Hello Cindy.
While there may be many items that can cause this issue to happen, if the car runs well otherwise it may be the idle air control motor sticking and not allowing enough air into the engine to go with the fuel.
If the check engine light is on get it scanned and repaired as one or more of the codes stored may be the culprit.
If it has been a while since your last tune up this may be a good time to get it done. Weak ignition can also be at fault here but most of the time other issues will show up such as a chugging at highway speeds.

I hope this will help you along towards a repair.
Take care.

You provided no info on the vehicle motor,so
I would assume you may have an Air Idle Solenoid
next to the throttle or on the intake manifold,that you
can remove & try cleaning or replace.

Could be a number of things but may want to begin by checking wiring to starter, battery, or even the ignition switch. These components may not turn your engine light on.

Make sure it's getting fuel. Try using some ether or starting fluid. If it rumbles to life but doesn't stay running then there's a problem with the fuel delivery system. i.e.... Fuel pump, clogged filter, pressure regulator.... If the ether doesn't change the results you are getting now then it's a fire or sensor problem. Ignition coil, relays, sensors not signaling, PCM... I wish you luck. Let us know how it turns out

Dodge caravan 1996 doesnt start


It is very hard to help you when you give no details. But if it doesn't do anything when you try to start it you probably need to charge battery or get new one. If it is trying to start and doesn't sound weak then you need to have someone look at it. It doesn't sound like you would want to do anything yourself but if its not the battery, it doesn't sound good. Good luck

Car hesitates at higher speeds


Plugs and wires, air filters are a good start, and fuel filter. If this doesn't help consider checking the psi on the fuel pump.

It sounds like your fuel pump is bad. The fuel sending unit, which tells your gas guage how much gas you have is integrated into the pump so when you replace the pump it will fix both problems.

Good Luck!
