    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Ok so I am brand new here and am wondering about advice on an engine swap for a 2005 Chrysler Town & Country Limited 3.8L.

  2. How normal does this engine sound to you? (3.3, 2005 Voyager) (VIDEO)

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Hi! This is my 2005 Chrysler Voyager 3.3L, driven 131,000 Km (~81000 miles). I have owned this car for a couple of months and I am a bit concerned about the engine sound.

    For Sale
    Hey Fellas, I have a motor for a 5th gen, the 3.6L, pulled from a 2012 Journey, mileage unknown. From my research I believe it'll work fine for 2011, 2012, and 2013 minivans too. If you're reading this, you probably know more about the compatibility than I do. It's Model 300-08007C, VIN G...
  5. Will 2006 3.8L Pacifica engine fit 2006 Town & Country?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Took my 2006 Town & Country (3.8L, 163,000 miles) to dealer to diagnose a rough idle condition after I ruled out all the usual suspects. They found low compression on cylinder 2, so I had them pull the head thinking the valves might be pitted or burned. They reported the valves are fine, but the...

    So while changing brake pads on a 04 Grand Caravan I decided to bleed the brakes I started with the LH drivers side wheel and as soon as I cranked the engine it was hard to start, it then began to shake as if a motor mount was loose, the exhaust would come out of the tailpipe in pulses instead...

    My Grand Caravan engine is tapping pretty good. It happened one day, not too long ago... Going to visit the in-laws with my family, and about 5 miles from my house the engine started to lightly tap. Sounded like a lifter. I checked the engine oil, and it was 2 Quarts low! This was 2000...

    As I was driving to work today, I noticed my van was shifting a bit odd.... Then, as I was in the middle of a busy intersection turning left, my van would barely accelerate, and finally reached a max speed of 17 mph. I quickly pulled into a parking lot, and shut off the engine. I tried...

    I need help. I have a 1989 Plymouth Voyager 2.5L Turbo minivan with just over 107k on it. Awhile back I had experienced a great deal of issues with the engine holding an idle. If I slowed down to come to a stop sign/light, it would stall and I would be forced to "double pedal it" where ever I...
