I had a 2006 that did that and it turned out to be the intake manifold gasket had failed. Something for the shop to fix if you aren't super handy.

That may not be the cause and a shop should diagnose it before you assume that the manifold is the cause.

    I removed the throttle body and cleaned out carbon around throttle plate and I also cleaned the idle air control, now it is fine, does not stall when cold.

Hi, Van starts up and drives then stalls. Will start again in an hr. Oil light comes on when stalling. OBE2 Code P0340. Was getting code P0483 but not since I replaced fan relay & temp sensor. Thank U


If you did change the thermostat check to see if it is the right way around... back pressure some times shuts down the engine.... check that the muffler is clear and not plugged... some time carbon build up or a potato jammed in the back causes such problems, crimped pipe or plugged catalytic converter...( tap it with a hammer) next would be the fuel filter... if it is plugged, or the line crimped, air locked... you are not getting enough fuel... next check to see if the fuel pump is working... two types... mechanical located on the side of the engine, other in the gas tank... don't know what type you have, but you would need an in line pressure gage or a flow meter to check, research how to de pressure fuel lines before you disconnect a gas line incase it is an in tank pump

My van won't start after driving a short distance, it will start again after 3 to 5 minutes but then will act like it's going to stall while I'm driving. What's wrong?


Hi Greg, I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair in St Charles Mo

Greg, I read your complete message, but nowhere did I see that you replaced the Cam Sensor. The EGR will cause it to stall at stops but usually will not prevent it from restarting. I would try replacing the Cam Sensor before anything else. If you should need further assistance go to my website by clicking here: Auto Repair

If it wont stall in neutral or park it may have a bad torque convertor clutch in the trans causing the engine to stall.

2001 dodge grand caravan stalls


Check the sensors on the throttle body. There is a sensor that controls air to fuel ratio. If that sensor is bad then the car will run and then stall out while in drive. I had the same problem when it was cold outside last winter. If you dont want to dish out the money without knowing if it is that part at fault or not then start the van pop the hood and located the throttle body. Place your hand on the sensors and give them a little shake and then make sure they are plugged in all the way. You could also turn the van off and unhook the sensor clean the connectors and plug it back in. That should do the trick and if it doesnt stall anymore then I would replace those sensors if I was you. One more thing. If your giving the sensors a tug while the car is running and you hear it going to stall you could located the gas pedal cable and give it a rev or two by hand so it doesnt stall out and turn off. By the way. You van isnt over heating at all is it?
