This sounds much like a fuel delivery problem. You are good to notice the humming of the fuel pump that was not usually present. You may try checking/changing the fuel filter. If the pump is going out it will work better when the tank is full. These can be difficult to change when inside the tank or even at the tank because of accessibility. There is usually a primary fuel filter at the tank and another in the engine compartment before it goes to the carburetor, throttle body, or port injector. Get a service manual from your local parts store for your year,make, and model. They contain troubleshooting guides as well as pictures and instructions for the procedures to change filters, drop the tank, swapping pumps,ect.
Good luck to you. Thanks for letting me assist you. If you repost your problem with updates I will get an email notifying me and I can help further. Please rate me if you found this helpful.

Why is my 98 dodge caravan dying while driving?


This could be catalytic converter plugging off or fuel pump or filter issue. Especially if it runs good at low speed.

1998 dodge caravan keeps dying but starts right back up


I'd start by replacing the fuel filter, if it hasn't been replaced recently, that might be the cheapest fix, if that doesn't solve it, it sounds like a fuel pump, have the pressure coming out of it checked before dropping the fuel tank to get to it.

Dodge caravan dies when in gear


Vacuum leaks. ( hissing noise around the engine). Tune up (plugs and wires). clean the throttle body(inside of it). All these can cause rough idle. The dieing can be from transmission problems. Can you rev the van up and keep it running while in gear? Or does it die then too? You can replace the solenoid pack on the outside of the transmission for around $250, if you do it yourself. If you do this, DO NOT get any dirt in the holes of the transmission where the solenoid pack sets. Clean it well before you remove the old pack.

Something is draining the battery; alternator checks ok; new batt


if you can get the car started while it is running take the positive side of the battery cable off if it dies then it is the alternator if it does not die check the drive belt to see if it is loose or slipping
