    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    So I bought a new radiator for my '03, Carquest #431417. This is the third one I've purchased. I noticed new packaging, and they finally made the overflow hose nipple the correct size, but when I went to swap brackets over, I noticed that the top and bottom plates looked like they'd been cut...

  5. Is the radiator relay the problem?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    My van is a 2007 Limited. For a while it was overheating but showing it in two different ways. One way was that the needle would go up either slowly or I'd turn the car back on and the needle would shoot up to overheating and I'd know. The other way is that it would make a rattling noise and...
