You may need an oil change or the oil level is really low

you may also want to have a look at your spark plugs and replace them if nessisary

also look at your plug wires thay may be bad

if there the ones from the factory rplace the plugs and wires with the ones the truck calls for (youll knotice a big difference)

My 2000 Dodge Caravan won't start


Are you saying the engine will not crank, or crank but will not start ?
None of the engine sensors come into play until after the engine is cranking.
Cranking problems can include the neutral safety switch and other factors with the crank circuit back to the key switch.

Yes, the crank will spin a few times to each rotation of the rotor. If you have the timing belt on, you should be able to crank the engine with the starter. Just make sure you take the spark wire off the coil first so it wont start. Also make sure you lined up the marks on the crank and cam sprockets or you may have serious timing issues.
The engine is fairly hard to turn over with normal length socket wrenches. I use a breaker bar.

You most likely have a internal short in the starter. You could pay to have a cranking test done or just replace the starter.

Won't Start.


These trucks have a problem with the catalytic convertor blocking the exhaust causing a no start condition, the three things you need to start fuel, spark and air. Try disconnecting exhaust in front of cat.
