  • 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.
  • 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.
    Thanks you
  • 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.
  • 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.

    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. :) :) :) :) :)
  • :( 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
  • Technical Description
    Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected

    What does that mean?
    Basically this means that the the car's computer has detected that not all of the engine's cylinders are firing properly.

    A P0300 OBD DTC code indicates a random or multiple misfire. If the last digit is a number other than zero, it corresponds to the cylinder number that is misfiring. A P0302 code, for example, would tell you cylinder number two is misfiring. Unfortunately, a P0300 doesn't tell you specifically which cylinder(s) is/are mis-firing, nor why.

    Symptoms may include:
    the engine may be harder to start
    the engine may stumble / stumble, and/or hesitate
    other symptoms may also be present

    A code P0300 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
    Faulty spark plugs or wires
    Faulty coil (pack)
    Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
    Faulty fuel injector(s)
    Burned exhaust valve
    Faulty catalytic converter(s)
    Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages
    Faulty camshaft position sensor
    Defective computer

    Possible Solutions

    If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.

    If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.

    Random misfires that jump around from one cylinder to another (read: P030x codes) also will set a P0300 code. The underlying cause is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold or unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open.
  • Thanks,I will look at the latter items first.

    When I come to a stop my idle drops down to about 500 RPMs while in drive. then I get check engine light on. In checking the code it reads P420 Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1). This light does not come on if I put it in Neutral when I come to a stop. In fact, the RPMs, remain at about 750. Can you please help me decide what is going on
  • Technical Description
    Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1)

    What does that mean?
    The catalytic converter has an oxygen sensor in front and behind it. When the vehicle is warm and running in closed loop mode, the upstream oxygen sensor waveform reading should fluctuate. The downstream O2 sensor reading should be fairly steady. Typically the P0420 code triggers the Check Engine Light if the readings of the two sensors are similar. This is indicative of (among other things) a converter that is not working as efficiently as it should be (according to specs). It is part of the vehicle emissions system.

    You will likely not notice any drivability problems, although there may be symptoms.

    A code P0420 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

    Leaded fuel was used where unleaded was called for
    An oxygen sensor is not reading (functioning) properly
    The engine coolant temperature sensor is not working properly
    Damaged or leaking exhaust manifold / catalytic converter / exhaust pipe
    Retarded spark timing
    The oxygen sensors in front and behind the converter are reporting too similar of readings

    Possible Solutions

    Some suggested steps for troubleshooting a P0420 code include:

    Check for exhaust leaks at the manifold, pipes, catalytic converter. Repair as required.
    Use a scope to diagnose the oxygen sensor operation (Tip: The oxygen sensor in front of the catalytic converter normally has a fluctuating waveform. The waveform of the sensor behind the converter should be more steady).
    Inspect the downstream heated oxygen sensor (HO2), replace if necessary
    Replace the catalytic converter
    One thing to note is that many vehicle manufacturers offer a longer warranty on emissions-related parts. So if you have a newer car but it's out of it's bumper-to-bumper warranty, there still may be warranty on this type of problem. Many manufacturers give a five year, unlimited mileage warranty on these items. It's worth checking into.

    I had a very similar problem with my '96 Dodge Caravan 3.3 liter. About 8 miles on the highway at 65 mph and it would lose power, if I waited an hour the problem was gone. I found that if I drove under 55 mph I would get no failure at least for the short distance I was traveling to work. MIL codes were 11, 22, 7,27,43 (misfire),61, there were some strange codes but the misfire stood out. I took it to two different said he wasn't sure, the other replaced the coil which did no fix the problem. Per previous comments this thread I replaced the crank position sensor, but that did not correct problem. I noticed in the repair manual that there is a also camshaft position sensor so I replaced that since function appeared similar to crank sensor. That fixed the problem. Fyi and thanks for all input.

    My 1996 Dodge Caravan can not be inspected because the "on-board computer
    is not compatable with the state's inspection computers". When you run the
    reguired tests, the process quits and machine reads: TEST ABORTED. Do I need
    a whole, new, more modern on-board computer or is this a fuse/fuse box fix that I should for?

    hi...I have an 04 Voyager..can anyone tell me if there is any difference in the suspension between this model and the previous model...I have access to aftermarket sway bars from the previous model and would like to fit them to my 04...thanks

    My 2007 3.3 ltr Grand Caravan with 42,000KM, has developed a whine that is not really loud but gets louder when hot & is quite noticeable when you turn on the A/C. The pitch of the whine changes as you rev up the engine. If on a steep hill (down) & put it in low gear to ease down slowly you can hear it quite loud. When I first complained, Dealer replaced the Alternator & idle saying the bearings were not good. Next they changed the A/C pump when I pointed out that it got louder when that clicked on and off. No change after either "fix". They say it really isn't that loud and is a normal thing. They contacted Chrysler and were unable to find any help there - it really isn't a problem (unless you are the one driving it!)... Today they took it in and to make me happy they took the trans. pan off, checked the oil & all components & found it was all good. No problems. No fix. Noise still there. Suggestions?

    My 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan just failed smog due to the EVAP leaks. Can you tell us what needs to replace? Is it a vacuum hose or is it a major fix.

    Thanks for your time.
  • I have a 2001 grand caravan and my interior sliding door buttons do not work. My keypad button does open the door. any ideas.

  • check your console on the roof. You have an on and off switch that is for turning the controls off to the sliding door as a child proof. I have myself turned this off and forgot I did so. When I took it in to get it checked out the service guy told me to chec k this switch. Hope this helps.
