Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

I am having oil problems.

The oil light on my 1998 Dodge Caravan Sport 3.3 liter engine came on, and I can hear a pecking noise like it might be the lifters. I changed the oil. I haven't driven it much, the oil light did not come on but I can still hear the pecking noise. It is not as bad as it was before. Do you think it might be the oil pump? Where is the oil pump located if I do need to change it?

It is very possible that it is the oil pump but before you change it check out the oil sending unit normally it is somewhere around the oil filter and to answer your question the oil pump is in the oil pan

Engine ticking in 1998 dodge grand caravan


if its a ticking noise then its probably a lifter noise from age and mileage or none scheduled maintenance. on your next oil change you can try running an oil system cleaner through your engine but this is not something to be overly concerned about.

Pecking noise in motor


Where did you put the Sea Foam? (Fuel Tank or Oil)
What is the Code that came up?

The noise (without hearing it) is hard to answer but it could be a sticking Lifter, Low Engine Oil, Broken Internal Component, Spun Bearing, Transmission, and the list goes on and on.

If you can tell me what the code it, I can help you a little more. P0300 -P0306 are Misfire Codes. I am curious what you have

The correct oil weight is 5W20, but 5W30 can be used also. Be consistant when using oil, try to use the same brand and always use the same viscosity. This vehicle requires 4.5 liters of engine oil.

Dodge Caravan 2000, 3 l engine, 109000 km/ mechanical valve lifters that are out of adjustment


The next time you do an oil change, put a liter of tranny fluid in with the oil BEFORE you change it. Let it run for an hour or two.The tranny fluid will clean out the gunk that causes your lifters to stick.Now do your oil change. Do this each time you change your oil, only use a 1/2 liter each time. You will be amazed at the difference, I was.
