If the engine is actually seized you will not be able to easily remove the transmission bell housing bolts. I usually drop the transmission out with the engine, as I find that easier when the engine is seized.

    See if you can Turn crank pully, by plicing a socke and a brakeover bar and see if you can turn . If not it's locked up and needs to be checked out for rebuild or replacement. hope this helps. good luck.

You won't want to get a new one, it isn't economic. Try a motor wreckers which specializes in this model, and swap springs if needed. You could also try a motor trimmer, but I think he will send you to the motor wreckers again.

Now a trick. If you have all the pieces, it is possible to tack weld them together again. Any competent stick welder can do this. The springs may again break in a while, but it is worth a try.

Hi! My car is a Dodge Grand Caravan 2005, the problem is with the right side automatic door, when i press the button on the car or the remote control it start opening but stops on 1/4 wide then i have to...

im not 100% sure how these doors work if they are hydrolic or motor driven, cold weather may play a part in the problem.

if hydrolic the cold may reduce power in the sytem and if motor driven lubricant in the rails maybe tacking causing the door safety to kick in as strain on the motor may set of anti trapping device if a hand had got in the way etc. try moving the vehicle to a warm garage or simular for a few hours and see if problem persits.

Driver side door won't lock electronically

very common problem is the door lock actuator. i would recommend replace that. a good idea also would be to remove the door panel and check all the rods that connect to the assembly and make sure one didnt pop off.

97 dodge ram window and door lock problems

Hi my names is Allen!

Chrysler vehicles have a lot of problems with the regulator/motor assemblies, but first lets make sure its not the switch. See if you can get it to stop working again, once it stops go to the other switch and see if it works from that switch. If it does not work from either switch, then the most likely cause is the regulator/motor assembly.

Before running out and buying the part I have a question, when the window quits working, does all the other windows work ok? If they do, go buy the part. If they all the windows are doing the same thing you may have a switch or wiring problem.

Now, on your door locks, does none of the locks work or just one lock?

For further asistance you may reach me at FixYa!
