Question about 1999 Dodge Caravan

Open Question

Where are the safest jack points for raising the front and rear of a 1999 Dodge caravan? I can see 2 points on the front end between the engine mount and radiator on the front, with a circular bumper on the engine side. I am currently assuming that the body side of the bumper should be safe...

SOURCE: Noise in the front end of my 1997 Dodge Caravan 3.0L

You can drive on those struts untill it has no sping, and even then it is just dangerous because of bad handling. If it is you struts, then your car should bounce up and down if you tap the brakes, because the gas seal is leaking.
Struts are very easy to replace. The only special tool is a spring compressor, but it is easy to use, and you may be able to borrow one at an auto parts store like the AutoZone. Just a couple bolts at the top and bottom, and it comes right out. They cost less than $100.
If it doesn't bounce...it could be your half-shaft. Does it click when you make a turn backing up?

Jacking points rotted is the a alternative way of jacking up the vehicle


There are a number of locations under the van where it will still be safe to jack it up, if you go further under the vehicle to reach the subframe near the vans suspension ahead of the rear wheel, or near the drive train frame behind the front wheel, avoiding any lines or cables in either case. This is only a stop-gap measure. The van's stock jack won't be the safest choice to use for this and it would be advisable to have a bodyshop/mechanic weld in replacement jack hardpoints with alignment studs as soon as is convenient.

On a 1999 300 I can not get the oil pan to drop out. It hits the front and the the flywheel in the rear. It looks like the engine needs to be raised. Can this be?


yes, this is often the case. Determine which end should be raised, and unbolt the motor mount on that side. Find a solid place to push up on the engine and jack it up a few inches at most. If no good place to jack, can possibly pry up from above using a 2 by 4, but be careful not to slip the pry while removing the pan.

Lifting

The following instructions must be carried out before raising the vehicle off the ground.

  • Use a solid level ground surface.
  • Apply hand brake.
  • Select 'P' on automatic gearbox selector.
Note: If the propeller shafts are to be removed, reference must be made to the relevant operation. To avoid damage occurring to the under body components of the vehicle the following jacking procedures must be adhered to.

DO NOT POSITION JACKS OR AXLE STANDS UNDER THE FOLLOWING COMPONENTS:
  • Body structure other than approved jacking points
  • Bumpers
  • Fuel lines
  • Fuel tank
  • Brake lines
  • Front or rear suspension arms
  • Transfer box
  • Steering linkage
  • Front or rear differential units
  • Engine sump
  • Automatic gearbox
NOTE: For certain repair operations, it may be necessary to support the engine under the sump. In this case, a block of hardwood or a rubber block should be positioned on the jack lifting cup to protect sump. Vehicle jack
The jack provided with the vehicle is only intended for use in an emergency, for changing a tyre. DO NOT use the jack for any other purpose. Refer to Owner's Handbook for vehicle jack location points and procedure. Never work under a vehicle supported solely by the vehicle jack.

Hydraulic jack
A hydraulic jack with a minimum 1500 kg, (3,300 lbs) load capacity must be used.

WARNING: Do not commence work on the underside of the vehicle until suitable axle stands have been placed in their correct position. Always chock the wheels when jacking. The handbrake may be ineffective when the wheels are off the ground. Raising and supporting the vehicle
To assist in raising the vehicle, jacking points are provided as shown in the following illustrations.

Raising the front of the vehicle
Apply handbrake, select 'P' on automatic gearbox selector and chock rear wheels.
Axle stand positions - front

Raise vehicle to enable axle stands to be positioned under, either, the front sub-frame, or the recommended customer jacking points.

CAUTION: Place a piece of hardwood or a rubber block between each axle stand and the jacking point to avoid damaging the body / component. If the propeller shafts are to be removed, select NEUTRAL in the main gearbox.
Carefully lower jack until vehicle sits securely on axle stands.

WARNING: Always support the vehicle on axle stands when using a jack.
Before commencing work on underside of vehicle re-check security of vehicle on stands.

Reverse procedure when removing vehicle from stands.

If any damage occurs to the washers on the front mounting points of the rear sub-frame, then the washers must be replaced. Carefully lower jack until vehicle sits securely on axle stands.

WARNING: Always support the vehicle on axle stands when using a jack. Before commencing work on underside of vehicle re-check security of vehicle on stands.

Reverse procedure when removing vehicle from stands.

Wheel-free lift
The following warning must be read before attempting to lift the vehicle.

WARNING: The vehicle cannot be supported safely in a wheel-free condition using the wheel-free facility of a four post ramp, and under no circumstances must this method be employedA wheel free condition may only be achieved on a four post ramp by raising each end of the vehicle and positioning axle stands beneath the recommended customer jacking points.

CAUTION: Place a piece of hardwood or a rubber block between each axle stand and the jacking point to avoid damaging any components. If the propeller shafts are to be removed, select NEUTRAL in the main gearbox. WARNING: The front and rear suspension lower arms must NOT be used as lifting / jacking points. Alternatively, support the vehicle on an approved two post lift with the arms of the lift beneath the recommended customer jacking points.

CAUTION: Place a piece of hardwood or a rubber block between the lifting equipment and the jacking points to avoid damaging any components. If the propeller shafts are to be removed, select NEUTRAL in the main gearbox.

How do I change the rear 3 spark plugs on a '94 Grand Caravan?


Yes, these are tough to get at from the top. Put the front on jack stands or ramps, and you can reach them a little easier from the bottom. You just need to reach up where the exhaust pipe comes down, and you can even see what you're doing this way.
