Question about Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

My 99 Dodge Caravan had it's water pump replaced on Monday, by Wednesday I was left stranded w/ a van that was freely rolling whether it was put into drive or park. At the moment I have to have the emergency brake engaged to keep it from moving at all. Could you please tell me where I should start looking for this problem...I am a single mom of 3 children on a fixed income & honestly can't afford to keep pouring money into something that may have been rigged in order for me to return to the shop. All help is very much appreciated!! Thank you

The transmission, i presume it is automatic.
the transmission engages a park mechanism that locks it and keeps it from rolling then, when you put it into drive it will take off and go.

Sure, have your system pressure checked. Worst case scenario, thermostat could be installed upside down or a bad head gasket. Also check for water in the oil or oil in the water. If you don't know how to do this ask at your local parts store.

Left front brake on 2005 dodge caravan locked up after a few minutes of driving. After it sat and cooled for thirty minutes or so it released. I replaced the front pads and rotors, and the left front...


Before getting carried away with more expensive fixes, I'd replace flex hose to caliper as well, and double check caliper moves freely while at it.

I have a 1997 dodge grand caravan with a 3.8L I replaced the radiator cooling fan relay switch and fuses but when idling for more than 5 mins. the van starts overheating


Water pump impeller could be bad or thermostat is stuck shut. I would change thermostat first,easy to change, cost under $10.00 Water pump is hard to change in this van, you have to remove right tire, then inside wheel well, then loosen 3 top motor mount bolts which will lower engine so you can get to water pump and tensioner.

Need serpentine belt routing diagram for 1994 Dodge grand caravan


3.3L?
Looking at the engine from front (right side of the Van): Stating at the Top, Going Left to Right and Clockwise:
Over the Alternator
To under the Idle Pulley,
To Over the AC Compressor.
To the Left Side of the Water Pump.
To the Right side and Under the Crankshaft Pulley
To the Right side and Over and Down the Tensioner
To Under the Power Steering Pump
And Back up-to the Left side of the Alternator.
Advise when puting it on:
Put the Belt around everything else accept for the Alternator. After it is around all the rest of the Pulleys - Pull the belt up - tight from the Power steering Pump and the Idle Pulley to form a loop, holding the Belt close to the Altenator Pulley.
Using the 15mm wrench or belt tensioner bar - rotate the Tensioner Pulley towards the front of the Van and then place the belt over the Alternator.
Let me know if this helped or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!
