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.

Van skips and runs ruff but only after it warms up i was told could be coil ,or cam sensor or crank sensor but would look to me to do this when cold . van runs perfect when cold only starts having problem...

It sounds like like the ect sensor(eng.coolent temp)
not sending a signal to to the pcm that the engine is
warm. And the engine will stay in cold start mode.
Check the connections at the ect sensor, it's on top
of the engine on the intake manifold. Also have an obdII scan done to see if that sensor or any others
shows a code. You can stop by any autozone/napa
or advance auto parts they will scan it for free.
Hope this helps.

You always need to check the wiring system when you get a code and not just throw parts at it,I'm sorry this happened to you.

Dodge Grand Caravan 2005 P0016 code

Im assuming it is an engine that uses a timing belt. It sounds like the belt has jumped 1 tooth. if it only jumped 1 tooth than the computer will compesate the timing so it is possible the sensors will say they are ok. If it is a motor that uses a chain than it problaly needs a new gear/chain set.
