3.0L 2000 DODGE CARAVAN SHUTS DOWN WHEN STOPPING AT A LIGHT OR STOP SIGN. NO LIGHTS ON DASH - NO ENGINE LIGHT. TURN KEY OFF AND RESTARTS OK. MUST KEEP FOOT ON GAS PEDAL AND BRAKE PEDAL TO KEEP ENGINE...


it sounds like it is starving for fuel, the fuel filter may be clogging up. when a fuel filter gets dirty and cuts some of the flow of fuel, it will stall out at stops. because the engine does not have the proper amount of fuel to keep it running. have a good day !

Car wont run. it starts an cut off


Does the security light flashing after it dies? Will it stay running if you keep your foot on the gas?

It started, when i put it in reverse it died. now it will not start.it turns over and acts like it wants to start but wont. there is gas in it.


Engage the "clear flood mode" by holding the gas pedal to the floor while cranking. This cuts down on fuel delivery to clear a flooded engine. As the engine starts and runs, let up on the gas.

I have a 94 Toyota 22RE that starts fine runs for 45 sec and cuts off. Just replaced the fuel pump and still does the same thing. When I try to give it gas it seems like going to cut-off until I let off...


replace the throttle postion sensor also pull catalitic converter and clean out if it's plugged. You can remove the idle adjust screw and reset it but i would have to give you full proceedure to do that so post here for more detailed information.

Chugs, acts like it's not getting gas once warmed up. Idle's fine


This problem can be several things. When your engine is cold, your computer is in a "closed loop" and just pretty much keeps the engine running until warmed up. After reaching operation temperature, the computer starts reading all the sensors. If one sensor is not connected or is defective, you will experience performance problems. Most of the time this will turn on the check engine light, but not always. Second is the fuel pump. This too will cause erratic engine problems.

Wont keep running


I would say it sounds exactly like a passlock problem. There is a detailed write-up here: http://newrockies.ca . The guy is great, this was the only way I was able to save my Park Avenue.

Do i have a vapor lock


Remove the gas cap when it does this. If you hear a woosh sound the tank vent isn't working properly. Essentially your tank has turned into a vacuum.
