There are very few engines that are non interference ( from my data books regarding timing belts and chains) that you will have an interference engine. It relates to the fact that the valves will interfere (hit) with the pistons in the event of belt/chain failure

SOURCE: 96 Dodge Caravan hv,ac motor only runs on high.

If you underneath the dashboard, behind the glove box, the a/c blower motor should be there inside a black case..turn the a/c on and off, and you should find out its exact location.. Now once you do that, the blower resistor should have a plug and two small screws on each side of it.. It should be close to the blower motor, if not on the side, maybe a little up and to the left of it...Goodluck...

Testimonial: "Thank you for the quick reply. I looked all over that area before as it would make sense for the resistor pak to be mounted there. I'll try again."

According to Dodge it is non-interference. Did you loose your timing belt and wonder whether the valves are bent ?

SOURCE: does my 2003 dodge caravan have an interference engine

Not sure but if doing belt yourself I will give you important tips. 1) before removeing T/Belt set engine to TDC nr 1 there should be marks on the crank and cam (s) gears that line up with a mark on the block / head. 2) prior to removeing tension to belt get liquid paper & mark cam gear(s) & crank gear to point on block / head. 3) mark T/Belt to cam(s), crank, balance shaft if fitted. 4) release tension & remove belt. 5) transcribe marks from old belt to new belt & make sure correct amount of teeth. 6) fit new belt so YOUR marks line up. 7) have tensioner suply presure to belt. 8) turn motor twice by hand to make sure pistons no hit valves 9) Make sure YOUR marks line up if YOUR marks line up it has to be right. 10) Very IMPORTANT if spring tensioner lossen locking bolt again to take up extra slack in belt. 11) tighten locking bolt. 12) put back together.

I got a 05 caravan and the timing belt broke was wondering if it is a interference motor


It is not an interference engine but you may want to check and see if the tensioner has been updated. Most of these engines (if it's the 2.4l) lost the timing belt due to bad tensioners. The 3.0l V6 is non interference as well.

Could be many things. Check the fuse and relay under the hood, if you can hear the wiper motor running but the wipers arent working then they are off the track. and finally in non of those are it then replace the wiper motor.

The 3.0 liter is a Mitsubishi design and is not a free wheeling engine or a non interference design, this does not mean the valves are bent, install the belt and then check for bent valves.
