  1. 2nd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1991-1995
    Hi everybody, long time 2nd-gen owner here. My first ever car was a 1993 base model short-wheelbase Dodge Caravan 3.0 FWD with the three-speed, which met an unfortunate end while someone else was driving it. The replacement, and my main ride for the last ten years has been a high-trim 1992...

    Hello I have been fighting these issues since i bought the van 3 months ago any ideas would be appreciated. I have two issues and I think they may be related but I cannot find the problem(s). 1. When starting the van it will crank for up to 10 seconds before starting. If I prime the engine by...
  3. 4th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Hi Folks, So I picked up a 2001 Town and Country 3.8 a couple of months ago when on the same day my wife's expedition blew a motor and my Explorer lost the transmission. Van was running awesome until about a week ago when it started feeling like it was missing while sitting at stop lights, I...

    First time Poster here, What I have is a 2000 Grand Voyager with the 3.3 Flex fuel motor. For some reason it will not idle unless I have one of the vacuum ports on the intake manifold open. As soon as I put the plug back on it, it will not idle. I have had it to a mechanic that tell me according...

    Van won’t idle when engine cold unless the gas pedal is depressed. The engine dies as soon as you remove your foot from the pedal – seems to happen more easily when going uphill. Gas tank is ¾ full. Replaced fuel filter but that didn't help. Running car around neighborhood until engine warms up...

    Hey guys, I'm new around here, but from what I've seen it looks like there are a lot of good people with great suggestions floating around. Already searched existing threads and, though people had rough idle problems, none helped me out. So here's whats up: I have a 2001 Chrysler T&C 3.8L...

    . My 2003 Grand Caravan Sport would stall just after starting (backing out of my driveway), or at a traffic light taking my foot off the brake then by the time my foot got on the accelerator it would also stall. Taking a slow corner, at low RPM (500-1000) same thing. Sometimes the Tachometer...

    Hey guys...I have a 2011 caravan crew. Just bought it at 26,000 miles from the dealer. I've noticed whenever it gets a cold start it has a somewhat rough idle, nothing too nasty but its definitely noticeable. When it starts from cold the rpms shoot up to about 1500 and slowly drop down back to...
  11. 3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    Hello everyone, first post here sadly under not so good conditions. So here goes. I have a 97 Caravan 3.0. Installed a new fuel pump about 5 months ago. About a month ago it started stalling only when coasting with a throttle closed position. I pulled the throttle body off and cleaned it...
  12. 3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    Ok so first off, maybe a couple weeks ago before I changed out the radiator, I noticed a sort of high pitched whining kinda noise comin from the back of the van while I was idling. It also did it if i just turned the power on with the key. I figured the pump was on its way out. Now today, after...
  13. 1st Generation Chrysler Minivan: 1984-1990
    I need help. I have a 1989 Plymouth Voyager 2.5L Turbo minivan with just over 107k on it. Awhile back I had experienced a great deal of issues with the engine holding an idle. If I slowed down to come to a stop sign/light, it would stall and I would be forced to "double pedal it" where ever I...
  14. 4th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Hey all. My 2002 3.8 (111k mi) was idling rough, so I searched and looked for the usual suspects: plug wires (ok), plugs (replaced with 4-electrode plats), removed and totally cleaned throttle body, checked for vacuum leaks (ok), pcv valve (good). Same idle. Yaaarrrrggg!!!! Any other idears?
