Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan
Pull the oil dipstick and see if you have a lot of bubbles in the oil. If your head gasket is blown you will have coolant mixing with oil causing the bubbles. If you don't see the bubbles, you may still have a bad head gasket but should consider that it may a be a bad intake manifold gasket. Look on the ends of the engine block - where the transmission attaches on the driver's side and the drive belt is on the passenger side. Look for signs of coolant leaking onto the outside of the block castings at the base of the lower intake manifold chamber (it looks sort of like the flattened bottom of a V) . If it's there you may just have the manifold gasket leak. My '03 T&C with the 3.3l had this problem. It ran rough, and only with no pedal being applied. Driving was tough to get it to the shop since it died at each stop light and required the gas pedal to be feathered to keep it running.
If you have more than amateur skills you can replace it yourself.
