1996 Dodge Caravan Wheel Drive Type unknown Automatic 211000 miles
I bought this van two weeks ago and its now giving me problems.
My question is can any one steer me in the right direction of finding the problem?
The van has been jerking, not all the times but the other night it did it several times when I drove it on the interstate and also when I was driving at lower speeds on regular roads. The engine didnt make any different noises the I was able to tell. It also has been dieing and not wanting to crank back up. It does it when I take my foot off the gas to hit the brake and also when I am sitting still and about to pull off like from a light or out of a drive way. My machanic had replaced the fuel filter and the oxygen sensor. When it died the last time, the check engine light came on and stayed on till I dropped it off at the machanic's shop and he couldnt get to it that night so when he went to look at it the next morning the light wasnt on.
Also when it jerked the last couple times it did something different. All this at the exact same time: it jerked, lost RPM(went from like 2 down below 1), and there was no resistance on the gas pedal. I could push the pedal to the flor and it did nothing.
I dont know if any of this makes sinse I tried my best to describe the problems to the best of my ability. If more info is needed to give advice ask me and I will try to provide it.
have the same problem?
