  1. 5th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    Hey all, I had my 2011 T&C in the shop for water pump and serpentine belt replacement 3 weeks ago. I noticed it felt a little shaky at start up after the repair. Now all of a sudden the transmission is slipping. No check engine light yet. Could this have anything to do with the recent repair...

    My van is a 2010 Town and Country. Here is the story of this problem: Three weeks ago, my alternator got ridiculously hot. There was a bundle of wires (a part of the engine harness I think) that was resting against the back of the alternator. The alternator got so hot that it melted the...

    Hi I have a 1998 Chrysler Town and Country. My van started leaking transmission fluid from the axle cover and so I replaced the gears and replaced the other components directly by the gears. I got a new trans axle cover and everything looks great with no damage and no holes etc. I’ve been...

    Hi. New member here. I have a 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3 with 187,000 miles on it and I have noticed recently that the transmission is acting up. When you stop at a red light, you can feel the transmission downshift really late. It sometimes sticks in second gear until it is nearly at a dead...

    Noticed a small 1x2” size leak on the driveway. Took to friends place and put it up on a lift. We noticed at least one transmission cooler line had a leak. Assumed that was the issue and it was dripping/running down the transmission. Then we noticed the gasket around the pan was cracked and...

    Would appreciate your advice or stories of similar symptoms. We drove our 2011 DGC, 3.6, 6spd, (130k mi) to Tennessee on vacation. After about 6 hours of travel, we were driving up a long, steady hill, and I accelerated (didn't punch it to the floor, but gave it enough to downshift). It slipped...

    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...

    I just dropped the transmission pan and changed the filter on my 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan. There was not any metal pieces or slivers or chunks, but there was quite a bit of slimy metallic sludge around the magnet. Currently at 155,000 miles and this is the first work that has ever been done to...

    A month ago I posted that I was having transmission issues (lost all forward gears) after replacing the drivers side cv axle. After making sure fluid levels were correct, pulling the axle back out and inspecting it (finding no damage or issues), reinstalling it, making sure it was seated in all...

    Okay I know I have transmission problems already. I have just never seen this before on any tranny in 55 years. I was driving and the car went to 4000 rpm and limp mode. Now I know this happens but I mean it stayed right where it was. I couldn't speed up, I put it in neutral and it stilled...

    2013 Town & Country 130k miles recently purchased and check engine light came on after driving off the car lot! We had torque converter replaced due to P0740 error. Now when shifting from 4th to 5th & 5th to 6th it jumps up a few 100 RPM before shifting. Transmission shop said they couldn't...

    Hi everyone, We are in the unfortunate position of needing some serious transmission work on our 2015 GC. I was driving the other day and noticed a kind of whining noise from under the hood. It quickly progressed into power loss and eventually the vehicle would just rev and not drive or reverse...

    Hi guys. So I've got this weird vibration issue with my van. I've searched the forum and found a few similar issues, not sure if this is the same or not, mine seems to differ a bit. I've been a die-hard manual-transmission guy for a multiple decades. Beyond driving a few rentals, I'm unused...

    Hi everyone, I have been reading the forum and have found a few articles with similar symptoms, but not all of the same symptoms. I have a 2011 T&C with the 6-speed (62TE?) transmission. The first sign of trouble was about 4 months ago, when it was really cold, maybe -20F. Backed out of...

    Newby here - I really need some help! My wife and I bought a 2011 T&C with about 118,000 miles on it about 2 months ago. It ran very well until we were starting a long trip for a vacation just before Christmas (of course). Cruising along at about 75-80 with no problems, all of a sudden the...
  20. 1st Generation Chrysler Minivan: 1984-1990
    I previously posted about this vehicle and CV issues. That is apparently resolved. The new issue is transmission function apparently related to a carburetor upgrade I did. I have replace the original Mikuni with the appropriate Weber carb. I had some issues with connecting the tranny kick-down...
