Question about 2006 Dodge Caravan
Greetings, assuming the fuel tank was contaminated enough to cause the fuel filter to become partially obstructed, it would not be good advice to install Techron fuel treatment or any other fuel treatment after installing a new fuel filter as doing so would could very well contaminate the new filter and / or new fuel pump. The vehicle in question has an engine rev limiter while the transmission is in park or neutral so the 2600 - 3000 and sputter are normal which is the rev limiter kicking in. There is not enough information in the complaint to determine if a new fuel filter and fuel pump are justified or not. Personally, I would inspect the plus (+) power lead to the fuel pump first with a volt meter to see if you are getting at least 12.7 volts and if you are, then remove the fuel filter from the fuel tank and inspect before purchasing a new filter. I would test the fuel pump for correct pressure if I found the fuel filter to be fairly clean and correct voltage to the pump. It is not good advice to buy parts before you know what the true problem is.

Hi, this is mainly caused by an obstruction that usually resides within the fuel filter. Now, when you have a clogged fuel filter, this can put a great strain on the fuel pump as well. The best solution here is to replace the fuel filter in this vehicle and, if possible, i would replace the fuel pump as well. this is good preventive maintenance.after the fuel filter and pump replacement, I recommend adding a fuel injector cleaner/water remover. this will scrub the fuel system and remove water as well that may be stored over time in your tank.
The best additive will be Techtron fuel treatment. this is good stuff and it works.
Please rate and god bless:)
