Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 178000 miles
Engine goes out and power steering at the same time of course so you can't steer it to the side of the road. Couldn't be the alternator or battery, could it, because it wouldn't start back up later? Known existing problem with clockspring in steering wheel causing air bag light to come on and electronic door locks and overhead lights flashing. Have just lived with it since it's unaffordable for me to get fixed and too far past the clock spring recall. Am broke and now laid off too so am jobless and am afraid of mechanics taking advantage of me. I need the cheapest fix possible so I can get to job interviews. The longer I have to wait for an answer the worse the situation will be because I won't have the vehicle or internet or email to be able to get the answer because I could be homeless by then. Could the new problem with the engine going out on me have anything to do with existing electronic problems? Am afraid to drive it since it might go out on me again.
have the same problem?
