That's definitely not it, then. I bet this is vacuum/emissions related, but I really don't know how to pinpoint it. Will it happen when just the engine is revved to 5200, or only under the load conditions you described above? I would think a shop would have diagnostic devices they could hook up to the vacuum system to see if it is behaving as it should.

#13 of 18 1992 dodge caravan, idle problem
Feb 06, 2010 (4:57 pm)
Hello, I have a 1992 dodge caravan 3.3 L V6 that won't maintain it's idle. The car starts but won't run unless I keep my foot on the accelerator. I also noticed there was water coming out of the tail pipe (that may just be condensation, it was cold out)... I am worried the head gasket may be blown. Please Help!

Your first order of business is for a cooling system pressure test and a cylinder leak down test. If you have a blown head gasket one or both of these tests will result in a positive. Short of those two, do you have coolant in your oil and/or oil in your coolant? Either would also indicate a potential head gasket issue.

I have a 2007 GC, it has 123K. It is still supper clear. but lately, I noticed that the engine jerks on an rpm between 1000 and 1500 and when it is on the highest gear. Anyone has any idea what it might be?

Just a follow up to the original topic (eh-um):
After 3 years, 105,000 miles, 13 visits to the dealership, 3 star cases opened with Chrysler, the dealer has finally solved the problem. They "hard-wired" the crankshaft position sensor" and now the original problem is solved, but not before it ruined the catalytic converter. Apparently, a misfire condition left unresolved will damage the catalytic converter requiring a heft repair bill. While Chrysler refused to pick up the tab for that, they did cover the CPS repair, whilst I had to deal with it for nearly the last three years. Now I've written the dealership and they say they will pickup the tab for the CC. Still, I don't think I'll ever buy a Dodge/Chrysler ever again after having been through the wringer on this one. A person should not have to beg a company kicking and screaming to make things right with the customer.

I am experience the same issue. It started few months ago, the engine just shuts off on the road. It happens when the van runs steady at about 40-60 km/h with no up an downs. Never happened when idling. Rarely happened on the first trip in the morning (when cold), most likely to happen on the second one.
Went to the dealer, unable to reproduce it, and no codes were stored in the PCM. They have suggested to replace the sparks and clean the injectors as well to upgrade the software. Problem still persists.
tee10, what do you mean by "hard-wired" the CPS, have they ran another set of wires between the sensor to the PCM, because of a faulty wire/ connection problem?

My problem was finally cured when they hardwired the CPS - I guess they ran another wire between the CPS and the computer that bypassed all the other connections. I'm not totally sure, but that is what they called it "Hardwire the crankshaft position sensor". Dealer: Lopp Motors, Dodge City.
