2000 Dodge Caravan Problems

Power Window Motor and Switches May Fail

One or more power windows may stop working due to a failed window motor or regulator. In some cases these items are replaced as a set. If not, diagnoses will be required to determine which is at fault.

Worn Sway Bar Bushings/End Links May Cause Noise in Front Suspension

Worn sway bar bushings or sway bar end links may cause a rattling or clunking noise from the front suspension during low-speed driving. Though not always the root cause, front struts are often replaced for this condition.

Front Crankshaft Seal May Pop Out Due to End Play

Due to the crankshaft end play being out of specification, the front crankshaft seal can be popped or pushed out. Revised crank main thrust bearings will solve the problem.
