2002 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 137000 miles
02 Dodge Grand Caravan started "lurchng" with momentary rpm spikes at high speed. The engine stalled when I stopped. I let it cool down and all was ok for about 10 miles. Same thing. A mechanic rode with me with code reader and could find nothing (it didn't malfunction) during that 20 test! Afterwards, it started again. The cruise control seemed to set it off on uphill inclines as I experimented with different speeds, on/off cruise, etc. The tranny acted up as I started up, then calmed down when I pumped the accelerator a few times. Tried starting out without cruise and no problem at high speed until I set cruise on. Suddenly all was good, no problem for 100 miles. Then notices a lurch starting out from stop sign? The major problem started after passing trhough a heavy rain storm. Tranny or cruise problem? I had noticed some subtile tranny slips at startup a few weeks before this all happened.
have the same problem?
