May need to have the exhaust/emissions system checked out.

I have a Town and Country that had some similar symptoms and a bad catalytic converter was the culprit.

Replaced the converter and it's good as new.

Motor locked up

I will give you an answer first based on the motor being locked up, frozen, with starter attempting to engage flywheel and motor not turning. Check oil level as lack of oil would predict seized components. Some engines had problems with 2 matching components called cam phasers. These could stick and overadvance timing, resulting in compression bound motor.
Cylinders could be filled with either water or gasoline. Water present from leaking head gasket, gasoline from open fuel injectors.
Several things to try to access damage. Use breaker bar on crank pulley and see if engine can be turned either direction. Remove intake and sparkplugs to see if engine turns more freely or if visibly signs of failure on sparkplugs. These engines having 2 cams have difficult sparkplugs which require special care to remove.
Now if "Locked up" means the starter does not spin or make noise, then its a less severe problem. There is a Lock out switch under the dash on the brake pedal lever. When this switch is faulty, the Brake lights will not light. The vehicle needs this signal to complete the circuit to the starter solenoid. Just replace or reposition the brake lever switch.

Why does my 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan smell like gasoline intermittantly?

I had this problem with my minivan as well. The gas line had become old and started to corrode. It only smelled like gas when we started the engine, something to do with the pressure in the lines I believe. Was a fairly cheap fix (under $100), just a piece of plastic hose. Most of the expense was the labour.Have a mechanic check it out.

Phil, hi,

Is the hydraulic system low on oil? Check that, and check the line that feeds the pump, see if it's collapsing and causing cavitation.

Toyota vits 2005 shaking engine

Very possibly you have a bad motor mount. Is the engine missing or running smooth but shaky? If it is missing, then it may be plugs, wires, or injectors, if runs fine but shaky, then you may have a bad motor mount.
