Question about 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan
My engine malfunction light just came on. What are somet things I can check out before taking it into an expensive dealer?
Run into a Pep Boys, or Autozone & they will do a scan for codes free of charge, that should point everyone in right direction. If codes reveal obvious fix, then grab part while your there, otherwise get back to us with the codes & we'll help you out further.

Assuming that you maintain the vehicle properly, I will start with the basics. Make sure oilis properly topped off and not dirty. Check charging system by monitoring the power of your battery and how the car starts. Look around the bottom where you park the vehicle for signs of anything leaking. Check all other fluids (i.e. radiator coolant, brake fluid, etc.). Sometimes changin the type of fuel will cause this. Also check the fuel cap... make sure it is tight as some vehicles sense this by monitoring pressure in the gas tank. If a visual inspection of all these things do not reflect a problem, it is best to have an authorized mechanic perform at least a diagnostics. Today's high-tech vehicles are computer controlled and difficult to diagnose a trouble light without running a diagnostics. Sometimes the lights do come on at the slightest hint of a problem and may not really be a problem... but always play it safe and have it checked.
