2004 dodge caravan, new transmission only 50,000 km ago..Now they say I need a solenoid pack, even though there is no leak, but it's making a funny noise shifting gears. Any suggestions. It sounds like it's slipping with every shift, but there are no leaks and fluid levels are fine. Any ideas? I hate to pay them $92/hr to tear it apart for four hours and then another ? hours to fix it. They won't warranty it saying the original repair only had one year warranty. Last dodge I own.


You can change that solenoid pack in about 30 minutes. But I would reset the adaptive memory of the TCM first before you replace the solenoid pack. Are you getting it to go into limp mode or is it setting codes in the TCM? Can you describe the n ... 2004 Dodge Caravan

I have a 1994 dodge caravan and it was/is leaking antifreeze. I put some sealant in and thought it would work. It makes a hissing sound and overheats at random times.
