dodge caravan died and won't start
driving down off ramp and heard a soft pop ,like a coil wire popped off a distributer cap, then engine died and now turns over like it's getting no gas
...well you ought to test the fuel pressure...at least push the schroeder valve on the fuel rail to see if there is any fuel pressure....put the key to the 'on' position and listen to hear if the fuel pump is turnin- this way we can tell if its "gettin' NO gas"~ no check engine light...that'll probably narrow it down a bit~
checked and there is NO inertia switch...like in a rollover crash, yours will continue to spray a pressurized gas plume~ if that ain't a hoot~
did you look at the distributor to see if in fact the cap has 'pooped off'?
you should take a plug wire off, put a screwdriver in..and with a gloved hand hold it close to ground...with an assistant turning the key, we can tell if you're gettin' good spark...that'd narrow it down a bit~
Yesterday on a friends dodge van I found she was only getting spark from 3 cylinders, so I replaced 3 out of the 6 tried jacking the van up to get to the back ones with no luck. I tried starting it and it wouldn't start. I also went and got a coil pack still won't start.
with it dieing suddenly did you check with the distributor cap off if the rotor is turning if not bet it's the timing belt
