The fuel pump problem was diagnosed on 11-27-96, however, the van had been towed into Dodge dealerships on two prior occassions, beginning 11-11-96. Initially no problem could be found. The van had died while driving on the interstate. About two weeks later, the van died again in city traffic. Spark plug wires were replaced. The next day the van died again in city traffic. Ultimately, the fuel pump and filter were replaced. Each time the van needed towing to the nearest dealership. On 10-14-99, the van made a popping noise while being driven at 40 mph on a country road. I stopped the van and discovered transmission fuid leaking from under the engine. I called a tow truck and had it taken to the dealership. There had been no warning prior to the pop and subsequent leakage. The dealer reported that the transmission needed replacing. There were no obstacles on the road that may have resulted in the problem.

Fuel tank dripped gas when filled to top. Tired of taking car to dealer and out of warranty anyway, I ran tank empty, dropped tank and found loose hose fitting in top of tank. Fitting was loose. Cleaned it up and used sealant and reinstalled. Concerned about the flimsy way fitting was fastened to plastic tank. You could just yank it out without much effort.
