Location of fuel pressure regulator on 2006 dodge caravan 3.3


Replace fuel pump and filter that is not a regulator problem.
Bad fuel regulator will cause vehicle to surge at cruise speed or they leak and cause engine to suck excessive fuel into intake if vacuum control then blows black smoke.

Dodge caravan 2001 blowing burning power steering fluid.


I can answer some of your questions without being there in person.
The smell inside the van is from fresh air entering the venting system. Not sure why you don't get it from all vents. The fresh air intake is in front of the windshield and will pick up any smells from the engine compartment.
Loosing the serpentine belt would not necessarily cause you to loose ps fluid, but having a leak could drain the pump and damage the bearings in the pump, causing the pump pulley to drag on the belt.
The ps pump could be in the final stage of failing.
And the shaft seal in the pump could be leaking fluid onto the engine and exhaust.

If you smell gas inside of the caravan, then something is wrong other than a tune up. You need to have the gas tank, gas vapor recirculation, gas lines, in-line filter, and gas filler tube examined. It could be linking in any one of these places.

Gas smell, and fumes inside


I had this same problem on the same year van. You more than likely have a clogged fuel filter. The fuel filter is very easy to replace and very inexpensive. If you do not replace it eventually pressure will build up and burst the rubber lines connecting the fuel filter to the lines. I learned about this the hard way and dumped a half gallon of gas on the way to work. Also with these vans it is very important to make sure the PCV valve is functioning properly. You can purchase a new one for less than 5.00 and can be changed easily.

My car is smelling like gas.


From where? you haven't given enough info, but put a large piece of flattened cardboard under the car to see if any is leaking. You will then be able to see what general area it's coming from--if there is a leak.

It could be a fuel injector(s) or even something very simple. When is the last time you had a tune-up, including a new fuel filter? If it's been more than two years, it's overdue. That means new oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, and spark plugs.If your car has a distributor, you should also replace the distributor cap and rotor (cap).

Try to locate a specific area where the smell is coming from. Breathing gas fumes is not healthy!

My 91 dodge 318 4x4 starts but falls on face when in gear most of the time but revs fine in park and n most of the time acts like fuel is cut off but when i watch the injectors gets fuel


check for rusted leaking fuel lines in back near fuel tank , clogged fuel filter, low pressure in fuel pump check with gage , check air filter , loose plug wires , bad plugs and wires , timming, cap rotor, bad gas from the botton of the tank, see if you can get a code out of it that would help alot

It should have an in line fuel filter, it will be located on the inside of the frame rail same side as the tank. Also it might have a hairline crack in the distributor cap witch lets moister get inside it and that will make it hard to start when its raining.
