Question about Dodge Grand Caravan

2 Answers

My 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan's transmission is slipping with only 44,000 miles on it. Does this mean the transmission is already gone? Or could it be something with the computer? I'm sorry if I am vague I am a person who doesn't know much about cars.

Check transmission fluid level- start and run engine for ten-fifteen minutes- with engine running- open hood- locate transmission dipstick- pull stick -wipe and reinsert- count 5 and pull to check level- if low add transmission fluid thru dipstick tube with a small funnel- add a little at a time- 1-2 cups then recheck with above method

1993 Dodge Caravan transmission is not shifting


Darris, I am afraid this is a bad news. It is no more a candidate for user-level remedies; like you have already done. You may be looking at a rebuild of the transmission.

2006 dodge grand caravan engine sputter after shut off


I'd strongly suggest checking your spark plugs, their cables, the distributor and your ignition, because this could be an electrical problem. Given, though, that you're working in a really tight engine bay in Dodge Caravans made after 2002, especially those with the V6 engine, I'd buy the Haynes manual first. They're around $25 at most, AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts or even Barnes & Noble should have it, (or you can order one even cheaper from Half.com,) and it has things like troubleshooting tables for your specific engine. If you have the straight-four, I'd be inclined to check your spark plugs first, but if it's a V6, it could also be time to replace the solenoid at the ignition, which will mean partially disassembling your steering column. The manual will help you a lot, not just with this, but with anything else that could go wrong on your van, plus it'll help you tune it for the best gas mileage. I took my Mom's '05 Caravan up a whole two miles-per-gallon with the tips in the manual, so it pays for itself. Good luck!

Y 2002 dodge grand caravan sport 3.3 ,have problem engaging transmission into drive in cold weather,transmission will slip in&out before engaging.


If your transmission has gone your best option is a factory rebuild. Most modern transmissions are very sensitive to having clean fluid. You may just be having an issue with dirty ATF automatic transmission fluid. Try a fluid change with the correct ATF.
If this does not work and you have around $2000 to $2500 to spare the Chrysler dealer installed factory rebuild with 36.000 mile warranty is your best option for fixing the Caravan. Any small shop offering the same service for a couple hundred less could be more trouble than it is worth. If you go with the salvage yard transmission there is no warranty on the installation and you could end up paying to install 2 or 3 before you get a good one.

Transmission slipping 97 dodge grand caravan 3.3L V6 108,000 miles. when cold sometimes fails to engage for 20-30 seconds. Fluid leaks very slowly. I keep it full.


IF THE TRANSMISSION SLIPS THE FORWARD CLUTCHES ARE LIKELY WORN OUT OR THE TRANSMISSION HAS LOW HYDRAULIC PRESSURE, BOTH REQUIRE THE TRANSMISSION BE TORN DOWN AND REPAIRED OR OVERHAULED.

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan will not shif into 2nd


Most likely the second gear section of the transmission has gone bad. There are 3 or 4 different gear sections or assemblies in an automatic transmission, when they go bad, they go bad.

2001 Dodge grand caravan sport. Transmission slipping/ jerking. Seems to run only in second gear... still slips and jerks. Smells of burnt trans fluid and the level is low on the dipstick.


I need a little mor info. But the reason for the being stuck in 2nd gear is because when something goes wrong with the tranny. it goes into "LIMP" mode wich keeps the trans. from shifting out of 2nd when you are going forward. It does sound like your trans. is gone out though.

Chrysler has recently extended the warranty for this problem to 7 years/70,000 miles. They will also pay for repairs you have already had on this rear evaporator. Contact your dealer or call 800-992-1997.
