Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

Engine sputters during accelleration

My 2000 caravan is spuddering when your try to accelerate or maintain speed going up hill. It has no trouble idling or when you rev the engine in park. It has done it a few times this last winter but had gotten better. to resovle it this winter I would just turn the van off and back on. It seemed like it reset a sensor or something. Now it is back worse than ever. The fuel filter was repaced last fall. The fuel pump replace a little over a year ago. The car currently has 207,000 miles and I am hoping to fix it rather cheeply. Anyone have any Ideas?

I have a Toyota Corolla 1,6 year 1984. Well maintained, services up to date. Will it be detrimental to engine if I drive steep hills with the car? I have to climb a steep hill to reach work.


No
not if you drive it accordingly
steep hills are best negotiated in low fears with plenty of rpm applied
for example on a steep grade with a manual 1st or 2nd or possibly 3rd and the rpm around 2000 constant will cause it no harm
automatics will go to first automatically so keep the rpm at that mark
engine damage is experienced when the gear selected is too high and the engine is placed under extreme load so down shift to allow the engine to work easily
When going down hill select first and only use the brakes to maintain the 2000 rpm range and allow the engine compression to hold the car speed back
the rule of thumb for experienced drivers is this
you select the same gear to go down that it took to come up

How do i find out what is causing such a lack of power when going up hill,its so bad that down shifting is the only way to maintain road speed...?


Have you replaced the fuel filter . A clogged fuel filter can cause fuel filter can cause poor power problems . Try to accelerate quickly and see it the engine cuts out as it is running out of gas . If it does change the filter . Hope this corrects the problem

2000 passat v6; check engine light+spuddering when accelerating


good chance with that problem you were close most likely a misfire will cause that. it would be either your spark plugs or coil pack. also make sure your vacuum lines are good and air filter is good. also bad gas can cause that problem. the worst outcome would be your throttle body going out on you.

Van leaps and stalls when parked. Fuel filter?


Then you might want to idle the low idle speed up a half a turm to see if that sovles the problem.
