Compresser kicks on air just doesn't get cold 200 over 40 are the reading from the gauges
I have noticed the problem (overheating on hot days - coolant from the overflow) has gotten a little more frequent as daytime temps have begun to rise this summer.
I was told by the Dodge dealer the check engine light stays on because the boot line is defective.
I was not given a clear answer or description of what a boot line is, and how I can fix it.
Other than the engine light - my Caravan operates wonderfully. The Dodge Dealer did attempt to fix the check engine light, but it still stays on.
Had it checked with code reader for transmission. Said its not getting ground at the shift moduel 2-4 solenoid wire going to the shift moduel solenoid pack from pcm connection #4. So what I think i am needing is either the color code of that ground wire or the pin number that the ground wire represents. I hate wiring any help you can give me would be helpful. thanks
do they both have to have matching engine sizes or can the 3.3 interchange with the 3.0 for the tranny to fit?
I do light carpentry and woodworking projects occasionally and carry portable tools and materials. (1000 to 2000 lbs max). Are extra leaf springs necessary or would a good set of air shocks be adequate?
I need to take the old air pump out and put in a new one, how do I do that?
I've got a 2000 Dodge Caravan 3.0 liter that cranks but won't start. Mine has a distributor. I understand later models have coil packs instead. No spark, replaced ASD relay (cracked) didn't help. New distributor cost $325. What can i check to make sure i only change whats broke. Coil, cam and crank sensors. Does this distributor already contain the cam and crank sensors. Some do from what I've seen on the net. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have tried diconnecting the battery, and playing with the light switch N if it does go off which is no to often when I go outside I can hear my radio on I don't know what to do
this happens only when it is left overnight. otherwise in the middle of the day it runs perfect without single issue.
My Van cut off when I was going down the road to get my son from his dads house(4/6/15). Haven't been having any problems with my van cutting off or starting before now. A couple so called mechanics stopped on the side of the road to help. 1 said my distributor was burnt out so my Dad and I replaced it with a brand new part. Then we realized my timing belt was broken in half so we replaced that with a brand new belt as well. The van still will not start and we have also replaced the ignition coil. We are leaning towards my crank sensor being bad now...Any suggestions??? (4/12/15)
Mommy of 4 really needs her vehicle back :(
Wiring harness was melted but I repaired that. the wire doing to injector 2 dous not flash and is constant power. All others flash
Both vehicles are 1998 Dodge Caravans.
WOULD THIS BE A WHEEL SENSOR
Not all the time
I was driving at 15 mph in a mall parking lot and felt a bump, like I had run over a speed bump or something in the road. Nothing was in the road way. A minute later the check engine light came on...after which the van won't shift up. Drives great up to 45 mph. But rpm's rev up to 5000 at 60 mph. Feels like the transmission can't shift up.
the van had stopped running for no reason put new fuel pump and new plugs van ran for a week and stopped again once it was started again it would die when put in gear
Have checked fuses. Would work until it got warm then would flat line. Would start working again if you banged on dash, then it quit working altogether. Panel light is only thing that works.
When your drive it, it feels like somethings holding it back. Misfiring/ pulsing at 1500 rpm. Thinking a timing issue or what?
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.
