Question about 2001 Dodge Caravan
THE THERMOSTAT WAS NOT DOING ITS THING IT STALD TWCE IN TRAFFIC SO I CHANGED IT THEN WOULD NOT SART AT ALL CODE P032 CAME UP ON DASH IN THE KMS SECTION WHAT WOULD THIS CODE BE?
Hi, My 2000 Caravan had the same thing. It is probably your lifters. I fixed my noisy lifters by putting a liter of tranny fluid in with the oil. I ran the van for about an hour or 2 then changed the oil.

Hello jhenry246, my name is JShreader. Thank you for choosing fixya.com
The Thermostat is located behind the Thermostat Housing on almost all Vehicles. There are 3 different Engine types they used in this Caravan this particular year. I have uploaded you pictures showing the locations of the Thermostat and Housings for each Engine in .pdf format. You can download them by clicking HERE. The engine cooling thermostats are a wax pellet driven, reverse poppet choke type. If you follow the Upper Radiator Hose up to the side of the Engine, it connects to the Thermostat Housing.
You must drain the Cooling System before you remove it. I went ahead and made you up the replacement procedures for replacing this Thermostat. You can download it by clicking HERE.
I hope this helps you. If you have any more questions or need any more diagrams, please don't hesitate to ask...Thanks again, JShreader!

Just had that problem w/ my 01 Dekota, it was the resistor that used to be mounted on the firewall and easy to get to but that is now mounted low on the back of the engine jammed into a bey tight position. I couldn't get to it myself, so ended up taking it to neighborhood garage. Cost me about $150

Overheating can be caused through a lot of things But 1st on the heater pipe going into the cab ,through the firewall there is 2 heater pipes 1of them has a air valve on it so when you turn to hot the vacuum opens the valve and lets the hot water come through.or it could be under the dash on inside of firewall by heater inlet.BUT check your radiator for dust and dirt in the outer cores/Loose fan balt/water pump falty/Head gasket leaking/ plus others will all cause
the car to overheat .
So let me know how you get on Ron
