Question about 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan
replacing the transmission fluid is easy, but you really need to find out why and from where the old fluid leaked. Under the hood in the engine compartment you will find a dipstick (gauge to check the fluid level) which is essentially the same as the oil dipstick in its performance, but different in location. It should be clearly marked as such.
Pull dipstick out and insert funnel into the opening (filler tube) and add 4 quarts of ATF Plus 3 Type 7176. Start the engine and allow it to idle for approx. 2 minutes
Apply the parking brake and push down on the brake pedal while idling and run the gear selector through the gears, stopping at Park.
Check the dipstick and add fluid so that the level is 1/8 inch below the "ADD" indication on the dipstick if necessary. Allow the van to run for around another 10-15 minutes to achieve normal operating temperatures.
Check the fluid level again to make sure it reached the "Hot" indicator level on the dipstick, and add more fluid if needed and then replace the dipstick in the filler tube.
I would definitely find out why you have leaked all of your transmission fluid before refilling it.
I hope this helps and good luck!
