Question about 1993 Dodge Caravan
While driving in 100+ degree heat, my 1993 Dodge Caravan died. While we were on the interstate, she was fine, but as soon as we entered the city, she died. We sat for 30 minutes and she started back up. Drove about 10 miles through the city and she died again. Sat for 10 minutes this time and she ran okay. Tonight, with cooler temps, she drove the 30 miles home drive just fine. What gives?
I'm thinking more along the lines of fuel boil and vapour lock. Ford Tempo / Topaz also had this problem. If it was over heat it would boil over the radiator and your gauge would go all the way into the red or temp light would come on it wouldn't simply just quit. Is this by chance a 4 cylinder engine?
