Dodge Caravan

Why when you had the transmission replaced on a 1992 Dodge Caravan would the mechanic say he could not figure out how to hook up the speedometer?

The speed sensor sends a signal to the speedometer to show the correct speed and it sends a signal to the transmission telling when to shift. If the speed sensor is bad the speedometer will not work and the transmission will not shift correctly.

There is no speedometer cable on a 1995 caravan. it is done by a speed sensor on the transmission and digtal data is sent to the computer and the computer then sends the signal to the speedometer. This is the case even when the speedometer looks analog. Likely a bad speedometer is the cause if it does not move as the speed sensor is used for other functions and would trip the "check engine" light if it was bad. the speedometer is part of the instrument cluster and likely you would need to change the whole thing.

Most likely the VSS. Vehicle Speed Sensor. It is mounted on the side of the transmission.

there is a speed sensor on your transmission, probably about 15 bucks, and easy to replace, try there, but first check your fuses.

The speedometer signal comes form the transmission computer via the output speed sensor.

If he replaced the trans with a differant trans, there is a speed sensor on the extention housing. If that is the plug that does not fit then you will have to buy a new speed sensor ,it will fit. If this is a four speed trans (604) overdrive trans then the other possability will be an input speed sensor. Make sure that the trans is from a 1991 thru 1995. And from the same size eng

If the gears are clunking in the transmission, this is a transmission problem in a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan. The fact that the speedometer went up and back down suggests that the transmission slipped. It is more likely that a gear belt in the transmission failed, than something being wrong with the transfer case module or TCM.

The original tank was a 20 gallon gas tank. These tanks can be easily found and replaced by a good mechanic.

No. The speed signal is electronic.

Transmission fluid is inside the transmission.

Atf3 or Atf4 is the transmission fluid for a dodge caravan.

You remove the transmission oil pan to drain the fluid on a Dodge Caravan.

Only if you want to destroy your transmission. Dexron is a GM product and shouldn't be used in a Dodge. Use ATF+4 which has replaced the older ATF+3 transmission fluid.

It sounds like the instrument cluster has gone bad on you. The car is still driveable but you won't have instruments. If only the speedo is not working, you may have a bad sending unit on the transmission. Check all the fuses and relays first. If you have no luck, take it to a mechanic who has the right tools to find the problem.

If it's the same type of transmission that came from/is going on the same engine, yes.
