''2000 dodge grand caravan oil leak at crankcase how do i fix it''

I bought this van about couple months ago, I had it oil change in one of the dealership so they can do the 15 point inspection. They found a leak at the power steering box. This would cost me $850.00 cad, which I told them I don't have money to spend that much. To have a peace of mind, I brought it to another dealership and have it inspected, but they told me that there was a leak at the oil pan, crankcase and somewhere behind the engine. And they were asking me $1300.00 to have it fix. I was confused because two different dealership mechanics with two different findings. Pls help me, how will I fix the leak at crankcase.

How bad does it leak? Most cars eventually leak some. Adding oil now and then is cheaper than fixing a leak if its not too bad.

2008 Grand Caravan. Just bought 2 new fobs. Having exactly same problem as with the old ones. New batteries only last couple of days. Something with van? Old ones worked real good until about 3 month

Dont go to the dealer just yet. Some of these key fob batteries are charged while you are driving your vehicle with the key in the ignition. I recommend you change the batteries one more time, this time around disassemble the key as best you can without damaging it and clean it very well. Pay special attention to any metal contacts and be sure to slide out the valet key (if applicable) and clean it very well also. Di-electric grease will ensure good continuity on metal contacts internal to the key. It seems as though your problem is internal to the key. It also seems like this should be a relatively quick fix. Also, The tipm and ecu are known to fail on this vehicle, just throwing that out there if you have issues down the road. I hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist any further.

2000 Grand Caravan. leaking power steering fluid a qt per day. Is this the rack leaking or would it be a line? What about the gaskets on the rack. Is this something I can do on my own.

The rack can leak i've done a few but is not common, the most common is the return line which is used as a cooler line also, this line is under the van the best thing to do is to clean oil leak and dry then start and watch for the leak inorder to pinpoint,hope this helps.

I just bought a 96 dodge caravan 2 days ago ive drove 150 miles today and when i went to shut it off it had smoke i raised the hood its coming almost directly from the front of the van i went to leave...

How low was the oil? It could be something as simple as some oil is leaking out of the valve covers and once it hits the exhaust manifold then it starts smoking. Usually smoke coming from the engine compartment is a result of that. Look and see if it leaks any oil while you have it parked in pavement for a while in case it has something to do with the oil change.

Good Luck
