Its not bad if your attempting your self make sure you release fuel pressure first the filter is most likely mounted under the vehicle probaly pass just in front of the rear tire one side has the line from the gas tank the other has the feed to the regulator the lines most likely un screw from the filter on the fuel filter it will have a arrow telling wich way to install inlet side is the tank side outlet line to front of vehicle goodluck

Hesitating could mean a bad spark plug, wires or if the fuel filter hasn't been changed in a long time, check underneath the vehicle along the fuel line from the gas tank and see if there is a filter. Usually it is either near the rear tire well area, or near the engine, if not it could be one that is inside or near the gas tank itself. Also have a pulsing test done on the injectors to make sure there is enough pressure and electric to them.

You have also tried replacing the Mass air flow sensor. How does it run with it unplugged? You can also get all your symptoms and the MAF code from a plugged catalytic converter.

Hesitates and cuts out when I accelerates, shakes and sputters!


Fuel filters are cheap and simple to change, so try that first. If that is not your problem it may be your catalytic converter. Before having that replaced, check your fuel return line. You should be able to blow thru the line with your mouth. If you can't, or it's really hard to do. . . then you have blockage. The blockage could be flooding your engine with fuel. Checking the fuel pressure with a gauge from an auto parts store may help you out. If the pressure is really high, then that may be your problem.

2004 dodge caravan 2.4 Hesitates during Acceleration and at idele


You should definitely replace the fuel filter though this probably won't fix your hesitation. It wouldn't hurt to replace the spark plugs this is usually the culprit on these engine. I have the same engine in a '99 caravan and found the for some reason the spark plugs on cylinder 3 and 4 loosen up after one year and cause a misfire between 45 and 50 mph under load (when mildly accelerating).

How many miles on it? I know Impalas had a problem with the catalytic converters getting clogged. A clogged cat will give the same symptoms. No or little acceleration.
