Question about 1988 Dodge Caravan
I just put in a rebuilt engine (3.0L) in my 1988 dodge caravan. The engine light and maintenance required light stays lit. The van will not idle and will stalls at low RPM's. I was told to run the van and the light will go out when the computer "retrains" itself. So far, this has not happened yet, 200 miles later!
Take it to Autozone and let them check it to see what code shows up. They wont clear it for you, but you can do it your self by disconnecting the negitive battery cable and reconnect it after 30 minutes.

could be fuel filter clogged //fuel pump is going bad which you will need to have a pressure test done ...also is there a gas odor ? could be rusted lines could be air filter ....messing with the timing you should not move to much ...if you have brake /carb choke cleaner try spraying around the intake manifold to see if any change in performance such as lowering the rpm's which would mean a gasket leak are all the Vacuum lines good and not dry-rotted try bending them ans well as spraying with a squirt bottle of water on the plug wires to see if an Arc is present a bad plug wire ..these are a few areas in which i would consider 1st ..hope this helps you
