Question about 1997 Dodge Caravan
I drive a '97 dodge caravan, lots of miles on it (upwards of 165k). But, the car has been running GREAT. No engine trouble - nothing. I felt completely confident to drive a distance. So today I drove about an hour from my house. I came to an intersection where I needed to make a right turn. There was a bit of an upward incline going into the turn and then once I made the turn, I would go over a kinda steep bridge. Mind you, NO transmission probs before this. All of a sudden, I'm accelerating, trying to continue up this incline and the engine starts racing. Every time I try to restart and go forward, I'm rolling backwards down the hill. It won't kick into gear. The fluid levels were fine when I left the house. What the heck did I do wrong!?!? What would cause a perfectly fine transmission to just "go"... What's the problem here and is it terribly expensive to fix? I just had it towed to a local regular repair shop based on a friend's recommendation...is this something that your average mom & pop repair shop can fix?
