New Middletown, OH
i just worked on a 2000 grand caravan with the 3.8l awd.the belt has come off three times this summer that i know of.this past sunday i was told it was shredded so i put a new one on and 20 mins later the customer told me it fell off again.he says everytime he drives it in the rain its coming off.it has a new tensioner,1 new idler and a new water pump also.
good question.multifuntion switch if installed on your vehicle would need cleaned with electrical contact spray,otherwise it would be the wiper motor pulse board module and it would be cheaper to replace the wiper moter completely as the wiper motor pulse board module is allready in it.
like greg said but i would also check for exaust restrictions as that will kill your engines power.
possible broken wire but most likely a brake light switch.
liquid gasket sealer would be fine for anything as long as its not used on head gaskets or headers.
grab the heater hoses at the firewall and if one feels cooler then the other just flush it out with a garden hose,reconnect the hoses then check for heat.i would buy a $4 prestone hydrometer to check for boil over and frezze over protection also.
check for exaust restrictions.
most likely a clogged resonator pipe just before the cat converter.a sawzall a $10 replacement pipe and two clamps and your wories are most likely over.
it has a blend door accuator but i would try grabbing both heater hoses at the firewall.i f one is noticably cooler then the other then flush it out with a garden hose.then check your coolant with a hydrometer and you should be fine.
change the heater blower motor resistor.that part averages about $15 at local auto parts stores
