Your intake manifold gasket may be blown. You don't mention what engine is in your Caravan but I would suggest taking it to a Dodge dealer who will attach it to their DRB-II scan tool, which has more information than regular OBD-II scan tools when it comes to Chrysler/Dodge products. A diagnostic should only run you $60-80 and they will be able to tell you exactly what is wrong. Sounds like your mechanic is shooting in the dark.
