range rover p38 4.6 lt when going up hill


the p38 is a bit sluggish and slow on long steep hills, really not geared for performance but more as a piece of heavy equipment. strong horsepower wise very formidable powertrain but you're not going to have that get up and go that many drivers look for. couple quick suggestions you may want to check your plugs and wires a common weak spot in the ignition system, and i might suggest also running i can of seafoam through your engine. you deposit in your gas tank runs through with the half a tank of gas. i'm not a big advocate of fuel additives or octane boosters but in the case of seafoam it's definitely a worthwhile and proven product. don't forget also your sport mode button down next to your shift lever push that button down and it keeps your transmission from overdrive so you can accelerate into freeway traffic and climb hills without your transmission shifting

When putting car in reverse or drive car dies


sounds like your automatic transmission is stuffed, take it to a mechanic for a second opinion but it seems to me like you'll need to either rebuild or replace the transmission

Losing power going up hills


sounds pretty normal. what speed do you try out the passing gear? anything above 35-45 mph and it will feel like neutral. Passing gear is actually only 1st gear. When you press down the pedal, it forces the transmisson to shift into low gear.

2000 MONTERO SPORT SOMETIMES THE TRANSMISSION WONT GO IN REVERSE, NOT ALL THE TIME? \r\n ALSO, STARTS RIGHT UP, WHEN YOU PUT IT IN GEAR DIES UNLESS YOU DRIVE WITH BOTH FEET TO KEEP THE GAS PUSHED DOWN.


Is it a manual shift? If so you may need more clutch fluid.If automatic make sure you have enough brake fluid so you're able to put car in gear.Also make sure you have enough transmission fluid.As for the both feet on the accelerator....sounds like you need a new fuel line.Also make sure there is no water or sediments in gas tank.Try gas treatment to help with that.If you do end up having a transmission problem replacing it will be costly and you might as well just sell her and get another vehicle.Good Luck!

2001 montero sport check engine light on..neutral light flashing..doesnt shift right and jerks when you put the shifter in reverse, but does reverse ok, almost feels like it is stuck in 3rd gear..happened...


Your check engine light is on because the computer picked up a problem with the vehicle. Take it to Autozone and they will scan it for free. They will let you know what is wrong and what parts you may need.

Power fadded over a few days now its dead. Fuel Pump?


It's quite possible to ruin a fuel pump by letting it run dry, especially if it already has years of use. When you first turn on the key, leave the door open and see if you can hear a high pitched whine for about three seconds. That would be the pump priming the system. If you don't hear it, then the pump isn't working. Be sure to turn the key of for about 10 seconds before you try listenng again(it has to reset). It can be hard to hear, especially over the key buzzer.

2001 Montero Sport does not have power when climbing mountain pas


Considering what has been done, the problem sounds like a fuel issue. Do a fuel pressure test, it should be 47-50 psi with vacuum line pulled off fuel pressure regulator. If low replace filter and try again. If still low replace pump. Please make sure to rate me when done. Thanks
