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.

1994 continental. air ride. compressor starts and rear starts to lift, but after 3-4 mins. i get a beep and light on dash says ride control and then she squats in the rear?


When I got my 1994 Continental, it had already been converted back to a coil-spring suspension, and the air-ride system was GONE. You will find that is the case with most of the ones that are still on the road. The air-ride system turned out to be an unreliable, trouble-prone, nightmare for most owners....and it was cheaper to scrap it and go back to after-market coils, than what it was to have a Lincoln dealer fix it. Looks like you're destined to join the club....If you decide you want to have it fixed, and make the car driveable, be prepared to PAY for it.

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.

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?

I returned home from a week vacation and left my 2009 Honda Civic in the garage completely fine, no trouble at all. When I got back and tried to start it up, it was completely dead. Ok, dead battery was...


The first thing I want to mention is that if the vehicle goes crazy like that make sure you are jumping it correctly with positive and negative in the right locations. The reason I mention is because if it is jumped incorrectly it will cause the vehicle to make the alarm go off like that and could fry your whole electrical system. Try jumping the car it may be a alarm issue, that goes off when power returns to the vehicle, use the remote to try and shut it off. If that gives you no luck, then turn next to your charging system. This would mean your alternator or starter, either one of the two could have gave out on you during that period. If that still does not work check all your fuses to see if there are any popped, and also try and get it to a autorepair shop, they would be able to determine of a sensor has affected an electrical component within the system. My best gues would be either a short or a problem with your charging system. Those two aspects would be you'r best bet.

Hope This Helps!

Will any other sturt work on a 95 lincoln continental on the front


You have a 1995 continental

If you have worn out struts, they would
only be replaced with new struts,
both sides,front or back

The only strut you would use or would
fit and be calibrated properly,would be one
designed specificly for your vehicle.

You would never get to the, will it fit another
vehicle.

You could look it up at the auto parts store and
try to cross it,but why!! Your only buying new
and correct parts, another vehicles part may
fit ,but won't operate on yours correctly

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.
