It could be worth double checking that the ecu for your old motor is compatable with the new one as within 3 yrs a lot of changes can be made by the vehicals manufacturer

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.

I am thinking of buying a 1998 intriped but people say they have alot of electrical this true

Honestly, they have a lot of problems period-the engines are known for a 'sludge' buildup. the transmissions are just troublesome period and they steering and suspension systems are known to have numerous issues-the 'center-take off' links for the steering rack bushings actually fall out, causing a very dangerous driving situation. You could do much better no matter what the cost, really.

Well i have a dodge intriped 1998 and i change the engine, starter and steering colum and i cannot start the car. and i tested everything so far. so i guess i,m ready to try your solution . where do you...

Battery temp sensor won't stop it from starting! that will cause check engine light to appear! I would look into seeing if you have all your wires directly connected and run a OBD 2 scan if engine light is on should be on ! and find out what sensor is not connected!

I would like a dodge expert to help me with this problem

If the engine is a 2.7L. What is most likely wrong is his. The engine out of the 2001 has a different timing gear on the left cylinder head then the one on the 1998. In 1998 the engine computer is a SBEC controler(single board engine controler) an the 2001 is a NGC controler(next generation controler) the timing windows on those gears are in different positions. The controler doesnt know where the timing is.
