    1998 3.3 v6 113,000 miles on it. runs beautifully, no oil consumption, starts at 20 below zero, but! about once every 300 to 500 miles it will shut off when decelerating, and getting down to low speed. it will start right back up and run perfectly ok from them on or once in a while, it may stall again but then run for another 300 miles just fine. No check light, and no codes. Had throttle body cleaned, and fuel filter replace, new battery also. Help!!

My 1996 3.0L Caravan was stalling at idle, at stoplights, and around corners. Check Engine light would come on intermittently. The on-off-on-off-on computer code 52 (System driving fuel mix too lean DTC P0172) flashed. The first time, I fix it by getting a new battery. The second time, I fixed it by replacing the MAP sensor. Try disconnecting the MAP sensor to let the computer use default value. Then reconnect it to see if it runs better or worse. I simply replaced the MAP sensor and it has been running very well since.

Sounds like idle air control valve, a 4 wire connector and two screws on throttle body.

It could have overheated. run out of gas. stayed locked in high gear and stalled as it stopped. You did'nt say if it would restart? You did'nt say what engine? It can have a 2.4 liter 4 cyclinder a 3.0 liter V6, A 3.3 liter V6, or a 3.8 liter V6. It can have a 4 or 5 speed automatic transmission and the 4 cyclinder can have a manual transmission as well. It can be air condidtioned and problems with it can stall the motor. the battery can be low or dead and thiers not enough power to run the brake lights and the fuel pump both so the engine shuts down. It might restart if you turn off everthing and certainly the defroster and anything that uses electrical power.

When the temperature outside is 20 degees or lower the engine will not start. I have to push down on the gas pedal a liitle to feed it fuel, then it will start. Until the engine warms up it has a tendancy...


Your idle air control valve may be sticking. recommend you remove the valve and also the hose from the throttle body. Clean the valve, idle air passsages, and the throttle body using carb cleaner. Hopefully this will restore proper operation.

1988 dodge mini ram stalls


Porbably not getting enough gas or dirty. My 88 dodge caravan did that too until I put a cheap fuel-injector cleaner in with the gas, and started giving it more gas even in lower gears driving around town. Worth a try...

Stalling on our 96 Dodge Caravan


Once a filter plugs its pluged. You drop that much pressure its time for a new fuel pump.
