Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

problem #1

Jan 142012

Caravan Grand Caravan 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150,000 miles


I bought the van used and it ran great, for awhile. then it began to miss out so i tuned it up ,that really didn't help . So i had diagnostic work done , told it could be crankshaft sensor or camshaft sensor, replaced both $350.00 , didn't fix it . So i did reseach online and found it could be cracked flywheel ,it was , $650 later it runs great again . Just can't get it through my head how a steel plate inside a transmission could crack it's not like i'm drag racing the van, mechanics involved said it is a money maker for them, happens quite a bit . How could dodge not recall this , obviously bad flywheels , hope this helps someone so they don't have to go through all the bullcrap i did. thanks for letting me vent.
