SOURCE: Where is the drain valve on 2002 dodge caravan radiator?


 
 
Cooling System
Draining & Filling
To Drain:

WARNING
To avoid serious injury, allow the engine to cool before opening any part of the cooling system. The coolant is under pressure and may boil if the pressure is released while the coolant is hot.
Allow the engine cooling system to cool and open the drain at the lower left side of the radiator before removing the pressure cap. This will drain the coolant from the reservoir.
After the coolant reserve container is empty, remove the pressure cap.
Remove the cylinder block drain plug(s).
To Fill:
Remove the radiator pressure cap and fill system with a 50/50 mix of good quality 5 Year/100,000 mile engine coolant and distilled water.
Continue filling radiator until full and install the cap.
Fill the coolant reservoir container to the MAX mark with the same coolant mixture.
Allow the engine to come to normal operation temperature and cool down completely and recheck the coolant level. Add coolant to between the MAX and MIN mark.

SOURCE: Heater blower motor replacement -1997 Dodge Grand Caravan

Remove the cover plate on the passenger side of the heater box, 3-4 screws.
Unplug the motor assembly, remove 3-4 more screws that hold the motor in place and pull it down from its position. Get an aftermarket motor and installed it in the original housing with the original squirrel cage.
Installation is the reverse of removal.

1997 Dodge Caravan Sport. I was driving normal then it quit pulling. Now have 3 forward gears no more than 8 miles an hour. No reverse. Dropped trans pan small metal on magnet.Fluid looked ok. Changed...


The correct fluid to put in a 1997 van is (ATF-3). Sounds like you need to make adjustment on both the forward and reverse bands of the transmission to correct your problem. The kickdown band (front) forward is located at the top (outside) of the transaxle near the front. To adjust the band,loosen the lock nut approximately 5 turns. With the lock nut loose the adjusting screw should turn freely in case. Tighten the adjustment screw with an inch lb. torque wrench to 72 in-lbs. Then back the screw out 2 1/4 turns, hold the screw in place and tighten the lock nut to 35 ft-lbs. Then after removeing the transmission pan and filter the low-reverse band is located next to the valve body. Loosen the lock nut 5 turns so the adjustment screw is free. Turn the adjustment screw in to 41 in-lbs, then back the screw out 3 1/2 turns. Hold the adjustment screw and tighten the lock nut 10 ft-lbs. Install transmission pan/with gasket and refill transaxle to proper level. Test drive van. Be safe and block the rear wheels before you raise the van and try to work under it. Hope this will help you.

1997 dodge grand caravan a/c


What are the readings on your A/C service gauges, hi and low sides? If you don't have service gauges, inexpensive ones can be purchased at stores like: Harbor Freight, Walmart, Pep Boys, etc. The gauge readings are the first step to a correct diagnosis.

Your system may be low on refrigerant. If you also have a rear heating unit, the air mixing door or water valve may not be shutting off. Your expansion valve may be bad in the rear unit.

If you can access your rear a/c, check to see if the inlet hose is hot or cold. If it is cold, you are low on refrigerant. If it is hot and the tube coming out of the expansion valve/orifice is cold, this is the way it is supposed to be. If the tube on the outlet of the evaporator is not cold, then you are low on refrigerant or the expansion valve/orifice may be bad.
