  1. How often to change ATF4 transmission fluid

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    This has probably been discussed, but with 471 posts returned on the search I did on this forum, it could be in any of them. So I'll ask a fresh question. I had the tranny on my '96 3.8L rebuilt two years ago. The manual says change the filter/fluid at 15K miles, but is that different with...

  5. Stripped transmission pan bolts / torque spec

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    So I've been wanting to do a transmission filter/fluid change in my 03 T&C 3.8L because the tranny seemed a little hesitation in shifting. So I did it last night and snapped some pics and I figured I'd share; I know this is a pretty simple DIY, but there were a few points that might be useful...
