  1. 2010 T&C - Intermittent right front brake problem

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    I have a 2010 Town and Country, 4.0L SFI SOHC 6cyl, ~100,000 miles. Periodically, the right front brake will seem to drag while at highway speeds. It does overheat (to the point of smoking), and requires you to stop the vehicle and let it cool down. It will return to normal and not repeat the...
  2. 94 2.5 temperature spikes when heat is turned on

But then it doesn't loose any more, even if I drive it low for a month. No smoke out the pipe, runs okay, never registers overheating though I...
  5. Coolant level up when engine overheats

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    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...

    Introduce Yourself and Your Minivan
    Hm... when the dealer said that my van was "1 in like... 5", I thought he was just ribbing me... but the more I look around, the more it seems like he wasn't joking at all... My name is Chris. Sheena is my wife, and "Cara" is what I named my Mini... that's right, I'm the daddy, and I DRIVE THE...
