It is very likely that the vacuum hoses are the problem. The only people that have a manual with the diagram you need is a dodge dealer, contact the service dept at your local dealer and they will probably photo copy you a diagram from the service manual.

How do I remove a fuel pressure regulator on a 2002 dodge caravan.

Before doing ANYTHING, it is VERY IMPORTANT that you depressurize the fuel system, and be sure the engine is COLD COLD COLD before removing any lines.
The fuel pressure regulator should have one vacuum line and three fuel lines connected to it. (Some have an electrical connector instead of the vacuum line, but same idea.)
AFTER DEPRESSURIZING THE SYSTEM, with engine COLD, carefully disconnect the vacuum line (or electrical connector), then SLOWLY loosten and remove all three fuel lines, noting how they are connected. Replace all grommets & gaskets with new, then Install the fuel lines to the new regulator, EXACTLY as they were on the original, tightening the fittings to torque specifications provided for your vehicle and engine. Reconnect the vacuum (or electrical) connection, then repressurize the fuel system WITHOUT STARTING THE VEHICLE. With the ignition ON, watch for any sign of leaks. If there are ANY signs of leaks, stop them before starting the vehicle. DO NOT START THE VEHICLE IF THERE ARE ANY LEAKS, AS THERE IS A DANGER OF STARTING AN ENGINE FIRE.
Check for proper fuel rail pressure, and be certain to re-check your work within 100 miles to assure that there are NO LEAKS.
If you are unfamiliar with depressurizing or repressurizing a fuel injection system, PLEASE REFER THE WORK TO A QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN..

Replaced thermostat, heater core is hot on both hoses, replaced controller in dash and still get cold air, no heat. The switcher that switches from dash to floor isn't working either. It will only...

The blend door in the HVAC plenum controls temperature, and that door has an electrical actuator that may have failed. Switching door(s) for diverting air to the different outlets is set by vacuum controlled diaphragm(s) and maybe either a diaphragm has failed or you have a vacuum line problem.
Since both are controlled by the HVAC control panel/module you replaced, sounds like even though you replaced it, it may not be working correctly - the only way to diagnose is to check the electrical line to and back from the actuator for correct readings, and vacuum lines at the controller and diaphragm(s) for vacuum. You should also recheck the connections to make sure they are correct..
If you used a replacement controller from another vehicle, the replacement controller must be an exact match to the HVAC option in the vehicle, and a new OEM version is strongly recommended if you can find one. Try YouTube to see what's involved in fixing these components.

Replaced timing chain and gears now it has high idle and no power.

What was the reason you replaced the chain and gears. Second did you time it correctly. If you did check around your intake manifold and make sure all vacuum lines have been put back correctly.

Check your vacuum lines, it sounds like one did not get reconnected correctly. When this happens you check engine to come on and will cause your engine's rpm's to rise.

Missing vacuum line on 2000 Dodge Caravan 3.0L

I do not have the solution for you but I will make a suggestion if you do not get an answer from someone else. Find a 2000 Dodge Caravan like yours at a used car lot and pop the hood and take a look. That may be your quickest solution.

Are you sure the fluid level reservoir is full and that the cap in on correctly as well as no lines are leaking fluid. Also sounds as though something may not be connected correctly. Are you sure you have connected the brake-booster vacuum line and that all lines are properly bled ...also no dry-rotted vacuum lines ..a simple test of bending the lines will show cracks and dry-rot replacement is needed if so ....this is a starting point for you ..i hope it helps

Pull your AIS motor off, clean with throttle body spray, especially pintle (pointed end) and hole it came out of , re-install & try again, see if that helps. If it works good for a while & acts up again, replace it.
