  3. Check and Verify Timing

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    1996 3.3L have crank but no start. Will attempt start for micro-second but nothing more and will occasionally give a small backfire. Have checked Fuel, Air, Spark and Compression. About the only thing left is timing. Can't find documentation on how to verify timing is correct. Have read the...

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I have a 2005 T&C with the 3.8L V6 with 209000 miles on it. During the last cold snap, as I was leaving town shortly after a normal startup, it started running badly and went into what I suspect was "limp" mode and I was able to turn around and get it back home, but now it no longer starts...

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    My 96 GC died on me after it's first day out in 2 years. I heard a pop followed immediately by a whistling sound that stayed consistent with engine speed a few minutes before it shut off on me. I had not driven it for 2 years, so I got it up and running (other vehicle too expensive to fix right...

  10. Melted Wiring

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    Hi guys, I have a 2000 T&C. It would run fine then sometimes starts to sputter, then die. It would start up again twenty minutes later without me "fixing" anything. The original owner said he thought it needed a new fuel pump and filter, so I replaced them. It made a world of difference, but...

  12. Car won't start -- even after replacing the fuel pump

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    One night, the car was fine. The next morning, it wouldn't start. The starter works. The battery's brand new. The AAA road assistance guy confirmed the battery's good, and he thought fuel pump. Car's a 1996 Grand Voyager SE, 3.3L. Apparently, if the cause is not the fuel pump, then it's...

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    Today my T&C had to be jumped after refueling. It was about 100 degrees and I'd been driving in traffic. Borrowed one of those booster thingys and had to let it charge the vehicle battery for about 5 minutes before it would turn over. Once it cranked it started immediately. Seems hard to...

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    I recently started having problems starting my T&C. Sometimes it will start fine. Sometimes it will click and start to turn over for about 1 second or less and thats it. First few times i pushed the shifter up a bit (it was already in Park) and then it started. Now it seems to be getting worse -...

    Hi everyone, I have a 1996 Town & Country LXi that will not run. It cranks over and starts strong (like normal starting), but as soon as the engine fires it immediately stalls. If I hold the throttle open while cranking the engine will start, rev up briefly, then immediately stall as if the...
