I recently bought a 97 grand caravan 3.8l automatic. I am having a
stall in engine at cruesing speeds.
I worked as a nissan tech for ten years but I left the industry after
this war started due to poor buisness volume.
I dont have access to a good scan tool and not much time on my hands.
So any help would be apreciated.
I used the auto x-ray at O'reily's and found no active codes. I didn't
have but a few minutes so I didn't get to learn more on this tool.
Like does it have data monitore access? Will it read passed codes?
What I do know is it acts like a bad coil pack or module. It just dies
instantly and can restart instantly while coasting in nuetral. The
only constant I have found is cruiesing, hi or low speed doesnt make a
difference. It has done this many times a day and then go a day or to
with no problems. It will do it with a hot or cold engine, hot or cold
day, rain or shine. It dosen't get slugish and die it's an instant
die. It will restart on it's on sometimes when at hiway speeds just
because of the moment of the transmission I assume. I went to
dodgeforum.com and found several TSB descriptions I found as possible
relevancy but no access to read them, just a one or two line
description of it's contents. I am takeing the weekend off to get to
the bottom of this so a little steering in the right direction would
be helpfull. I guess I will start with a wiggle test on the harnesses,
but from there I just don't know. I don't have service manual yet! Are
the FSM's available in electronic formate for 97 models?
