1993 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 252k miles
My 93 Caravan ran great/ well maintained.
It just start running rough/ idled slow/ hardly any power without pumping the pedal.
Worsened quickly(across town) no power/ if you hold the accellerator steady, it lopes/ dophins, and has a thumping backfire thru the intake.
I opened the air cleaner cover and it is sucking air like a jet engine! Loud roar. Never heard this noise before.
Puter code says O2/ replace it-not it/ replaced the ECG? Valve assembly, as per my mechanic. Nothing.
Gas pressure is good/ hoses are good.
BTW. The brake booster became intermittent/ because of the vacuum snafu I'm sure.
Now they have my engine top removed, trying to find the problem. Even the injectors. Tho I don't see a pressurized fuel system affecting the vacuum?
I need some help here before they decide to replace or rebuild the entire engine!
I mentioned the MAF(sp?) Sensor or the engine puter.I guess they didn't hear me. LOL!
HELP please. Ol'Ben
have the same problem?
