Have you pulled a plug wire and checked for spark? Do you know for sure that your fuel injectors are firing? You can get gas all the way up to the fuel rail and nothing coming from the injectors. If there is no power getting to the injectors (check them for pulses while turning the engine over) The camshaft sensor will be the problem. They are known for just dying out. If this doesn't help, I'll still be here for you. Best wishes to ya.

    If you have no spark at the plug, then I would have them check the PCM and the ASD Relay. Also the coil pack. I brought up the camshaft sensor in case you did have spark. Didn't mention if you had spark, and most of the time when they just die, it's the camshaft sensor. Sorry if I misunderstood you. I didn't know what you already tested. I sincerely hope that it's a cheap fix for you. Let me know how it goes.

    I guess that the camshaft sensor wouldn't send out a signal if the camshaft wasn't turning. Glad to hear that you have your vehicle running again. Hope you didn't have to pay much to have it done. Take care and God bless. I hope that I don't see you on here again.

2002 dodge grand caravan 3.3 v6 running rough like on 4 plugs


If one of your ignition coils on the coil pack has gone out, that would affect two cylinders, and you would only have 4 cylinders still functioning. Those two cylinders would not have spark, well, actually a jolt of high voltage current, on the wires going to the spark plugs.

po700 code just means you have codes
P0351-IGNITION COIL #1 PRIMARY CIRCUIT

WHEN MONITORED
With battery voltage greater than 8 volts during engine cranking or greater than 13 volts with engine running. Engine RPM less than 3000. No coil in dwell during test.

SET CONDITION
Peak current is not achieved with battery based dwell plus 1.5 msec of diagnostic offset. It takes less than 3 seconds during cranking or up to 6 seconds while running to set.

POSSIBLE CAUSES
- Ignition coil
- Intermittent condition
- ASD relay output circuit
- Ignition coil driver circuit open
- Ignition coil driver circuit shorted to ground
- PCM

Test at the spark plug if you are getting current there with a cheap spark plug tester, if not, it could be the spark box. ( it used to be an ignition coil on older cars ) double check the computer for codes which may lead to a cam sensor not giving the PCM information.

1992 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3l dies on highway.


Its normal for the pump to run for three seconds then shut off if the car engine is off. . This indicates that the fuel pump turned on and the pressure did reach specifications. If the pump did not reach pressure the pump would continue to run, You need to check for proper pressure with a gauge. If tthe pressure is ok then you have another issue like an ignition module or crank sensor if applicable. You may have to drive the car with the fuel gauge hooked up to see if you still have pressure when it dies.. I know you said you replaced the pump already but do you have the same issues as before you replaced it. This would indicate which direction you need to go now. If the same then its prabably not the pump.

Ignition Coil A,B,C Primary/Secondary malfunction


Remove the Caravan Ignition Coil Step1 Look under the hood for a distributor. The spark plug wiresmag-glass_10x10.gif connect into the distributor cap. If you don't see a distributor, you may have a model with a distributorless ignition system. Step2 Find the ignition coil. On a Dodge Caravan, the ignition coil is at the back of the intake manifold. Disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent injury while you work. Step3 Determine whether you need to remove the windshield wiper/motor module assembly. This won't be necessary on all models. Step4 Disengage the connector securing the wiring harness connector to the Dodge Caravan ignition coil. Then, disconnect the ignition wire from the ignition coil. Step5 Use a socket set to remove the mounting bolts. There are upper and lower mounting bolts. Separate the ignition coil from the mounting bracket. Install the New Ignition Coil Step1 Insert the new ignition coil. Mount the Dodge Caravan ignition coil to the mounting bracket. Step2 Attach the mounted assembly to the intake manifold. With a Torque wrench, tighten the fasteners securing the ignition coil to the mounting bracket with 96 inch pounds of torque (10 Nm). Step3 Tighten the bolts that secure the intake manifold to the bracket with 115 inch pounds of torque (13 Nm). Step4 Connect the wire harness and any other parts you removed, including the negative battery cable.

Check MAP sensor. If PCM gets wrong data from MAP sensor it should offset ignition timing and/or make fuel mixture too lean or too rich.

96 Grand Caravan just died


No spark indicates either a coil,distributor,or crank position sensor problem.
