I heard a clank when starting to drive my van and felt like I ran over something metal then steering wheel shakes when I drive and van pulls to drivers side. What could this bee
Sputters when I start it like it doesn't want to completely start. I rev it up to get it going usually works but has gotten worse. When I drive it it runs great except for when the gas pedal quits working and then will work again sometimes it dies while I'm driving. I need to know exactly which part to get. I put new battery in and had oil changed. It has new plugs and wires and water pump reservoir thermostat and housing. It jerks a little too when the gas pedal kicks in again very strange.
THIS PROBLEM SEEMS TO HOLD THE VAN BACK FROM EXCELERATING. IT IS NOT THE TIRES, AND ONLY SEEMS TO DO IT ON WARM DAYS 90 DEGREES
08 Grand Caravan SXT came o.e.m. w/16" wheels but... 2 of the wheels have " chunks " knocked out of them due to curb job. I have 17" wheels I'd like to replace them with and want to know if they'll fit with proper tires of course. Probably mess with my speedo a bit but what about transmission, computer, etc ?
Unrecognizable symbol stays on' bought used no book.
Everything controlled by the multi switch blinks on and off. Along with all the dash gauges. I have already replace the multi switch. What's the next step ECM or PCM. I called dodge and their isn't a BCM on a 2008. Which all the sysmtoms point to a BCM.

Thanks
Christine
What seems to make the problem better or worse? Hot days make the symptoms more frequent
How long have you had this problem? Intermittent for a couple years
Took my dodge grand caravan 2011 into dealer for T33 recall fix. Steering wheel wiring. Left unable to drive. The traction control light blinks and upon pressing brakes they grind and make weird noises. Went right back they tell me it's a clockspring issue and took out a fuse so I can drive home. They say the wiring issues with the recall masked the clockspring issue that's why it wasn't apparent until now. Is this true or did they break something and want to charge me $500 to fix it?
Is this a heater core issue?
We have had issues with the VES not ejecting DVDs now it will not let me load one. The DISC like just blinks.
