How do you check / maintain the transmission fluid level in 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan?

Asked by Jul 11, 2012 at 05:57 PM about the 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan SE FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

There does not appear to be a dipstick to check / maintain the transmission fluid level. Did find a port that says it is a dealer maintenance access. Since I do not go to the dealer for simple maintenance, what do places like Jiffy Lube due when I have an oil change done?

If you park your vehicle in the same place all the time , Back our about 1 car length and look for drips. You can easily sort out any drips by color and smell. Roll under and see where the drips are coming from. . Engine oil, coolant, trans fluid etc. all have their own color and smell. Familiarize yourself with what known good fluids look like ahead of time, this will simplify things for you ,should you develop a leak.

Always look for puddles or drops of fluid on your parking place, I am on my 3rd Dodge minivan , I keep them about 10 yrs. and trade them in ,they go to auction and whoever buys them can probably squeeze another 50 or 60 k miles out of them. My 2017 Dodge Caravan is much improved and the V6 Pentastar engine packs a wallop.This Minivan is really top notch, very refined,comfortable quiet and very smooth riding. It does strike me as odd that Chrysler did away with the transmission dipstick. Again I say Look for leaks spotting your parking space. If you cant roll under, get a mirror on a stick and a flashlight and scope it out.
