Hi there. Well first off I would like to describe the problem with my Dodge Caravan. Whenever I'm on the road, it would lose power and would shake like it would stall. Also, acceleration is too slow. I've been watching a lot of videos of what it could be and I got an opinion from a mechanic who just recently did a tune up on my car and said that it could be the AIR FLOW SENSOR. Now I downloaded the repair manual and there is no place where it indicates there's a MAF sensor. Some car advice places say Dodge has MAP sensor. I'm out of luck because I bought Mass Air Flow sensor Cleaner. I've been trying the whole day to do this, do it myself type of thing to save some cash and I'm afraid I might be unscrewing the wrong components. Where is the MAF or MAP sensor on a 2005 2.4L Dodge Caravan located? Is it built in the throttle body? Or is it in the air duct or in air intake? Please help, i'm going crazy here trying to figure this out. Thanks in advance.

There is a MAP sensor located on the manifold, but before you do anything I would suggest that you get any codes out of the ECU first, let me know what codes are set for further assistance.

Here or the locations for both 4 and 6 cylinder engines.

Check out the diagrams (Below)

Please let us know what happens.

Cheers
