Question about 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

2002 Grand Caravan rattling noise and then some

Bought our van new and now has 50,000 miles. I have taken our van in to the mech's 3 x's in less than a month. It started out because the van has a rattling noise when I try to go uphill and/or accelerate. It also seems to happen when it's real hot out and/or when the van has been used all day long. The mech has secured the exhaust shield, replaced the steering rack which now the van makes a knocking noise when I make a left or right turn. The have also secured the aft retention fuel cell because they said it was loose and making the rattling noise. Well, the rattling noise is still there and they are not taking responsibility for the knocking noise. They state that the alignment was done after the replacement. The knocking noise was not there prior to the steering rack replacement. Does anyone have any resolutions for any or all of these prob's? What would cause this rattle and now this knocking?..Any help would be very appreciated....Frustr8dInCt....

did this occour suddenly? if you can get someone to turn the A/C on briefly while your looking under the bonnet and look at the A/C pump. if you dont know what one it is wait untill they turn it on and find which pulley stops turning. because it sounds to me like your A/C pump has seized and if it engages and the pulley stops turning that would confirm it. once you know you can still drive it just dont turn the A/C on untill you get the compresser replaced

99 grand caravan--hear a knocking in front suspension--recently replaced both sway bar links-still knocks--is it most likely lower ball joints? 170k miles--love the van, still goes great


The knocking could be ball joints, control arm bushings, worn strut mounts or struts, missing or damaged spring isolators or a broken coil spring. All of these things are easily diagnosed once the truck is up on a lift , with the exception of the strut, since it cannot be tested unless it is completely removed from the vehicle. However struts should be replaced every 50,000-75,000 miles.

You should never buy any van type vehicle, in the first place,
the transaxle will fail any day.
I used to own a trans repair shop

Other then sell it,I would,I won't ride in one, not safe

Your correct,you should go 5000 miles and maybe use a 1/2 qt,
on most vehicles, none.

So you do a cylinder leak down test
Check Emission Gas Readings,to see what that shows
I suspect a broken oil ring,scored cylinder, broken piston
skirt or serious cylinder head issues.

Never go to a dealer. Calling or Visiting is okey
