Versatile, With Retro Style!
By TrashTsar on
1990 Dodge Caravan 3dr Minivan
I am the original owner of a 1990 Dodge
Caravan with the 3.0 V6 engine. The car has
151,000 miles on it and has been reliable.
The original 3.0 liter engines had bad valve
stem seals that caused me to replace it with a
factory rebuilt engine at 95,000 miles. The
engine is far superior to the original and is a
strong puller. Avoid the 4 speed transmission
sold with the long wheelbase vans. I got the
simple, 3 speed trans and it has given me no
trouble. Starter, air conditioner, exhaust, and
most other systems have had no repairs. With
the seats out I haul lumber, furniture--you
name it. With the seats in, I haul a soccer
team or the family plus others.
Stong pulling v6 engine, high seating position
for a good view of the road, comfy ride, classic
lines. Haul people or cargo.
Getting to the rear spark plugs on the V6 is
difficult. Pay someone to do a plug
replacement for you.
