Question about 1999 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

Service engine soon light came on soon after I had a fuel injector replaced. The last 2 months I have put 2000 dollars into my 1999 Dodge Caravan. I checked my gas cap and it did not resolve the problem. What would you suggest.

You first need to tell us what the error code (s) is. The injector and gas cap are two completely different issues. Get it scanned and come back with that information.

What is code p017.2 for a 2002 dodge caravan

This is the closest I've come to the code you are looking for. I searched all Dodge codes and didn't see any with a "point 2" but I found code P0172. According to your fuel mixture is probably too rich. This is what the site had to say:

Possible Causes for this Code:
- Faulty front heated oxygen sensor
- Ignition misfiring
- Faulty fuel injectors
- Exhaust gas leaks
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- Faulty Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor
Read more:

This code is detected when:
- Fuel injection system does not operate properly.
- The amount of mixture ratio compensation is too large. (The mixture ratio is too rich.)

Read more:

Possible symptoms:
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Excessive Fuel Consumption
Read more:

P0172 Dodge Code Description:

With the Air/Fuel Mixture Ratio Self-Learning Control, the actual mixture ratio can be brought closely to the theoretical mixture ratio based on the mixture ratio feedback signal from the heated oxygen sensors 1. The Engine Control Module (ECM) calculates the necessary compensation to correct the offset between the actual and the theoretical ratios.
In case the amount of the compensation value is extremely large (The actual mixture ratio is too lean.), the ECM judges the condition as the fuel injection system malfunction and light up the MIL (2 trip detection logic).

Hope this helps!

I HAVE A 1999 Dodge Caravan, driving along 10mph engine stopped running, would not start after stopped. Replaced crankshaft, camshaft sensor, coil pack, fuel pump, checked fuses, relays, still no start,...

Did your Check Engine or Service Engine Soon light come on? If so, there is an error code (Diagnostic Test Code or DTC) stored in your Caravan's onboard computer. Have the code read and interpreted, and you can google the results to see which system triggered the code. If no light came on, you may want to check your fuel filter, spark plugs, distributor cap, rotor and breaker points/inductive pickup (depending on how the engine is equipped). Other possibilities include carburetor or throttle body injectors malfunctioning. Many possible causes, but the DTC route is easiest to check. Good luck.

Have you ever put in the gasoline tank any fuel injector cleaner yet because your injectors which injects the fuel of gasoline, if the injectors are not injecting enough fuel into the piston chambers that the fuel injectors needs to be clean to allow enough fuel to come in so go buy injector cleaner at autozone and put the whole thing into the gasoline tank and then drive. Your fuel injectors are clogged or going serious bad on you so you might have to replace them as well but first try to put fuel injector cleaner and see.

Service engine soon light is on 1999 Dodge Caravan. What does this mean?

there is some fault that the engine's computer is documentig, and you need to get the code by having the car's OBDII (on board diagnostics) port hooked to a scanner,
this can be done for no charge at most retail auto supply stores-write down the codes and post them on here for help.

144k on the 1999 dodge caravan and getting a check engine light, Connected code reader and got generic code p0300 "random/multiple cylinder misfiredetected" What now?

Replace the spark plugs and plug wires unless you have already done so. Also check all vacuum hoses for leaks. After doing this post back if you still have the same issue. Remember to replace the plug wires or vacuum hoses one at a time as to not get confused. This will more than likely solve your random misfire. Reset the light after the repair with your scanner.

Dodge cummins won't start, fuel reaching injector pump but no fuel coming out of injector pump.

You said you have fuel flowing from the inlet line of the injection pump? But not at the injector lines?
