Question about 2003 Dodge Caravan

2003 Dodge Grand Caravan starts idles 3 sec then just dies...

My 2003 Dodgre Grand Caravan will start, idle 3-4 seconds and then just die...no idle down no sputtering, nothing but silence. There are no codes, that i can get, being thrown from the computer. After it dies, it takes 30 minutes or more for it to start again (if it starts). Any suggestions?

    How can this work if the fuel pump doesn't engage nor does the starter/ignition? The motor does not crank/engage. Wouldn't the van have to fire up in order for a fuel line cleaner to be effective?

Fuel system..Filter or pump..maybe clogged
Try fuel line cleaner..make sure the tank is 3/4 full.
this may help.

    Ok so it will start for 3 or 4 seconds then dies.
    Ad the cleaner..this will help the fuel reach the fuel injectors.
    Check your connections at the distributor and the alternator.
    Also You may have a vacuum leak at the gasket between fuel injection throttle body.
    I take it you went and got it hooked up to a computer? so that would eliminate the oxygen sensor.
    It has to be one of these..Or Not.
    good luck.

Dodge caravan dies when in gear


Vacuum leaks. ( hissing noise around the engine). Tune up (plugs and wires). clean the throttle body(inside of it). All these can cause rough idle. The dieing can be from transmission problems. Can you rev the van up and keep it running while in gear? Or does it die then too? You can replace the solenoid pack on the outside of the transmission for around $250, if you do it yourself. If you do this, DO NOT get any dirt in the holes of the transmission where the solenoid pack sets. Clean it well before you remove the old pack.

Running problems


Idle air control valve or a vacuum leak, the idle air control valve controls the amount of air let into your engine when you start or while running you holding your foot on the gas lets more air in.

When 1993 dodge caravan is driven awhile, It sometimes will not


idle is set at factory but if the idle air control valve is bad it won't idle right also if the throttle position sensor is not working right it won't idle right a diagnostic scan should be able to determine which one is needed.

2003 dodge grand caravan has started dieing at idle.


vans in that year all have throttle body injection and are preset as long as there is enough voltage from the battery could be a low battery charge or a bad sensor not telling the computor to keep fuel going at a stop if the check engine light goes on also when that happens if it doesn t bad fuel and a fuel injection cleaner might help and see what happens after that
