It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Dodge Caravan transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Dodge Caravan transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your Caravan isn’t working at all.

1987 Dodge Caravan Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Dodge's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Dodge? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Caravan’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Caravan is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Caravan's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Dodge Caravan transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Dodge. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
