SOURCE: Hard start when cold, running rich, poor fuel economy

Chrysler has a bulletin out for a simular condititon that involves replacing the pcm. Heres the bulletin number 18-005-04. This is only 1 possible cause , Fuel pressure, coolant temp sensor, thottle position sensor all can cause like problems. Seeing sensor values and fuel adaptives with a scan tool helps pin point problems.

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.

My 2003 dodge grand caravan se with a 3.3l has had intermittent starting problem for 1 and 1/2 years now. Codes p0352 and p0353 have popped a few times. Replaced coil pack, and used electrical grease in...


You might want to have a shop take a look at the engine computer. Code 352 and 353 are used when the engine has direct ignition, and your van uses a single coil for all 6 cylinders. 352 would be for the coil for cylinder 2 and 353 would be for cylinder 3 which would not really apply to your model.
The computer controls spark so it could be a computer problem.
You should not smell gas in the engine compartment unless there is a leak, or the gas tank venting system is not working correctly.

Gas pedal wont go down once in gear


I would check a few things. first the engine mounts. make sure the engine isn't rocking over. second cruise control ? if it has cruise control I would unhook the cable to the throttle from the cruise control and see if that was the issue. some times the control box will pull in deceleration mode and stick there. also the decelerator valve on the throttle body may be defective.

try this push the gas pedal all thy way to the floor then try to start the engine if it starts then the engine was flooded this is most likely caused by the engine needing a good old fashioned tune up.

My van will barely start only if I push the gas pedal to the floor. And still then will die almost right away. I can smell tons of gas, Plugs are wet with gas too. I did change the o2s and have the same...


I don't think it is your O2 sensor especially from the catylatic, because you mention smelling like gas and presence of gasoline. "Plugs" hopefully referal to the spark plugs, try to trace where you see gasoline and where it is coming strongest from. This is a case of leaked fuel line, fuel rails, fuel injectors.
1) Trace the source of where it is wet, there maybe a leak somewhere and you car is not getting the amount of fuel pressure to combust and thus make the engine dies. 2) Check your fuel injectors, fuel line rail, could be leaking or become loosen and is spraying gas when the fuel line is pressured into the spark plug socket. 3) You may have a dead spark plug one or more, and isn't combusting the gasoline, thus creating no compression leading to engine dying. 4) Leaking head gasket. Best is tracing where the gas is spewing from. That should help.

This would indicate a problem with the automatic choke. Putting the pedal to the floor creates the same effect as the choke when starting the car.

1995 dodge caravan S.E. 3.3L doesn't want to start, then does and dies out (also pushing gas petal almost to the floor?????)


pushing gas pedal to near floor causes what is called clear flood fuction. if cranking engine with near full throttle the fuel injectors will not activate, assumes flooded engine and will not start.
most likely you have a very dirty throttle body. clean well with tooth brush and carb cleanr esecially were the throttle plate rests at idle, the plate and the wall of body. just a little carbon build up will cause a no start
