Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan

2 Answers

My 94 dodge caravan 3.0, runs good for about 40 min then when I press on the gas it refuses to accelerate, a couple of min later, when I press on the gas it will actually decelerate, then it will gradually die out completly, after letting it set for a couple of hours, it starts and runns fine for another 20-30 min, then begins its cascade toward stalling again.

    a dirty or cloged fuel filter, or a bad fuel pump were my first thoughts as well, I tested the fuel pump and replaced the fuel filter to no avail, I even tried a new comp, nothing seems to work so far.

Stick a fuel pressure guage on fuel rail port and run guage out of hood and tape it down to something, fuel pressure sould be 48-52 psi all the time, take it for a long drive, when starts to lose power, fuel pressure drops, you have a fuel pump problem, replace it, easy to change, drop rear of fuel tank, remove 2 fuel lines, 1 harness, hammer the retainer clip out, and remove the pump module, best if tank is down past 1/2. to 1/4 full. what is happening is your fuel pump motor is heating up and seizing, cools down and ready to go again. GOOD LUCK RDJRP

Sounds like there may be a fuel filter problem, try replacing the fuel filter. Specially if you have not done it over a while.

1999 dodge grand caravan was runing great park it then went out later to go somewhee it wont start making a funny pump sound on the passner side its is low on oil and what kink does it take

sometimes the gas gauge wont work right and show more gas than you have. my 94 caravan does the same thing. i suggest putting 5 gal of gas in the tank and see then if it starts. as for the oil... if you low and have been for a while just take it in for an oil change and ask them what they put in.
