  1. 4th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    2001 T&C limited 3.8 Wife was driving home form work, on the freeway, took the off ramp, and when she stopped at the light, the car died. She had it towed home, and the next day I went out to check it, the motor would start, but as soon it was put in any gear it died. OBDII scan kept giving me...
  2. 5th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    2013 Town & Country 130k miles recently purchased and check engine light came on after driving off the car lot! We had torque converter replaced due to P0740 error. Now when shifting from 4th to 5th & 5th to 6th it jumps up a few 100 RPM before shifting. Transmission shop said they couldn't...

    Hi guys. So I've got this weird vibration issue with my van. I've searched the forum and found a few similar issues, not sure if this is the same or not, mine seems to differ a bit. I've been a die-hard manual-transmission guy for a multiple decades. Beyond driving a few rentals, I'm unused...

    Hi guys, Just finished a roundtrip to Estes Park from Houston and a weird thing happened on the trip home. This is a 2000 Chrysler T&C with 138,000 miles (yep, a baby!), 3.8L, 4 spd OD tranny with the original oil- still red and topped off to spec. New plugs at 99,000 miles. Yesterday we...

    My 2004 3.8L T&C transmission gave up last Saturday after 182000 miles on it. I can't complain it for poor quality! During last 12 months I have got numerous times P0700, P0740 and P0306 codes. My estimation is that we got around 12000 miles after the first transmission related code. I have...
  6. 3.8L V6 Tech Talk
    Hi folks, I'm new to this forum and would like to know if any of you have expertise diagnosing the common 41TE 4 spd transaxle. Other forums do have detailed threads on the topic I have scanned with some good takeaways. My situation is this: 1) I have a well equipped shop for a...

    I was hoping for some confirmation on my trans issue. Read up on it but didn't see my symptoms mentioned. Got the 2001 T&C 3.8L Lxi with 63,000 on it a few months ago. It's history is that it has been sitting a lot over the last 20,000 miles of the last owner as it was used for a handicap person...
  8. 4th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I have an 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.8 L 164,000 miles with a fairly strong transmission shudder. I have tried flushing all fluid and changing the filter and had a dealership perform a re-learn on the transmission. This did not change anything. I asked for the CVI values before the re-learn was...

    I had my rear main seal and flex plate replaced earlier this week. I just had my "Service engine soon" light come on. Its throwing the "TORQUE CONVERTER CLUTCH CIRCUIT" error. But I don't know which set of wires that plug into the transmission are the torque converter circuit. I want to make...
  10. 3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    Hello, I'm trying to diagnose a 'chuck-chuck-chuck' noise on my '99 van. 116K miles, AAMCO rebuilt tranny at 85K 4yrs ago, 3.8L AWD. Driveability is fine, runs great, smooth changes, quiet, fresh ATF4+. However, at idle in park, turning A/C on will cause the noise to happen when the compressor...
