Question about 1993 Dodge Caravan
Last week the battery on my van died. I got it jumped and immediately drove to a store and replaced it. The battery died due to some wiring problem when my engine gets wet and just cause it was old. Now in a seemingly unrelated problem, it will stall randomly at low speeds. It almost stalled pulling out into the street today and stalled on the exit ramp form the highway. It ran perfectly 'normal' on the highway.
Fluids are fine.
Try cleaning the throttle body. Buy a can of throttle body cleaner, on newer cars you shouldn't use carb cleaner. But given the age of your van the protective coating on the throttle body has probably worn off anyway so if you already have a can of carb cleaner use it. Just buy a can of silicone spray to lubricate and prevent the TB from getting getting gummed up to quickly. Also check the EGR valve as it causes a lot of stalling problems on Caravans. Vacuum test the diaphragm and remove and clean the port and EGR plunger. You should replace the fuel filter if hasn't been replaced in a while. The transmission torque converter lock up solenoid might be sticking too. Just have the computer codes scanned as the EGR valve and lock up solenoid should turn on the check engine light.
