I am having issues with my 2003 dodge grand caravan. It was running rough and wouldn't hold idle. The check engine light was on and it was for the ignition in cylinder 3. The spark plugs and wires were replaced and the check engine light went away. Now, it runs good on the top end but it sputters badly at idle particulairly in the morning. It will die out frequently at idle. A lot of black carbon out of the exhaust pipe as well. I'm not sure if it an airflow restriction or and idle selenoid. Any

Running "rough" My 2001 Chevy Venture currently has 108K miles on it. Today, it started running rough, feeling like it was about to die during idling and taking off very slow, running rough and bumpy. At around 20 mph it seemed to get smooth and normal. My instict is to get the spark plugs, plug wires and distributor cap changed as it feels like misfiring plugs, but I'm not certain.


I had the same issue with my venture. It turned out to be the number 5 plug wire, backside of engine ended up breaking out of the plug carrier and burning in half on the manifold. Your best bet is to trace all the wires to start off with and change ... 2001 Chevrolet Venture

I have a 1994 dodge grand caravan. It starts up and runs great every morning. But after driving for an extended amount of time, it will just all of a sudden run like ****. It sputters while idle and if I press on the gas it acts as if it wants to bog out and die. If it does die it will start right back up, but with the same symptoms. And if I leave it sit long enough it will drive just fine. It almost acts like its overheating. But the temp is at normal operating range.

Hi I have a 2001 dodge stratus r/t and im having a problem with the idle. In the morning when i first start it up the idle is rough and it has to warm up so when i put it into gear it wont die, but after its warm the idle seems to settle better after running. It only bad when its cold and when i first start it up. What can be the problem? A few people told me that the throttle body needs to be cleaned most likely. Can that be the only problem?


Other things to try could be fuel injector cleaner. The fuel filter may be clogged as well. ... 2001 Dodge Stratus

I have an Audi 80 1.8 petrol 1989. The car starts from cold with no trouble settling to a normal idle speed. However as you drive for a mile or so and come to slow down the engine dies to a extremely rough and lumpy running - barely above a stall. Pressing the accelorator produces no revs and the engine ''hunts'' firing only on a one or two cylinders. Eventually the car will start again and as long as the revs are kept high it will drive again, although when the revs go lower the engine dies aga

My 97 Dodge Caravan starts fine, but then will not have power for a minute or two. It is like it misses or almost backfires, and will only move at a idle speed at best. It might die if I push it. After a minute or two it kind of catches and runs normally. This especially happens if I stop at a store for a while and try to run it when I return. Any ideas? Thanks!

1999 Dodge grand Caravan 3L Often when I start the engine it will start running very roughly. I smell fuel that it isn?t burning and the lights and fan will dim in sync with the engine?s rpms going up and down. When the engine has been running for a while it goes away only to return sometimes from a cold start... and we repeat the whole thing again. I have already replaced the Air Idle Motor so that?s not the problem. This has stumped every mechanic I?ve taken it to. Any suggestions out there?

My 2000 Mitsubishi Galant starts hard and idles rough. Sometimes it almost dies when just starting in the morning or randomly when I'm going slow in a parking lot. It also acts like it's not getting a steady flow of fuel when it's going up and down hills. It kind of chugs. The check engine light is on constantly now. It used to turn off and on. It also sounds kind of like a unlubricated gear or belt or something when idling. It usually runs a lot smoother in neutral at stop signs.

I have a 2000 dodge grand caravan with the 3.3L engine and it seems to have what sounds like or could be a blown head gasket. It starts, but will not idle. runs rough, so badly that it wont stay running.


Pull the oil dipstick and see if you have a lot of bubbles in the oil. If your head gasket is blown you will have coolant mixing with oil causing the bubbles. If you don't see the bubbles, you may still have a bad head gasket but should consider tha ... 2000 Dodge Caravan

I got a 2000 Dodge Durango 4.7L and 140 K miles. Couple of days ago the engine knocked and the engine light came on, the computer said it was probably caused by the timing chain streched of jumped.Another symptom is that the engine sounds and seems to run good, but while sitting idle, it won't start knocking or stalling until it warms up (average idle speed 600-700 RPMs, normal?) But I also heard the transmission having problems shifting down can cause the engine to stall and die while slowing d

My 2003 PT cruiser's engine light came on, then the car started running extremely rough. It became so bad, I had to pull over. Sitting idle, it seems to idle a little rough, but when I gas it gas, it would rev up the die down, then rev up and die down - sorta pulsating. I just checked the code for my 2003 PT cruiser by using the run-off-run-off-run method and it came back with a code p 0340. The code chart indicates a misfire in cylinder 4. Does that mean I need to change the spark pulgs? What's
