#4255 of 4276 1996 Dodge Grand Caravan Loses all Power While Driving
Oct 12, 2006 (5:41 pm)
I have a 1996 Dodge Grand Caravan with 146,000 miles. Today I was driving at about 35 mph and the car lost all power. The gas peddle, and steering wheel were locked like if the ignition was off. I pulled over,turned the key off then on, and the car was fine. A couple of days ago the auto door locks would not unlock. Could these two things be related? Anyone know why it lost all power while I was driving? I like to have some idea before taking it in.
#4256 of 4276 Engine Insulation - can it be patched or replaced
Oct 13, 2006 (10:03 am)
I have a problem. I just moved overseas and had my vehicle shipped here. Unfortunately a weasel like animal sometime along the journey, climbed into the engine compartment and tore part of the insulation away from the wall that seperates the passenger compartment from the engine. I found out when it started smoking the first time I drove it - needless to say I was terrified thinking the car was going to start on fire. Now I am afraid to drive it even though I have pulled all the loose pieces out of the engine area and cleaned it all off - can I replace this stuff or is there something that I can use to secure what is remaining so it won't fall onto the engine block starting the smoking or a fire all over again. I honestly don't know if this stuff will start on fire but I am too afraid to take the risk - this is my only vehicle at this time and I really could use some help since I am going to have to take it to a German Chrysler dealership for any type of repair. I don't want to get taken advantage of, nor do I want to burn up in a ball of flame on the road. Help please??

what is all involved in repacking the front wheel bearings in a 88 caravan? what the van is doing is a lot of road noise and all I can think of is front bearings if there may be another problem please let me know. Thanks for your time.

If your front wheel bearings are making noise, the bearings are already beyond help and need to be replaced. Repacking them cannot repair a damaged bearing.
However, other things could be contributing to excessive "road noise" such as tire problems, CV joint issues, etc.

I have a 2001 grand caravan, I have approx 44100 miles on it-I'm looking to purchase an extended warranty from a reputable dealer where i can bring it to get serviced at a dodge dealership. Any body able to provide me with dealers either online or not that have great prices & great coverage.

I am not sure you can buy a Chrysler warranty at this point, given your vehicle is a 2001 model. However, several Chrysler dealers sell warranties over the internet. Check out: www.chryslerwarrantys.com
