Try a can of starter fluid and spray it in the throttle body and if the car starts and runs it is the fuel pump but before you change the fuel pump find out where the fuel pump relay is these are normally under the hood on the drivers side it is a small square box the owners manual will not tell you which one it is but what I normally do in a situation like this is I go to a parts store and see if they have one in stock and count the prongs and draw out a little diagram and that will help you locate the right one for you

SOURCE: 98 DODGE CARAVAN INTERMITTELY WON'T START

intermittent no start situations generally appear when you have defective crank position sensor (since it cant get idea what the crank angle is) and fuel pump issues( since it cant receive enough fuel)

Why is my 98 dodge caravan dying while driving?


This could be catalytic converter plugging off or fuel pump or filter issue. Especially if it runs good at low speed.

My 98 mercury mountaineer died and won't start


check fuse, check for fire, if no fire when turning over probably busted timing belt/chain, if fire then check for fuel

My 2000 Dodge Caravan won't start


Are you saying the engine will not crank, or crank but will not start ?
None of the engine sensors come into play until after the engine is cranking.
Cranking problems can include the neutral safety switch and other factors with the crank circuit back to the key switch.

My 98 dodge caravan has a loss of power and dies when stopping


Filter is mounted directly above the pump module on top of the fuel tank. You may have to drop it down a little bit to change it. Also check the fuel pressure with a good gauge while it's running poorly and see if it's out of spec.

98 caravan died while driving, won't start


Does it crank over and not start? or does it do absolutely nothing when you turn the key?
if it does nothing you try a boost
It sounds like you have a connection problem somewhere if there is little or no power to anything..........I'm not real familiar with the fuse locations on caravans but your owners manual should tell you where to locate them.........check both fuse panels under the hood and in the interior...make sure none of them are blown....also you might have a wiring problem..........the part that confuse me a little is the fact that it died while driving but didn't give signs of a dead battery........which leads me to think its a blown fuse or a broken wire or bad connection.......
hope this helps.......Good luck!
