Always remember when taking off where was how was, putting back the wrong way, breaking or damage. Kable, you put back the wrong way.

SOURCE: my 2005 altima idles high and engine code

Your Altima will require an idle air volume learn after cleaning. This procedure will set your idle speed. If the code keeps recurring after the IAVL your throttle chamber may need to be replaced.

Dodge caravan dies when in gear

Vacuum leaks. ( hissing noise around the engine). Tune up (plugs and wires). clean the throttle body(inside of it). All these can cause rough idle. The dieing can be from transmission problems. Can you rev the van up and keep it running while in gear? Or does it die then too? You can replace the solenoid pack on the outside of the transmission for around $250, if you do it yourself. If you do this, DO NOT get any dirt in the holes of the transmission where the solenoid pack sets. Clean it well before you remove the old pack.

The van revs up to about 2000 rpms when at an idle in gear or not but dose not do it all the time.

First eliminate all vacuum or air leaks in the system. Make sure the mechanical throttle linkage is not sticking.
You may have a bad IAC ( idle air control) but try cleaning the throttle body first. Remove the intake snorkel, have someone hold the throttle wide open for you and scrub the back side of the throttle plate and surrounding bore with an old tooth brush and some carb cleaner. Be sure to spray some into the small holes next to the throttle plate. That should help stabilize the idle. If it still has a problem, replace the IAC.

Where is the idle air sensor valve. is it easy to replace? 1992 dodge grand caravan 3.3L

Hi, the idle air control valve is on the throttle body held in by 2 bolts. You will need to remove the air ducts to access the throttle body. See picture for the location of the valve/motor. Sometimes the valve is just dirty or the passages blocked by gunk. When taking the valve out, try to save the gasket. After taking the valve out, check the passages and the valve itself for dirt/blockage. If it's dirty, try cleaning and reinstalling before you buy a new one. Use the old gasket, if possible.

When the temperature outside is 20 degees or lower the engine will not start. I have to push down on the gas pedal a liitle to feed it fuel, then it will start. Until the engine warms up it has a tendancy...

Your idle air control valve may be sticking. recommend you remove the valve and also the hose from the throttle body. Clean the valve, idle air passsages, and the throttle body using carb cleaner. Hopefully this will restore proper operation.

How do you get to the back 3 sparkplugs

The 2001 Dodge Caravan with the 3.3L has absolutly no clearance above the intake - I have replaced these by removing the intake and throttle body - be sure and place a cover, rag or something to prevent anything from falling into the engine. Rear plugs can then be accessed fairly easy. While intake is off, clean it by introducing a can of foaming engine cleaner - make sure all sensers have been removed before hand. Clean throttle body and idle solenoid with carburator cleaner. Idle solenoid can be removed for better axcess but do not remove TPS throttle position sensor - this is in direct line with the throttle plates. Wash out all carbon and gas deposits. Take your time with the gaskets and you will be greatly rewarded with improved gas mileage and idle control. When replacing the plugs, put antiseze on threads to make them easier to install and remove next time.

99 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 3.3L needing to replace the Idle Speed Motor on van. Where is it and how do you replace it?

Mounted on the throttle body with 2 Torx screws (I forget what size) and has a 4 way conncector if memory serves. Take the 2 screws out and it will come right out. Make sure the old o-ring comes off and the new one gets put in. Also clean out the throttle body with some intake cleaner while you have the IAC out.
