Mcdevito75 here, Sounds like either a bad relay or a bad connection at the relay plug, wiggle the connector wires at the relay se if it helps, if so have your shop rig another plug, if not buy a new relay.

I changed the fuel pump but the van still won't


And you know the fuel filter is good? Could be injector problem: just as a check, spray some starting fluid into the intake and see if engine runs a few seconds. If it does, it is a fuel problem. Check injector fuse, as a start. Check fuel pressure. Check injector circuit. If engine won't start with starting fluid, check if you are getting spark. Problem may be in the ignition system.

check your vans computer for codes. grab a pencil and paper. insert ignition key.

do the following; off-on, off-on, off-on. codes will flash out on the check engine light in pairs of numbers, 5-5 being the end of the test. write those numbers down and report back so that we may have a better idea of your vans problem

Any chance you are out of gas?

1998 Dodge Caravan. engine dies and wont start. fuel pump was changed twice but i get a few miles & dies again & wont start. im thinkin fuel filter is plugged....


It might be your fuel filter. Also, Dodge and Chrysler is bad for fuel pump failures. A clogged fuel filter can cause this. Also, you might not be getting enough fuel pressure. There should be a test port on the van, where you can test the gas pressure. You also have a fuel pump relay or switch. This could be bad as well. Hope this helps you.

2006 3.8 dodge grand caravan is not getting gas. fuel pump and egr valve have been replaced. after the fuel pump was replaced it worked for 4 days until i was sitting on an upgrade (hill) at a stop light...


You have a fuel pump relay that sends power to the fuel pump. Do you hear the fuel pump turn on when you start the van? If not then check the relay. sometimes you can have someone tap the top of the relay while the key is being turned. If it starts then change the relay. about 10$ from rockauto.com.

1996 caravan runs but after awhile stalls.then starts but dont


If the check engine or service engine soon light comes on when this happens then pull the codes and check to see what part may need to be replaced.

If the light does not come on it may be temperature related, meaning vapor lock when it is hot the fuel in the lines turns to vapor and stops fuel from flowing to the injectors, without a code it's difficult to diagnose over the net.

Or an intermittent problem with fuel flow, I know these vans HAD RECALLS due to the fuel filter, pump, go to your local dealer take your vin number with you and they will run a check on their computer for you which will show what recalls were or were not done on your van this may solve the issue.

Hope this helps.

No service engine soon light when I try to get trouble codes


It comes on when the key is turned on to show it works, then it goes out as soon as the engine is started, it has a fuse, that will be marked, if the fuse is ok then you may have either a bad connection at the cluster connector or a bad ECM
