Having problems with your 1996 Dodge Caravan ?
I have a 96 Caravan 3.3 the engine dies at a red light or just at idle after it get hot... Normal Hot. As long as your going it does fine or in the winter time it never dies... Something getting hot and shuting the engine down.. Replaced All electrical parts.. Coil.. Plugs... Wires... Coumpeter.... Crank & Cam Sensor..... Any help ?
Take a hard look at the (ECT) engine coolant temperature sensor on the engine. The location for the sensor is just to the right side of the thermostat. To test the sensor on the engine use an ohm meter to do test. With the engine cold remove plug from sensor and connect the testing leads to sensor (do not let the two leads touch one another during test). Test should show 7,000 to 13,000 ohms. and when the engine has run and got hot retest it again, the reading should be 700-1,000 ohms. If any of this test is wrong then replace the sensor. Hope this will help you.
