Question about 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

2000 3.3 dodge missing like its running on 2 cylinders

It's running real rough all of a sudden. Was running great then 1 second later stalled & when I got it started again (Had to hold it to the floor), it started running very rough, like only 2 or 3 cylinders were firing. So far I tried another coil pack & that didn't help. Maybe a sensor?

Dont start it up anymore till pull the front cover off and check the timing belt as it sounds like its stripped a tooth and jumped over and now its banged the valves but i am known to be wrong with my diagnostics but check it out anyway .

    sorry but iam a brit mechanic whos never seen this engine or vehicle ,i was just trying to help with a suggestion or two ,Now with a fault like this i would really need my head under the bonnet and my hammer in my hand to thump it but all joking apart without product knowledge iam sunk and up the proverbial creek as i have no idea if it has power pack coil or a single coil on each cylinder which is what i would look at first and if a power pack type coil pack then examine it carefully for cracking of the insulation and then with my induction timing light check the spark on each cylinder ,if you can read the OBDII better still although a fault will not always show on here and its then down to basics to look for the fault ,or you could try a direct question to one of the american mechanics who answer questions on here in their spare time like DJtech or emmisionwiz but have a look at what i said and if need be reply to this post and will give some help however i can with the technology side as its got four wheels and an engine at the end of the day .But i have no product knowledge of this vehicle so its no good asking me where this or that is as i can only give a educated guess but its a engine so i will know what just not where .

1999 Crown Victoria running rough after trans rebuild?

Real simple

Put a professional scan tool into the under dash connector

Road test

Look at data & then properly diagnose ANY problems & resolve

Why a local shop or a dealer is stumped is beyond me

IF-you do a cylinder leak down test & have no mechanical
valve sealing issues

Then you use any evap smoke machine to check for vacuum leaks
on the entire vehicle

You then look at & test all electrical system items needed

Then you review all emission monitors,fuel trim,fuel pressure,
oxygen sensor voltage & much more

Cylinder misfires etc

You do two thing

You get all the data avail with & without a road test from the scan tool

Then you must component test using an oscilloscope until some
problem is found

I believe not much that should have been done was regardless
of order or sequence

So far no one tried to find a problem or had the knowledge to do so

You may simply have a worn out & blocked exhaust converter

Do the service below.

Engine stalling and rough run issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control. If this doesn't improve the problem you have mechanical problems in the engine like a low cylinder die to worn rings or leaking valve seats.

I have research around and found that the Bank 1 sensor 3 O2 sensor is post Cat. But when I got under there I dont see anything that could resemble a sensor. Where is it. Please help. Marc

ALLDATA Editor's Note: Always verify #1 cylinder location prior to diagnosis and repair.

- Cylinder bank number one is the bank that contains number one cylinder.

Cylinder #1 on right side.

- The first oxygen sensor in cylinder bank # 1 is numbered O2 Sensor 1/1.
- The second oxygen sensor in cylinder bank # 1 is numbered O2 Sensor 1/2.
- A third oxygen sensor in cylinder bank # 1 would be numbered O2 Sensor 1/3.
- The first oxygen sensor in cylinder bank # 2 is numbered O2 Sensor 2/1.
- The second oxygen sensor in cylinder bank # 2 is numbered O2 Sensor 1/1.

- If a V-6 or V-8 vehicle only uses one downstream Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) it is numbered O2 Sensor 1/2, even if it uses two upstream HO2S.

Car stalling out and bot starting after being driven for awhile.

mcdevito75 Here, It"s possible the ignition Module is going bad, no way to test and if so, one day the car will not start at all.----------It can also be a vapor loc, wher the fuel is evaporating before it reaches the cylinders. Best Bet, have your local shop check both these items.
