2001 dodge grand caravan stalls

My 2001 dodge grand caravan stalls after only 1 or 2 miles of driving then it will turn over but not start until it sits for 20-30 minutes. Also started happening when transmission went into limp mode. I replaced the speed sensors but dont think it did anything. Thank you for any help.

    !994 dodge caravan, I went to work it was fine, it sat for 9 hours, then I started it, then began started to drive home a few minutes later it stalled on me, for no reason, I waited a couple of minutes it started again, so I drove 4 more more blocks down the street, then it stall for no reason again, Finally after a few more minutes waiting, it started again, pulled in my drive way then it stalled again, this time with a oil light on the dashboard, and I just changed my oil 3 days before.So I let it sit for 20minutes, then it started again, but this time I parked it close to the house.I now I am afraid to drive down the road tomorrow, fearing it might stalll again. Can someone please help me find the problem.

    I changed out the two speed sensors on the tranny and it didnt do anything. I also changed the cam and crank position sensors because that was a code it was giving and still nothing. I finally broke down and took it to a shop and it was the crank and cam sensors not working together so they have to reprogram my computer. The transmission was the solenoid pack in the trans. I get it back tuesday so I will see if it works. It will cost me almost $600 but its worth it if my van runs and its cheaper than a new tranny.

    How can I check if my 2001 Grand caravan is Flex Fuel?

  • Rob McFarlane May 11, 2010

    Are there any check engine light on? has the fuel pressure been checked? This could also be a pcm issue. If the engine light is on, or has been on get the codes checked, very important.

I have a 2002 Dodge Caravan and when I start the van and turn on the AC a belt starts squeaking and the van runs rough with a rattling noise under passanger side of the hood. Sometimes this causes the van...

did this occour suddenly? if you can get someone to turn the A/C on briefly while your looking under the bonnet and look at the A/C pump. if you dont know what one it is wait untill they turn it on and find which pulley stops turning. because it sounds to me like your A/C pump has seized and if it engages and the pulley stops turning that would confirm it. once you know you can still drive it just dont turn the A/C on untill you get the compresser replaced

Check the sensors on the throttle body. There is a sensor that controls air to fuel ratio. If that sensor is bad then the car will run and then stall out while in drive. I had the same problem when it was cold outside last winter. If you dont want to dish out the money without knowing if it is that part at fault or not then start the van pop the hood and located the throttle body. Place your hand on the sensors and give them a little shake and then make sure they are plugged in all the way. You could also turn the van off and unhook the sensor clean the connectors and plug it back in. That should do the trick and if it doesnt stall anymore then I would replace those sensors if I was you. One more thing. If your giving the sensors a tug while the car is running and you hear it going to stall you could located the gas pedal cable and give it a rev or two by hand so it doesnt stall out and turn off. By the way. You van isnt over heating at all is it?
