Check your PCV valves and make sure that they are working.To check pull it out of the valve cover and hold your finger over it there should be a vacuum.Also look to see if there are no cracked or missing vacuum hoses.Also it might be that you have a bad fuel pump.

EGR sensor replacement


EGR valves were a common failure item for the 05 Caravans. Ours died at 42k miles.

The sensor and valve are serviced as a unit. Expect to pay $150-200 to have it done, or you can DIY or less than $100.

HELP... CODES FOR 1996 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN SE. CODES 12, 22, 11, 44, 55. WHAT DO THES MEAN AND HOW TO FIX IT.


11- no start since battery disconnected.
12- battery has been disconnected recently.
22-Coolant temperature sensor, bad connection or faulty.
44-signal to smec (engine computer) was interrupted, or is not present.
55- is end of codes.

What exactly are you experiencing as far as starting and driving goes.
The only code I see right now that I would worry about is the coolant temperature sensor, if you are experiencing poor running, starting etc.
The signal to smec, may have been a one time thing, if vehicle runs.
