My 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan mini van has a 3.3L engine. Early in March 2005, I had a difficult time starting the vehicle and the smell of fuel was prominent. Upon a search of fulel injection problems on the internet, I found NHTSA recall notice 00V268000. This notice describes the following problem for minivans with the 3.3L and 3.8L enginges: These vehicles have fuel rails with nitrole rubber O-ring seals that can degrade over time. Fuel leakage from the underhood fuel injection fuel rail could result, increasing the likelihood of a vehicle fire. I suspect that, although my vehicle is not in the recall, my problem is the same as the problem that affected the recalled vehicles.

Grand Caravan

  • miles
I have repeatedly taken the van in for repairs for fuel mileage and pinging under acceleration as well as rattling in the steering column, intermitant wipers will stop working intermitantly. The most resent problem is the vents on the drivers side of the dash board cannot be shut off while the heater is on, this causes my head to get very warm while my feet are cold. The wiper switch, body computer and motor have been changed at 4 seperate trips to the dealer and this has not repaired the problem. All of these complaints have caused the van to be out of service for 14 days at the dealer, none of the problems have been resolved.
