Question about 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

On vacation, we went over the Continental divide or four times. The vehicle had trouble getting over the divide. When we got ready to go back home we stopped to eat lunch turn the vehicle off. Went back out and it would not start. I mean, it would start, but it was shut off after 20 seconds. Then the next day, we drove the vehicle's 750 miles with no problems at all

Souds like it could be a vapor lock problem. As long as the engine is running, cool gasoline is moving through the fuel system. Once the engine is shut off, if the fuel line at some place is getting hot it can cause the engine to not start or quit after starting. After the fuel line cools normal gas flow is restored. Look at the fuel line as it routes around the engine and see if you an spot this.

Won,t crank says no bus fuel gage wont work.there was a loose wire in steering column hooked this back up bus light went off cranked said p done .went to town yesterday shut off coming home cranked back,...


What color wire was loose ? VI/YL - Violet with yellow trace . A no bus message means the instrument cluster lost communication with the serial data network . Do you know what that is ? Gauge info. comes from other computers on the vehicle through the data bus. If a module (computer ) looes connection some how , faultly module , wiring problem etc... this message will show an more then likely a DTC - diagnostic trouble code will set in one of the modules on the vehicle . Don't know how much you know about this stuff , but you can not go to a auto part's store an have it check for code's . The tool they use doesn't check all the computers on the vehicle . The data bus on your vehicle is the PCI bus. 006 Chrysler PCI Communications

Reading as much as you can about this an finding wiring diagrams to test the bus wiring plus having the modules checked for communication network code's is the way to find a fix . Most of the time it is a loose connection that causes this problem .

Engine shut off while towing up a hill.


You'll need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes then go from there. If the check engine light was on for more than a minute there should be trouble codes stored.
The EVAP leak would not cause the engine to stall.

Can rev up the RPM,s in nuetral but it will only idle when its in grear.What do u think


Your car is probably in the limp mode meaning it won't allow you to rev the engine with it in gear. I suspect something majorly is wrong with your tranny. Limp modes are put into effect when you car senses trouble so it may still be fixable without too any $$$. When was the last time you serviced the transmission ( oil and filter change?)

If you had white smoke then you have a blown head gasket. Even though it hasnt yet mixed with the oil you are still having the white smoke. Is there any water left in the radiator or reservoir?

Service engine soon lights is on on lincoln continental 2001


Sometimes the service engine light comes on when the censor in the coolant overflow gets low. Try adding a little coolant to the overflow to the appropriate level.

Doors lock themselves


Sounds like the keyless entry system is malfunctioning. Remove the door lock relay for now until the dealer can reprogram it.
