I have 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan. I have similar problem. My van run OK most of the time, but every few days while I am driving, it will stall. It seems like gas doesn't reach engine. Most of the time it restarts immediately. On few occasions, it will start after 20-30 minutes. I took it to the dealer, but he could not figure out the problem as it is not easily reproducible. Any help will be appreciated.

Your issue with the "service engine sson" light is that for most error codes, a scan tool is needed to reset the code after the repair. Most parts stores will do this for you if you bought their part. Some codes will reset after many engine off-restart cycles. I do not know what years have the off-on-off-on-off-on code display capability.

You might find a troubleshooting repair manual for your van to see several possibilities. They include fuel problems as well as electrical ones, the latter being more common. I would start by carrying a timing light so when the problem occurrs I could easily check for presence or absence of spark. Maybe a mechanic friend could loan you one. Roy

Not saying this is your problem but all of these new vehicles seem sensitive to loose/bad ground connections. Try cleaning and tightening the ground at the battery and at the engine. Even if it doesn't solve the problem, it's good PM.

Aug 25, 2006 (11:58 am)
In June of 2005 I had to have my transmission taken apart and fixed. I had to take it in 3 times before it was fixed. The problem was I lost power and could not go faster than 20. With help from the Daimler Corp. it cost me $540. It would have been $1900. Well....Then July 2006 I was getting stuck in 2nd gear. They replaced input and output sensors. $230. They told me my engine mount was broken also. I had no money to fix that. 2 weeks later the same problem was happening. Back the car dealer...They said they fixed it and I had them fix the motor mount also. $340. Oh, and my air conditioner was leaking on the passenger side like forever...they fixed that too. About 4 days later the car is sticking in 1st and 2nd gear. Its in the shop now and they cannot find out whats wrong with it. I'm without a car again this weekend. What is going on? I've spent $1100 since 6/05 on a 2002 car. I think Daimler is going to get another phone call from me!!!!!

There goes my transmission again !!
We've had our 99 caravan worked on as in the previous post (msg 4120)...just picked it up on July 29,2006.
Well the latest problem (August 25,2006) is that the van won't go past 1st gear it gets stuck. We're going to have it towed into the dealer again hopefully I'll hear good news....like they'll replace the tranny if you can even call that good news.
Does anyone know if there's ever been a recall on the dodge caravan for transmission problems....I've noticed that alot of people have been having problems with them according to the forum.
I'll keep every one updated. Thanks for any help or suggestions.
#4175 of 4276 01 window motor replacement
Aug 28, 2006 (8:33 am)
This looks like is should be easy enough, but I've one question : should I have the window all the way up and taped in place before swapping out the motor ? (It's on the passenger front.)
