Dodge Caravan Turbocharged Drag Racing Racelegal.com 4-6-2012
Race your ride at qualcomm stadium at racelegal.com how about a dodge caravan turbocharged drag racing and very fast.
Generation I Caravans used the Chrysler S platform, which was closely related to the K-cars, Dodge Aries and Plymouth Reliant. There were three trim levels on the Generation I Caravan: base, mainstream SE, and upscale LE. The Caravan was on Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best list for 1985. All trim levels were also available in a slightly longer body, called the Grand Caravan, which allowed significantly more cargo space behind the rear seat. Most of the interior trim, controls, and instrumentation were borrowed from the K-car, leading to a very "car-like" interior look and feel. Coupled with the lower floor that the front-wheel-drive design allowed, this helped to make the Caravan seem more like a large station wagon than a van, enticing many buyers who would not have otherwise been comfortable driving a van.
The vans came equipped for seven passengers in three rows of seating, putting it between a typical twelve-passenger/four-row full-size van and a six-passenger/two-row large sedan. 2 bucket seats with attached armrests and open floor space between them in the front, a 2 person bench seat in the second row, and a 3 person bench seat in the back row. The two bench seats in the rear were independently removable, and the large 3 person bench could also be installed in the 2nd row location via a second set of attachment points on the van's floor, ordinarily hidden with snap-in plastic covers. This configuration allowed for conventional 5 person seating with a sizable cargo area in the rear. The latching mechanisms for the benches were very intuitive and easy to operate. The act of moving the seats, however, typically required 2 adults, and lifting them back into the van was a very awkward procedure. An 8-passenger model with a bench front seat accommodating a middle front passenger was offered in the SE trim level in 1985 only, and was not repeated due to poor sales.
Safety features were typical of vans of the era, and consisted of 3-point seat belts for the front two passengers, with simple lap belts for the rear 5. The rear seats had no headrests, while front seats with non-adjustable headrests came only on the LE and in conjunction with vinyl upholstery on the SE. Base models and cloth-trimmed SEs did without front headrests which were not mandated due to the van's "light truck" legal status. Side-impact reinforcements were, and were at all seating positions front and rear. Airbags or ABS were not available.
Access to the rear rows of seating was by a large sliding door on the passenger side. The sliding door allowed easier access in a confined suburban garage, compared to the double doors found on most full-size vans of the era. Because only one sliding door was offered, the smaller 2nd row bench seat was installed off center, shifted to the drivers side of the van, to allow easy passenger access to the 3rd row seat. The cargo area behind the rear seat was very limited on the standard short body model, however, the seat could be adjusted forward in 2 increments, the first of which removed roughly 6 inches (150 mm) of legroom from the back row passengers, and the second of which would push the bench all the way to the back of the 2nd row, making the seats unusable. The seatback of the rear bench could also be folded forward, providing a flat cargo shelf. The smaller 2nd row bench was not adjustable, nor foldable; it could only be removed entirely.
Cargo access to the rear was via a hatchback, similar to the one on the K-Car station wagons. The hatch was hinged at the top and held open by gas struts, and it was the source of much confusion among Caravan owners. It could only be released by the key, or by a button on the driver's control panel; it did not have a traditional door handle. Once the hatch had been "popped", the key could be removed, and the hatch lifted by a handhold above the license plate holder. However, many owners did not identify the handhold area, and instead used the turned key as a handle to lift the hatch, resulting in many broken keys.

Water pump replacement 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.8L. V6. Install Remove
Replace. 3.3L should be the same too. For some reason they decided to move
the water pump from the front to the backside, making it a little more
difficult. If you are watching this video and see that your water pump is
on the radiator side of the engine, then consider yourself lucky. the
water pump seems to be the same no matter where they mounted it. The one
in the front (radiator side) comes right out easy. Back one takes more

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan R/T track test
4 wheels, 1200 pounds of man, 1 open track. Loaded with 4 journalists and
two reps from Dodge, we put the screws to the "Man Van", and I have to say,
I was surprised. Unlike the traditional minivan, the Grand Caravan R/T held
its own on the track, making the 1 mile course in 59 seconds. Considering a
high-performance street car averages 45 seconds on this track, the mini van
did good. Enjoy!

2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat: The Most Powerful Sedan In The World! - Ignition Ep. 122
On this episode of Ignition, presented by Tire Rack, Carlos Lago tests the
most powerful sedan money can buy: The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. Much
like the Challenger Hellcat, this Charger packs an astonishing 707 hp from
its supercharged 6.2-liter V-8. It is as absurd as it is functional, thanks
to its two additional doors and comfortable backseat. But to find out if
this sedan can do more than leave two long stripes of burnt tire for miles,
we’ll need to run it through our standard set of tests, including a Hot
Lap with Randy Pobst. Does the Charger Hellcat offer the same magic that we
loved in the Challenger? Find out on this episode of Ignition! @CarlosLago
Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.
