Testimonial: "unsure it does stop from time to time was told it was Lifter but not from an expert so still unsure. Sounds like galluping horses. "

DISCONNECT THE BATTERY, JACK UP AND SUPPORT YOUR CARAVAN. LYING ON YOUR BACK LOCATE THE STARTER WHICH IS ATTACHED TO THE ENGINE THROUGH THE BELL HOUSING .THERE ARE TWO 15 MILIMETER BOLTS THAT HOLDS THE STARTER ON . AFTER BREAKING THE BOLTS A 15MM WRENCH WOULD BE USEFUL.

SOURCE: 2000 Dodge Caravan air conditioner problems

heating and cooling fans are generally one and the same. changing freon doesn't always fix the problem... did you have the system pressure checked for leaks first.

Second determine if the vents are opening properly (switching from heat to cooling) basically when you change to cool it closes air access to the heater core.

SOURCE: air conditioner in 2000 Dodge Caravan Needs to be Replaced

Cost of repair will depend on which component of the AC system needs repair/replacement. There are several components to the system, with each component costing different amounts and each requiring different amounts of labor to repair or replace.
But, how do you know there is no refrigerant left in the system? Have you had the system charged recently and it leaked out?

Serpentine belt keeps walking off 94 dodge caravan 3.0


for a belt to run off the pulleys , one of the pulleys will not be mounted parallel to all the other pulleys
check alternator pulley for alignment, power steering for alignment and tensioner pulleys for alignment
place a long straight edge across the faces of the pulleys to another pulley and see if it touches both side of the pulleys
check the idler pulley for failing bearings that will not allow that pulley to run in line under tension

How to replace the belt on 2000 dodge caravan


I had to replace the brushes on my 2000 Caravan alternator so I had to remove the serpentine belt. I was able to remove the belt by prying the idler pulley inwards to take of the pressure and slip it off so I think you should be able to do the same thing.

Clicking sound near Idler pully


The bearing in the pulley is a single row ball bearing so you can expect a slight side movement in the pulley. Check the drive belt for cracks. Ensure that the belt is running at the top of the pulley and not down in the groove. Lastly if there is no other obvious problems then change the drive belt

Why would the belt to my van keep shredding or popping off


check all of your pulleys (a/c, idler pulley, water pump, etc...), make sure they all turn by hand and don't seem loose. sounds like you might have one locked up or sticking really badly.

How do I tighten the A/C belt on a 2000 Dodge grand caravan?


There's a spring loaded Idler pulley that keeps tension on the belt. If the arm that puts the tension on the belt seizes it may not be putting enough tension on the belt. It will need to be replaced.
