Dodge Minivan Transmission
About a year and a half ago, I put a rebuilt trans in my 97 Dodge Caravan. The other evening, I all at once and without any prior symptoms lost all forward and reverse gears. It's not an axle or the diff, 'cause the Park gear holds. The shop that I brought it to the first time wants to do another rebuilt unit, claiming that I need one. Am I about to get hosed?

well they got you in a tight spot now huh, you probably towed it in. It's a heck of a lot easier to throw a rebuilt in there than to take it apart and fix it...

My sis' car blew a head gasket, and they wanted to drop a new engine in it.... it's just easier for them, but not always cheaper for you... might help you out.. what are they gonna charge you?

The original tranni was $1800.00. Covered by extended warranty. The Extended warranty is over and so is the warranty on the rebuild. The guy says that he'll do me a favor at 1320.00 I talked to another Trans shop that said that his warranty is two years. I'd have still been covered if I was smart enough to go with him. Ahhh, the intelligence of 20/20 hind-sight!

How many miles have you put on the rebuilt tran?
