The problem may be the catalytic converter checked. It could be that it is clogged up.

I have a 1996 Grand Caravan and the problem that I am having is that it won't shift out of second gear. It tacks about 4000 RPM at 50 MPH. The transmission has been rebuilt but wont shift out of second gear. Would changing the shift selinoids make any difference?

I have a 1999 Dodge Caravan. It has four engine mounts -- front, rear, left and right. I need to replace the rear and front engine mounts. Mechanic tells me the parts are dealer only, and pricey. Trying to find them online on the cheap cheap, but everyone seems to have only the left and right. FYI, the left and right mounts are sometimes referred to as "right-front" and "left-front." But these are not the true front and rear mounts. I need the rear and front. Any suggestions?

"I need to replace the rear and front engine mounts."
What makes you think you need to replace those engine mounts? I have a 1998 with the 3.8 liter engine with over 134,000 miles on the clock, with the factory engine mounts still in place. I just recently inspected all four mounts, two of them off the van, and they are all in excellent shape with no apparent wear.

They are actually cracked.... which reminds me... I forgot to put in my last post ... I need the bracket that bolts between the front mount and the block. This one is real hard to find. No one seems to stock it except the wallet-biting dealership.

Hmmm, I'm not sure what has caused your mounts to fail so early, however, I do have a suggestion that will be substantially lighter on our wallet. Have you called a bone yard? If you have either a 3.3 or a 3.8 liter engine, I'm betting that you can probably get all four, brackets and all for $100.
Give it a try and let me know how it works out.
#2273 of 2391 gas pedal sticking
Mar 11, 2007 (5:29 pm)
I have a 05 dodge caravan 6cyl automatic 50000 mi.
The gas pedal sticks when I first start to accelerate. Sometimes at a stop I have to stomp on it so hard that the van lurches ahead. It only sticks at the top of the pedal, its fine once I'm pass the sticking point. Anybody know the cause of this and how to resolve Thankyou
#2274 of 2391 2000 Grand Caravan AWD makes whistling noise at 3000rpm - any ideas?
Apr 17, 2007 (10:39 am)
I have a 2000 model Grand Caravan Sport AWD. It has 110,000 miles on it and is running really well. I have replaced the drive belt, AC system, battery, tires, rear brakes and exhaust system and am hoping it is now set to run for a few years without major incidents!
Here is my problem - every time I put my foot down to the extent that revs go up to about 3000, I hear a fairly loud whistling noise. It sounds like it is coming from behind/below - ie not the engine. It is not wind noise as I can make it happen at 30mph just as easily as at 70. Does anybody have any ideas what this is? My main question is whether if it is a major problem that needs to be fixed or something I can ignore.
