If you have spark, squirt some starting fluid in the carb...remove the ait filter. If it starts and dies, the carb is gummed up and needs a cleaning. If no spark could be points, kill switch, oil switch etc.

As for checking for a spark, remove the plug from the engine, plug in to lead, then rest it somewhere convenient, with the threaded end to ground. (ie touching the chassis or frame)
The low oil indicator may be on the side of the engine, but I'm not certain.
If you discover that the spark is good, it could be a timing problem.
If there is no spark, it's probably the magneto.
I hope that helps.

2003 caravan: malfunction indicator light came on while driving about 2 miles from home . engine oil down 1/2 qtTrans. Fluid OK. Gas filled up 40 miles ago. I notice a slight soft put put noise


You said you engine oil was low 1/2 quart? was it just changed? or does it use a little between changes? Sounds like a mis fire which would have to do with sparkplugs, spark plug wires and the coil pack. I have owned a 97 grand caravan.I know yours is the next gen but drivetrain were just about the same. I had a few fuel injector wires that would cause a mis every now and then. The check engine light will be the key, There will be a code stored in there that will guide you to your answer. If you have 100,000mi on it. Its time for a tune up.As for the 1/2 quart on the oil, sometimes "lube service" Fills to the full line on oil stick. The oil filter will hold just about a 1/2 quart. So if "Lube service" did not account for this, after you start your van and check the oil it will show just shy of 1/2 quart. I would suggest getting the engine code first (mfi lamp)

I have fire and gas but will not start oil alert light on when crank


By fire I assume you mean spark at the plug. When turning the engine over with the key and the oil alert light comes on the spark is interrupted by grounding the system thus the engine cannot start.
First, look at the obvious things, check oil level if it is at the recommended level smell the dipstick if it has a strong smell of gas
change the oil and try to start it again. Be sure the plug is not soaked with raw fuel before you try the restart. I the problem persists you can disconnect the wire from the top of the low oil sensor.Try to start the gen. if it starts change the low oil sensor.
I hope this all makes sense to you , good luck with it.

Recheck the engine trouble codes (reset any in history), then try to start it again. Check any new trouble codes - probably an ignition module or ECM problem.

Check your ignition, sounds like you are not getting fire. Also check to see if it has an instrument that want let it start if the oil is to low. It could have Malfunctioned. Also double check your oil and make sure there's enough in it.

These type of gens have a low oil shutoff. Check the oil. Always have spare spark plugs, a cheap fix. My gen always wanted a new plug every year. Look to see if it has a fuel filter.

Will not start. May need a new spark plug. What size is it?


it should say on the side of the plug very carefully hold the coil wire about a 1/4 inch away from the head or other metal object and crank it and see if it is firing be careful and dont get shocked and make sure to stay away from gas tank and gas fumes and if it sparks chances are it is the plug

and check the oil level because it has a low oil shutdown switch and if it is out of oil or low it wont start

Most times your looking at some sort of safety device that won't allow the engine to start.Especially after all the work you've done.Check for an electrical connection that would sense oil level,they are the most common and are designed to shut down the engine because of a low oil level.What it does is grounds out the ignition or spark output.I hunted around for something on your gen set but because of it's age there's nothing available.So this is all I can do for you.Last but not least,your local CAT heavy equipment dealer services your gen set.Hope this helps?
