I think you might be barking up the wrong tree. Try changing your fuel filter. Often people confuse a plugged fuel filter for transmission problems. I'm not positive, but from what you've descibed it certainly could be. The engine is starving for fuel, and this makes it seem like the transmission is acting up.

The correct fluid to put in a 1997 van is (ATF-3). Sounds like you need to make adjustment on both the forward and reverse bands of the transmission to correct your problem. The kickdown band (front) forward is located at the top (outside) of the transaxle near the front. To adjust the band,loosen the lock nut approximately 5 turns. With the lock nut loose the adjusting screw should turn freely in case. Tighten the adjustment screw with an inch lb. torque wrench to 72 in-lbs. Then back the screw out 2 1/4 turns, hold the screw in place and tighten the lock nut to 35 ft-lbs. Then after removeing the transmission pan and filter the low-reverse band is located next to the valve body. Loosen the lock nut 5 turns so the adjustment screw is free. Turn the adjustment screw in to 41 in-lbs, then back the screw out 3 1/2 turns. Hold the adjustment screw and tighten the lock nut 10 ft-lbs. Install transmission pan/with gasket and refill transaxle to proper level. Test drive van. Be safe and block the rear wheels before you raise the van and try to work under it. Hope this will help you.

Replace the transaxle or see if it can be rebuilt. Those transaxles have incorporated electronic solenoids that can fail causing the codes to appear as you described. One thing you might check prior to getting it rebuilt or replaced is have the computer checked and check all of your wiring connections. Anytime you have a wiring connector on the exterior of the vehicle you can get corrosion issues it may be simply cleaning the connectors, placing dielectric grease on them and reattaching. Before cleaning any connectors always disconnect the negative battery terminal.

Only code p0734 2001 caravan


Hi there:
This code means that the transmission is slipping in high gear and the TCM (TRansmission Control Mocule) logic thinks it has incorrect ratio since it monitors input and output speed. Keep in mind that TCM uses input from the input speed sensor and output speed sensor to determine gear ratios. The TCM then compares the known gear ratio to the calculated gear ratio for the current range.


Check HERE test procedure.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.


Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

My dodge caravan 3.3L shows 5 malfunction codes what do they mean po455 po846 po500 po700 po732


P0455 = Evap leak monitor large leak detected.
This code usually means the gas cap may have been loose or needs the rubber gasket.

P0500 = No vehicle speed sensor signal.
Vehicle speed sensor is located on the transmission near one of the axle shafts (it may need replacing).

P0700 = EATX controller DTC present.
This simply means you have transmission related codes.

P0732 = Gear ratio error in 2nd gear.
This code is of some concern, it means the transmission is slipping in 2nd gear. However the trans may be in limp mode due to the speed sensor code (limp mode means the trans starts out in second gear in order to at least get to a mechanic). The first thing I would do is have these codes cleared as there may be absolutely nothing wrong with the transmission (especially if you pull the trans dip stick and the fluid does not have a burnt smell. The vehicle should drive normally after that. If the check engine light comes back, have the codes scanned ASAP (before any other unrelated code sets). Chances are it may be the output speed sensor if this happens (easy fix). Hope this helps

Regards

Change the output speed sensor as well and clear the vehicle codes either via a scanner or disconnecting the battery.Also make sure the transmission is at the proper fluid level.

99 Dodge caravan - Check engine light on, limp mode, no speedometer. What's up with this trusted friend?


Its very possible that the transmission output speed sensor has gone bad. The output speed sensor is what the speedometer reads for vehicle speed. When you open the hood and look straight down at the front of the transmission you will see two sensors that screw into the side of the transmission case that are about the size of a half dollar, the output speed sensor will be the one on the far right side.

My 91 dodge stealth is in limp mode how do i fix this transmission problem


Your car is in "limp"mode because the computer doesn't know what speed your doing,So it doesn't shift,
There are three possible reasons for this,
#1= input sensor faulty on transmission,
#2=output sensor faulty on transmission,
#3=speed sensor faulty on transmission,
you need to have the transmission codes read to know which one,Autozone checks codes for free.

TRANSMISSION WILL NOT SHIFT INTO THIRD OR FOURTH GEARS


your tranny is going into limp mode,
the computer is not seeing info from the speed sensor,or output sensor,or the input sensor.
if you have the van checked for codes it will tell you which one,none are too expensive
