Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan
We suspect the timing belt went, it's actually a 98 plymouth voyager but think it is same as caravan. Put new battery in it still won't even turn over. It quit while driving down the road. Is it an interference belt, engine? I think it is just want confirmation. A friend of mine said if it is an interference (or anti-interference) belt then maybe belt going caused damage to engine, like pistons jammed up engine and will cost more than just replacing timing belt
The 3 liter mitsubishi is pretty prone to this actually. You would have to tear it down to see what happened, but yes it's likely that you have a bent valve and/or hole in the top of a piston from a valve.
