  1. How often to change ATF4 transmission fluid

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    This has probably been discussed, but with 471 posts returned on the search I did on this forum, it could be in any of them. So I'll ask a fresh question. I had the tranny on my '96 3.8L rebuilt two years ago. The manual says change the filter/fluid at 15K miles, but is that different with...
  2. Harsh 2-3 shift

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Hi, I have a 2004 Chrysler Caravan. Just the same as a Dodge Caravan, just they used Chrysler in export markets. Anyway... I have the 3.3 engine and its a base model. If I drive aggressively the transmission shifts just fine... but if I am just stop and go drivign, accelerate past 25mph and...
  3. Radiator Fluid Leak 3.8 Liter.

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    I recently replaced my radiator. After completing this fun task I had a few little hose leaks that I repaired. I know have a serious leak that started yesterday. I can not see it or reach it physically without tearing the AC compressor off. It seems to be originating near the head (but can not...
  4. A word on transmission service from an expert

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I found this on another site I frequent. This is from someone who tests transmissions for a major manufacturer. He talks about fluid replacement, filter replacement and flushes. The thread is here: It's post #25 from a user called...
  5. 90 grand voyager transmission fluid leak

    1st Generation Chrysler Minivan: 1984-1990
    Hey every one I need some help, my transmission leaks. Not the pan gasket but this thing a little further to the rear of the van. It's like a plate thing bolted to the transmission and looks like it's sealed with gasket sealant stuff. Leaks pretty good and I tightened up 3 bolts that were loose...
  6. Trans Fluid Level, 03 T&C

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Just changed the tranny fluid/filter on my 03 T&C. Dealer parts guy said it takes 4 or 5 qts. Haynes book said 4 qts. Have about 4.5 qts in and worked it through all the gears with engine running as book recommends, checking it in park or N. Tough to read dipstick. I think I am still low...
  7. Anyone have a cold weather windshield washer fluid recipe?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Hi All, I'm in Northern California where we usually don't need a windshield washer fluid that in rated below freezing. But because I am in California, CARB, our own California Air Resource Board idiots, has basically outlawed a pre-mixed winter formula from being sold in my area. To get...
  8. Trans fluid 2002 Caravan 3.3L

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I am a newbie Dodge caravan owner in that I purchased the van last weekend because the price was right and I really liked the layout and the way it drove. My short wheelbase 2002 Caravan SE has 142k miles on it and the last owner didn't know anything about the transmission history. I want to...
