1989 Turbo Dodge Caravan racing at Mission Raceway, Aug 5/2011
Fully loaded van with a/c, interior, full Exhaust and auto, 3620 lbs with me in it, GT35R turbo, 2.5L 4 cylinder with a TIII 16 valve DOHC head.
Just got it running with a newly ported head, tri flo cams and header. First time out, lots of tuning and playing, couldn't build Boost at the line. More tuning but then the camera went dead, just the burnout but ran a 13.5@98 23 psi.
2011 Dodge Grand Caravan Crew Start Up, Engine, Test Drive and In Depth Review
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan
Crew. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of
this van while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details
of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this van designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
dodge caravan noisy steering DIY fix
The 3rd and 4rth generation dodge caravans Are notorious for developing
loud and hard power steering. Most people think that it is either the pump
or the rack but it is probably just the screen built into the power
steering reservoir. Dodge uses inferior hoses that start to degrade after
about 50,000 miles and that material plugs the screen causing the pump to
starve for fluid.
Your best bet is to change the reservoir and hoses but this little fix
should get you through another 50,000 miles or so.
Racing our 3 turbo Mopars at the track.
1989 Dodge Caravan and 1989 Plymouth Sundance, both are close to stock with
simple bolt ons around 11-13psi. The other is our 1990 Dodge Caravan. 2nd
time out in over 2 years. Still trying to dial it in with the Nitrous.
