Transmission problem
1997 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 233000 miles

Thanks for the reply! How would I go about repairing the Transmission Solenoid Pack?
Also I did take it in and have it scanned for codes and what it says as the problem is a bad ground or loose connection for reason as far as speedometer.
My codes says Pcm not receiving messages from the TCM. PCM not receiving codes from VSS. So it would specify if it was my instrument cluster then if that were the problem? Auto shop is where I had gotten the idea as far as the instrument cluster to begin with. They told me that maybe there was a short and then it eventually just blew it out on the instrument cluster. Anyway as far as the codes to me basically is telling me that my main computer is not receiving messages from my transmission control module and the vehicle speed sensor. They also said that maybe the pcm is bad and sending faulty codes but my codes seem to match as far as what is going wrong. I will try the transmission solenioid pack as you suggested hopefully that will at least help with the shifting issue. Really expensive driving this way sucks the gas like crazy and with these gas prices cant afford that.
Again thanks for the quick response it is much appreciated!

Do you
