    Hmmm, that's odd. While our Gen3 1998 DGC does not have traction control, our 2003 DGC ES does, and it works perfectly fine, even from a stand-still, even if only one wheel has any traction. I think I'd get a second opinion were I in your shoes.

  • I have a 95voyager, it recently dies on me and am geting rid of it. I have a full tank of gas in it and want to get it out. this is my problem, i own a syphoning pump used for putting in the filler neck and pumping the gas out. the hose will not go in the tank that way because of the "check ball" or overflow ball in the neck prevents this.
    My question is, what is another way to get the gas out of the tank besides though the filler neck which wont let me??

    I've been told by a DCX technician (who just happens to work on vehicles after hours, including ours) that the caravans are notorious for having the window motor/regulators go out. They get a "short" in them and don't work for a while then they work all of a sudden. We just had ours replaced in our '02 GC for 180 dollars, including labor. The new replacements motor/regulators have a larger gear on them and a shorter cables. From what I was told the motor does not have to work as hard and they have not had any issues with them yet. Good luck!

  • I have a 1994 Dodge Caravan SE it has a bad shake in the front end I have replaced the axels, struts, driver side motor mount and tranny mount. Now the shake is still their I am trying to find a motor mount for the passenger side its bad and I am being told that will cause the shake but all the after market ones have a 7/16 through hole for a 3/8 inch bolt. Mine has a 9/16 hole for a 1/2 inch bolt and I can find one anywhere the dealer even says he cant tell me if the one I could order from them at $105.00 will have a 9/16 hole has anyone had this problem and what did you do to fix it :mad:

    Have you checked your tires? You may have a bad tire on the front. I had an 86 Chrysler Laser that I bought used. It had a bad shake in the front. I had the car checked out and the mechanic did not notice anything unusual. Rotated the tires and the shake was gone. Turns out that one tire had a bad belt in it. Try rotating the tires. It may help. Good luck.
  • yes i forgot to put in i got new front tires & Wheels
  • where do I begin? My engine blew at 52,000, the automatic doors work when they feel like it, the brakes constantly need adjusting, the suspension rattles, DO NOT BUY
  • shiposhipo Posts: 9,152
    So, in those 52,000 miles, how many times did you have your oil changed? What was the longest interval (in time and miles) between any two oil changes?

  • The problem may be the catalytic converter checked. It could be that it is clogged up.
  • I have a 1996 Grand Caravan and the problem that I am having is that it won't shift out of second gear. It tacks about 4000 RPM at 50 MPH. The transmission has been rebuilt but wont shift out of second gear. Would changing the shift selinoids make any difference?
  • I have a 1999 Dodge Caravan. It has four engine mounts -- front, rear, left and right. I need to replace the rear and front engine mounts. Mechanic tells me the parts are dealer only, and pricey. Trying to find them online on the cheap cheap, but everyone seems to have only the left and right. FYI, the left and right mounts are sometimes referred to as "right-front" and "left-front." But these are not the true front and rear mounts. I need the rear and front. Any suggestions?
  • shiposhipo Posts: 9,152
    "I need to replace the rear and front engine mounts."

    What makes you think you need to replace those engine mounts? I have a 1998 with the 3.8 liter engine with over 134,000 miles on the clock, with the factory engine mounts still in place. I just recently inspected all four mounts, two of them off the van, and they are all in excellent shape with no apparent wear.

  • Hi Shipo,

    They are actually cracked.... which reminds me... I forgot to put in my last post ... I need the bracket that bolts between the front mount and the block. This one is real hard to find. No one seems to stock it except the wallet-biting dealership.
  • shiposhipo Posts: 9,152
    Hmmm, I'm not sure what has caused your mounts to fail so early, however, I do have a suggestion that will be substantially lighter on our wallet. Have you called a bone yard? If you have either a 3.3 or a 3.8 liter engine, I'm betting that you can probably get all four, brackets and all for $100.

    Give it a try and let me know how it works out.

    Best Regards,
    Shipo

    I have a 05 dodge caravan 6cyl automatic 50000 mi.
    The gas pedal sticks when I first start to accelerate. Sometimes at a stop I have to stomp on it so hard that the van lurches ahead. It only sticks at the top of the pedal, its fine once I'm pass the sticking point. Anybody know the cause of this and how to resolve Thankyou
