I have a 2.5L Caravan. It has run without trouble for years. Just recently, it has started to sputter a bit while idling and kinda 'hunts' for a stable idle position. Then it suddenly dies. It will re=start, but this pattern starts all over again. This has been a gradual buildup over perhaps a month.


Before I start changing things, anyone had any similar situations? What did you do to correct the problem? The air cleaner is clean, there is plenty of fuel. I am thinking it might be the fuel filter. I have not changed it out since I have owned the van. It has 197K on the engine.

Thoughts, suggestions and knowledge from those of you who have experienced the problem much appreciated.

Fuel filter should be changed every 50K miles, so.... :rolleyes:

Check fault codes, also. http://www.allpar.com/fix/codes/index.html
Thanks, Bob. However, I do not have a scanner, but can still follow the flashes. More later after I change out the filter.

Thanks for your replies. Fortunately, that injector is priced MUCH lower than $100. It just might need to be changed.
