    If the pump installer is reliable, Have that person or someone change your fuel filter. One would think it would have been change at time pump was, can't assume though. The new filters of today are very efficient and if the tank was taken down ,any slooshing would agitate any sediments.If it was changed, I would expect it would last nore than 90 daysm but of course what and how much it has filtered. The vehicle is 19 years old makes a difference. Have your idle checked, it should be around 5-600 rpms. Too low will stal the engine when put in gearm but the dying when driving implies either furl or electrical. immediate successfull start up points at fuel starvation. Good Luck- Filter first, Idle speed second.

Problems with fuel pump (been replaced 3 times and the problem is not fixed!) on Dodge Caravan.


May be the problem is not the fuel pump but the regulator valve in the fuel manifold. Has a manifold pressure and pump pressure test been done . One has to be careful with caravans as by nature they sit for long times without use and it is a tendancy to leave the fuel tank with a limited amount of fuel in it with related problems.

How do i change fuel filter


2002 Dodge Caravan

Fuel Filter Replacement Procedure

1. The fuel filter is located on top of the fuel tank near the fuel pump module. Fuel lines are permanently attached to filter assembly and must be replaced with the fuel filter.

2. Release pressure from fuel system by removing the fuel pump relay and start the engine and let it die. Crank the engine a couple times after it dies to relieve more of the fuel pressure

3. Disconnect negative battery cable

4. Raise and support vehicle

5. Support fuel tank with transmission jack or floor jack with large plywood board to evenly distribute the weight of the fuel tank. NOTE: It is important to distribute weight evenly to prevent damage to the fuel pump module.

6. Disconnect ground strap from fuel tank

7. Remove inboard fuel tank straps and front "T" strap fastener

8. Lower the fuel tank approximately 6 inches to access the fuel filter assembly.

9. Disconnect the fuel lines at the fuel supply connector and the fuel pump module

10. Remove the retaining bolt and remove filter assembly from vehicle.

11. Reverse removal procedure to install (Don't forget to put the fuel pump relay back )

94 dodge caravan... fuel ran low turned off engine, won,t restart


did your vehichle completely run out of gas , if so after adding gas , it will take a short while for pump to pump gas to engine, also if you have a owners manual, look in it and look under fuel, to see if it show s a fuel reset button, if so, you will have to push the reset button to reactivate the fuel pump. sometimes , they are loacated at the right or left rear in side, or under the the right side of instrument panel.

1993 dodge caravan 3.3 v6 on days when outside temps are higher than 70 degrees after driving for a while if rpm's get below say 1200 car will stall out and after 20 mins. it will restart but will stall...


What does it do, if you try to accelerate when this starts to happen? If it dies,sputters or is sluggish, I'd start by changing fuel filter, and if that doesn't help, have fuel pressure tested when (if at all possible) this begins to happen. Had similar problem, winter was fine, hot weather it would die, and restart after 20 minutes or so, then go a fair distance again, then same thing. Fuel pump was on it's way out and when it got hot, fuel pressure would drop. First thing in the morning when fuel in tank and pump was cool, ran like a charm, but on way home from work, after sitting on a hot day, fuel got warm/hot, and pump heated up and that's when it started. Carried a fuel pressure gauge with me. Fuel pressure when cool, was 49 psi, and when it got hot, eventually dropped off to 2 psi. Sat for 20 minutes, jumped back up to 49psi, took off for home,then would eventually get lower and die again. Changed pump and filter, all was well. Try filter first, you have nothing to lose, and it should be changed if pump replaced later anyway.

1994 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.0 V6 Runs fine for about 10 min after that engine bogs down like it is not getting gas. I have replaced the fuel filter, map sencor, and fuel pressure regulator as was suggested...


Have you put a pressure gauge on and then drive to see if pressure drops. If it does it is likely the pump. Sometimes these problems lead to it being the computer.
