I have a 3.0L v6 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan. One day, I went to the store and parked, went inside and was gone for 10 minutes. I came back outside and got in the van, put the key in and turned. The van started up and it sounded lazy starting up. It fired for about 1-2 seconds and then died. I tried turning it over and it just repeatedly turned. It didn't fire up again and I had to walk home.
The next day, I had a friend come and try to jump it, because he thought it might be the alternator or battery, and it fired up again for 1-2 seconds then died and continued to turn on and on with no firing.
I've done some research, and I've narrowed it down to a few things, and this is what I've got.
I think it's definitely fuel related, so I think it's either a clogged fuel line, a bad fuel pump, the injectors need cleaned (or replaced) or the fuel filter is severely clogged. If not fuel related, could it be spark plugs or a blown fuse? Anyone have any idea what it could be?
have the same problem?
