I have a 2005 Dodge Caravan SXT I purchased about 3 weeks

Customer Question
ago. The other day I...
I have a 2005 Dodge Caravan SXT I purchased about 3 weeks ago. The other day I turned the A/C on and it wouldn't blow. I turned it off, then on again and it worked fine. Well, last night when I was driving it was making this weird noise when I accelerated. It was here in town so I didn't go over 20, A/C was running. When I put it in park I noticed it was making that noise when I revved it, but only between 1500-2500 RPMs. I let it sit all night and started it this morning, same noise during the same time. If I rev up to say 3500, as the RPMs drop it makes that noise on the way down in between those RMPs again. I turned the A/C, and everything else (radio, etc.) off to see if it would still make the noise and it does, but not the A/C won't blow at all. Neither will the heat.

HI,
You have a couple of separate unrelated issues. No air flow when turning on the AC or Heater is due to either faulty blower motor, faulty blower motor resistor, or faulty control panel. They would need to be tested with a multimeter.
The noise is not related to that issue. You need to check to see if the noise is from the the front of the engine where the belt is, or at rear of engine where the transmission meets it.
IF at at the rear, then it is torque converter noise. If at the front, the belt and the pulleys need to be listened to with a mechanic's stethoscope to isolate source of noise

What Customers are Saying:

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.
