It is possible that the wrong size tires are on the vehicle or possible a strut or shock is worn check the manual or dealer for the correct tire size and match them to your van and try opushing down on the fender on the side that seems to rub three times and if the car bounces for more then a couipple times it is probably a broken shock or strut

1994 dodge caravan sometimes abs light comes on sometimes no what do I check for


Sounds like a "WSS" (wheel speed sensor) problem. Each wheel has one. Located on the backside of each hub, between the brake disc and hub bearing. Check for loose connector first. Wire damage? Wiring touching exhaust pipes or rubbing wheel or tire? Look for mud or debris or damage to the sensor's or the rotating sensor ring. ( has a lot of "teeth") Try driving in reverse, in a straight line 25 to 30 feet, then drive forward twice that distance. If that does not clear the warning lamps most auto parts stores can hook into your computer (usually for free) and determine which sensor(s) have an issue. Replacing these sensors is common and simple. You may still need to get the code cleared to turn light off.

I was given a set of 215 70 R14 brand new tires and need to know if they will fit on a 1999 Dodge Caravan, the tires originally on it say 205 75 R14


Hi , tires recommended on that vehicle are 195/75R14 and 205/75R14. The tires you have are taller and wider than recommended. The taller may or may not rub fender wells going around corners, etc. The wider would be ok, but may not mount to your rims. Call a good tire shop and ask a mechanic there if it is feasable to use those tires on your existing rims. Mike

Loud scraping noise when turning corner or backing up


The scraping noise may be a "tire rub," where one or both front tires are rubbing the wheel
wells during a turn (going forward or backing up).
Cause: possible ties size may be a little larger than the tires specified by Dodge for the vehicle.
Check: the driver's door panel, which will show manufacturer-recommended tire sizes and inflation pressures.

I have a 1996 dodge ram 3500 4x4 with a v10 as soon as u get up around 20 or so mph the steering will start shaking badly


This sounds like a separated tire , rub your hand
around the complete surface of both front tires ,
looking for an outward bulge .
I believe this is the problem.
A tire shop can put it on the rack and spin it .
It should stand out .
Most vibrations under 40 mph are directly related to
the tire , above that is tire balance.

2008 dodge caravan 31k miles. I devevelped a drining hum.


Since you are still under warranty, I suggest getting your transmission checked at a dealer. We had to get ours replaced at about 28M miles. It was making wierd noises, especially in a parking lot at low speeds and when turning slowly.

There is no dipstick for the transmission fluid on our model :(

If you recently changed tires, then that could possibly be the noise too.
