    I have an 06 Town and Country that I recently changed the front passenger and driver side CV axles. Since it has around 160,000 miles and has never had a transmission fluid change I let as much run out when i did the change which was about 2 quarts. At the same time I decided to change the trans...

    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...

    Hello Everyone, I am new here, but I frequent the ram forumz page since I own a 2010 ram 1500 hemi. My wife has a 2010 dodge grand caravan and i replaced the transmission pan, filter and pan gasket because I didn't know the last time the fluid was changed. There had been a leak where it seemed...

    I changed the trans fluid and filter on my '96 3.8 liter 100K miles ago. It now has 215K miles on it The manual says to use "Mopar ATF Plus Automatic Transmission Fluid Type 7176", which is what I must have put in, and from an internet search I understand it to be an ATF+3 type. The fluid...

    Hi, I changed transmission fluids and filter during the weekend. I used ATF+4 (Valvoline) as mentioned over and over on this forum. Unfortunately I didn't have access during the weekend for Mopar fluid so had to use other brand. My minivan is Chrysler 2004 Town & Country Limited, 3.8 L, 2 wd...

    Hey, I'm looking to change the transmission filter on my 02 caravan, and as i'm doing my research I'm getting conflicting information on the wither or not to flush the fluid. Most Say just to drop the pan, and replace the 4 qt. or so that comes out. Others say to use an air hose or something...

    I have a 98 Plymouth Voyager with the 2.4l and 212,000 miles. Am on the second tranny for this van and recently the transmission fluid showing on the dipstick keeps getting lower and lower. There is very little leakage for the amount I am having to replace. I have heard of vacuum lines...

    I have noticed during the past several weeks that my 01 T and C (3.3L), while accelerating, there seems to be about a 3 second, 2 or 3 horsepower loss, and then it goes away for about 5 seconds, then returns in same interval. I only notice it while accelerating. Everything seems to be running...

    So I figured you all could appreciate this, since you all love these things.A little background first: I just bought a 97 Town and Country SX 3.3L with 120,000 miles on it for 100$. The brakes were seized up, and it had sat for about 6 months. Started and ran after jumping the battery. No...

    I just got a rebuilt transmission installed 3 months ago, and now I'm seeing smoke come from the hood. It's white and when we check it out it appears to be from where the transmission fluid has overflowed and dripped on the hot engine - thus creating smoke. Any idea what is causing the trans...
