1989 Dodge Caravan Tranmission

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  1989 Dodge Caravan Tranmission

it started popping down into 2nd gear (limp Mode). Found I could shut the engine off and it reset the transmission. works for a little bit and then starts it again Then it started hopping when you started from a stop.
I changed the Computer with no luck
I never had any problems at all when it was warmer outside
seems like it is Cold Related

Any Help?

Verify the oil level and color. If it's blackish, bad news. Change the oil in it anyways, maybe it's lost most of its viscosity. An easy and cheap idea, either way, it'll do it some good. :thumbs:

That would help but it sounds like a bad sensor to me. :thumbs:

i would do a filter change/fluid flush. The old caravan tranny's are famous for torque converter problems, especially the four speeds. If you do have a four speed make sure you fill it with atf +3, or you are wasting your time.
