You have a bad thermostat, water pump, fan, fan belt or a clog somewhere in the system (radiator could be clogged even though water may flow through it, it may be restricted and need to be flushed). If you were low with your anti-freeze water mixture, the engine can still overheat as well. Check your level, add what you need, start the van and drive it locally, watching the water temp gauge. If that doesn't work, you might want to stop by a repair center life Firestone or Goodyear and ask for them to diagnose the problem. They will tell you what is wrong and the price to fix it. Now that you know the problem and cost, you can either do it yourself or if the price is right have them do the repair. As long as you have a indicator light like check engine or something similar, Autozone will hook up a code reader and tell you exactly what the problem is for free in the hopes of selling you parts for the repair. I hope this helps and good luck!

1998 chevy 4x4 1500 5.0 in moring after i start it it knocks for a couple of mins then stops runs fine good oil pressure has 86000 miles has been doing it for a couple years

if theres a knock when you start it and it goes a way after it warms up you may be a little low on oil or cuz its a chevy it just needs to warm up before driving naturally a bigger engines gonna take longer for oil to move through all the parts especially in colder weather. maybe even check and see if it needs a valve adjustment.

92 dodge caravan i have replaced water pump, thermostat, radiator & hoses and its still building to much preshure, still overheating, no heat through vents. no leaks just blows a hose every time

Hi, Sounds like you need a radiator flush. If the radiator is plugged up it can not cool the engine properly. Have it cleaned out and it should work fine. Good luck.

99 grand caravan--hear a knocking in front suspension--recently replaced both sway bar links-still knocks--is it most likely lower ball joints? 170k miles--love the van, still goes great

The knocking could be ball joints, control arm bushings, worn strut mounts or struts, missing or damaged spring isolators or a broken coil spring. All of these things are easily diagnosed once the truck is up on a lift , with the exception of the strut, since it cannot be tested unless it is completely removed from the vehicle. However struts should be replaced every 50,000-75,000 miles.

No oil to back of motor 1992 dodge caravan

You either have a blocked oil line or a blown head gasket blocking the oil line. Check the oil for any signs of white residue. This is a sign of a headgasket leak or break up. Good luck!

My 1996 dodge grand caravan back lifters are dry and not getting oil. heavy knocking. What could be the problem?

Dear Knocking,
It is a very very well possibility that you simply have "sludge" built up inside galley oil passages.The simpliest way to start off with this would be to install a motor flush chemical and let it run for about 20 minutes at idle, then drain the oil and install new, with filter.hile installing the new oil add an additive called "Seafoam" it's in a white can, use it per directions for the crankcase oil, start the vehicle and put a few to 50 miles on it, see where that places you, you should be impressed with the results.If that does not cure the carbon sludge build up, then it is an oil pressure problem.Get back to me if ya have anymore question, I'M HERE TO HELP!!!

Very hard knocking, maybe valve lifter ? ran out of oil and ran it for a few miles. it stalled, then noticed no oil, the oil pan plug had fallen out/ filled it up with oil and put in new oil pan plug....

as much as i hate to say this, you probably have a rod knock and it is time to replace that motor. if a repair facility changed the oil, they are responsible.

I want to know what the basic maintance on a 2000 dodge caravan

It depends on the mileage. You should change hoses, belt(s) and coolant at least every 3 years. Change trans fluid and clean filter every 30,000 miles. Change oil every 3,000 miles. Check the air filter regularly. EGR valve is a 60,000 mile replacement I believe.

If you don't have an owner's manual and like to DIY, get a Chilton or Haynes repair guide. Check the brakes at every rotation - I use 5,000 miles as my guide.
