Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan
When im driveing in traffic every once in a while the transmission will stick in a low gear and not up shift. when i clear the codes and turn off and restart the van it works fine till it happens agian
What code number? Sounds like output shaft speed sensor. Very common on this vehicle. Can be changed quite easily with a 1 inch socket and a drain pan. Part is less than 50 dollars from dealer.

sounds like you should start by dropping the pan and changing the filter, put cheap fluid in it or reuse the old fluid if its not too bad bring it to a shop and have a transmission flush performed with a good flush machine your valve body is sticking and this should clear things up please rate -jeff

see my comments, not 100% sure that it was the out put speed censor or not, but after reconnecting the wires to a new censor and reconnecting the battery and clearing codes it worked. connection was not clipped may have been loose

Here is some possible reasons why your transmission is having those problems .
* The gear shift linkage is binding
* There is an internal problem in the transmission
* The throttle cable is broken or disconnected
* The vacuum modulator on the transmission is faulty or the vacuum line is damaged
* The electronic transmission control circuit may be faulty

I was told to change my Transmission Control Module,located on the transmission . You can get it new for under $200 but, I was advised to get it from a junk yard it's alot cheaper and its easier. I hope this helps
