1998 Dodge Grand Caravan Problems

Power Window Regulator/Motor May Fail

One or more power windows may stop working due to a failed regulator or motor which will require replacement. Our technicians tell us the regulator and motor is replaced as a set on these vehicles.

Key May Not Start Car or Release From Ignition

Intermittently, the key may not start the car or release from the ignition. If it is excessively worn, replace the key. If the new key doesn't work, replacing the lock cylinder including tumblers should correct this concern.

Engine Knocking Noises From Carbon Buildup

Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. Over time this can lead to symptoms varying from light ticking to knocking noises. Performing a fuel injector cleaning procedure can often help the condition by removing some of the piston top deposits.

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan Reviews

266,000 miles and still running good. Starting to nickle and dime me but after 10 years it is still a good rig.
Bought this in 2003 w 47K miles. Pros: I really like the roominess...I can fit the family one day, or fit a ton of equipment another, or haul a load of firewood or stuff from Home Depot on another. It seems to be perfectly sized for most everything I do. The 3.8L motor is really strong and could probably humble many of the sporty cars out there in a race from stop. Fuel economy is excellent...
Great vehicle ,now have 175000 miles with little trouble,only slight oil leak from valve cover
