2000 Dodge caravan "fetching up"

My Dodge 2000 Caravan just came out of the shop (broken tire rod). I drove the vehicle home (2kms) and parked it. A week later, I hop in, turn it on and put it in reverse. It fetched up and wouldn't move (forward or backwards). It feels like the emergency brake is on but I have pressed and released it several times. Any advice? I've checked my fluids and everything seems good to go.

When they replaced the tie rod or when the tie rod broke, it might of damaged the rubber line on the brakes. It wont leak, but inside of that rubber line it may of collapsd causing the brake fluid to apply the brakes but wont release the fluid back to the resivor.

Ran out of gas other day leaving work, grabbed a gas can out of shop. Didn't realize there was diesel fuel in there. Not much, less than 1/2 gallon. Drove about 1/4 mile and van died. Had to tow it home....

you are gonna have to purge the diesel out i would think. most likely its still in the fuel lines. is there a pressure test port on the intake? if so cover it with a rag and vent the line a few times after pressurising it up by turning the key on

I have a 98 dodge caravan - when filling up recently, I noticed gas leaking from just in front of the tire below where you fuel up. I drove it home from the gas station (aprox .5 miles) and the leak h

It sounds like a leaking filler hose. Not uncommon, and not a big problem to fix, although getting the old cracked hose off and a new one installed can be a dirty and frustrating job. After investigating, you may find a previous owner had once pulled the tank off and just forgot to tighten up the filler hose clamps. , as if fantasy could ever come true.

did you change it yourself. if not i would guess the shop did something wrong and call them to fix the mistake free of charge. also did they do an alignment after changing the rack. that needs to be done to not wear the tires out in miles.

How do you remove the tie rod from a 2000 dodge caravan

Depending on inside or outside tie-rod i'll go over both. Outside tie rod step: 1:Jack vehicle and remove tire
2:Loosen jam nut on tie rod, this is the nut directly behind the tie-rod.
3:remove cotter-pin on castle nut of tie-rod,remove nut.
4:turn the wheel completely to the extended side so that the tie rod is stretching out and you can get at it with a hammer. If doing driver-side turn wheel all the way to right.
5:Hit the nub that the tie rod is bolted to not the tie rod it will take some swinging. but you'll know when you have broken it free it will pop right out.
6:marking a spot on the shaft that the tie rod is on or leaving the existing jam nut as a marker to thread the new tie rod on. this can effect your alignment angle.
7:using a wrench or vise grip thread the tie rod off and the new one on.
8:Put new tie rod on and bolt down.
9:dont forget to install cotter pin good luck.
