SOURCE: ticking sound on 2001 dodge grand caravan 135000mi

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.

SOURCE: I can't find the thermostat on my 2001 Dodge

Hello jhenry246, my name is JShreader. Thank you for choosing

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

SOURCE: 2005 Dodge caravan is overheating, but there is no

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

My dash has quit working on my 2001 dodge caravan

Have you ever had any work done in that area? Check all fuses and the back side of the fuse cover points you to what each fuse does. If you've had damage to the dash it is quite likely where your problem is.

The needle on my dash for the Temp every once in a while goes to H. It doesn't overheat or steam up. We put a new thermostat in and I had the radiator flushed but it is still doing the same. I don't feel...

from experience, it is a 50% chance it is the ingnition switch(the electrical one not the key). The switch controls a multitude of circuits. your engine isn't truly over heating, it should be fine for your trip. Also check all the ground connections you can find for tight, clean connections.

My 2001 Dodge Caravan's transmission is stuck in reverse.

Things haven't changed much...look on top of the transmission in the engine compartment and look at the shifting linkage. Look for anything that could be interfering with the shifting. One linkage is the cable to the Shift Lever and Rod that goes down into the transmission. Remove the cable adjustment screw.
Move the shift lever rod towards the front of the Van into the Park Indent Position. Place the Driver's Position (Dash) Shift Lever into Park and then reconnect the Cable to the Shift Lever and tighten down the cable adjustment screw to 70 in-lbs.
Check operation's
Let me know if this helped, or if you have any additional information, questions of problems, Feel free to contact me at!

Ok so we've placed a new gas cap in service on our 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan and we still show a P0455 code. What is the best place to start now?

The best place to start is with a full visual inspection of the fuel lines/hoses to make sure you have no leaks. The next thing will be to replace the purge solenoid. When they go bad they will show code P0455 along with others sometimes.

Intermitant cold start misfire

Most likely none are related to the computer. Surging idle is often a sign of a vacuum leak and can cause random misfires. Vacuum leak would also cause hesitation. Sensor heater can be a fuse, wiring or bad sensor. What's the window doing?

Dodge caravan not starting

Google them or call the dealer or a place like autozone for the code info. I checked those codes & maybe you typed them wrong,they aren't in chrysler format & are meaningless at this point. Check the fuel pressure.

Rad fans run with engine off drain the battery 2001 Dodge Caravan

I have never heard of any tech telling a customer that thier PCM was nearing the end of life. Your problem most likely exists in the PDC( power ditribution center) the underhood fuse/relay box. There are layers of internal wires and connectors which can short etc. also, the pcm could cause this issues, but would set a code when doing so. Another thing to check is to see if the fan wiring harness is shorted to another component. It is impossible to diagnose your vehicle over the net, I recommend you take your van to a reputable dealer who's techs are trained to deal with these wiring issues.
