2002 Dodge Caravan • 6 cylinder FWD Automatic • 95,000 miles
Whats going on? When I first start the car for that day it will start just fine. However when I put it in reverse it will stall or when I stop after reversing and put it into Drive it will stall. This happens about 75% of the time. Otherwise it backs up and goes just fine.
The codes are for the fuel supply system. A small leak was detected and a "gross" leak too. The most common cause is a loose gas cap. If you have those codes erased and they come back, check the rubber hoses under the vehicle between the gas tank, leak detection pump, and engine to see if any are cracked, disconnected, or the clamps are loose. Small leaks are almost impossible to locate visually. There is a "smoke machine" that you can use to inject white smoke at 2 psi, then you can watch to see where it sneaks out. Without that machine finding small leaks is near impossible.
