Sounds like you have some transmission problems which could get expensive, but a fluid & filter change is where I'd start, just in case you get lucky, if it hasn't been done in a while. MAKE SURE they replace fluid with nothing other than "Mopar"/Chrysler ATF3 or ATF4 transmission fluid. Don't let them tell you they have same thing, insist on it. Many a shop swears it's the same, but it's been proven time & time again, it's not the same.

I own a 1994 Dodge Caravan. It will idol but when I push the accelerator, it dies out. What could it be?

Sounds like a fuel issue. Hook a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel rail and start the van. You should have at least 40lbs of pressure. Unfortunately for you, Dodge put everything in the fuel tank as a unit, so if it is just a plugged fuel filter you are still looking at a high repair bill.

Dodge caravan dies when in gear

Vacuum leaks. ( hissing noise around the engine). Tune up (plugs and wires). clean the throttle body(inside of it). All these can cause rough idle. The dieing can be from transmission problems. Can you rev the van up and keep it running while in gear? Or does it die then too? You can replace the solenoid pack on the outside of the transmission for around $250, if you do it yourself. If you do this, DO NOT get any dirt in the holes of the transmission where the solenoid pack sets. Clean it well before you remove the old pack.

Sounds like a crank sensor or a mass air flow sensor. Take it to an Auto parts store and have them read the trouble code for you. It will tell you what circuit is affected.

Moter will turn over, but will not start?

Had the same problem with a 2003. It was electrical changed the crank sensor and it ran for 10 min then wouldn't run anymore. Changed the cam sensor and it;s been running for a week.
Now the blower only blows on high (not related)

Transmission will not engage

Sounds like your torque converter may not be unlocking which is like letting your foot out on the clutch on a manual trans and not releasing the brake. Can you move it to neutral ok? To test the theory, move it to neutral, start the vehicle, then without putting your foot on the brake shift to drive with a liitle gas. If you can get going this way, it is the torque converter.
