When the check engine light comes one, that means there is a code waiting to be read. If you let a place like Autozone read it, that may help.
Pumping the pedal only works on carbs, and does absolutely no good on fuel injection.
To check the fuel system, the very first thing you always have to do is put a fuel gauge on the fuel rail.
You could have a vacuum leak, like a broken hose, bad PVC, loose gas tank cap, etc.
But backfiring is usually bad plug wires.
Pull the plugs and look for ones that are different and wet or sooty.

It is getting too much gas. ie flooding. Go to Advance Auto and they will read out the computer codes for free so you know which of several sensors are not function properly.

Find the fuel filter


The fuel filter in newer cars is usually located near the fuel tank but don't crack the system open straight away, it will run pressurized so you have to take out the fuel pump fuse, crank the engine to suck what fuel it can, then you can open up the system

What could cause engine bucking 09 caravan


Sounds like a clogged fuel filter, a bad fuel pressure regulator, or a failing fuel pump.
Start by replacing the fuel filter.

1992 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3l dies on highway.


Its normal for the pump to run for three seconds then shut off if the car engine is off. . This indicates that the fuel pump turned on and the pressure did reach specifications. If the pump did not reach pressure the pump would continue to run, You need to check for proper pressure with a gauge. If tthe pressure is ok then you have another issue like an ignition module or crank sensor if applicable. You may have to drive the car with the fuel gauge hooked up to see if you still have pressure when it dies.. I know you said you replaced the pump already but do you have the same issues as before you replaced it. This would indicate which direction you need to go now. If the same then its prabably not the pump.

94 dodge grand caravan no fuel in fuel rail


Dear Ron, you have replaced fuel pump and fuel filter. You have checked the fuel pump relay. Still no fuel in rail. Try bypassing fuel relay with jumper from batt to fuel pump. If o/k then check computer for ground to relay. This system uses a relay that is operated by the computer that supplies a ground for the relay to operate. The wire color is green,16 gage. If the ground is not available then "no fuel" Check this with a test light. Key on and crank apply test light to ground wire and other end of light to ground. You should hear relay click and get fuel. If this checks out you will need to replace computer or get creative with rewiring the relay so it works without computer input. Good luck Moe
