Engine hesitates when in drive


Not knowing what kind of at it is makes it hard, but from the sounds you have a coil that's just starting to go bad, or sparks plugs need to be replaced

I have a 1996 Chrysler 3.8. town and country mini van


The oil pressure light probably came on when the engine stopped.
You would have lost your power accessories then too.
Someone will need to figure out if you have lost fuel to the injectors and/or spark to the plugs to know where to look for the problem.

I have a 2000 Mercury Villager Mini Van Sport. When I am in park I can rev the engine with no problens, when I put it in gear & push on the gas it spits & sputters & can't hardly get any...


have the fuel pressure checked if it is ok then you most likely have a bad cam or crank sensor.. is the check engine light on? that will help to pinpoint the issue. if no check engine light then most likely its a fuel pump.

My 2004 Chrysler T&C's heater works great when I first turn it on in the morning, while driving to work it turns to only cold air. What could be causing this issue?


That's weird - it seems like the thermostat is open when you start the mini-van (its supposed to be closed at engine start-up), and then the thermostat closes as the warms up (its supposed to open).
If you can replace thermostat, that may be the thing to do, since these thermostats often cost less than $10. Once the T&C has a new thermostat, see if the heater behavior improves, if so, discard the old thermostat.

Also, if your thermostat is actually behaving the OPPOSITE of a normal thermostat, then you're at
risk of burning up (overheating) your engine - on any trip longer than the commute to work. An engine at operating temperature needs to circulate coolant to/from the radiator (and/or heater core) to avoid overheating. So thermostat replacement may save your entire engine. In the meantime, your T&C will avoid self-destruction only if driven REALLY short distances.

Van is sputtering when in gear; reverse or drive


It could be dirty injector but my money is on a bad throttle position sensor. I have had to replace one on every dodge car/ van i every had, around 90-100k miles. about 55 dollars, most people could do this them self.

I have a 2001 dodge stratus which will hesitate when put in drive and the check engine light is on


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you need to diagnosed and repaired it. The list of possible codes number in the hundreds. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, or what engine parameter is out of normal range. You or a technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint which sensor or part is not working correctly that caused the hesitation and the check engine light to come on.

Engine Stall/Stumble after filling the gas tank


POSSIBLY. BUT MORE LIKELY TO BE A VAC LEAC TO THE EVAPROTIVE SYSTEM. CHECK ALL OF THE VENT TUBE UNDER THE VEHICLE, EXPECIALLY AT THE CHARCOAL CANISTER. REPLACE ANY BROKEN LINES AND THEN TRY AGAIN.
