Question about 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

Engine light is on

2004 grand caravan, 97.000 miles, where is the PVC valve and can this be the problem with the engine light being lit up on my dash? What should I try first? Is this something I can do myself?

Thanks,
Art

    HelperHelpee has suggested taking it to a garage to test it on the computer. I have had my van in to the Chrysler Dealership numerous times and each time they try something different. It seems to me they are simply guessing. When the engine light is on my van tends to sputter when accelerating.

The engine light could be on for a multitude of reasons. Your best bet is to find a garage that will hook it up to the computer (many do this free of charge) where they can get the code, look it up and find out the cause. I had an uncommon code come up for my car (the light was on when I bought it) that the garage did not know but after running an online search of the code, I found out it was a fan fuse under the hood! The 1st code that came up was for a filter that needed changing and then the light came on again and it was the unknown code. Don't try and guess, it could be almost anything.
