#136 of 227 Problems with 2003 Dodge Caravan
Mar 24, 2009 (9:46 am)
My 2003 Dodge Caravan is giving me some problems. At times, when I turn the car on, it will run just fine until I come to a full stop. When I come to a full stop and try to accelerate again the engine shuts off and the oil light comes on. In order to fix this problem I have to turn the ignition again. I've checked the oil and that doesn't seem to be the problem. I've replaced the battery and it worked for 2 weeks, but it gave me this problem yesterday as I was leaving home and as I was coming back from class. This problem only happens every so often and only happens within a few minutes of starting my car. Could it be because I'm not giving my car enough time to warm up or could this be another problem?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

A few points:
1) The oil pressure light comes on because the engine stopped (when the engine stops, so too does the oil pump), not the other way around.
2) The warm-up time is irrelevant. In fact, you should never "warm-up" a car for more than five to ten seconds, even in the dead of winter.
3) The very first thing you should do is to take your car to a shop and have the OBD-II codes scanned. Most likely they will point to the problem (like an oxygen sensor or a cam position sensor).

Thank you for your suggestions on resolving the issue with the 1996 Plymouth Voyager. The symptoms I am having is exactly what you have explained. I have cleaned and sealed the coil and cam sensor connectors, but I could not find the connector at the bottom front center of the engine. Can you give me a little more details on where is this located?
Your help is greatly appreciated!!

We have a 96 3.3 liter van that stalls when you put it in gear. It starts in park or in neutral. I have replaced the throttle position sensor and manifold sensor in accordance with the error codes and trying to make some sense of voltage readings received with same.Any input would be appreciated since we are fed with the maintenance problems on this vehicle and local mechanics can not help with this problem.Thank you!
#140 of 227 2002 Chrysler Voyager EC stalling at complete stops
May 10, 2009 (7:52 am)
hi, I have a problem with my engine stalling when I'm at a complete stop. It always starts right back up and only stalls when I'm at a complete stop, such as at a stoplight or stop sign. It only stalls when the air temp is at a certain temp that I can tell. I first noticed problems last fall, then during the winter I had no problems with it at all. Now that it's warming up, it's beginning to act up. I first noticed it acting up again after I used the air conditioning for the first time this season. Also, it idles rough, and if I am driving for a while, it starts to run rough, and if I press on the accelerator, there is a lag time before it speeds up, it acts as though it wants to quit. sometimes when I am pressing on the gas and I come to a stop, it jerks. No one seems to know what's wrong with it. Any help would be much appreciated.

Sorry, I have not got the answer on how to resolve. I have done all the things recommended. Cleaned and sealed the wiring harnesses. This is after replacing the cam sensor twice at the recommendation from diagnostics from my local mechanic and the Chrysler dealership.
It is a real shame, because if my car wasn't having this issue, my wife would still be driving it and most likely until "the wheel's come off". :>)
If I get any positive result or suggestions that work, I will certainly let you know.
