Question about 2005 Dodge Caravan
For Kittydog 90 - The overheating problem is either the thermostat or water pump. Since you have to drain the cooling system to do one, you should replace both along with the hoses if they are more than 3 years old. Depending on how hot it got and whether there was any coolant in the engine block, it's tough to know what caused it to die on you.
For Scoutdiver - I don't know what you mean by a computer chip, I am used to seeing computer boards that get replaced. It sounds like you may need to have the mechanic check for computer codes to see if any software needs to be updated. It may have been that the computer part was good but an airmass meter or a sensor was actually bad. I would try unhooking the ground cable from the battery for 2 minutes and then hooking it backup just to see if it doesn't allow a computer issue to clear itself up.
