    My 2013 has a hundred and sixty thousand miles on it. It has started making a creaking noise that normally doesn't start until I've been driving the car for a number of hours.

  5. Remove Catalytic Converter

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    I have a 2000 Grand Voyager that I am attempting to replace the steering pump on. One step is removing the Catalytic Converter to make room. Is this an impossible thing to do on a van with 170K miles? Or does it pop right off? I know there are several bolts to remove, but rusty bolts and I don't...
  6. AWD issues?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I'm looking at purchasing T&C AWD minivan. During the test drive I noticed that while turning there was subtle vibration in the steering wheel much like having four-wheel drive locked in on dry pavement. Is this normal for a AWD minivan? If not, is there a likely cause?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I've done outer tie rod ends before, but I've never replaced an inner tie rod before. There's definitely too much play in my left inner tie rod for an alignment to hold, though. Have any of you done inner tie rods, and if so, is there anything I should know - tools or techniques - going in? Nate

  10. New tie rod ends

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I put new outer TREs on our '07 on Friday. Did them both in 35 minutes, from cracking off the center caps to loosen the lug nuts to snapping them back on again. No alignment required; the new outer TREs (TRW brand) are the same length as the OEM ones, and I kept a vice grip on the inner...

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    Yesterday, my 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan sprouted a power steering fluid leak. It appears to be coming from above the rack. The metal lines are badly corroded. If these lines are bad, how difficult of a job will it be to replace them? Can it be done without removing the rack itself? Any input...
