  1. 5th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    I have a 2011 caravan crew and it has the most annoying rattle coming from something within the dash. Sounds like its coming from just to the left of the instrument panel possibly behind it. Any bump, big or small, it sounds like someone is rattling a set of keys in there. Drives me nuts! Has...
  2. Suspension, Brakes, Steering, Tires & Wheels
    1996 Grand Voyager SE with 187k miles. Runs well. Just a week or two ago, it started making a noise upon starting, seeming to come from the brake pedal. The noise happens whenever the engine is turned on, and never happens at any other time. It's a dull metallic snap that reminds me of a...

    Hi, it's me again. It seems like my van has been asking for a lot of attention lately. Keeps me hoppin'... starting to wonder about replacing the van sometime. Noticed this evening that my alternator is making a humming noise (tracked it down using the hose-stethoscope method). Unhooked the...

    This is my first post so please let me know if I need to post in another area or any housekeeping I need to do. We have the 2006 T&C 3.8L van - it has 130,000 on it. In the last month I have noticed a noise coming from the engine compartment. The noise does not speed up when you rev the engine...

    I have a 2011 T&C. When I start the van after it has been sitting for a while, the rear air has a light humming or machine running noise that kicks on for a minute. After the car runs for a minute, it seems to go away. Basically, it seem like the fan makes this light humming sound then stops...
  6. 4th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    On my 2004 grand caravan when starting off I hear a metallic click sound from the front left. It occurs one or twice then I don't hear it was I am underway. This is not like the clunk you hear from bad sway bar bushings. This occurs only when starting off from a stopped position. At least that...

    Dear Forum, Newbie here, but longtime Chrysler minivan user and owner. Purchased a new 2011 in October. Grand Caravan with full power. My question/problem is about the doors. The driver's side power sliding door started making noise in December or January. Maybe it always did, but that's...

    Hi Folks I bought a used 2010 grand caravan and I've been noticing at high speeds I get a rattling noise that sounds like it's coming from the driver's side front wheel well. It sounds like a thin piece of metal flapping around in the wind. I've looked around but can't find anything loose in...
  9. 5th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    I have a 2010 T+C Touring with 30K and I just took it to the dealer for an intermittent ticking noise that could be heard underneath the van near the front tires. If I opened the engine compartment the noise could not heard much at all. Most of the time once the motor was warmed up the sound...

    Linked is an audio clip from my 2003 Caravan with 154,000 km on the odometer. Front end noise has gotten louder over the last few weeks. Starts at speeds over 30 km/hr. Tires, calipers, pads, rotors and stabilizer bushings are good. Rotating tires makes no difference. It could be a bearing...
  11. 4th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    2003 Caravan SE w/156,000 km on the clock. The last few months everyone has been complaining about how loud my Caravan is. I have not been able to pin down the source but would describe it as a low level thumping which speeds up and slows down with vehicle speed. Doesn't make any difference if...
  12. 5th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    I took my van at the dealer about two weeks ago to have a couple things checked out and one of them was that when I apply the brakes in the last 12 or 15 feet before the van stops the brakes are making a high pitch noise like HIiiiiiiii. I went for a test drive with the mechanic to have him...

    I flushed the radiator fluid on my TC 2000 3.8 (140k miles) using the recommended Prestone coolant. The purpose was to resolve the engine overheating problem that occured each time the outside temperature was above 90F or when sitting in traffic for a while. Since then I have identified 2 new...
  14. 4th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    My 2001 Grand Caravan Sport (3.3L) has been slowly leaking more and more oil. It's got 93K on it and needs plugs too. The first guilty party was the valve cover gaskets. I priced the dealership and a mechanic doing them, gasped, and then decided to give it a shot. I went in from the top and...
