    Any black smoke coming out of it, (exhaust tailpipe.) My guess is your not getting enough fuel that's why I asked that question. Does the vehicle quit running? When was fuel filter replaced last?

I have a 06 dodge grand caravan when my van it gets at a quarter tank of gas and when i stop it will shut off and as it gets lower to the E it gets worse shutting off i try not to let it get below a q


The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank. The pump is cooled by the fuel. Once the fuel level get down to the 1/4 tank, the fuel module has very little fuel to dissipate heat into. If the pump is aging and getting hot, this will cause it to bind and stop working. I don't believe the sending unit is bad, since your fuel gauge seems to be reading correctly. You have some choices here. You can get a new pump and have it installed in the existing module assembly. The pump runs about $90.00 US. Replacement involved pulling the fuel pump module from the tank, disassembling it and replacing the pump, reassembling it and replacing the module in the tank. You can replace the entire module, which includes the pump, strainer, float, sending unit. This runs about $230.00 US. These prices are for parts only. Labor is extra.

You have a fuel pump relay that sends power to the fuel pump. Do you hear the fuel pump turn on when you start the van? If not then check the relay. sometimes you can have someone tap the top of the relay while the key is being turned. If it starts then change the relay. about 10$ from rockauto.com.

The van has a emergency cut switch that keep the van from starting it a 97 dodge van


Theres a fuel pump relay under the hood on the drivers side, this would stop the flow of fuel. Does the van crank over?? If not check the starter relay.
