Asked by Oct 04, 2014 at 11:27 AM about the 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Grand caravan will not start after warming up.  If the engine is cold it will start with
no issues.  I have had several different people give me different ideas and none have
worked thus far.  I have changed (in order)  Fuel Pump, O2 sensors (both),Intake O
rings, Fuel Injectors, PCV, Spark Plugs/Wires, Starter & Battery, Charge Air
Temperature Sensor, Coolant temperature Sensor, Thermostat, Crank & Camp
position sensors, ECM/PCM, coil pack.  The engine runs great now but once I shut the
car off it will not start again for about an hour.

I know you have already replaced them, but I had this same issue on achevy. it was a bad injector. if you can have your injectors tested without too much trouble give it a try. even a new one can be bad.

I can remove them no big deal. It only takes me about 15 minutes to get to them. What I don't know is how to test them. Is that something I can do?

you can do a resistance test using A multimeter. set it for ohms and put one of the test leads on each pin. it will give you a reading somewhere between 10 and 18 ohms. go online or call an auto parts store and get the specs for your injectors, also, if you test all of them and find one that is a lot different than the others that would be your bad one.
