Your vehicle is in "limp in" mode. You may have mechanical error with one of your sensors ... bring your vehicle in to a repair facility and have the codes pulled to see exactly which sensor or item is faulty.

Testimonial: "Thanks, I was hoping someone knew what sensor off hand. Looks like I'll end up taking it in though. Thanks again"

This is a note to add7. Did you find out from the dealer what the problem was with your van? I have a 2004 Freestar with a 4.2 engine that is doing the EXACT same thing. Any help would be appreciated!

Why does Van die when you turn the steering wheel?


Engine stall or RPM fluctuates at idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

P0102 Code on 98 Chevy 2500 van


Check to see if the pink wire on the mass air flow connector has voltage with key on.It come's from fuse #15 inthe under hood power box.Also called eng 1 fuse.If voltage is present try the old trick of using carb cleaner to see if you have a vacuum leak.that will also cause a high idle oon fuel injected veh.If you can't find anything ther your going to need to see your mechanic to trace the trouble tree down for that code.There is a long process for that code. Good luck.

Dodge 1996 caravan/engine starts then abruptly shuts off


I would check the iac(idle air control valve) first it controls the idle, and then if it is still acting up you may have to change the crank/cam position sensor

High idle or shut down when at red light


Check the exhaust compression. Remove the O2 sensors before the cataylic converts and see if it improves. If it does that means your cats are cloged and need to be replaced.
