Asked by Lynwood Aug 21, 2010 at 07:08 AM about the 2001 Dodge Caravan SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently had a water pump replaced and the mechanic said it would be wise to replace the timing belt as well.  Since then the engine idles roughly at traffic lights.  It never really gets close to a stall.  When you step on the gas, it hesitates and takes off.  It also lerches on hills.  I put fuel injector cleaner in yesterday with no real improvement.  The condition seems worse when air is on.

if it was fine before then the timming belt could be off a tooth. easy mistake to do.
