#2335 of 2391 Mass Air Flow Problems
Oct 04, 2008 (11:51 pm)
I have a Dodge Grand Caravan Sport 2003 with a 3.8L motor with about 97,000 miles on it. I had spark plugs, rotor distributor cap and wires replaced at about 60,000 miles. Lately I have discovered some slight rough idling and a lowering of rpms at idling and poor gas milage. In researching the causes of poor gas milage on other sites, I discovered that they talked about the MAF sensor as likely being the culprit. I watched a video at http://videos.streetfire.net/video/How-to-clean-your-MAF_80603.htm which gives a very informative way of cleaning it. I was wondering if anyone else had this trouble.
I also found out that the dealers go out of their way to do everything possible to get your money without fixing the problem. I learned this from veiwing comments located at http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4SNCA_enUS257US25- 7&q=mass+airflow+sensor+wires+cleaning and learned alot.
I started distrusting the dealer after I took my van in for the so called recall on the upper power steering hose. I never had any problem until they replaced the hose, then had whining noise, shuddering when sturning. They tried to get me to change the whole power steering components. After doing reasearch I discoverd the problem was in the contamination of the fluid in changing the hose. I had it back power flushed and it solved the problem. They still don't know how to do it correctly at the dealership. That is why I am asking if anyone else had this type of fuel economy problem?

I need a little help.
The short hose between the oil reservoir and the air filter compartment has cracked on my 2000 Grand Caravan with a 3.3L engine. My engine light came on and I'm hoping that this is the problem.
Does anyone know the proper nomenclature for this hose? Is it available from a local parts place like NAPA or Autozone, or will I need to go to a dealer to get it?
Thanks in advance for any help that you can provide.
#2337 of 2391 Rails for Front Drivers Seat
Oct 13, 2008 (3:02 pm)
Can the rails be adjusted for the Drivers front seat? I need to put the seat back a little farther than it is, same with the Passenger side? If it can be adjusted can you give me directions or diagram on what to do. Goint on a trip and need to be a little more comfortable.
#2338 of 2391 2007 Doge Caravan sliding door switches
Feb 08, 2009 (2:41 pm)
I have a 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan. Both power sliding door switches near the doors have stopped working. You can operate them with the key remote or the switches on the overhead console but not the switches on the door pillars. I have no idea where the owners manual is, my wife took it out for more room in the glove box. DUH!!! As far as I know everything else operates and functions normally. Any help would be appreciated.

Check your overhead console there is an on/off button to the left of the rear door controls.If this button is set to off the buttons on the pillars of the rear seats do not work.
#2341 of 2391 quiescent current - battery empties fast
Mar 05, 2009 (1:47 pm)
I have a grand voyager that discharge the battery when the car is not used.
It discharge quickly and when I measure the current from the battery when everything is off or appears to be off it still consumes 1.5-2 amps constantly.
I have removed all fuses and relays in the fusebox in the engine compartment and it still consumes this amout of corrent.
1. is this a normal level?
2. if not, where do I start looking?
greatful for any advice.
#2342 of 2391 2009 GRAND CARAVAN/TOWN&COUNTRY FEEDBACK
Mar 08, 2009 (3:30 am)
Just bought two of these (a Grand for me and T&C for my daughter). We both got the 4.0 with 6 speed and they drive perfect. I was a mechanic until 911 and these seem to be tight well built vehicles. Just wondered how eveyone else was doing with their 2009 GC and TC.
#2343 of 2391 Rear Lift Gate Parts
Mar 08, 2009 (10:02 am)
I had an accident and broke the rear lift gate outside handle on my 2002 Grand Caravan.
can anyone recommend an auto salvage yard or parts supplier that would carry a replacement part?
MoparPartz.Com has one of these listed but there is no picture, so I am not sure
If I am ordering everything I need.

Hi,I have a 96 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.8 ltr,148k . Code reads P0300...
It drives great on short trips but on longer ones it all of a sudden loses power and the service engine light starts blinking.It will regain power after a few but it runs rough and sputters(what's the word) it backfired a few times when this happend to my husband.
I have replaced the coil,spark plugs/wires,and the PCM..600.00 + and it's still doing the same thing.
It seems to be only when it heats to a certain temp..I don't know,I have lots of things on my list but I was hoping someone may be able to help me narrow it down a bit more.
Heres my list of potential culprates:camshaft position sensor,crankshaft sensor,
oxygen sensor,MAP sensor,fuel presure regulator, EGR and burned exhaust valve.
Really trying to save money on repairs and I do most simple repairs myself.
I have inspected all vaccum lines as well,they are ok.
Peace & Wellness
