My first guess is the booster pump has failed. You probably should shop around before you do anything else.
It will probably take more than the van is worth to fix it.
Dodge only used this system for a couple of years for obvious reasons.
I have known people who have converted them back to regular brakes.

SOURCE: changing a power brake booster off a 84 ford f350 truck

Pretty simple repair.I even did this alone.
DO NOT disconnect the brake lines unless you are changing the master cylinder out with it. Unbolt the master cylinder and move it forward slightly. From inside the truck,unbolt the brake pedal from the rod, leave the pedal hanging. Remove the 4 bolts at the firewall that retain the booster.From outside the truck reach in and draw the old booster out.You may have to move the master cylinder up or down to clear the booster.
The rod to the brake pedal will come out with the booster,make sure you put it back on the new one.

Reverse to install.

good luck
Dave

SOURCE: replace front brake pads on dodge caravan 2006

Hi, here is the step by step guide you requested. its a easy read and it will help you with this replacement procedure.

Step1 Park the Caravan on a flat, level paved or concrete surface. Release the hood latch and apply the parking brake. Step2 Open the hood and **** out half of the brake fluidmag-glass_10x10.gif from the master cylinder reservoir using the turkey baster. Discard the fluid appropriately. Do not reuse it. Replace the cap on the master cylinder. Step3 Break the lug nuts loose on the left wheel first using the breaking bar and a socket. Do not remove the lug nuts or loosen them too much. Step4 Lift the Caravan using the floor jack and place the lift point under the transmission bushing. Place a jack stand under the inside of the rocker panel in the left front where the frame is boxed. Do not place the jack stand on the rocker panel as it will most likely collapse. You can leave the floor jack in place as an added safety support, but make sure to use a jack stand. Step5 Remove the lug nuts and wheel. Step6 Remove the caliper bolts with the ratchet and a socket. Gently pry the caliper off of the rotor using the screwdriver. The pads are clipped to the caliper. Step7 Remove the outboard pad first by prying it off the caliper housing with the screwdriver. Remove the inboard pad by pulling it out of the caliper piston bore. Support the caliper to the coil spring using the bungee cord. Step8 Compress the piston in using the C-clamp. Squeeze slowly and steadily to avoid damaging the caliper piston. Step9 Install the new pads starting with the inboard pad. Since the inboard and outboard pads are identifiably different, there's only one way they will fit properly. There is a slight difference in the molding of the backing plates of the pads. Refer to the old pads you removed to make sure you're applying the pads for the left side. Step10 Apply a liberal coat of silicone brake lubricant on the caliper anchor where the backing plate of the pads sit against. Step11 Reinstall the caliper over the rotor. Step12 Apply a light coat of silicone brake lubricant to the smooth area of the caliper bolts. Insert it into the caliper to lock it to the caliper anchor. Tighten the bolts properly. Step13 Replace the wheel and lug nuts, tightening the lug nuts as tight as you can using the ratchet and a socket. Lower the Caravan and retighten the lug nuts in an alternate fashion using the torque wrench set at 100 foot pounds and a socket. Step14 Repeat the procedure for the right side. Step15 Pump the foot brake pedal when you're finished with the right side until the hydraulic pressure is restored to the caliper pistons and the brake pedal feels normal. Release the parking brake. Step16 Check and adjust the brake fluid level in the master cylindermag-glass_10x10.gif reservoir. Only add new DOT-approved brake fluid for your Caravan. Step17 Remove the wheel chock and test drive.

2003 Dodge grand caravan 6chlyder having black smoke. what should i due to stop it.


Black smoke is caused by an overly rich fuel/air mixture. This will cause your Dodge to use excess fuel and can damage the catalytic converter. The Check Engine light should be on at this time. I suggest you take it to a professional for repair.
