Why does the Caravan shut down intermittently?
Hello, my car Dodge Carvan SE 2001, off after driving several miles, after waiting for 15 minutes I can turn it back on. The temperature gauge reaches the half.
Although it is difficult to tell what is happening by your description, I think I have a solution, or at least a place to start looking for a real answer.
I think your problem may be vapor lock. This occurs in aircraft more often because of altitude changes. If the temp gauge reaches half (on the gauge) that would indicate a normal operating temperature for most vehicles. A quick look at the instrument cluster will show most needles in the straight up position. This is by design so that when you see one needle pointing one way or another, you know there is an abnormal situation with just a glance.
If you are operating at the normal temperature, this may mean that one of your fuel lines, or fuel rails is being heated abnormally in the engine compartment. Perhaps a fuel line bracket is missing or broken causing a line to lay on a hot engine component such as the exhaust manifold or an oil line or a header or the engine block. You might also try wrapping your fuel lines in a heat reflective tape. Another suggestion is to fashion a heat shield under the carburetor.
However, you may have a different fuel delivery problem, such as debris in the tank, restriction in the fuel line or fuel filter, or tank pickup.
Here is an interesting article about vapor lock and it's prevention.
One more article on prevention.
I would be interested to know if any of this works.
I have the same problem before and I change to many parts , the last part I change is fuel pum and I no have problem anymore.
i have a 2003, and my folks have a 2005 both with v6 engines. I have had similar problems with both and it ended up being the crank position sensor both times
Check at the dealer. I got a recall notice that they will fix my problem for free. Mine stalls after getting fuel or at the very least hesitates bad then runs fine. If it happens after getting fuel it is most likely vapor lock and can be fixed at the dealer. I think its free as there is a notice on it. Since it’s not dangerous enough they only do it if you ask… so at least have them check your model to see.
only solution i find out is disconnecting positive terminal from battery and reconnect. It start like new car. I have change fuse box crank sensor fuel pump transmission but no one can figure out the problem. Plz let me knw if anyone figure out the problem
