    Mine does the same thing. I have been told it is the fuel pump which I have to take out the gas tank the pump costs $160. I am hoping it is some kind of sensor instead or something easier.

    that sounds like it might be the pcm witch is easy to fix but expensive i have found them for $300.00 or a little less. but i am waiting to get a code reader.

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 93 Geo Metro 1 liter 5 speed runs fine but ifvu


6th post wins, with Injector.
the injector can fail for these reasons.
the problem in car lingo, is FLOODING.
and after doing all that did it run? (my other shoe drops)!

1: the 0-rings bad, on side.
2: the injector is bad, it leaks.
3: the ECU injector drive line is failing. (bad ECU)
4: loss of spark always ends in flooding.
5: ECT sensor bad, sending water temp reading to -40C Siberian.
did you get the FLASH codes from the CEL lamp yet, with the
diagnostic jumper , inserted?
6: bad need of tune up, air filter clogged, spark plugs long ago, dead.
do a tuneup every 10 years, or 60k miles and win..
7: Cam belt slipped, low compression for any reasons. again, the 60k mile tune up wins.

when you crank the engine over, with the throttle at wide open throttle
this ACT, cuts all injections. cranking, this covered in the operators
manual, for UN-Flooding all gas engines. and all EFI engines.
and all Suzuki's' (or Geos)

on old dogs like this, i do compression first.
saving a fortune in parts , time and labor, if bad.
do it WOT, wide open throttle.

cheers !

Engine sputters when accelerating


The flashing light means the problem is serious enough to cause damage to the catalytic converter. Have the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed. And get the plugs replaced.

Runs fine for awhile then acts likes it is flooding


If you have alot of miles on it then the cat converter is probably plugged. First check your air cleaner and fuel filter, they are affordable. Converters get plugged after 50k but can go to 150k..all luck on our parts. Hope this helps.:)

Stalling on our 96 Dodge Caravan


Once a filter plugs its pluged. You drop that much pressure its time for a new fuel pump.
