Pull out the dip stick and see where the level is. The dipstick is located on the dr. side of the engine compartment near trans. I don't remember if the color of the stick is red or yellow.

2007 dodge caravan 3.3 liter 120000 km , when coming to a stop vehicle jerks or shudders slightly to moderately , the scanner was plugged in by mister transmission and also by diamond transmission but no...


If the problem is due to warped brake discs, you will typically feel a mild pulsing in the peddle when braking firmly. Also, when you are experiencing this shudder, taking your foot off the brake (when safe to do so) should cause it to stop. If that is not the case, I would consider again the transmission. I am on my second Caravan, so I speak from experience. The Caravan transmission should have the fluid changed every 30,000 miles to keep it in top performance, especially if you are carrying any heavy loads or pulling a trailer. When you are slowing to a stop, the transmission must downshift through each of the gears. If it stays in the higher gears at too slow a speed, you will feel a shudder. Sometimes this can be corrected by changing the transmission fluid. Be sure to use the proper Chrysler fluid for your transmission. Typically it is the highest (overdrive) gear that causes the shudder. You can determine this by moving the gear selector from "D" to "3" when you are experiencing the shudder. Other possibilities are alignment, worn stabilizer bar bushings, worn ball joints, and out-of-round tires. Most of these also involve some accompanying noises though. Good Luck.

Check all the fluid to see which one is low. Red fluid can be transmission fluid or red coolant fluid.

Where do I put the transmission fluid in a 2000 dodge grand caravan with a 3.3 liter engine??


You add the fluid in the same place where you check the fluid for the transmission. normally a yellow stick labeled transmission and its under the hood on the driver side of course. 4 thumbs up is appreciated if this helps.

2008 dodge caravan 31k miles. I devevelped a drining hum.


Since you are still under warranty, I suggest getting your transmission checked at a dealer. We had to get ours replaced at about 28M miles. It was making wierd noises, especially in a parking lot at low speeds and when turning slowly.

There is no dipstick for the transmission fluid on our model :(

If you recently changed tires, then that could possibly be the noise too.

How to refill oil in transmission for Dodge caravan 1995 (automatic transmission)?


You refill the transmission through the dip stick tube. Make sure you don't over fill the transmission though, that's just as bad as having low transmission fluid levels.

My 2003 dodge caravan whines and when it seems


Hate to tell you this , but sounds like the pump is going in the transmission. First check the fluid level to make sure the fluid is up to full. The fuild and filter need to be replace at 60,000 miles. Clogged transmission filter can restrict the fluid flow into the transmission fluid pump.

Transmission want go in gear want move when put in drive


You have to use ATF4 transmission fluid for the dodge caravan. If you changed the fluid and the filter, a quick relearn has to be performed by a technician. It requires a special computer device. Hope this helps.

2004 Dodge Grand Caravan Water pump


If it's red, it's transmission fluid. Coolant would be green. Check the fluid level, don't let it get low, Chrysler minivans are prone to transmission troubles, and low fluid levels over time will ruin a a transmission. And be sure not to overfill, it's just as bad for the trans. Have the leak checked out and repaired, good luck
