Hello, At this point, you may want to see a mechanic. If you keep replacing individual parts, it will end up costing more money than having a mechanic with the proper diagnostic tools fixing the actual root cause. However, if you do want to go forward with fixing it yourself, check out what these folks say about having similar problems with their Caravans: http://www.automotivehelper.com/topic136672.htm I hope this helps!

I had a similar problem with a Caravan and it was the catalytic converter; it had collapsed inside, showing no outside problems. It took about 2 years before the dealer found the problem. Meanwhile, it would stop cold dead on the freeway in several attempts to Kill Me!
