Dodge had a problem with he distributor bushing wearing out allowing the distributor shaft to wobble.
I have replaced several distributors in dodges for that reason.
If you hold pressure on one side on cap and it runs fine and quits when you release distributor cap the distributor will need to be replaced.

I have a '03 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport AWD that the heater only blow hot air when going down the road. Van has a new radiator and new thermostat. Sometimes the blower will not kick on for a few


If the problem is a lack of air flow from the vents, and you suspect the blower motor is not running at times, you would need to test the blower relay and blower motor for power and ground when it is not working.

Van died well going down the road.


If I am understanding this right it is totally dying while you are driving. I am going to assume that it turns over at this point but does not sound aas if it is getting gas. If this is the case you have one of two or both problems. The fuel pump or the fuel relay. I would start with the fuel relay.

1984 dodge van has power to the coil but not from the distributer, and it doesnt start. van ran fine until the positive post came off while driving down the road, it just died and hasnt fired back up...


Does the coil produce voltage? I know it has power to it, but is it throwing voltage? if so check the coil wire at the distributor. if power is reaching the distributor but not throwing spark from any plug wires, your problem is a bad rotor and or cap. Or bad wires.

Ram van dies


sounds to me like the fuel pump is bad, when it warms up it dies, try to check this by filling the tank and running a while, then run the van with a near empty tank and see how it does. A full tank of gas should keep the fuel pump cool as it is surrounded by the liquid. I had a similar problem. when my tank got to about a quarter full (3/4 empty) the van would shut off after a short distance, then after sitting for a while would start up again get me a little farther then shut off again. i ended up changiung the fuel pump cost me almost $300. if this simple test shows no results the you got electrical problems, check distributor, and surrounding cables. good luck. also check your fuses could be dirty!

1994 dodge caravan, 2wd, 3.0 engine


12 - battery recently disconnected. 21 - Oxygen sensor signal doesn't change (stays at 4.3 - 4.5 V) possibly bad O2 sensor 37 - Transmission temp. sensor reading low.
There are many options that can cause these problems, but loose wiring to the battery and a weak alternator would be one of the first things to check.
