    I have a 1996 Caravan which does a similar thing. It starts and stalls within a second or two. I tried pumping the accelerator and it just died. I could hear a humming sound in the rear of the car after the stall, which I think was the fuel pump (working ?). This has happened twice on hot humid days, it has not happened on cooler and/or dry days.

I HAVE A 1997 PLYMOUTH VOYAGER 3.0L ENGINE TURNS WHEN HOT AFTER 100 MILES THE ENGINE STALLS, IF I LEAVE THE REST RESTART IT BUT 30 MINUTES 15 MINUTES LATER HE HOLD AGAIN


Not clear on the issue. If the engine is stopping when hot, you will need to figure out if it is fuel or ignition related to proceed.

put a OBD II code reader on it see if it has stored any codes if not replace the TPS sensor and the MAF sensor do the replacements at different times so you don't buy one or the other for nothing

2001 dodge grand caravan stalls


Check the sensors on the throttle body. There is a sensor that controls air to fuel ratio. If that sensor is bad then the car will run and then stall out while in drive. I had the same problem when it was cold outside last winter. If you dont want to dish out the money without knowing if it is that part at fault or not then start the van pop the hood and located the throttle body. Place your hand on the sensors and give them a little shake and then make sure they are plugged in all the way. You could also turn the van off and unhook the sensor clean the connectors and plug it back in. That should do the trick and if it doesnt stall anymore then I would replace those sensors if I was you. One more thing. If your giving the sensors a tug while the car is running and you hear it going to stall you could located the gas pedal cable and give it a rev or two by hand so it doesnt stall out and turn off. By the way. You van isnt over heating at all is it?

2000 caravan 3.0 stall after 20 min no spark restarts few hours later


This sounds like a bad (probably cracked) ignition coil.

First, the coil gets hot when operating, and this is normal.

If it is cracked, it gets hot to the point where its resistance gets so much higher that it cannot provide enough voltage for spark.

When it cools back down it starts working fine again.
