Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic
I have a 99 grand caravan, very well taken care of by previous owner. Only 84,000 miles and mint condition in and out. It ran great for a few months and than bam - it started stalling and ran very ruff. A check up revealed low compression in pistons 5 and 6 on the computer. My mechanic did a compression test on piston 5 and it came up around 50. Could not get to 6 easily so we only tested 5. Told me I might need a motor, but after checking I heard it could be a few different choice problems and may be repairable. I called the Lakewood for a motor and they said those motors are usually good to 150 - 200,000 easy. Please, if anyone has any suggestions or possible solutions let me know. Thanks, inafix
