Question about 2001 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

2001 dodge caravan

It had a code of 1297 and replaced map sensor but still same prob... No code at all but still real rough. Reset battery to reset comp also. Someone said it had a bad head but the compress from each cylinder is 140 psi w/ no variation. New plugs and wires and pvc valve. If its the head it would not give me equal pressure would it? Oxygen sensor. On Social Security and $ real tight so i don't want to spend on to much diagnosis and sensors when i don't have it. Kind of stuck here. Please help with any guidance. Thank you. Kevin

Hate to say it but my buddy just had same or very similar problem. His was a bad valve spring. Part is like 10 bucks but if your not a mechanic it can cost anywhere from 150 to 300. He tried the Map sensor, tps, plugs wires, egr and o2 sensors. But my other friend says to remove both battery cables and touch them together for 5 mins and this may reset your computer. try that first. He has a 01 caravan

SOURCE: 2003 Dodge Neon Code P0551 and Rough Idle

I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY 2002 DODGE NEON. THE FIX WAS TO REPLACE THE POWER STEERING PRESSURE SENSOR SWITCH. IF YOU DO IT YOURSELF IT WILL PROBABLY COST ABOUT $50 OR $60 INCLUDING THE HAYNES MANUAL TELLING YOU HOW TO DO IT. I BELIEVE THE SWITCH COST ME ABOUT $30 OR $35 FROM A DODGE DEALER. IT IS PRETTY SIMPLE. TAKE OFF THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTION GOING TO THE SWITCH AND THEN TAKE OUT THE SWITCH ITSELF WITH A PROPER SIZED WRENCH. THE SWITCH IS THREADED INTO A CONNECTION ATTACHED TO METAL HOSES THAT HAVE POWER STEERING FLUID IN THEM. HAVE THE NEW SWITCH READY TO PUT IN AFTER THE OLD ONE COMES OUT,FOR POWER STEERING FLUID WILL FLOW OUT OF THE CONNECTION. PUT THREAD TAPE ON THE THREADS OF THE NEW CONNECTION. THIS WIIL HELP TO SEAL THE SWITSH FROM LEAKS. TORQUE TO SPECS AND REINSTALL THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTION. CLEAR THE CODE AND SEE IF IT COMES BACK. MINE DID NOT. OH YES, IT MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE SOME POWER STEERING FLUID TO TOP OFF ANY THAT LEAKS OUT DURING THIS PROCESS.
GOOD LUCK!

What is the p1297 code for dodge stratus 96?


Code 1297 for Chrysler products means the MAP sensor is not changing the signal when it should. Usually the sensor is not working but it could be something else. The MAP sensor would need to be tested.

Grand Caravan runs rough, even after replacing plugs and wires. ABS light and engine light are on. Not sure what to try next.


Get a scan tool or con your local garage into pulling the codes and reading off the freeze framing data (don't ask them to reset anything) and post what you get here and we can go from there. The system turned on that MIL for some reason (ABS won't cause a rough running condition).

What pins on the ECU wire harnes does the ECU use on a 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport


The vacuum line on top of the EGR is required for propper vehicle operation. The vacuum line is what opens the valve when the solenoid is comanded on. As for the MAP sensor check the injector/MAP sensor harness right by the driver side corner of the rear head. The harness tends to melt and cause rough running conditions and misfires. So would the EGR which is a common issue and yes the the whole assembly should be replaced.
