Engine Performance problem
1996 Dodge Caravan 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 310000 miles
my wife has a 96 caravan, the vehicle has a very uneven idle, while letting the vehicle pull at its own power(not pushing accelerater) like going thru a drive thru, 9 times out of 10 it dies. It starts back up no problem. Recently when she turns on the air, heater, fan, and even the rear defroster the engine makes a high pitched squeeling noise, giving it some gas seems to make it stop. While driving uphill sometimes it starts jerking like the engine is cutting out, pushing harder and letting it drop to a lower gear fixes that to. I know that the smog pump is bad and can hear that rattle, but I dont know if that could cause all the other problems as well. It has 310,000 miles on the odometer, but had the engine rebuilt about 30,000 miles ago. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
have the same problem?
