Question about 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan
I have a '98 3.3L Chrysler Grand Voyager (as known in South Africa). Looks like what you guys call a Dodge Grand Caravan. The vehicle runs fine for about half an hour then when you accelorate, the revs drop. Shortly after this the engine cuts out and it won't start up again. Engine oil temp is fine. Starter swings very strong but it's as if there's no fuel coming thru. Don't smell any fuel no matter how many times you try to start the vehicle. Was told it might be a relay switch or the fuel pump. When I check the fuse box, it's very hot (included fuses/relays). After being towed home the car starts first time. Cooled down? Agents here in SA say they can only problem solve when the problem manifests itself. Their diagnostic machines are not picking up any error. Please help!!!
When it quits & won't restart, If you pull air intake hose of at throttle body & spray 2 or 3 seconds of WD-40 (like quick start) inside the throttle body with plate pushed open, then try to start & if it kicks over or fires up for a second or 2 then dies, you'll know it's a fuel related problem, then you can take a good look at rest of fuel system for problems like relay or pump.
