My Dodge is my baby. I've had this van for about 1 year now. 150,000 miles, 3.9 engine and purrs like a kitten all regular maintenance was kept up great. Nothing leaks, check engine light never comes on. Totally reliable I have one problem that just started that i am not farmiliar with. Van may start perfect 10 times straight. On the 11th start nothing, no power no click, no sound, nothing. If i hold the key in the start position or turn it a few times then it will start. Battery is fine, Altinator, belt & pulley have already been replaced about 6 months ago. check engine light is NOT on. So what chould it be?

If you van has a security system in it, it could be causing this problem. they usually disable the starter circuit. Paul has listed good places to start. but if they don't fix it do this: when your trying to start but its not working have some one check voltage at the starter. there are 3 points to check 1: where battery cable connects 2: where starter connects to solenoid 3: small wire that operates solenoid. if there is voltage at all three point replace starter it has a shorted / open spot on armature. voltage at 1 and 3 but not 2 replace solenoid. voltage at 1 but not at 3 and you have already checked the items Paul identified check wiring between neutral safety switch and solenoid.

So you should just pus the lever up a little more

I now have 98,000 miles on my car. How much longer can it last without major repair work?


150,000 miles is usually the mark for a timing chain engine to get the tensioners looked at. Other than that, the only known issues are all recalls or TSB's. The computer failure, which should have been done by now, and the engine belt tensioner going bad prematurely, replaced by a stronger design, and the clock going dim, which is a quick soldiering fix. Corollas are very, very long lasting cars as long as you do regular maintenance, oil changes every 5000 (basically when the light comes on, sooner if older or lots of hard driving), flush brake fluid yearly, coolant as specified, and (if applicable) automatic transmission fluid at the 30,000's, with a screener every other change. 200,000 miles is easy to come by on these cars. Also, don't get the Bendix engine belt. It's rubbish. Dayco or Gatorback will last a lot longer.

Is a 1999 dodge caravan worth $300 if it needs tranny at 95000 miles?


I'd say yes. Including the cost of a transmission it could be operational for under 1500 dollars. I kept up on the '98 I bought for my wife with regular maintenance and it finally died at over 300,000 miles. Most newer Chryslers have a 100,000 mile warranty, so theoretically it could have still been under warranty. Please rate my solution, and leave a testimonial.

Changing a Timing Belt


at 150,000 miles pretty much everything could be worn out if it is all original, if the van is in really good shape no dents or bad dings paint good, interior is in really good shape and the van has been serviced on a regular basis then yes fix it, also this is a free wheeling engine so if the timing belt breaks there is no damage to the engine, if it ran good with no excess oil useage or engine noise fix it..

Service your cooling system every 5 years or 150,000 miles. The GM Dex Cool has a life of 5 years or 150,000 miles which ever comes first. Replace the thermostat also and buy the fail safe thermostat, it cost a bit more but worth it.

Service the engine (spark plugs and wire) every 100,000 miles or till engine management prompt attention. (service engine light DTC code)

Service the transmission every 3 years or 60,000 miles, replace the transmission oil and filter. Transfer case fluid and differential fluid.

Service the engine oil and filter every 6 months or 3,000 miles. Lube Chassis

Service the air filter and cabin air filter, wiper blades every 15,000 miles or once a year.

I wrote in yesterday about my 1995 Volvo 850 (approx 160,000 miles) with leaking valves that will required about $1200 more in work. I appreciate the good responses I've received. One more question:...


yes I do believe you can easily get 200k out of her. I have seen a few volvo's with over 250k on them. As long as maintenance is kept up, she'll keep purring

Chain smoker


Turbo oil seal is probably bad. This lets oil leak into the air intake from the turbo bearing. If smoke goes away during hard acceration, then this is probably your problem. Turbo replacement or rebuild is the fix for this.
