Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 18500 miles
a month ago we found that our van would not start (in our garage). We found that the oil was very low almost nothing, and it was very dirty. We placed some oil in it and the Van started. The next morning it started and we took it in for a complete oil change, filter change. The Low Oil warning light never came on so we did not realize it was leaking. The ABS light has come on from time to time for a year. Anywayk, we have be driving it for over a month now. My husband checked the oil a few days ago and said it was good. I do not drive the Van everyday as I work from home. A couple of days ago the Van did not want to start at my mom's house. But it eventually did after about 5 minutes. I drove it to my home around the block and parked it in the garage.
The next day it would not start. All the warning lights come on even the oil lamp warning light, the ABC and Check Engine light. I checked the oil and it was a bit low but not to the minimum. I put more oil, but it still does not start. DO YOU THINK THIS HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE LOW TO NO OIL AND DIRTY OIL SITUATION THAT HAPPENED A MONTH AGO? Could that have caused damage to the engine even though it drove great for a month? Thanks
have the same problem?
