Why does my 2002 dodge caravan not shift down?

Asked by Jan 16, 2015 at 06:11 PM about the 2002 Dodge Caravan Sport

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Sometimes my transmission does not shift down.  It runs at like 5000 rpms at 30 mph.  
The next time I drive it everything is fine.  Only does this between starts.  Hoping it could
be something simple.  Any ideas anyone.  LS

Change the transmission fluid and filter. it sounds like the filter is plugged.

I changed the transmission fluid and filter which I thought was going to be the fix. First time I drove it worked fine. The second time it did the same thing with the extremely high rpms. Not sure what to try next as I checked the codes and found nothing.
