1994 caravan...transmission problem?....speed output sensor ?

While driving at normal road speed then dropping below 45mph sounds like it drops into 1st gear .If continuing to drive the engine SOUNDS like your in neutral and is hard to get up to speed, engine racing. If you pull over and shut it down it works fine as long as you don't go over 45mph then have to slow to below that.

    problems going over 45mph or on a long ride

  • kuroda277 Sep 03, 2008

    I have a 1993 caravan c/v 3.3 engine with the four speed automatic. It shifts into second gear and stays there until u stop and restart engine and then it will do it again in a few miles. I have had a trans shop replace the solenoid body and I have replaced the engine computor.. Still doing the same thing.. This transmission was rebuilt by amoco a few years ago and has less than 60,000 miles on the rebuild.. It does not slip , it just goes to second gear and stays there until you stop and restart engine.. Help......

My question is where is the input/output speed sensors located on this transmission, my input sensor is bad but I'm going to go ahead and change both cant find where the output sensor is located


you do know that you have to drop the transmission to get at the input sensor

the only sensor outside the transmission case is the vehicle speed sensor

Could be the speed sensor in the transmission. You could replace the sensor or monitor the output with a meter.

The input speed sensor is right below where the cooler lines are clamped the the transmission. The output speed sensor looks exactly the same as the input and is located to the right ( as you standing in front of the vehicle) of the input speed sensor.

I have a 1994 dodge grand caravan with a 3.8 v6 the transmission get stuck in second gear after driving for 30 min was told it could be a speed sensor


The speed sensor could indeed be preventing the van from switching gears. Have this checked into or you could do it yourself by reading this article and following the link it provides for testing. http://www.engine-light-help.com/speed-sensor.html

Hope this helps:)

My 2001 Grand Caravan speedometer just quit working out of the blue. I notice now that it quit, when the ignition is off the needle drops below the zero mark, when its on it raises up to the zero but...


no fuses for that. on this model, i got a 2000, there is an input and an output speed sensor on the transmission. check for loose/broken wires and connection there first. then test sensors if the problem is not resolved yet. they transmit the signal to the computer that returns it to the speedometer

Can you tell me if a 97 dodge caravan transmission 3.3 will interchange with a 3.8. This is the trouble i have had and have decided to put in Transmission. Driving down the road and van sounded like it...


1. Yes the 3.3 and the 3.8 are the same bolt pattern. But the gear ratio in the differential might be different.

2. Did you replace the filter and put it back together? Does it do the same thing after you changed the filter? If it was an electrical issue with speed sensors or the solenoid pack, reverse would still work.

Sounds like you need a new speed sensor in the transmission,both the speedometer and the transmission rely on a signal from it to work properly.

My 2002 trailblazer is making a noise when I go over 45 mph and appears to not be going in gear quickly at that speed


Check your transmission fluid level and/or have the fluid changed. If problem persist have a transmission professional at a dealership or transmission shop service it.
