Question about 1996 Dodge Caravan

2 Answers

I have a 6 cylinder 1996 Doge Caravan that when it heats up the engine will stall. I had the fuel pump changed and it is brand new - the check engine light is now on. I hear that it may be a sensor - any idea where to start?

My 96 Grand Caravan SE does the same thing. The 3.0 engine is notorious for having the rings burn out at around 100,000 miles leaving you with heavy and consistant oil burning. The low oil pressure switch may actually be trying to stall the engine to protect it at idle speeds due to the low oil pressure from the internal leakage and blow-by. Just a thought.

What engine code(s) are you getiing? Try cycling key to, on ,off, on, off, on & leave on. (not start)
now count flashes from check engine light. will be flashes, pause ,flashes for 2 digit #'s. For example: 2 flashes , pause, 2 more is code 22.
3 flashes,pause, 3 more, is code 33. Write them down & get back to us. By the way when you get 55, thats end of message.

1996 doge caravan delphi pump. Well i direct feed the pump and no presure out of the new filter. I really think the pump is defective. This will be the third time changing it. All new pumps. In the morning...


If the pump is not making a noise, check your electrical connections on the pump.
If the pump does make the normal sound to prime the system, you can check to see if the fuel lines are clogged before the filter. (This sounds similar to the step you are performing.)
There is a relay that supplies power to the pump. It can usually be interchanged with another relay on the engine bay fuse panel (in most cars that I have owned). That could be the issue.

Van quit unexpectedly while driving it- it appears it is spark or electrical-changed ignigition coil- not it- is there a safety shutoff ???? any ideas?????????


No shut offs, these are none for fuel pumps,depending on the engine it may be a bad timing belt, the belt may have poped or jumped, start by checking the fuel preasure,if there preasure about 50-60 psi them the next step would be the belt, a compression test on the cylinder should tell you or removing the cover and checking the timing marks. i would say its one of the two a fuelpump or the timing belt, i checked and the 96 caravan does have a timing belt in the 4 and 6 cylinder engines. hope this helps.

2003 doge caravan heat goes on but as i drive


Your thermostat is probably stuck open causing the engine to run cool. One way to check it is to open your radiator when it is cold. Start the vehicle and see if the water is rushing around inside the radiator. If it is you know the thermostat is open. Replace that and you should have plenty of heat.

Engine stalls when slowing down


I'm had a similar problem with my Caravan this past October. Ask your mechanic to check the fuel pump and oxygen sensor. There was a recall on Airtex fuel pumps in 24,000 2000 Caravans in 2006, so might want to see if it was one of the affected pumps and it can be replaced for free. Good luck!
