Question about 1994 Dodge Caravan

3 Answers

Low speed stalling while engine is warm

I have a 1994 Dodge Caravan with a 3L engine that runs great going down the road and under acceleration, but when you stop or let off the gas at low rpm it stalls once the engine is warm. In cold weather it doesn't seem to be as bad and when you first start it up in the morning it runs ok.

After advice from someone I changed the Coolant Temp Sensor with no change to the performance. I was also instructed to pull a plug wire while the engine was running and there was really no change in doing so on any cylinder I tried.

I had the same issue. I had to replace the fuel pump. this does not because there is a rubbber hose that connects the pump to the metal fuel line and this was eaten through. the pump still worked it was just that line failed.

My 1994 Caravan with the 3.0L used to stall occasionally when warm at low rpm. Several years ago I read an article on the internet on stalling and hesitation on these vehicles. The writer recommended spraying an entire can of Mopar Combustion Chamber Cleaner {available at any Dodge/Chrysler dealer} into the throttle body while the car is idling. Then shut off the motor and let it set to dissolve the carbon deposits. After a couple of hours, drive the car and try to do at least 5 full throttle starts as traffic allows - floor it, slow down, repeat. This is supposed to burn out the excess deposits and it worked for me. I use this stuff about every 6 months now, and I haven't had a problem with stalling in years. In fact at over 200,000 miles, my Caravan performs better than it did 10 years ago. A can costs around 7 bucks, so its a really cheap fix!

It just might be that the choke is stuck open.

Our 1995 Dodge caravan starts fine dies.


Do the following

Here are the most common causes of idle surge, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

My 1994 caravan drives about 200 feet then starts slipping.If I turn the ignition off and back on it will go another 200 feet.friends told me it is some sort of sensor .does any know whats going on .thanks


Please define the word "slipping" for me. To me it means the transmission is "slipping", the van is going down the road, and then the engine RPM's are still there, but the van keeps slowing down ? You try to put on more acceleration, but the engine revs up higher, but you go nowhere ?
Please let me know.

Van leaps and stalls when parked. Fuel filter?


Then you might want to idle the low idle speed up a half a turm to see if that sovles the problem.

I have a 1994 Dodge Dakota, no power at low rpms


yes it does if it is reading lets say lower than normal that would explain easy start up and stalling later.the coolant temp sensor has two wires .so if your car warms up and your coolant is about 200 degrees your coolant sensor might say 80 degrees .access to a scanner to check temp would be great.

The 3.0 liter is a Mitsubishi design and is not a free wheeling engine or a non interference design, this does not mean the valves are bent, install the belt and then check for bent valves.
