Transmission Replacement Advice?
2000 Grand Caravan has been acting up lately. Shifting hard and won't shift past second gear, when pushed hard it engine brakes and the ATF smells like it's burning.
Ran the codes, three in total:
P1784 (Low Reserve Pressure Switch)
P1787 (Overdrive Hydraulic Pressure Switch Circuit)
P1782 (2-4 Pressure Switch Circuit)
I have a buddy who's dad owns a junkyard and I am able to pull a working transmission of the same year, model and engine size van for $200.
Don't have enough $$ to get someone else to do it, so I'll be swapping the transmission out of my van and putting in another one. I will have the help of two others.
Has anyone swapped out a transmission on these vans? Any tips?
