My 2005 Grand Caravan has been sputtering or hesitating while in drive but stopped for the last two days. Now today it was doing this more frequently and did twice backa backfire noise and the engine light...


You can take the van to Autozone, they will test the check engine light to be sure. More than likely you have a bad plug wire or plug. If a plug is not firing right it will not burn the gas, hence your rough idle and back fire.

Dodge Grand Caravan 2005 P0016 code


Im assuming it is an engine that uses a timing belt. It sounds like the belt has jumped 1 tooth. if it only jumped 1 tooth than the computer will compesate the timing so it is possible the sensors will say they are ok. If it is a motor that uses a chain than it problaly needs a new gear/chain set.
