Chrysler has a service bulliten on this issue, you replace the comp, drier, lines and hoses, and requries a new expansion valve ,blockage from drier decant materal, and flush the system, this is available in a service kit, wich is fairly reasonable in price, about $700.00 Cnd. I have done alot of these repairs on 2003-2006 models mini vans. any vehicle is worth the price for ac. GOOD LUCK RDJRP

I have a 2005 dodge grand caravan. My heater doesn't work (freezing air)it's over heating when I tack it up (going up a hill) and now it knocks when I push the gas and just cuts off. I let it cool down for...

You may have a stuck closed thermostat which get's worse when the car overheats. All the symptoms you describe indicate this.
Buy a new thermostat and replace the old one. Do not continue to drive the car for any distance other than a distance that prevents the knocking.

Locate the thermostat by following the top radiator hose to were it attaches to the block. The stat is located under the flanged piece that the hose is connected to.

Where is the 2005 dodge caravan cabin air filter

On the 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan the interior AC filter is located under the dash on the passenger side. You need to slide the cover forward and then pull down. The filter is longer than the distance between the floor and the unit, but it bends. Ensure when you replace it you only bend the amount you need to install or you could damage the filter and to seal between the housing and the filter.

Replacing outter tie rods 2005 grand dodge caravan

Replacing steering components is not that easy, and you have to take it somewhere for an alignment afterwards anyway, and if the shop did not do the work they are going to charge you a lot for the alignment. I'd take it somewhere and let them fix it for you.

I wouldn't take a long trip with bad steering components. If something broke, the best outcome is you'd be stranded, but the worst could be you lose control and crash. Paying somebody to fix it would seem really cheap compared to that!
