  1. 4th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    It's possessed and won't crank though everything else is operational. I've checked the forum and not really come up with anything solid relating to my issue. The van has about 160K on it, runs great and drives equally as well. I replaced plugs, wires, and cables about 5K ago without any...
  2. 3.8L V6 Tech Talk
    Hey there, I will try to be as specific as possible, but there is lots of funny stuff going on with my Town and Country from 2002. A couple months ago my car started shaking when going uphill. Due to many panels being removed in the back of the car, there is two hoses (rear right wheelhouse)...

    Hi, I was just curious if anyones tried to swap a 3.6 pentastar into the older 4th gen vans? I really dig the boast of power that would have and love the 4th gens a lot more then the newer 5th gens. I also have AWD on my 4th. So can the trans mount up to the 4 speed or would I be better off...
  4. 5th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    Ok here is all the background on what is going on with my 2010 GC SXT 3.8. On a wet morning (before the snow) the van started acting up, like a misfire or lack of gas. It would not rev correctly when pressing the gas pedal in N or P. Engine light came on and I had it scanned at AutoZone. Came...

    Will a 3.3L motor bolt up to the 3.8L trans?
  6. 4th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    On my T&C, I recently replace the trans pan gasket and filter because I saw a small leak (the pan bolts had fluid on them, and some on the bottom, but it wasn't dripping more than once or twice every five minutes - even when running and warm). It's small enough that the level hasn't noticeably...
  7. 5th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    The 3.8L in my 2008 (121k miles) has recently developed a tick at idle and under light acceleration. I thought it was a clogged lifter or similar, so I wanted to "clean" the top end. I've tried seafoam through the vacuum tube (not much smoke), seafoam in the engine oil 500 miles before a change...
  8. 5th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    Recently bought a used 2010 T&C 3.8L with 105K and it seems to lack power and lags from 1st to 2nd. I have read some other threads that mention the van is just heavy but others say it is very peppy. So which is it? I am going to start with changing the plugs and cam sensor before looking into...
  9. 3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    I have 2000 Town and Country Lxi , 3.8 engine with 195,000 miles. For the past 10 years my mpg has been 12 mpg for city driving. I always do slow smooth starts, moderate acceleration and slow smooth anticipated stops. Time spent at red lights is minimal and virtually no stop-and-go traffic...
  10. 5th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    I love my 2005 Grand Caravan, but it's time to upgrade a few years to a van in better condition. I'm looking in the range between 2006 and 2009 but the few Gen 5's I've driven seem not as solid as my 2005. Were the 2005 and Gen 4's better built? Of course there is a price difference between a...

    Hi, What is the transmission fluid capacity for 2004 3.8l Town and Country. I am looking for the amount of fluid I need for newly rebuild transmission, not regular fluid change capacity. Thank you in advanced for the information. Regards, XPPilot
  12. 4th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Some of you may remember me from my previous thread regarding the key electronic sentry system which is cutting off my engine after 2.5 seconds despite my having all 4 original keys. Well, yesterday, the red light goes on but the van is running fine; highway driving mostly but never a problem...
  13. 3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    I have a 2000 Chrysler Town & Country limited. We have had it about 5 or 6 years, it has been a good little van. It has around 208,000 miles on it. I am changing engines on it, the original engine spun a bearing and knocks like crazy. I got a junk yard engine with 120,000 miles on it, from a...

    So I have a 2005 T&C Touring 3.8 w/ Stow and Go. I have been trying to figure out why it was running perfectly (except for a very noisy ac compressor) and all the sudden it just stopped turning over. I am getting spark and changed out the ignition coil just to make sure, checked the battery and...
  15. 4th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I have an 03 T&C 3.8 with 138K mi. I have a slight miss on highway (all speeds in a slight strain) and a little rough idle which started at about 100k mi. I put new plugs and wires (Mopar from dealer) and new coil pack. I also checked the wiring harness to injectors for melted wires and all...
