I recently got a 93 caravan. It already had a miss so i did a acomplete tune up, plugs,wires,cap,button,air filter,fuel filter. It helped the miss but not entirely,some of the plugs 2 of them looked as if they were bad,not flooded withe gas just not firing looking. I did the code thing and it read a 12 and a 37,the 37 is a ptu solenoid which handles the tranny junk so i either read it wrong or something. it seems like thats not it although i havent changed nothing. i dont think this would make it miss at idle or all the time am i wrong.this thing has been a pain. the wife has got the monetro and i got this since it runs like crap and its myy fault. but i dont wont her to egt stranded but if i can get it goin good then im back in the saddle of the 4wd til then i need help. it hasnt died yet but runs like crap i used to like cars til my last 2 the camry hasnt moved in 2 mnths. I told you so she says....get me outta this mess, should i drive it to the scrap yard and give it up 4 a lost cause or set it on fire and roll it down the mountain.if i can get it run its by bye birdie but til then chugachugachuga off to work i go,did i mention the heater works great and it has built in car seats for the kids honey.

    check fuel injectors use a long screw driver check each one for a crisp clicking while engine is running most likely find problem thereespeciall ifplugs look to b dry .if side by side injectors good run compression test may have blown head gasket between cylinders
