1991 dodge caravan tansmission problem

I heard a noise with the transmission and then it started slipping and i checked and it was leaking and then i could only drive about 5 miles per hour and i drove it home and i left it over night and then i tried to move it but it moved a little and then it wouldnt move so i put more fluid in and it seems to be leaking some where near the fire wall. I need some possible solutions that i might be to fix it, if its a gasket or hose or is it seized?

    i have a leak from the differential cover and if i take that off will anything fall out of there? I'm not too experienced with transmissions but know how to work on engines and the outer parts like alternators and starters and drive shafts etc... So if you can let me know it would be very helpful Thank you again.

Tranmission slipping. Think I have a leak underneath the motor. What could it be and should I chech it or have it looked at?


A leak under the motor could be anything. Is it motor oil, transmission fluid, coolant??? Anything can leak and it can start from the top. It will all end up under the motor.

But if you feel the transmission is slipping then its best to have it checked. A person cannot diagnose many things, including a slipping transmission, or the web. If you let it go though it could leave you stranded at any time.

If the trans fluid smells burnt, brown, many miles on the transmission and/or many miles between transmission services (or never serviced) then most its in need of repairs. With a slipping transmission, a fluid and filter change is not going to fix it. Having clean fluid in there may cause it to slip more and leave you stranded sooner.

Why does my dodge caravan keep slipping out of gear?


Only 2 reasons for this, low transmission fluid level or a malfunction in the transmission due to orn parts or a hydraulic pressure leak. Check the fluid HOT and make sure it is between the two lines (low and full) on the dip stick.

Transmission will not up shift seem like its stuck 1st or 2nd fluid is not burnt does not seem to slip it does have check engine light on but do not know code yet.


Your transmission seems to have gone into a condition called "limp in". This is caused by the transmission control module recognizing a problem in the operation of your tansmission. "limp in" is used to protect the transmission from further damage but still allow you to reach a service facility. The transmission is onluy able to use 2nd gear and reverse during this condition. You will have to have the transmission fault determined by a computer scan. An automotive repair facility can advise you further regarding repair.
Good Luck

The reverse light switch is mounted on the transmission (at the front just above the oil pan) most likely has transmission fluid leaking through it and shorting out the switch -- using soap or wd40 will only solve your noise for a short time - remove belt and check your belt tensioner bearing

I own a 1992 Dodge Caravan and somtimes it goes into second gear


You need to have a shop scan the TCM for codes. Then you can determine what is wrong. These are good for having bad turbine shaft and output shaft speed sensors.
