Question about 1996 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

Chugging up hill

My husband was driving the van. He said it was chugging up hill and the speed tack wasn't moving at all. Like he couldn't tell what his speed was. The other tack was almost in the red. The check engine light was on and it didn't seem like it wanted to shift. Checked the oil and there wasn't any. Checked the trans. and the oil was fine. Had some work done on the trans. back in 2006.

Van acts like the fuel filter is plugged, and losses power when going up hills


Do you have a fuel pump? If its bad or weak, you aren't getting enough gas to your engine. Has anyone thought of the filter in your gas tank?

95 dodge van, 2500. has a BAD engine miss, seems to smooth out when going up hill (giving it some gas) gets bad again when just going cruise speed..


Well to start with, if you have a 1995 Dodge van and it has the original engine, you have a fuel injector for each cylinder. The last year Dodge used a carb was 1987.
So you could have injectors that are not working, or the plugs may not be firing because of the cap or rotor, or it could be a compression or vac problem.
I would want to know which cylinders and then go down the list of possible causes. You should be able to use a vac gauge or tach and pull one wire at a time to find the weak cylinders.
