  3. Belt squeak with an automatic tensioner?

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    Hi, I have a 3rd-generation 3.3L while my Haynes manual reports "a dynamic tensioner automatically maintains the correct belt tension". But I'm experiencing a noticeable squeak that seems to be coming from that area. It varies with engine speed and seems to be worse in the rain. It's not always...
  4. Is the difference between these two headlight photos the angle?

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    They're supposed to both be 3rd generation replacement headlights, but they look different to me - the top one with a much larger orange/blinker section. Are they identical?

  7. Chart of Available Trim Levels

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    Awhile back alain95i4 had the wonderful idea of creating a chart of available trim levels over the years. It can get confusing as trim levels are not consistent from year to year. I found a nify site which has what appears to be a complete list of models available and the MSRP. (Unfortunately...

    Hi, I know the Autostick was available on some (or all?) 3rd Gen DGC ES models. Was it installed on any others? Did it make it into any T&C's? Has anyone had experience with driving one? What's your impression? How is the durability? I'm looking for van #2 and weighing my options...thx. Look...
  9. 3rd Generation Van? I'd check this out...

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    My 2000 Town & Country Limited has been making a terrible creaking/popping noise everytime I turn the steering wheel at a slow speed or stop. Two different shops told me I had a bad power steering rack, which I believed because it seemed to correlate directly with the steering, and I could feel...
