Thank you for that, michaelGen5  That is actually very encouraging.


I "have" checked the fluid level on the dipstick - but you have given me a path to research now. Thank you.

#38888 Custom dodge grandcaravan

Posted by cwcustoms on 21 July 2015 - 01:39 AM

I am planning completely redoing mine. I own a custom shop in Northwest arkansas and am looking to get my name out there.I plan on molding a impressa front end onto my 00 gc and chopping the top behind the rear seats make it a truck with brat style bars on it ik it is stupid and pointless but I think that would show off what I can do just by the amount of fa bing required. I also plan on doing a ton to the interior, monitors game systems going to mold subs into the roof lamb doors on front and probably gull wing doors for the sliders ik it will probably look crazy but that's what I'm wanting just to make like a rolling catalog almost.

#38733 What's the widest Tire that will Fit?

Posted by awinnik1 on 18 March 2015 - 05:48 AM

it would be a struggle, but going for a 33x10.50 would be the most radical tire for the stock rim. be warned, thats already outside of the tire's "approved" parameters.

#38714 is it necessary to let engine run and warm up during winter ?

Posted by rrscott on 21 February 2015 - 03:12 PM

In the cold weather it is a good thing to let it run 3-5 minutes to get oil going through the motor. Specially real cold temps. One way is to start the vehicle and clean

it off or clear windows off.

#38706 2014 Caravan passenger heat issue

Posted by Burgman on 19 February 2015 - 06:12 PM



I purchased a 2014 Grand Caravan last Summer.  This winter when I attempt to adjust the heat(cool it off a bit) with my dual control, the passenger side now only blows heat.

It only affects the passenger side, the driver's side temp adjust works fine.  If I turn the air conditioning on, only cools air comes out the drivers side, passenger side stays hot.

Any input?  Been looking around on the internet and it seems several people have the same issue.  Van climate control worked fine all last Summer & Fall.

#38624 New member with '94 4+5

Posted by Hepcat on 01 November 2014 - 06:33 PM

Greetings folks, wasn't clear how to introduce myself but I guess by starting a new topic? I've had several used Caravans and Voyagers throughout the years and have always wanted a '94 with a 4 banger and 5 speed. I wasn't really looking for one but noticed one in the Bellingham paper so I looked at it and bought it. That was about 2 years ago and until now has been reliable and economical (28+ on the highway if held to 65mph). I seldom want for more power and it's very pleasant to drive-comfortable, great visibility, handles well. About a month ago the speedometer, odometer, fuel gauge, and coolant temp gauge all quit working. The cruise control continues to work well. I tried the circuit boar board re-soldering cure to no avail, so I ordered a new electronic speedo and quad cluster from Speedhut. Made a new dashboard of textured ABS and am looking forward to the new US made gauges. I'd be interested in hearing from other 4+5 van owners.

#38520 2014 Dodge GC R/T from N. GA.

Posted by TheDirtyGoatee on 29 June 2014 - 03:06 PM

Hey all! We just recently bought our 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan R/T from Carmax in Norcross a few weeks ago. We were giving up a 2009 Mazda5 5MT and a 2011 Chevy Cruze ECO 6MT because we no longer needed to be a 3 car household. 


The wife wanted a minivan and her compromise was to get the R/T (aka the Man Van). I liked the blacked out headlights, paint matched grille, and darker wheels. Carmax had a white one available but I found one at another Carmax with less miles, sandstone pearl, and cheaper so we had it transferred. It didn't come with the Convenience package which was a little disappointing so we're contemplating adding the UConnect stuff to the navi/touchscreen. That's why I'm here partially though, to find out things people are doing and immerse myself into the GC culture.

I'm a huge car guy so having a minivan was sort of a big blow considering I HATE automatics... it's whatever though because family comes first and we needed more space and since America is still very afraid of manuals (and diesel for that matter), I had to do what I had to do. If you Google my username, you'll likely find a smattering of information. I've owned a Mazdaspeed Protege, a Tacoma X-Runner, and a host of various other cars, most of which have been manuals. My 87 Colt Vista is my prized possession though. My grandmother bought it brand new in 87 and I was merely 2 years old when I first rode in it. Fast forward to today, my grandmother passed a number of years ago and now I am the second owner of the Colt Vista. Antique tags with only 104k on the odo. 

Here's the pics of the GC R/T. Hopefully this forum will be very useful to me in the future. 


Outside near the Atlanta Falcons Training Complex.





In the driveway




My last four vehicles have all had the four sticker motif. I continue that tradition. Looking for #4 as we speak.


Because you can't see it, the third one is the bottom INO decal. I have the palmtree one's so if anyone has one of the one's pictured above, I'd love to get a hold of some of those!

#38502 End of line?

Posted by hoosierrun on 03 June 2014 - 04:04 PM

Also it seems they haven't changed the body much since the current-gen platform was released, other than the engine, tranny and some electronics. Says something to have a platform that's stable and doesn't change all the time. 


I like that the 2014 body has remained the same.  It makes parts and accessories cheaper and easier to obtain.  So far I've added a few minor things using parts described from the 12-13 models.  I got a 3rd key fobik (2013 part worked OK on my 2014, but locksmith had to program it). I also got splash guards (mudflaps), a hood deflector, and wheel locks (all listed for 2013 models).  We put a hitch on it to install a bike rack.

#38403 stop the rust

Posted by btlflpztk on 07 April 2014 - 10:05 PM

Suggest the "Corrosion-Free" Formula 3000 (Rust & Corrosion Fighting Drip-Free Lubricant Gel) product as used by Canadian Military. Only problem is I won't rust out in next 20 years either! I have to wipe grease off my hands every time I go near my van. Eventually it will be cured of this after I wash the exterior, which I have not done since new as I want this stuff to keep creeping into all the body seams in warm weather. Sure wish I had done this ages ago to my previous van which did rust out, while otherwise being in great mechanical condition, a real shame. I don't think the new van (or anything) will ever rust with this treatment. I also got a spray can of same product to protect tools, etc. If you cannot get the Corrosion-Free product, the "Rust Check" premium "Coat & Protect" product is fairly similar and should do quite well. Both should be very carefully applied annually so as to not miss critical areas. I plan on doing every 2nd year. Good applicators use very long spray wands which will reach anywhere inside body panels through a few small drill holes which are later plugged. The stuff clings on as a gel and is amazingly dripless.

#38296 Hello from the Great White North!!

Posted by Dakota on 05 January 2014 - 01:07 AM

Hey everyone , Dakota here . I have previously owned 2 different Caravans but don't own one at the moment . It's time for me to get another vehicle in the next couple of months . My original plan was to get a decent Jeep TJ , but have just found out my wife's parents are moving to Nevada (20 hours away) and we will be driving there occasionally . My other vehicle is a Dakota 4X4 V8 truck , and isn't very practical for driving the longer distance to get there with my family , and getting the Jeep would be even worse . My wife has suggested another Caravan , to which I have agreed it would be the best . I will be looking for a 2001-2007 Grand Caravan . I have not owned this model yet , as my other vans have been a 1991 Caravan and a 1996 Grand Caravan LE . I am also not a stock person , and plan on making some changes to 'personalize' this vehicle . That's why I am here . I hope to pick the brains of those who have gone there before me . Some changes will be easy , like rims , but others will be a little more challenging . One of those challenges will be the stereo . Factory just won't cut it , and I will want to upgrade!! I am a GM mechanic , so I do have a lot of tools and abilities , just not a lot of Caravan knowledge . Looking forward to see where this will go .

#38201 Hello from New Mexico

Posted by bedajii on 24 August 2013 - 04:40 PM



Im new to the forum so i thought I would introduce myself. I have had ny 1991 dodge grand caravan for about six months now, though Ive only been able to drive it for four months before the fuel pump went out......JUst when I had started working on it....no biggie though! Finnaly got it replaced and realized why I do not go to mechanics.


They said they replaced my fuel relay....showed me a box of parts and a included was a ford relay switch...the guy had the nerve to argue with me and tell me that they replaced it (I know the relays work because I tested all of them to make sure it wasnt a relay...even went as far to number them so I would know what was what). Finnaly he went and talked to his guy who told him he got them switched up....looked under the hood...no new relay......


He offered to replace the fusible link to the cooling system when we finally cut a deal. I told him just take ten off the total so I can buy the fusable link I told him it needed in the first place. (he told me it did not need it, however Im the one that found the frayed and burnt wire...so I knew it needed to be replaced). I was thinking to myself, not a chance that I would let that guy touch my van again....


I like that I know what is wrong with it, and I dont need any surprise problems. Anyway got it home, spliced in the fusible link, changed the oil (getting the old filter off was.....not pleasant...I tore several holes in it before it finally responded!  I replaced the brake pads..that was fun..I put the lubricant on the wrong side of the brake though.....It ended up okay, and after this experience I can honestly say that I dont think there is much I will ever go to a mechanic for again. A customer at the shop I went to said they replaced her brake pads for $500....... for brakes? are you serious? I did my brakes for $27 and that was because I needed tools.......they charged me $800 for the fuel pump replacement (I would have dont it myself if I didnt have a full tank of gas :( )  I knew it was a rip off from the beginning because the part only cost $200, and thats for a premium pump.  I replaced my fusible link for almost a whopping $7.....I dont even want to know what a mechanic would charge for labor for that..after all you have to remove the windshield cleaner reservoir to get to the wire.....





So.....that has been my adventure so far with my new van, and to be honest, I really like working on it. Ever since I purchased the chiltons for it, I have been having allot of fun figuring out what I can afford to repair or replace next, and what the most important repairs might be. I'm going to be doing some interior body work on it soon (I cant stand tan..just not my color) so I figured if Im going to "pimp my ride" I should join a forum or something...okay enough with the rambling...great to meet you all.

#38179 Oil Change Time

Posted by possessed_G/C_owner on 11 July 2013 - 09:06 PM

I use the plastic ramps, but also use a jackstand and wheel chocks because I don't trust my life to Walmart plastic.  On a related note, has anyone tried to use an oil extractor through the dipstick hole?  In my 2007, the tube that came with the pump won't fit the last 3 to 4 inches to make it into the oil reservoir.  Does anyone have any experience with getting smaller tubing to work?

honestly, ive never used them but they seem to be a waste of time. there is no possible way for you to get all the oil to the bottom of the pan out. good ol' fashioned wrench and oil pan. the thicker oil (sludge) wont generally get pulled up through the tube.
