    I have a scanner so I know the code is related to coolant temp and usually points to a Thermostat... but I'm new to Chrysler vehicles (other than a 2000 XJ Cherokee, I've owned nothing but GM) and just wanted to get some feedback before I guess. Bought the van last Saturday. It was 70 degrees...

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Hi everyone. Working on a 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan with about 190K miles on it. The symptom I am seeing is that the engine overheats pretty quickly once after running for about 5 minutes. What I have done so far is replace the thermostat, and added coolant. What I finally did was actually...
  3. Why so slow to warm up?

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    I just noticed on a long road trip that the temperature gauge takes forever to reach mid-range. It used to get there in 5-10 minutes of idling. Now it takes 45 min. of 50mph driving (mid-40's outside temp) to get to mid-gauge. It will go up faster running the engine at standstill, but then...

    (2002 T&C, 3.3L) About 2 days ago my radiator had multiple fractures and needed to be replaced. I first noticed the problem when my heat stopped working on my way to a restaurant. The next morning I went to check the fluid and it was all on the ground already. So i bought a new radiator and...

  9. Heating issue - HELP!

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    Have just bought a 96 Grand Voyager Van 3.3 that had a few minor things to be done to it. One of them being that either no, or very little, heat was getting into the cabin. Thought it was the radiator as it was leaking. Having replaced that and flushed the system - the problem persists...
