2008 grand caravan loss of power on turns for 2 seconds
2008 grand caravan 4.0l sxt. I start the van and drive. On
every turn, it loses acceleration for 1-2 seconds when about
75% through the turn and then picks up as normal. Fast or
slow turning gets the same results. RPMs during the loss is
showing the engine is still running. If I shut off the van and
start it again, it runs fine. I have been starting it twice all the
time to avoid this. It seems to happen when the van sits for
a few hours. No check engine codes or warning lights on
the dash. Transmission filter and fluid has been replaced
and at the correct level. I can not find anything related to
this type of issue. Can someone help me Please?
How many miles and how is the maintenance
100k miles. Maintenance is unknown... I got the van 6 months ago and always had this problem.
My initial post for RPM was in accurate. During the turn the engine RPM drops and has no power. I was also able to brake as normal during this.
I may have finally found the issue or at least able to stop the problem. As oddly as it may sound, it is related to the ignition switch and the keyfob. the problem does not happen when I use the actual key on the first start. This has been acting perfect over the last week.
So Here is an update. I have been using the key since but my problem started coming back last week. When I start my turn, my acceleration is lost until I straighten out the wheel. I do not have any check engine codes. I also do not have a clue on what to check next.
