Having problems with your 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan ?

Gear selector is sticky/hard to move

\015 I am looking at a used van and this is one of the only issues of concern. When moving into drive or any gear the shifter moves very slowly. Better after the vehicle was warmed up and driven. Had sat for a few weeks.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018
