Plastic nipple on fuel tank busted, as well as plastic connector on fuel line

You could try to repair it (ie: glue it), but it probably wouldn't hold for too long. Your best bet is to go to a You-Pull-It wrecking yard and find a replacement.

On a 2013 Dodge Caravan is there a way to turn the flexplate without turning the crankshaft?

2003 Dodge Caravan over-heating

It wouldn't be hot if coolant wasn't running through it. So the question is: Is enough coolant flowing? That would be a water pump issue. Or, are the radiator fans not doing a good enough job. That ...
