    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 !

Frequent stalling


Could be the ASD relay among other things.
Can you check to see if the coil and injectors have power the next time it fails to start ?

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.

After hot engine wont start and smells like gas


Most likely causes are bad engine coolant temp sensor OR leaking fuel injectors. Bad engine coolant temp sensor will give computer false reading and computer provides wrong air fuel mixture. Leaking fuel injectors will load the engine with raw gas--just like flooding it. Try pushing the gas pedal to the floor and holding it there when cranking when hot. That forces the computer into "clear flood" mode and it shuts off the injectors. If it starts up with pedal down, that would be a sign of leaking injectors.
