I have 98 dodge grand caravan. It started to overheat when driving… Period. We replaced the thermostat… Did oil change and replaced coolant in radiator…. Then replaced the cooling fan relay. The check engine light was still on, but no codes show when the auto parts guy hooked up the tester, and the ac still wasn’t blowing cold air. If you check the fans with 12v they work. So we ordered an ECM online and followed the directions to change the computer. The van stopped overheating and the ac blows cold. However it started having a whole different set of issues…. Throttle wasn’t responding.. Jerky…sounded like it was misfiring… And then got to the point where it was shutting down at an idle, and did not want to drive period…. in 2 days time of changing the computer. My husband put the old ECM back on and the new problems ceased and we are back to the overheating. The fans did not run with either computer unless we wired them directly to a 12v.

We are a single vehicle family with 2 toddlers and the heat indexes have been 100° + and I am terrified of taking them anywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

I replaced condensor , evap, condensor and dryer today. Flushed lines, did not replace O tube. Pulled a vac and added a can of 134. Low side was 25 and high was 175, started on second can when pressure went too high. Recovered until low was 40 and high was 250. Inside air is not blowing cold, a/C line after O tube line is cool to touch and has some condensation and line before O tube is hot to touch. Not sure where to go with this?

my charger has been making an awful noise under the hood. The best way for me to explain it, is it sounds like a stock car or bad muffler in the engine. When you accelerate, it gets much worse. Well, I know for a fact that its not the muffler, because its localized under the semi cover under the hood. Then, when you turn off the engine, it kind of sputters and shakes and clicks a couple times. Hoping you can help me with a possible idea of what you might think that could possibly be. Its very abnormal, and would just like some advice. Thank you

Just did plugs and wires yesterday and the check engine light comes on now. The check engine light only comes on when you put it in first gear and start to accelerate, but the truck does run smoother.
