My 1998 Dodge caravan (3.0 v6 with 3 speed trans) was running fine until one morning I start the van and put it in reverse...nothing, put in drive, 2 and 1 and nothing. It can be pushed in every gear...

With the van in park or neutral with e-brake on, and engine running, pull the transmission fluid dipstick, notice there's no fluid on the dipstick. Put a quart of transmission fluid in the dipstick tube, with e-brake still on, put the van in gear. R or D, and see does the van try to move against the brake. If it tries to move, engine speed drops, put it back in neutral or park and check the fluid level again. If it's still low, put in a little more till it's to the full mark.. Done. Check under the van and find the area where fluid is dripping out and fix it. If it's the pan gasket, replace it. Replace the filter while the pan is down.

I have 2005 mitsubishi galant v6 transmission stopped working while driving every gear is like im in neutral. Transmission never slipped or anything

First thing to do is check the transmission fluid level and check for leaks. If the transmission is very low on fluid, for example a cooler line broke, it would cause this situation due to no pressure. If you do not see any outside leaks, but transmission fluid is very low, check your radiator overflow tank, if it is overfull and milky, this would mean the Trans cooler that goes through the radiator is leaking fluid into the coolant system.

It may actually BE in neutral. AUtomatc transmissions that are low on fluid often have trouble staying in gear and will slip back into neutral at times due to lack of fluid needed to engage the hydraulics required to go into the desired gear. Checking and topping up fluid may solve your problem.

HOWEVER, if it is low, they where did the fluid go (it doesnt evaporate!)???

If it isnt low and its going into neutral improperly when the stick is in drive., likely have some serious engine control or transmission system problems needing immediate service. code pulls may help, but aside from a few remote issues, if its not low fluid, you really need to seek expert advice on transmission issues

2006 freestar will not go into any gear. all gears give the apperance of neutral except park.

This is a recall just like the 2005 Freestars. Your Freestar more and likely has a defective torque converter and worn out splines in your transmission. This is a life threatening recall and Ford inc has been looking at it as a casual recall. Get this to your Ford dealer today and have them fix it at no charge to you. Problem solved.

I was driving down the road at about 55 mph, and then it seems that the transmission slipped into neutral, or what I assumed was neutral. I coasted to a stop, put the van in park and shut it off. When i...

If the Battery warning lamp is coming on, the engine stalls and the starter just clicks, and you have to have it jump started to get going again [I assume anyway] then it sounds like the charging system isn't always working and the battery is getting drained to the point that the engine computer and fuel pump quit working. Low voltage can also affect how the transmission functions and when the transmission goes into a default position you'll only have Park, Reverse, Nuetral, and 2nd gear. [it may seem like first gear however] I'd start by having the charging system tested to make sure it's capable of putting out the full amperage and voltage that it's rated at and have all the battery connections and cables looked over to be sure they are capable of delivering all the current needed to run everything. I think you'll probably find the fix for most of the problems in that area. Hope this helps and good luck!

Can you tell me if a 97 dodge caravan transmission 3.3 will interchange with a 3.8. This is the trouble i have had and have decided to put in Transmission. Driving down the road and van sounded like it...

1. Yes the 3.3 and the 3.8 are the same bolt pattern. But the gear ratio in the differential might be different.

2. Did you replace the filter and put it back together? Does it do the same thing after you changed the filter? If it was an electrical issue with speed sensors or the solenoid pack, reverse would still work.

Gear shift is locked. we can only shift the car

The automatic transmissions on these vehicles are known to die early in the life of the car and Volvo is well aware that the vehicle has a dud auto transmission. The symptoms you have mentioned are an indication that the transmission has had it. It's basically just running in limp mode now.

You don't say what mileage this vehicle has clocked up but even low mileage vehicles have had to have the entire transmission replaced due to failures like yours. You also, no doubt, have a transmission alert showing on the dash.

The bad news is that a replacement automatic transmission will now be necessary and this will be costly. Even then, with these cars, you could experience another transmission failure after just another 30000 miles or so of driving.
