    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 2005 dodge grand caravan. It stalls, spits and sputters. Its like it tachs out at 3000rpm. I need to figure out how to check the engine code? It wont start so i can't take it to advanced auto or...

This was possible in the older ones the newer cars are not that way, a scan tool is the only way to get the codes that i know of but anyway this problem you are having sounds like a fuelpump problem, try a quick trick, have someone try to start it while you beat on the bottom of the fuel tank with a rubber hammer, see if it starts, if it does then the pump is bad, sometimes shake it will make contact and get pump going, i thing this is why there was no power and the sputters and spits.

97 dodge grand caravan 3.3 L no power to fuel inj and fuel pump engine runs fine on starting fluid. Eatx relay seems to be the problem

If it runs fine on starting fluid, then it points to a fuel pump or circuit being bad.

Good luck.

I have a 1997 3.8 dodge grand caravan. When i start it up it only runs a short time then shuts off. i replaced the fuel pump but it does the samething. Can it be the crank sensor.

Mike, Did you replace the Fuel pump yourself? I am attempting to replace the fuel pump on my 97 but the big O ring is giving me all kinds of trouble. The instructions were very vague and I cant seem to get it seated right.

Van sputters still and worse then before

I would recommend having the TPS sensor checked as that is the first cause for rough idles and stalls...
