Dodge Grand Caravan QuestionsRefine by vehicle
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.
Twice now, when I start the car the right headlight will not light up in the "running mode" and when I turn on the headlight switch the left headlight will not light up. I had good used headlight bulbs and replaced both bulbs , then it happened the second time within a week. I drove about a mile then works fine.
My 2013 Dodge Caravan had been doing the same thing, completely shut down while driving the other day, had battery and alternator tested and were apparently
Good but was tested when battery light was off because it will come on and off intermittently. Can alternator read good if light is off, yet it still be the issue?
The drive'ers Door says it Is ajar & the radio dont work & the sliders dont work inless ur doing it & the batery Is allway 's dead
I went out to the van and put the key fob in and the man didn't start. It started making clicking noises and the lights on the dashboard started flickering. The key fob was stuck and I turn the van on or turn it to the off position. My husband got the key fob out and opened the hood and looked at the spark plugs. Some were clicking and vibrating. He ended up disconnecting the battery to make it stop. Later we went out to try it again and used the regular key instead of the key fob. This time the GPS screen displayed "security screen" and wanted a security code punched in. If we try to turn the van on it goes back to the clicking.
Also randomly the other day we came out to leave and the van was in drive when we got out there and not in park .... don't know if that is related in any way or not.
Front ac works fine and back blows but air is warm
My van did a stale like but I gave it gas. And it went. Ever since than its been messing up. We changed plugs and plug wires thinking that was it. The rpm's would race when I was driving down the road but now they don't since that happened too. BUT when I turn the air conditioner on the rpm's race and blows out hot air. My pipes did have a small hole which my uncle fixed but he said I still have another hole in the pipe but I can't remember what my uncle called it. But its more toward the front. I'm afraid to take it to mechanic for outrageous charges. My uncle is out of town until 3 weeks but if someone knows what might be wrong that way when I take it to mechanic I know a little. Please help. Single mother with disabled mother and son that I take care and work. I need this van for all of us. Thanks in advance for anyone that can help.
