1996 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 218000 miles
I drove to Charlotte NC and back to Anderson SC day before yesterday, the following morning drove to Hartwell Ga 15 miles from Anderson on the way back while driving pressing the gas pedal at the speed limit 40 I lost pressure it felt as if the car was in neutral pushing the gas pedal I pulled to the side no yellow light, shifted to each gear no change felt as in neutral then I checked trans fluid it was plenty then I cut van off. Finished eating my burger from wendy's so I started it up and put it in drive the van pulled off got to about 5-10 on dash about to shift into 2nd the van revved up like it was in high gear and immediately like slowed it down being in that neutral state. Soon as I turn the car off and back on put in drive it repeat the above step, so I made my way to the nearest shop stopping & going. The mechanic noticed the van had no reverse even if you shut it off and re start it. He was puzzled and mentioned possible replacing it with a used transmission. Do you have a clue? Can it be input/output speed sensor, or a solenold pack I just looked these terms up on line and don't have a clue. I had it towed to my house while sitting in the drive way I put it in Reverse and hit the gas and it made a loud farting sound but didn't move
have the same problem?
