Question about 1993 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

Stalls just after idling for more than 3 minutes

This happens in the summer months. I start up the van, put it in drive and everything is fine. If I idle at a place like a drive thru everything is still fine. Put it into drive again and it hicups severely and eventually stalls. Sometimewhen I pull off to the side turn off the engine and back on again everything is ok but most of the time the same problem of hicupping and stalling happens again. The only way to get it around the block is to keep pumping the pedal. When I try the van next day, the car runs fine untill it idles again. It really does happen more on hot humid days... bizzare. I have taken it to three places with no luck.

I had the same problem. you have to either keep replacing the filter until the line has cleaned out or blow the filter out with an air hose. Tedious but cheap.

My 1992 chev lumina apv van stalls everytime i put on the brakes at every red light it restarts after no codes are coming up what could it be?:


check to make sure the power brake booster is not leaking, do this by starting the van and just let it idle in park and push the brake pedal if the engine stalls or surges or you hear a sucking noise under the dash then replace the power brake booster if there is none of these systems then replace the idle control motor. GOOD LUCK

1996 Chevy Express 1500 w/5.0 bogging only when warm.


The cylinder 7 misfire is likely a symptom of the problem, not the problem itself.

Typically, the catalytic converter has an oxygen sensor in front and behind it. When the vehicle is warm and running in closed loop mode, the upstream oxygen sensor waveform reading should fluctuate. The downstream 02 sensor reading should be fairly steady. Typically the P0420 code triggers the check engine light if the readings of the two sensors are similar. This is indicative of (among other things - such as faulty sensors in the "emissions loop") a converter that is not working as efficiently as it should be.

I do not believe that it is a problem with a valve/head gasket or cam.

2002 sequioa sudden stall


Often when the battery is disconnected or replaced the computer will lose it's learned idle settings. You could try letting the engine idle in park until the engine temperature comes up to normal and leave it like that for a few minutes, then put the Air con on and let it idle again for a few minutes, then switch the air con off and put it into drive. If it does not stall, let it idle in drive for 2 minutes or so, and then do the same with the Air con on. This should relearn the base idle settings and stop it from stalling on you. Before you carry out this procedure you should make sure that when you replaced the battery you didn't remove any other plugs or knocked anything that may be causing the fault. If you try this procedure and it still stall when you select drive, you will need to get a Mechanic to check the vehicle over.

Hope this helps,
Mark.
