I have a 93 dodge grand caravan 3.3L 222k miles that up until last week ran like a top. Last week on highway one afternoon began lurching suddenly, throttling down not up on acceleration, then lurching into gear, then out, and so on. Thought the dreaded tranny death had finally come but took it to mechanic who replaced sparks and cleaned throttle and suggested possible water in fuel, to use high octane. The sparks seem to actually fix it which suggested not tranny, but a few days later it was back, the chugging and breaking down on the road thing, popping sound, slowing to a crawl, holding up traffic, hobbling it home to get it worked on. I am told by autozone that possible fuel filter or more likely since intermittent a clogged fuel injector (both of which they tell me are easily replaced). However I am unable to find the filter under the car to replace it! Something tells me this may be more serious and I notice elsewhere mention of ignition, battery terminals, computer elements, etc.
Any help with locating/installing the fuel filter just in case that is all there is to it?
Any experience/ideas re what the prob may be? The car has been well maintained and runs beautiful.
Ran beautifully that is before I probably broke it.
