Before you spend a dollar I suggest that you have the fault codes read
That way the shop cannot charge you for what is not necessary to fix.

SOURCE: failed emmisions test..

I am in Virginia but I believe you vehicle is showing a monitors not ready for Catalyst & Evap. If that is correct you need to basically drive the car a few days. The computer will remonitor itself and should be fine following that. Most drive cycles require highway driving & city driving. Make sure you turn on a/c as well. Its not how many miles you drive but what conditions you drive that sets you monitors. You could locate the drive cycle and attempt to replicate it but its usually very difficult drive exactly as the cycle asks. Good luck.

SOURCE: PCV valve failed visual inspection during smog

remove the hose to the PCV and It simply pulls out and a new one is pushed in and hose is inserted back on. It's kind of like a cork. I can not believe they check for visual inspection. Here in SC, we don't have inspections. But anyways, GOOD LUCK

Replace fuel filter in 1999 dodge intrepid


The Fuel filter is part of the fuel pump module and is designed to be changed when the fuel pump dies. You can replace the filter separately but you will have to drop the fuel tank.

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.

Fuel issues?


since changing the pump makes a difference even for a short time, I believe you are on the right track with that. What you need to do is determine why after changing the pump the problem re-appears. What you need to do is check the fuel pressure at the throttle body, comparing "new" pressure to pressure from a non-working pump. You also need to check voltage at the pump to see if it changes. It may help to put an additional ground wire spliced into the existing one back at the pump harness...a poor ground will cause the pump to overheat and fail. I assume that when you changed the pump you completely drained the tank and cleaned it out so there is no issue there? Changing the pump will not change the operation of engine controls so I don't see a connection there. Pressure regulator may be an issue, but most fail to the "rich" side and you would know that right away...changing the pump would actually make that worse, not better. So, that leaves testing to find out the why of it.
