Rolls in park


The parking brake can be bad or stuck. There is not much to them to begin with. For the transmission, there are several potential problems.

You may just need an adjustment, as the Park is on one extreme end of the shift from the rest. It may not quite be locking.

Inside the trans there is a lever called a pawl. Can't say why it is called that but it is suppose to wedge between gears notches inside the trans. This is suppose to lock the shaft. If the pawl lever is broke, it has no end to jam in its position. The broken part would be loose inside the trans.

I see that you were on a driveway. It could do it anywhere. Remember Driver training to hook front wheels toward downgrade hills and for the back of the front wheels to hook the curb on upgrades when parallel parking.

Even so, the Parking brakes are not that good to depend on when the trans does not lock in place. Take it somewhere to check trans linkage.

Where is the oil filter on dodge 2012 grand caravan


The oil filter location on the 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan with a 3.6L engine is on top of the engine. Standing in front of the van, look slightly to your left on top of he engine. just where the air intake goes to the engine. You will see a 2.5 in black cap with a large hex nut make on top. The cap is labeled "Do Not Open With Engine Running'. You filter is inside this cylinder.

My 2006 charger is stuck in park in the driveway


Try rocking the car back and forth while trying to shift out of park.
Some cars need the brake pedal pressed to shift as well...

Had a caravan once and if it was placed in park and it rolled slightly, it would put pressure on the trans...locking it up to where I couldn't shift out of park.

Hope this helps...

03 cts i put it in park on a hill and let go of the brake then it started to click and slowly roll back


Your trying to ruin the transaxle.

Read your owners manual,no vehicle is designed to hold on a hill,with just the trans parking pawl

You never had it in park ,in the first place,what you heard was the parking pawl, trying to engage the teeth on the parking gear

Your suppost to put the trans in park,apply the parking brake,then let off the foot brake,on all vehicles.

I am parked on a slight hill and my Hummer H2 (2003) will not go into gear. Any suggestions?


well depending on witch way you are on the hill if the back is going downwards have someone push on the back of it while you try to put in gear. make sure to always put the parking brake on before you put it in park when on a hill this keeps it from putting all the weight on the trans.

2003 Grande Caravan Trans fluid capacity


Have you checked the owners manual? Called the dealer or a local transmission shop? Also, does it have an external cooler? this will make a difference. Are you changing the fluid and filter and need to know how much to put in? If so start with 3 liters/quarts and then cycle through the gears from park to low allowing each gear to engage. keep checking the fluid level as you go, fluid is checked with the vehicle running and in park.
