This is a 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan EL 3.3 V6 with auto Transmission. It has about 150k miles and has lived in FL central/east coast until last few months, now in Colorado Springs CO. It just started recently when it gets warm after driving maybe a half hour around town or maybe sooner on highway to miss and jerk and lose power. I had the codes read from Auto Zone and one of them was a P1391 so I went and replace the Camshaft position sensor, but it didn't help. I also found a couple vacuum lines dry rotted and leaking so replaced those, but that didn't help either. The van run great until it gets warmed up real good then we start seeing this problem. I got a bluetooth scanner and have used several apps to read various live data and it seems that TPS and MAP and O2 sensor are working (at least from what I can tell). I also saw mention of timing issue so wanted to know if that is a likely issue and if so why would it only affect the system when it gets hot? Thanks in advance!
The fuel and speed indicators and door locks are not functioning when the speed is high transmission do not change
Complete 4-wheel brake job, outer tie rod ends, lower control arm assembly, 4 new tires with 2 times tire balancing and 2 times 4-wheel alignment didn't fix this problem. Very subtle, rhythmic friction/grabbing when braking that is progressively more noticeable at slower speeds as vehicle slows to stop. This seems to be originating at frond end. I can detect very faint, elusive slight rhythmic noise at higher speeds, but location for this symptom is difficult to pinpoint.
My van has started leaking when it sits. When we accelerate and start to drive, it comes pouring in to the floor from under the passenger side dash board. We are experiencing mold in the front floor boards.
I've had the van about 7 months. When I bought it there was a light on and the code read misfire on #4 cylinder. Car lot replaced gas cap and no problems until a week ago. Light is back on and van stalls out randomly at any speed. Sometimes it jerks real bad and sometimes not at all. I lose steering and braking ability and almost hit a car today! I also have random problems with my ignition switch...key won't turn the ignition. I have to keep trying til it unlocks. What could be stalling it out like this? Fuel pump seems to be working OK.
water pump not leaking, but pulley hub seems loose and can be spun by hand
The car has noticeable lack of power. Very slow acceleration, loud airplane engine type noise which increases with speed and top speed only around 60 mph.Oil level normal, transmission fluid normal, radiator fluid level is full. Have just completed 15 hour highway drive avg speed 65 mph with large kayak on roof. No problems. Today symptoms as described. What's wrong?
the vehicle was working well today but the theft light started flashing when I stopped the vehicle after five minutes
Cylinders 1, 3, and 5 spark plug removal and replacement. The exhaust pipe and manifold connection blocks access to #1 cylinder Spark Plug.
The passenger door lock is not working at all, like other doors. I have to lock or unlock manually.
Passenger Door look has not been functioning at all by itself for two weeks, like other doors. I have to do it manually by myself.
Any suggestions what might be wrong with that door look?
These lights have come on in the past in the winter and would go away after a restart and a mile or so. This time the they wont go out changed dead battery and still have lights
My van has had issues(manageable) since purchasing it. Car fax showed nothing wrong but after major issues and a Complete title search by a more truthful person I found this vehicle had a salvage title with less than 4,000 miles on it.
This past week after having the ignition switch cylinder(recall) replaced ,the van developed an issue with the jerking when accelerating . I put it in the shop spent over 2400.00 and still have issues! I was looking at replacing the vehicle , I will now be looking at a different make and model. This is my 3 rd Dodge Caravan and I am very disappointed in the lack of quality as of recent years!
All the fuses look good, no power at all.
