Question about 2002 Dodge Caravan

Open Question

I have a 2001 dodge grand caravan 3.8 engine. over the past month i have had several problems. the engine light came on with an overwhelming smell of gas and jerking. i took it to a shop they said one fuel injector is bad and the plenum gasket is leaking wanted to charge me over $1000.00 to do a bunch of matainence work and change those things. i called someone else he replaced the air filter and the engine light went off. later that day the air conditioner blower did not work i couldn't get heat defrost, or air. a couple of days later the engine light was back on with the same symptoms. i took it to a third mechanic he replaced the spark plugs and wires and fuel filter, griming seals, valve cover gasket and the front a/c blower motor. this all happened while in fl. on vacation. we drove home 5 days later. two days later the engine light was back on with little to no symptoms. the computer said idle to high. my brother replaced the tps. a day later it came back on stating same thing. a couple of days later i went just a few miles from my home and my overheat light came on i added water and antifreeze because the reservoir was below min and drove a few feet it did it again so to my destination and back home i had to stop every couple of feet because this continued. please help. single mother with 4 kids who just lost her job.

SOURCE: how to replace a PCV valve on my 1997 dodge neon?

Once you have the new PCV valve locate the old one on your engine. It will sit on the middle of one of your valve covers (most likely passenger side) and will have a line that connects to the top of the valve. Simply pull the old one out and put the new one in snapping that line on the new one. Should only take about a minute to do. Hope this helps, let me know if it does.

god bless you for serving our country!!!

2004 Dodge Grand Caravan engine light on, missfire

That is a code for the secondary (spark) circuit on cylinder number 3. It is usually caused by a bad connection between the coil and the plug (take the coil off the plug and check for moisture in the boot). If not, it might be a bad coil...

1999 dodge caravan the check engine light is on but no codes in pcm

This has happened to me also and after having my mechanic check it out several times it was discovered a sensor had gone out. It was going to cost close to $140 to replace. I ask what would happen if I didn't replace it and he said "nothing, your check engine light will just stay on" So, we've driven it for the past two years with the check engine light on with no problems.

Engine misfiring/fuel coming out exhaust

Sounds like you may need to inspect and replace your fuel line from front to rear. no other reason for your problem.
