Question about 2002 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

Rough idle, stalling, cruise control out

I own a 2002 Dodge Caravan EC with 97,000 miles. It will stall at stoplights but start right back up again. The idle is rough and it will rev up and down in park. Also, it feels like the torque converter is going in and out at 55 mph and recently, the cruise control went out. Thanks.

    Turns out you were half right. I had a vacuum leak that solved the cruise control. The rest was fixed by a new TPS (throttle position sensor). Thanks!

Sounds like you have a vacuam leak.
Check the vacuom hose to the cruise canister........and work yuor way back to the source. I'll bet you find a hose off. Also, listen for any "hissing" sounds (obviously, not the carb).
Bet that solves ALL your probs.

Rough idle on 2002 Dodge Neon


Without trouble codes you are fishing in the dark. If the engine has a cylinder that is dead at idle from a fuel injector or ignition problem, it should have a code for a miss on that cylinder. A mechanical problem like a burned valve could cause the problem without setting a code. Have you checked compression on all 4 cylinders ? ?

Our 1995 Dodge caravan starts fine dies.


Do the following

Here are the most common causes of idle surge, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

1998 Lincoln Mark VIII sometimes stalls when idling in gear


Do you have a "Check Engine" light?

Check the coils in each cylinder. At 140k the valve cover gaskets tend to break and oil will fill the coils causing misfires and stalling.

1990 caravan with 3.0 engine starts and dies suddenly. may or may not start back up can be driving down the road and it will die, again may or may not start right back up. no codes showing.


The idle air control is not operating correctly, on top of the intake you should see a hose nipple with a black plug, pull it off start the car it will then idle and put it back on, If it suddenly stalls, you will need to clean the throttle body and idle air control.and youll be back on the road in no time

The van stalls without notice at times when ready


This sounds like a classic case of either a dirty/faulty IAC (Idle Air Control) motor or a sticking EGR valve. If you can prevent it from stalling by keeping your fot on the gas slightly and it always restarts right away and runs good when restarted, I'd suspect the IAC first. If it "chugs"when stopping and will run rough even with a little (not a lot) of gas pedal and/or it runs rough when restarted, I'd suspect the EGR.

2003 Caravan Idle/Stall


Sounds like to me your throttle positioning sensor is not set right. Try adjusting it or maybe a friend or take to a local mechanic.
