Question about 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

Engine cuts out

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.

How to change the freeze plugs in a 2001 Chrysler Grand Voyager 3.3l (aka Town And Country) - can this be done without taking the engine out ?


this can be done without engine removal. you will need a frost plug install tool with a movable head to get the angle to knock in the frost plug your installing. the procedure is the same weather its a grand or just a regular caravan.

I need a passenger side rear window for my 1988 dodge caravan, what all years of vehicle can use to replace it with?


First, Dodge Caravan,Plymouth Voyager, and Chrysler Town And Country are all the same basic minivan. Next, passenger and driver side windows are the same. They simply 'flip over' from one side to the other.
You need to be sure if you have a Grand "xyz" or not. Grand models are longer, and use a longer rear window. Middle windows are the same length either way.
I know that 1984 through 1992 windows are interchangable as long as you match Grand to Grand, and non-grand to non-grand. I think you can use up through 1995, in 1996 they redesigned and the shape is a little different.
Oh, and try to get the factory tinted rear windows if you can, they will help keeping cool in the summer (the middle ones help a LOT if they are tinted)
