1999 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 120, 00 miles
My van was fine, I drive it back and forth to work 70 miles a day. I was low on gas and stopped at a red light. When I pushed the accelerator the van lunged forward died. I thought OK, ran out of gas. But when I tried to start the van nothing worked. Like the starter was out or my alternator died. Towed it home, added a couple of gallons of gas; charged it up and nothing happened. Ok I thought starter, but the starter works, my boyfriend hooks up a wire from the battery to the starter and it turns over but won't catch. Checked the fuses, they work, could it be a relay? He also stated that he never heard the fuel pump kick in. He says that while trying to start it fuel is coming out (pressure being built because it squirts out somewhere?) Earlier that day, I hit a speed bump a little hard did I do something? Please help! I'm sorry but I'm not a car person, I keep the oil changed and basic needs for it but hopefully anyone might have an idea?
have the same problem?
