Tire that was flat was on pass side front? Have you tried to drive it? When jacked up to change wheel, it won't turn if the other is on the ground. Hope it's that simple. If not, I'll try to help further.

    Is it possible someone switched the spare with one that doesn't fit properly at some point? Is it making contact with the brake caliper or rotor?

Hello, I just purchased a used 97 Dodge Caravan Se and when I was driving it down the road it started to shake and make a grinding noise in the front end. Does anyone have an idea of what this could be?...


Sounds like your front passenger's side wheel bearing might be going bad. It could also be the cv axle is going bad. Have it looked at before it gets worse and possibly seizes up on you.

My 98 van bounces when im going 25 to 55 and i dont know y. checked tires struts and berrings.


well, how did you check struts. removed them and did a compression stroke test? Front or rear? both? suspension controls ride stability, shocks,struts,springs, bushings,wheel balance. even if parts look good doesnt mean they are. bounce trk from the outside. does it keep bouncing for a few or does it bounce 3 times or less depending on how hard you jumped on the bumper. Im sure you need new struts or shocks if it is bouncy.

Warranty should be taking care of this problem, but look for missing or damaged rubber parts in the 'anti-roll-bar' mechanism and the rear shock absorber ends. It would help to identify which end of the car it is coming from. Make sure the sliding doors fit tightly. Try 'bouncing' the van at each corner to help identify the noise. The front struts could have an internal problem. Try shaking the front and rear wheels when on the hoist. Hope this helps!

What causes the van to shimmy or vibrate when driving?


If it's a tire issue, busted belt in the tire or bad tires.

Front end needs an alignment.

Strut is going bad.

Bent rod.

Bad cv joint...bearing.....

There a few things that could cause this.

Clicking, sticking sound from front end, drivers side


It is your cv joint that is bad. If you jack the van up on that side, check to see if the boot is ripped...and more than likely your cv joint is about shot...even if the boot is intact.

The cv joint is bad....

Van shakes while driving


I've had several of these vans with this problem, check the transaxle for low fluid. Each of mine would start shaking when the fluid was low.
