1993 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 68,000 miles
I have a 1993 Grand Caravan ES and am the first owner. The car only has 68,000 real miles clocked. Anyway, I recently started having a problem starting the car and this came up all of a sudden. The car is difficult to start. After turning it over a few times (5-8) it starts but acts as if it were running on one cylinder. After delicately " pumping" the accelerator pedal it starts to run (and all around the car I get a white cloud of mist/smoke). Once I get the car running it runs notmally (well, maybe the idle is slightly rough). Fuel filter was changed.
Besides the difficult starting all else seems OK. This came up a few days ago, so I cannot say if fuel mileage increased etc. Besides I try not to drive it in this state.
I will appreciate your comments and suggestion. Thnaks much!
