    Why does my minivan cough, sputter, and die while driving? It can happen at any time with no discernible pattern to it
    We have replaced the pvc valve and the air filter. We have cleaned the air control valve. We even replaced the battery, in case the cause was a short in the battery. So far, nothing has helped. The check engine light comes on sometimes, but it doesn't stay on all ...

      A. FUEL SYSTEM PRESSURE
      1996 Chrysler Truck Town & Country 2WD 3.8L MFI 6cyl
      The Fuel System Pressure


      49 PSI (Pounds per Square Inch)Remove the ground cable from the negative battery post and also remove the fuel tank filler cap and the service valve cover shield. Attach the fuel release tool onto the fuel rail test port, then place the open end into a suitable gasoline container and proceed to bleed down the pressurized fuel system.Remove the fuel release tool and replace with a fuel pressure test gauge. Reconnect the battery ground cable, and place the ignition in the run position.Utilize a scan tool to energize the fuel pump.This will bring the system to a stabilized fuel pressure that can be visually verified on the gauge.
      If the fuel system pressure isn't in the criteria, replace the fuel pump and the fuel filter.

      Check the vehicle for fault codes to see if there are any sensors were involved to the malfunction of the engine.

      1.Local auto parts stores such as Autozone ( not in California) or Advance Auto parts or Pep Boys will scan and retrieve any diagnostic trouble codes ( dtc ) stored in the powertrain control module for free of charge..

    Can a bad o2 sensor burn more gas ?
    Car is drinking a lot of gas since o2 sensor went bad last week

      When the oxygen sensor fails, the computer can no longer sense the air/fuel ratio, so it ends up guessing. Your car performs poorly and uses more fuel than it needs to.

      Yes, as an emission component in the exhaust stream providing sensory feedback - a faulty oxygen sensor ca cause poor engine performance and lower fuel mileage.

      Check these various on-line vendors; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.RockAuto.com, www.partsgeek.com, to list only a few. For example, they (RockAuto) list the oxygen sensors (upstream or downstream of the converter) from around $16.00 each for your vehicle.

      Use the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for the specific replacement steps - the O2 sensors are easily replaced. Be sure to always replace in pairs or sets (i.e; both upstream and downstream, left side and right sides,etc) due to age / mileage / wear considerations.

      If the starter motor won't crank, I'd have to check voltage and ground for starter motor. Any testing at the starter, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set.

      I haven't looked to see if your security system might cause an issue with starter motor? If this is an automatic, your neutral switch could cause an issue?

      Just to add, the starter relay in the integrated power module, under the hood. Unplug the relay, terminal in diagram is hot all the time. Use jumper wire between terminal 30 and terminal 87, the starter motor should crank. Just be sure the tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set. If the key is on, the vehicle may start?

      " MY PANEL AND HEAD LIGHTS ARE BLINKING " is the symptoms of a bad regulator built-in in the alternator.

      The analyzer electrical test at the local auto parts stores CAN'T DETECT THAT SYMPTOMS ". Replace the alternator.
