3.3

This sounds like you have a wire that is shorting out. I would start the van and then wiggle the wiring harness to see if you can make it shut off so you will know what area to look in. One place to look is at the wiring harness over the top of the trans linkage they are bad about falling down on the linkage and causing this.

where is the trans linkage located on the motor
Dodge Mechanic: moparfl, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
It is on the drivers side. the trans is bolted to the engine and the linkage is on top of the trans.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
