A friend of mine has a 87 caravan that he picked up cheap. He said everything was fine and it rode good. All of the sudden he said that it wouldn't shift into second except at high rpm's and won't shift into 3rd gear at all. I don't know anything about these transmissions at all, hope someone can give me some suggestions. It's a v6 with automatic if that helps. Thanks

That sounds high to me. I paid 1100 for a rebuilt tranny for an 98 grand voyager at russmoore.

He had said something to me today that when he puts it in reverse that it doesn't want to engage in gear, but it will eventually. I agree with him getting a ramcharger or a dodge that is easy to work on. ;D
