There are two ways to identify the engine you have. First way is to locate the white emission ID label located under the hood. This label is white with black print, about 2" x 4" and will say something like "this vehicle conforms to such and such for model year 1987...." and somewhere on it it will also have the engine size in liters such as 4.3, 5.0, 5.7, or 6.2 Most of these vans came with the 5.7L [350 cubic inch] engine. This label usually is on top of the radiator shroud, bottom side of the hood, or one one of the supports [it varies] but should be fairly easy to find unless it's been removed or lost somehow. The second way to determine which engine you have it to find the 8th digit of the 17 digit VIN number. The letter Z means you have a 4.3L, H is a 5.0L, K and M are 5.7L engines, and J is the 6.2L diesel. Hope this helps out!

Need a wireing diagram

Ido not see a solution posted...but will offer thar your input voltage to the coil is low when cranking the engine...but when the key is restored to the run position, voltage is almost enough to fire a spark plug. Put a dc voltmeter on the 12 volt input terminal of the coil and confirm. If input voltage is ok then replace coil.

I have an insanely stupid question, but I really don't know the answer. I just bought a used 1997 Dodge Caravan. The tires really need to be replaced. I have a 1995 GMC Vandura that I put tires on in...

the GMC wheels won't work on the Dodge nor will the Dodge wheels work on the GMC. if the tires are the same size,i.e, P215/75R15 or P215/70R15, then you can have the tires mounted on the Dodge wheels.
