Having problems with your 2000 Dodge Caravan ?
2002 caravan ec, on acceleration, once warmed up, van sputters and loses power. Let up and accelerate slowly and you regain power. Also occaisionally jerks forward at stop light, and will sometines 'grind' when in reverse. (Sounds like you put it in PARK while syill moving)
Sounds like an ignition miss, Probably has an ignition cable arcing, I'd try and scan the computer for codes, you are looking for a PO300,301,302,303,304,305,or306. If you have any of these I'd start with plugs and wires. The grinding in reverse could be the low reverse planetaries, drop the trans pan and inspect for debris/metal on the magnet, if it looks like a chia pet, replace the trans with a reman unit.
