Question about 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan

2 Answers

Sputtering, flickering lights, no acceleration, slipping and jumping while in gear.. I took it in for oil change and fluids check two weeks ago, and this evening my check engine light came on, heater stopped blowing out hot air, and then it started in with all the other problems while I was driving. Made it home, but I am just hoping it makes it to the shop tomorrow.

Sounds like the alternator,have it checked at the auto parts store for free,the output should be checked at the battery with the engine running,and 13.65 to 14.25 volts should be what the alternator produces,with the ac fan on.and the head lights on.

Trans bangs into gear on acceleration, feels like 2nd to 3rd gear. I have 98K on this honda. Trans fluid was never changed. Checked trans fluid it is in spec, bangs into gear hot or cold. Also check engine...


In all probability, the transmission fluid has stopped doing its work. You should have changed ATF fluid and filter about 60k miles ago. Auto transmission on 1998-2002 Accords are notoriously weak. ( i own one). I would venture to say that you have abused the tranny beyond its possibilities. If D light is flashing, transmission computer has detected a problem. Change tranny oil and filter to see if you can save it but outlook is not good.

Transmission slipping


absolutely. every maker like honda, nissan , toyota, have there specific tranny fluid to use because it does not over heat the tranny. dexron lll will hurt any japanese cars. i would check to which fluid they used and check with the dealer for the proper spec of oil.

The engine seems to be making a sputtering noise


Amelia, we just bought one off a lease 5 weeks ago (purchased from a dealer). We are having the same symptoms, suddenly, as you describe.

Took it back to the dealership. After a bit of drama, they agreed to foot the repair bill ($1000). It was a broken distributer cap and wiring which should have been replaced before it was resold to us. What a pain.

My battery light flickers when I am at a stop sign--it goes off when i accelerate. i bought a battery and the alternator tests ok.


either the belt is slipping or the alternator is losing juice at a lower rpm....i take it it was checked in park,or taken out and tested by a machine which spins fast?

The injector could definitely trigger a misfire code, but you also mentioned that you had a mass airflow sensor code , that code code be responsible for te sluggish moment of the vehicle and rpm going up and down. However if you have a misfire onCyl#6 and the coil and the plug is good the ONLY other thing to cause a mis-fire would be the injector. To check the injector get a NOID light, you can get one at almost any auto-parts place. To use unplug injector plug from the bad injector and connect it to NOID light the light should have a steady PULSE/ligt flickering. If light flickers fine then injector is bad and will need to be replaced. If light doesn't flicker or flickers intermittently then you may have a bad wiring to that injector. Check if wiring is good, then you may have a bad cam sensor or sensor gear. Good Luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA
