Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan
1998 dodge sport caravan doesnt want to run on low speed in town it will just die while moving at a light or stop sign will die when on highway it bucks and jerks. wlile starting it backfires, had fuel pump checked said was ok even sitting van in neutral and pushing on gas it will pause and want to die no water in gas every once in a while dashinstruments will all stop but van still runs maybe a day later when finally get it running they will be back on
This may be a pcm problem, but it really does sound like a fuel pump., except for the dash light issue. Your dealer is the best alternative at this point. They have all the tools and scanners that are specific to your vehicle. Probable only cost an hours diagnostic fee. Give them as much info as you can, and tell them what has already been done.

Tips for a great answer:
Here are the most common causes of idle surge, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake
