Every so often, my 2008 Chrysler Town and Country feels like it holds back: the speed stays the same, but the RPMs go up. It makes a funny sound.

It will stop for a couple of days, but then, it happens again.

It has no diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) for the transmission or engine. It has a big oil leak at the top of the engine.

  1. What could be causing this?
  2. How do I diagnose this?

  • Did "he" see the van while it was having this issue?

  • No because it only does it once in a while Nov 4 '16 at 20:08

I would definitely address the oil leak first and foremost, but it sounds like your transmission is slipping.

  • I only have until the 12th dor warrityTranny guy said it was fine ugh I am so upset I love this Nov 4 '16 at 20:10

    Intermittent problems are frustrating because they never happen while the mechanic is looking at the car. Try to find a pattern for when it happens. When did it start exactly?

  • I am just driving and it happens what speed I am going itbstays on thatbrpm go up then it goes away Nov 4 '16 at 21:05
  • Does it happen soon after you start the car? After you've been driving for a while? Uphills? Downhills? Cold morning? Warm afternoon?
