2001 Dodge Caravan Problems

Power Windows May Stop Working

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.

Noise in Front Suspension Due to Worn Sway Bar Bushings/End Links

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.

Odor from HVAC vents

Some vehicles may develop a musty odor coming from the HVAC system, Dodge has issued a cleaner/disinfectant and a coating for the evaporator designed to inhibit bacterial growth.

My fiancee owns this workhorse of a van, and it's amazing how it holds it's own after all these years of wear and tear.

I got my 2001 Dodge Caravan Sport with 25K on it from a rental agency. It now (2010) has 240,000 miles! I rebuilt the transmission at 158,000 miles but the engine is original and makes no extra noise. I've had almost no other problems with this car ... other than wearing out electric window motors.
