Having problems with your 1992 Dodge Caravan ?

My 92 dodge caravan 4 cyl. dies after running five minutes.

\015 It won't restart until its cold. The codes say 12, 53, 13, 55. 53 is internal controller failure. 13 is map sensor. Do I really need to replace both of these? Is there some other explanation?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 25-10-2021

Answers :

Having seen many a ("Hall Effect Pick-up assy.) Or know as pick-up plate in distributor fail intermittently, that's where I'd go first. If engine starts cold & runs, then just quits anytime after warming up & driving, then you sit & wait for it to cool & it fires back up. $20-$30 should do it. It's under the distributor cap & easily replaced. That's provided you have that particular system. I'd replace that, remove battery connections to erase codes and start fresh & see what comes up after, if anything. Check this link, scroll down to Fig #8 and see if it looks same under your distributor cap, if yes, change it.
