Question about Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

Odometer jumping Have close to 200,000 on a 92 Dodge Caravan. Recently, the odometer jumped by 100 miles. Is this a fluke, or is it possible this is going to happen again? Gas gauge broken, so using the mileage to measure gas consumption. Thx!

Ho, that doesn't bode well for your tank monitoring. It was a fluke, but may keep doing it, if the odometer is a mechanical meter with numbers turning from the speedometer cable by plastic gearing that wears. Watch for it to jump at the next 100 mile turn over.
I understand your reluctance to change out the fuel level sender in the tank if that is why the gauge doesn't work. It is a lot of work. But have you checked to see if it's the dash gauge or the sender unit? A couple of electrical tests could determine that. If it is the dash gauge, that is comparatively easy to replace, and you could buy a used one-they seldom go bad. Otherwise, keep tracking your miles.

I had the same issue with my dodge caravan and after several attempts by the dealer to fix it, it turned out to be a broken wire. They replaced the relay and it would work for a while and then go blank again. Have the wires checked thoroughly.

SOURCE: Ford Probe Engine jumps down to 0RPM while driving

The tach suddenly falling to zero while driving is a classic symptom of the notorious distributor failure in the 1993-94 Probe GTs. There is a part in the distributor called the ignitor that is failing because they were not made to withstand the high heat conditions of the Probe GT engine compartment. Unfortunately, Ford does not sell ignitors and they charge an insane price for a new distributor.

The easiest solution is to buy a replacement disty. The problem is that many of the rebuilt distys sold by auto parts stores also have ignitors that will soon fail. There is an outfit with an eBay store called the Distributor King that sells replacement distys with upgraded ignitors. The distys they sell are manufactured by Richporter Technology and the model that works on a '93 PGT is number MZ25 ( thats the manufacturer's number, not Distributor King's). You might try checking the price on eBay then google the part number and see if you can find it at a better price elsewhere. There are also other vendors on eBay that say they sell the same identical disty for less than Distributor King. You could email them and ask who makes their distys.

If you are handy and have some time on your hands there is a way to jury rig a replacement for the ignitor for about $20. There is a detailed discussion of that here.

You have a fuel gauge sending unit problem, the gauge is not the problem, the sending unit is in the gas tank, u must remove the gas tank to replace it.

Yes,you can buy an A/C compressor mount system.

Go to the link HERE and punch in the engine size to get the correct A/C bypass.

If the odometer reading is OVER 90,000 miles you should order a BELT TENSIONER also.

BCM Unit in 1996 Dodge Grand Caravan


The BCM Unit had to re-learn the systems when I put another unit in. The Windshield wipers use to come on whenever they wanted to without touching the button and the air conditioning stopped working all together, but now it works like new. Everything works perfectly but the only draw back is that the odometer jumped from 94,521 miles to 120,000 miles when I installed the new BCM Unit. I know that the miles were lower but I am happy that the van is running great and everything works just as they are suppose to. I believe that the air conditioner unit did not get the right signal from the BCM and so the motor started to smoke. I ran the engine for 10 minutes and it went away. Thanks again for the advice and have a blessed day. TED
