Re: smell in my caravn
It may be a coolant leak in your heater core, but coolant has more of a sweet smell than a fishy one, and you would notice a dampness on the passenger side floormat. it is probably just a mold in the air filter of the blower motor and needs replaced

probably not. The computer has detected a fault. This may or may not cause symptoms, but it certainly could be affecting your mileage. What you need to do is go to your local parts chain and ask for a free scan. When they scan the car (only takes a minute), write down the codes. They will start with a "P" and have 4 digits after the P. Please send these codes to us, and we can provide repair advice to fix your car. OK?
the heat or cold adjustment control in my 2002 grand caravan will only work on maximum adjustment, if you try to reduce the speed of the blower by turning the control knob 1 knot, 2, 3 and 4 down it won't work it only work at the last position which is the 5th or last turn of the control knob. please let me know what could be the problem. thanks.
The problem is quite possibly brakes that are not releasing properly. It may be the emergency brake cable hanging up and keeping the back brakes on.
The other possibility is that the front calipers are stuck or sticking.
Brake linings are made out of the same material as clutch material.
If you are careful not to burn yourself, next time you smell burning clutch/brake, you can put your hand on each of the wheels in the center and feel them for heat. If they are warm/hot, you can tell which one(s) are causing the problem.
