1997 Dodge Caravan Sport. I was driving normal then it quit pulling. Now have 3 forward gears no more than 8 miles an hour. No reverse. Dropped trans pan small metal on magnet.Fluid looked ok. Changed...


The correct fluid to put in a 1997 van is (ATF-3). Sounds like you need to make adjustment on both the forward and reverse bands of the transmission to correct your problem. The kickdown band (front) forward is located at the top (outside) of the transaxle near the front. To adjust the band,loosen the lock nut approximately 5 turns. With the lock nut loose the adjusting screw should turn freely in case. Tighten the adjustment screw with an inch lb. torque wrench to 72 in-lbs. Then back the screw out 2 1/4 turns, hold the screw in place and tighten the lock nut to 35 ft-lbs. Then after removeing the transmission pan and filter the low-reverse band is located next to the valve body. Loosen the lock nut 5 turns so the adjustment screw is free. Turn the adjustment screw in to 41 in-lbs, then back the screw out 3 1/2 turns. Hold the adjustment screw and tighten the lock nut 10 ft-lbs. Install transmission pan/with gasket and refill transaxle to proper level. Test drive van. Be safe and block the rear wheels before you raise the van and try to work under it. Hope this will help you.

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.

Transmission


It more than likely will. The Caravan/Voyager/Town and country came with two common transmissions, the 3 speed (the dash indicator has just the 3 speeds) and the 4 speed (the D gear has an O around it to indicate overdrive). The 3.0 was commonly paired with the 3 speed.

46RH transmission, no second gear.


Does it shift into 3rd at the right speed? If 2nd is just missing, try adjusting the kickdown band. (front band). The adjustment screw is on the outside of the case.

Transmission noises from a 2000 dodge caravan 2.4L


normally should take 6-8liters when empty.If it is making those noises keep a tow truck on speed dial.Dodge does not make a very strong transmission.Could be that you just need the bands adjusted but I suspect you either need to rebuild or replace it
