Having problems with your 2000 Dodge Caravan ?

I have a 2000 Dodge Caravan, 3.0L V6, Automatic w/ A/C. There is a distinct whirring sound coming from the mechanicals (engine/transmission) and changes when it shifts. At take off, intermittantly, then engine will rev, but it will not move, then suddenly jerks and goes reluctantly. It seemed to get worse the more we drove it so we stopped driving it, but we have to get it fixed. We have almost 156,000 on it. Any thoughts?

Answers :

The change in sound after a shift shows that it's something attached to the engine, which is driven directly by it. Change in RPM of the engine effects change in the sound you hear. Whirring noises which change with engine RPM are normally things like Power Steering pump, or Alternator.

Start the engine and let it idle, and listen with a piece of fuel line in your ear to see where the noise is the loudest. You'll be able to tell where it's coming from that way, and know exactly what it is.

I'd suggest checking your fluids. If the noise is getting louder, you could be doing damage to the PS system, if that's what the problem actually is.

Another option is the torque converter, although much less likely than the former.
