Engine Mechanical problem
1996 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 200000 miles
Engine is the 3.8 v-6.
when I drive the van over 65-70 miles per hour, it will bog dorwn and slowly die out.
no apparent reason.
while trying to start the engine it will show signs of flooding, rich mixture.
I let it set for 10-15 minutes and it will start vut with rough idle and higher rpm.
Shut it off and when it does start with smother rpm, I can shut it down for 5 minutes, restart and it runs great for several weeks if not months.
Smooth as silk otherwise, all other speeds below 65-70.
about yeqar ago the dealer replaced the (cam shaft speed sensor) and died the following day while going to work. Still no apparent reason.
because it does not do this when it is in the shop, they never find anything. Even the computer does not show the problem.
still no ryme or reason.
I am not loking to sell van.
need it only for one more year, then it can go to the junk yard if needed. Lol
have the same problem?
