Engine Performance problem
1997 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 206000 miles
Engine starts and idols OK but with normal acceleration it "pops" or "chokes" out. It can however be driven with a very delicate increase in acceleration to get over the rough spot.
A code check of the computer puts up an O2 sensor #2. Could this be the problem? This problem materialized out of nowhere. Turned of the car after an average around town trip and it wouldn't start. Seemed to be fireing but wouldn't start. We trhen bypassed the air filter(disconnected the air filter and let full air be ingested) and it seemed to start easier. But still has the acceleration issue. Tried spraying throttle body cleaner in the Plenium, no change.
I am told it could be the map sensor or the part on the plenium? (Throttle body module)
have the same problem?
