  1. Remove Oil Filter Adapter

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    I'm new to the forum and did a quick search and I've also looked around google for the past hour to find information on the oil filter adapter. Seems as though I stripped the threads on my adapter and can't get my oil filter back on straight. I have five quarts on the garage floor to prove it...

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I have a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan with 193k on it 3.8 liter motor. It has an oil leak that is coming from the rear drivers side of the motor. I replaced the valve cover gaskets as well as oil pan gasket so I have ruled those out as the source of the leak. I have to replace about a quart of...

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    So you may have seen me say about the P0522 code that I was getting, I have found out the problem, the wire has been pulled almost all the way out of the plug (I can see bare threads) - When I pushed it (gently) back in, I have yet to get the code/oil light. So, I am going to attempt to fix it...
  5. 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...
  6. Oil pressure gauge not rising

    2nd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1991-1995
    I was working on doing a coolant flush this morning. After refilling the radiator, I got into the vehicle to start it up. When I did, the "CHECK GAGES" light came on, and when I looked to the right I saw that the oil pressure gauge had not gone up at all. The other gauges were all working fine...

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Its already cold in OH, and i've noticed that even in the mornings around 20 degree when I let it run for a few minutes, it takes a while to heat up. Even after driving for 10 minutes its still not at normal running temperature. I was wondering if anyone else has attempted to use different...

    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...
  13. advice needed for 2011 caravan oil changes...

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    The oil light is coming on when stopped. About 57K miles. The oil level is fine and the oil and filter have been changed every 5K. I changed the oil pressure sensor and still have the problem. No strange engine noises. Hard to believe it could be an oil pump or screen at this mileage. What...

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I was wondering what brand of oil would be good for my van. Let me start by saying that I can't afford Mobil 1 or Amsoil. I have been using Havoline for years in all of my vehicles. Just wondering what might be better, or maybe cheaper, but still good. Your opinions will be greatly appreciated...:)
