Question about 1994 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

1994 caravan 3-speed tran. 3.0 engine

The transmission shifts late when cold, it sometimes takes 5 minuets to get into high. Will putting new gaskets in the kick-down servo fix this or do I need to be looking at the valve body. Or what else? I have to take it out because of a fluid leak at the front seal.

You have a problem in the direct drum,also known as the front drum,or 3rd gear drum.The most common problem in that drum is the inner rubber lip seal shrinks and hardens and doesnt seal well.Alot of times it burns the clutches in the process,so i would advise just going ahead and rebuilding the entire trans,because if you just patch repair that drum,then next month it will be the other drum failing,and,and..Parts list,670 trans:Banner overhaul kit with steels.Filter.Bushing kit.Thrust washer kit.Remanufactured torque convertor.Look at the planetaries very closely too because they are bad about wearing excessively,and have seen some very bad low gear planet failures..

For rpm and tran gearing only for tran. Dose it down shift when hot or cold The 2 sensor are buy tran Line there white one should be one 3 wire and one 2 wires. If they are from frost trans I would get new one. There about 25 dollers a peace Now the voltage could be a back feed from ground. Check ground wire from firewall to engine.

My 1995 buick lesabre electronic transmission- it shifts at the wrong speeds and sometimes will not shift into high gear on the highway, but sometimes it will work. and sometimes it loses gear on th


First off, have you changed your trans fluid lately. sounds like you need a trans flush. when you drop the trans pan and replace the filter and fluid you only get 3 to 4 quarts of transfluid. your trans holdt 12 to 15 quarts. so have it flushed completely cost $80 tp $120 but beats buying a new or rebuilt trans. always make sure you have the right amount of trans fluid. underfilling will cause lose of pressure and not shift properly. over filling a trans will cause over pressure and cause worse problems.

1994 nissan altima sometimes sluggish at take off, high rpms when changing gears


This sounds like a slipping transmission , check the fluid level first and make sure its full, if its full then you have ****** problems and may need to have ****** rebuild done,

Another thing is to make sure the trans passing gear cable is connected at the throttle where the gas cable is.

Try using a chemical flush and follow the instructions on the container. Try changing the trans filter and gasket. This is the cheapest thing to try first since the vehicle is still running. If it continues, Iwould try to find a trusted transmission shop in your area (who may also do free diagnosis) and get there opinion sisnce they will be able to see, feel, smell, and use diagnostic equipment.

Engine speed hunts on idle. Auto trans slow shift.


The fast idle valve is inside the throttle body. Sometimes it backs out and needs turned back in (it's threaded). This will cause the loping idle.

Get transmission filter changed with new fluid. Honda does not recommend transmission flushing.

Caravans are known for transmission failures. Sometimes it's just a speed sensor or computer problem, but most of the time you need a rebuilt trans. Don't fall for the trans flush might fix it story. On older or high miles trannies, flushing can cause more problems than it solves. Find a good trans shop not just your regular garage and have them take a look. If you do need a rebuilt trans look up engine and trans rebuilding shops in the yellow pages or google. Buy it directly and save a lot of money. If you regular garage won't install it for you then find an independent mechanic that will (some garages won't let your bring in your own parts because they lose all the money they make by marking up the cost of parts).
