Question about 1993 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

'92 Dodge Caravan low speed stall.

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.

My van won't start after driving a short distance, it will start again after 3 to 5 minutes but then will act like it's going to stall while I'm driving. What's wrong?


Hi Greg, I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair in St Charles Mo

Greg, I read your complete message, but nowhere did I see that you replaced the Cam Sensor. The EGR will cause it to stall at stops but usually will not prevent it from restarting. I would try replacing the Cam Sensor before anything else. If you should need further assistance go to my website by clicking here: Auto Repair

1997 Dodge Grand Caravan--Previous owner told us it had elec. problems--Drove about 40 miles home with it after dark----Battery dies completely, then van quits. Alternator checks out O.K. what else can we...


The battery needs to be taken to an autoparts store such as autozone. Then will have to charge the battery overnite and then after it is well charged, then can test it. If the battery is not new, then it could be a bad cell, or the terminals could be corroded and causing it to not take a good charge.

Charging system erratic


You need to Check the Belts for Tightness and replace the Battery Cables. When you Replace the Cables, you will need to Grind the Area where the Cables attach to Make sure that they are Contacting the Area Completely. A wire Brush will work very well for this. If the Belts are worn, they will Stretch out and will not allow the Alternator to charge the Battery. If you need more Help Just let me Know! Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
