1996 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Dodge tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Caravan’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Caravan transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Dodge Caravan’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
