  1. Heavy Duty Brakes upgrade on 2010 Chrysler Town & Country

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    My brakes became due for changing. I felt a pulsation during braking and all pads got almost worn. For some time I was thinking about upgrading to HD all the more I have 17” rims. However technically inclined, I am not a professional car mechanic. I am writing this thread mostly to encourage...
  2. Odometer gone, replaced by temp display - how to change it back??

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Went to a new shop for oil change (2008 Grand Caravan SE). The Change Oil nag had been active. After oil change, the Change Oil nag was gone, but so was the odometer! In the place where the odometer had been, it now displays the current outside temperature. Owner's manual says nothing about...
  3. SES light after changing spark plug?

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    First thanks to everyone for all the valuable info and insight on this site! I've been working my way through spark plug replacements in a 3.8L 1999 TC with about 150K. The front three went smoothly over a couple of weekends and there were no engine problems after each change--even without...
  4. Has anyone switched their Nivomat suspension to a regular suspension, 2005 caravan

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    The time has come to replace my nivomat shocks on my 2005 grand caravan, and like everyone in my situation, I do not like the price. Can anyone tell me the difference between the nivomat suspension and a regular suspension, other than self leveling shocks and springs to match. Does anyone know...
  5. How important is the "6 months" oil change rule?

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Hey guys, I have a 2011 Caravan Crew with about 31,500 miles on it. Since my last oil change I have put on about 4,500 miles and I am almost at the 6 month mark. According to the manual I should never go more than 6 months or 8,000 miles without changing the oil. This will be my first change...
  6. question about "oil change due" light

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Hey guys, I bought my 2011 caravan crew (27,000 miles) about a month ago and have put about 750 miles on it. A couple of days ago the "oil change due" light came on already! Why the heck would this light have turned on so soon? I checked the oil and the condition and level both look good. Can...
  7. advice needed for 2011 caravan oil changes...

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Need a little expertise here guys. I just purchased a 2011 caravan with the 3.6 and 26,000 miles on it. I was looking over the manual and it calls for an oil change every 8,000 mi or every 6 months. This just seems a little extreme for me. Is this even with conventional oil? I live in Minnesota...
