change transmissions fluid

Asked by Feb 06, 2010 at 01:38 PM about the 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

    DEALER IS TELLING ME I NEED TO CHANGE TRANSMISSIONS FLUID, POWER STEERING FLUID AND BRKAE FLUID ALL RIGHT NOW WITH 33,000 MILES. I THOUGHT THESE VANS COULD GO FOR 100,000 MILE BEFORE CHANGING MAJOR FLUIDS.

Can you even change the transmission fluid? I thought it was sealed? We have gone through 3 front brake re-do's (grinding again at 66k!!), a new radiator, and a new radio due to the other one shocking us when we touched it. Now our van is making a really loud sound humming sound that is getting louder each time we drive it, sounds like the transmission? I can't even hear the radio over it! We've had so many recall notices on this van! 2 in the last week, and at LEAST 5 prior that I remember. Never again, this is ridiculous!

I have a 2008 dodge grand caravan sxt as well and has been nothing but a nightmare from day one… the humming is either ur hub assembly or possibly drive axle which I have had to replace both… and way more. Then that… .
