I’m having a problem with my van. When I first bought the van it ran but the tranny had 6 things wrong with it and wouldn’t go above 35. It was in limp mode. Then I bought a 99 transmission because someone told me it should work. Well I got it in and now the van will start but wont stay running. The cooling fan comes on but then won’t idle. Codes for the map sensor and cooling switch come up. I’m lost now. I have no clue what to do next.  Any help would be appreciated.

After the AC technician finished AC repairs and recharge, the engine 3.3L  stopped running and a gas odor came from somewhere under the vehicle. Inspection of all gas lines showed no leaks. Fuel pump came on, but no fuel pressure present at the injectors. The scan tool showed a circuit problem with the No. 1 cylinder. Fuel filter is okay as well. Still no fuel present at the injector fuel rail.

I have a 2000 Dodge Caravan Sport, 3.3L V6 engine. I had brake repairs done, but the pedal is “firm” & hard to push and yet the van doesn’t stop as it should. I had the front pads & rotors replaced along with the rear drums, shoes, springs & one cylinder. The front calipers & master cylinder are about one year old. The emergency brake, which hadn’t worked since I bought the van, was tightened and now works. The brakes have been bled twice, and a test on the “booster” showed good pressure/vacuum readings. I am at a loss as to what to try next.

I have a 2002 Dodge Dakota 4WD and 3.9L. Driving yesterday, I stepped on gas and tach rose but truck didn’t go any faster. Check engine light came on and is still on. Tried manual shifting of automatic transmission and it worked. Now when in drive the transmission seems to slip for a little while from a dead stop but then is ok. Any ideas on the problem or what it may cost and where might be a good place to take it?
