Question about 1994 Dodge Caravan
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.
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?
