20 Most Recent 1994 Dodge Caravan - Page 9 Questions & Answers

Several things could be causing this, I had a caravan and the shuddering I experienced
was due to a worn out front motor mount, (the CV axles had already been replaced)
Mine also had a fuel line leak at the flexible gas line from the tank to the solid line
on the chassis. I would definitely inspect the fuel lines first for any cracking.
Hope this helps.

Three things come to mind. You may have an exhaust system leak. Or, the rear hatch is not closing good, or not sealing properly, allowing exhaust fumes to enter the rear compartment. If you drive with the rear windows open, the exhaust fumes will be drawn into the vehicle while the vehicle is moving. Just some ideas on where to look for the source of the fumes. Don't take the problem lightly. The fumes can be deadly, or at the very least, make you ill.

im having the same problem .. did you ever find out what was causing it?

2nd gear is the default when the computer sees a problem,when you restart it is cleared. I thought the clearing procedure was key on engine off,depress throttle fully 4 times within 5 seconds.
If it clears when you restart I would think that a good sign,at least it's not a hard fault.
Most likely a control solenoid in the module mounted on the front of the trans-axle.Serviceing the tranny would be a good start ,wouldn't get it flushed ,just drop the pan and change the filter.

Sounds like a fuse to me. The fuse panel is under the drivers side of the dash. Sometimes they "pull" down toward you. You will want to reference the manual for the proper fuse location. It should be a yellow fuse (20 Amp.) The fuse will be burnt and the metal inside melted and split if it is bad. Let me know if this helps.

Remove the transmission pan, change the tranny oil filter & adjust the low-reverse band. Any chilton or haynes manual gives the tolerances & step by step procedure to effect repairs. You will need approx. 7 qts. of tranny fluid. Hope this helps. Good luck!

when the check engine light comes on it sets and stores a code
there are over 300 codes of possible codes
what you need to do is take your van somewhere and have the codes read (most major parts stores will do this free of charge )
give us the codes here and we can help you more
my best guess with you saying car shaking is you have a misfire but without codes that just a guess in the dark

The recomended tire size for your van is P205/70R15. Most tire shops can get thos if they dont maintain them in stock.

Hope this helps =)

I had this happen to me getting on the highway one day. I ended up replacing every fuse in teh panel and the ECM to get it running again. I don't believe it was an ECM problem, it looked like the company I had install an alarm in the car had not spliced a wire in properly and that wire came free and shorted the main fuse bus to the ignition circuit. By a mix pack of fuses, about $3, and replace every fuse in the panel and see if that corrects the problem.

4.5 quarts of oil. It doesn't really matter what brand you use as long as it is the right side. The auto part store keeps the log book in the area of the oil. You can look there to get the right size. Walmart has the same thing but it is through a computer database that is usually in the oil aisle. If you need anything else crazt b$#[email protected], let me know. I am here to help. Have a good weekend.

did your vehichle completely run out of gas , if so after adding gas , it will take a short while for pump to pump gas to engine, also if you have a owners manual, look in it and look under fuel, to see if it show s a fuel reset button, if so, you will have to push the reset button to reactivate the fuel pump. sometimes , they are loacated at the right or left rear in side, or under the the right side of instrument panel.
