1998 Dodge Caravan QuestionsRefine by vehicle
My friend had a garage put an alternator on and they replaced the belt too, altough they did not replace the idler or tensionor. A week to the day the belt flew off and some how broke the earlets for the a.c.. Can I just downsize the belt and have it safe? I've been trying to fix it for 5 days and even jbweld didn't stick. So I can't mount the bypass pully. Need more thoughts!!!!! Please help!!
Won't go over 5 mph

After pressing it a few times, it starts working. Has any shops in your network seen this type of problem before? If so, please provide estimate on repairing this. Thanks!
Both vehicles are 1998 Dodge Caravans.
Not all the time
Over the last few days I have noticed that my temperature gauge has been fluctuating. It never goes hot, it only goes down from the center point that it usually rests at. Today it won't go higher than just above the coldest spot on the gauge. What could cause this? A fuse, a sensor? Please, any help is much appreciated.
During my drive up from Branson to Springfield a loud bang came from engine in shifting and then smoke blew out of my exhaust and engine. I believe I cracked my engine block? If so how much is it to repair?
Id like to know where fuse box is also
This problem started happening about 3-4 weeks ago. I added some stop leaking transmission fluid.
It seems that whenever I put my van in reverse, it needs alot of gas to get it going just a little bit, it wont even go fast in reverse maybe 3-5 mph. And then it starts making this rattling noise. I don't understand I've looked everywhere online and there isn't a specific fix for this problem. And I don't want to take it to a mechanic cause I know they will anally probe me. Please guys I would really appreciate it, I love my baby. I don't want to say goodbye to it yet. I know someone on here can help me. Thanks a bunch for taking the time out to helping me out if you can.
Thanks, and have a wonderful day. :)
I even changed the transmission oild twice and I still see no difference
Van seems to run fine on city streets but interstate travel and going 60 to 70 mph seems to make van choke and lunge a bit. Usual mechanics did a test drive but can't fix it. Fuel pump was changed last year. any ideas??? Has been a great van until the choking problem.
Is values suppose be open on the back toward exhaust
Does anyone know where I can find a schematic that would tell me what the voltages should be at the heater control wiring harness pins, and cluster gauge voltages at the harness? Or perhaps give me a place to look for problems, since my gauges stop working when I plug the wiring harness into the back of the heater control module.
I changed a faulty heater control module (the controls under the radio), and when I plug that in, my gauges quit working. They work fine if I leave the wiring unplugged on the heater controls.I left the controls on heat and defrost and I do have the fan control plugged in for defrosting and heat for cold mornings. But doing so, I do not have control over temperature or control for rear window functions now (defrost, wipers, etc). Could problem be in wiring itself or with the cluster, or perhaps the used heater control module I put in. The self diagnostic on the heater control module ends up with no fault codes, but with the heater control wiring plugged in, I cant even get the self dianostic on the cluster to activate until I unplug it from the back of the heater control.
The boot on the inner half shat (axle) ripped off, left with this metal piece in the transmission. Tried pulling off with vise grips and prybar, nothin doin. There are 5 bolts around the part that enters the tranny, so do I have to take the bolts off or is it simply the Circlip at the end of the axle? Sooooo frustrated...
