Re: caravan breaks

you might have to use a scanner and check to see if there is a brake bleed procedure for the ab s accumulator.

bleed the brakes manually. hook up the scanner and go to the abs section. Under the miscellaneous section there should be a place to bleed the brakes for the HCU. After using the scanner to bleed the HCU do a manual bleed again. that should get you going again. (all other conditions being normal. why did you replace the master to begin with?)

Re: Valve springs

make, model, year and engine...

does your engine use hydraulic lifters? did you soak them in oil to fill them up prior to the install?

what does your engine use to build up oil pressure? you may have to prime the oil system to get the lifters pumped up.

need more information

Dodge Dakota

I have an 02 Dodge Dakota got home the other day turned it off went out the next day tried to start it but no start it cranks but I'm not getting any spark and I'm not getting any fuel up to the motor I replaced the starter coil pack that wasn't the problem thinking that went up that might have been the problem of why I didn't have any Spark

Flashing light on rear window defroster makes climate panel inoperative.

The vehicle is a 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT. 110,500 miles. The blend door actuator was clicking when I turned on the A/C. My local mechanic (not dealer) installed a Dorman actuator on the driver's side. The clicking stopped, but now until the rear defroster light stops flashing, the A/C will not work. When it does work sometimes cold air comes from the passenger vents, but hot air comes from the driver vents. Turning the A/C off and on a few times restores cold air from both.

Coil pack

Got a 2005 Dodge ram 1500 4.7 v8. Had my breaks looked at recently, was told front pads have about 30% life and rotors had scratches most likely due to foreign object. However, on the left front side, I am getting a very metallic grinding noise when breaking, could this be from just a worn rotor? or maybe the caliper needs to be realigned?

Dodge caravan knocking

My dodge caravan is knocking. Theres aluminum in the oil pan. What do I do?

Re: replaced timing chain

I know you said that you triple checked the timing but is that rotating the engine and then verifying the marks all line up in the correct positions? Does the engine sound normal when it is cranking?

you can also scan for code P0016. see if the computer sees a mismatched cam/crank correlation.

did you make sure that you didn't let any of the camshafts or the crank move independently of each other? (they could move slightly for sprocket installation) Could cause valve damage...

do not hold the target wheel on the cam to remove of tighten the cam sprocket bolt. that could also cause a no start condition. here's a pic of how the bcam sprocket bolts should be removed and re-tightened.

1992 dodge dynasty 3.3L

I am stumped! I have a 1992 dodge dynasty 3.3L and have been working on it all week. I have been searching the net everywhere for 2 days and can not find the fix for this car. So here's the problem a friend was driving along and the car stalled out and it will crank, but will not start back up. I have replaced the ASD, cam and crank sensor, the coil, the computer deal on the passenger side fender wall (sorry cant remember what it was called), checked all fuses and relays under the hood and inside of vehicle. I have looked over all the wires and connectors all seem to be ok. When I turn they key over the oil, fuel, and check gauges light comes on and all go off except the check gauges light stays on. I tried to get codes doing they key switch on and off and it does nothing. I took a cover off of the asd relay and held a metal tester tip to it and the fuel pump will kick on, but still will not start. Theres no spark at the plugs or coil. I tried replacing with new ones also. I was going to order ignition switch next. If anyone could send me in the right direction for this fix (besides taking to a shop or junkyard) I would appreciate it very much. Thanks!

2006 Durango 5.7 Hemi rough idle/ETC problem

I have a somewhat common issue 06 Durango 5.7 hemi that has the following codes. It all started while driving and it died all of sudden with a flashing ETC light. It now will start but the rpm jump up and down from 700-1500rpm in any gear with little throttle response. The engine will not get over 1500 rpms driving but it seems the pedal is responding to pushing it but no response. I took it to the dealer and they were confused and said it appeared to be a PCM issue and wanted 2k to fix it. I have replaced the PCM computer from a mopar programmer with vin/mileage and a used throttle body with the same response thinking it was the TPS that was attached to it. I am at a loss and don't want to replace the pedal positioning sensor that's 200$ before dropping another 200$ at another dealer to troubleshoot.

Please help the codes are as follows.

P0520 Oil pressure switch (replaced in July 2017 but the oil pressure light is back on now)

P0335 Crankshaft position sensor (Replaced last month but the code is back on again)

PP2111 Throttle actuator control system (Replaced throttle body same code)

P0642 sensor reference voltage A

P2122 throttle pedal position sensor/switch D

In a similar thread a Dodge mech said to replace the oil pressure switch again since they are on the same harness and can short each other out. does this sound possible and can either of these sensors cause the rough idle and lack of throttle response?

Any help is greatly appreciated.


2001 Dodge Stratus ES 2.7L Keeps Blowing IAC Valves

I've got a 2001 Dodge Stratus ES 2.7L which I purchased new. The check engine light came on recently and although the car still runs just fine, the error code indicated that it was the Idle Air Control Valve (IAC). Not wanting to spend the $169 for the part that the garage I brought my car to wanted to charge me, I decided I'd rather just change it myself as it's easily accessible and only held on by two bolts, as well as being able to clear the code once the problem is gone.

I went to the auto parts store and picked on up (AC333), but after installing it the car wouldn't run. When I pulled it back out, it was obvious that the part was defective as the brass cap on the end was extended by about 1/4" and the spring was exposed. I put the old IAC back in and returned the part to the auto parts store where they agreed the part clearly was defective.

I next went to a boneyard and pulled an IAC out of another 2001 Stratus I found there. The car didn't like that one either, idling a bit high (around 1200 rpm) and when the engine was reved to around 2000 rpm, there was a hesitation of 3-5 seconds after I took my foot off the gas before the idle would come down again. After 3 days of running the car with that one with no improvement, I took that one back out and put the original one back in.

I then ordered one from an auto parts dealer off of eBay (AC165, which is a replacement for AC333). When it arrived, I installed it in a warm engine, and that that one did the trick, as it brought the idle down to around 650 rpm, and the engine responded properly when I took my foot off the gas. Then next morning though, I was surprised to find the engine wouldn't idle when first started. I had to keep my foot on the gas for a few minutes until the engine warmed up. Then the engine would stall out when I stopped at lights, and even stalled when I took my foot off the gas on the highway. So, it seemed I'd gotten another defective IAC. After I managed to get back home, I took that one out and put the old one back in and the engine runs fine again, other than the check engine light coming on and refusing to be cleared.

So, my question is could there be something other than the IAC that is causing the problem, like an incorrect voltage being sent that has affected these other IAC's, or are these replacement IAC's that are made in Mexico not made to the same specifications that the original IAC's were made to...?
