  1. Should I change transmission fluid

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I know this is an old post, but still relevant. Any new-to-you vehicle, I would drop the pan, new filter and clean magnet and pan. Use the proper filter, make sure it "Clicks-in" properly. Use +4 fluid, and no other additives. DO NOT OVERFILL! The new pan with drain plug is a great idea. Keep an...
  2. Common Problems with 4th Gen

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    OK, just my take on the Gen 4 problems. Apx 500K on our gen 4's. 1. Rust...everywhere.....my biggest issue!! 2. Water pumps start going, fools add stop leak, then the problems compound. Radiators are weak. 3. Gas tank vent sticks. Cannot fill van in under 20 minutes. Drop tank and fix...a...
  3. Problem with turn signal

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    If you or someone else slipped an LED bulb in there, it would also cause hyper-flash.
  4. Caravan/T&C/Voyager oil filter

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    On our 3.3's and 3.8's the "1A's" hang below the pan about 1-1/2" and seem to be in harms way. I could see a filter getting whacked. I switched to the PH8 size and they work fine. There is a large amount of info online about filter quality. A few filters are unworthy. Many regular stocked brands...

  6. Map and Vanity Lights - what is normal function?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Hey Guys, YES you can replace just the bulb! Because of the heat I used a soft white T10 LED with wires for the contact, not the printed circuit board type. When you twist and pull out the existing 579 bulb (these vans have both the 578(festoon/fuse type) and the 579 twist insert type where the...
  7. Family buying 4 '07 GC to use as cargo haulers for our business

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Greetings Dillpickle., Our business and family all have Chrysler Minivans. All of them 3.3 or 3.8 liter engines, by our preference. They are not perfect. No vehicle is perfect. We do all of our own maintenance except for exhaust. We tow trailers and have commercial roof racks on our work...
  8. Changed fuel pump, now having trouble filling tank

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Hopefully your problem is still gone. Questions for you::: 1. Could we do this air infusion with the tank still on?? Really don't want to drop the tank 2. Does anyone know where all of the roll-over valves are?? I have read there are between 2 & 4 of these. 3. I am thinking of adding some...
  9. New Here: Roof Rack Info Needed!

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    You should NEVER use Aluminm Riv-Nuts on a steel material attachment. You should use either steel or stainless. There are a couple of aftermarket companies that sell direct bolt on upgrades for the caravan racks, I have 2. If you are without a factory rack you should use the internal stiffener...

  11. Spare Tire won't drop - 2004 Dodge Caravan

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    My '03 was a bugger to get loose. The release was rusted completely. I used a handy flat metal hook plate I made to get over the tire to pull closed the latch. Then a mini wire wheel to clean away the rust and lots of white lithium to finish.
  12. Code P0401

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    That is usually the culprit for a P0401....a carbon clogged passage. About a 45 minute fix for a $300 dealer quoted job..... Good post here!!
  13. Drain fuel tank?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    The pump wires are in the top of the tank.. you basically need to remove the tank to do this....Now if you knew where the source of the wires came from, you may be able to do this from the front of the car.
  14. Need help with a code P1491

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Did problem come back?? Was it a 1-time blown fuse?? Was it the 40Amp one?? There is usually a bigger reason the fuse pops.
