Question about 2005 Dodge Caravan
What you have here sounds like problems that are coincidental, but unrelated. It's hard to say without knowing the engine size (3.3V6??), but the oil light on right hand turns might be an oil pump problem, but I would be more apt to say that your oil level was low, so do check it & add regularly. The rain sputtering could be a bad distributer cap, or even in rare cases, an egr valve, which might explain the engine light...I assume the sputtering only lasts until it warms up. Having worked for Dodge for some time, I can say that these are uncommon problems for a van so new, unless it's a high mileage, or poorly maintained vehicle... Very peculiar. Normally they are very reliable (I drive one myself). Take care & good luck

Hello Brandy... You might also want to check the condition of the Throttle Body - for cleanliness that is. If it's very dirty, not enough air can pass around its internal blade, causing the engine to run rough, slower than normal and eventually stalling. This is happening when you're turning, placing a heavier load on the motor from the P/S pump. Please have this cleaned, battery disconnected for several minutes to reset the computer and try again. I think you'll see an improvement. Post again if you continue to have troubles.
