  1. 6th Gen Pacifica 2017+ Voyager 2020+ Caravan 2021+
    My family owns the 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan Crew with 116k miles. Now that car prices are coming down, I’m looking at the 2019-2021 Pacifica or Voyager (used). I’m not thrilled with the fit and finish and reliability of our DGC, but I guess it’s the best minivan for other reasons like Stow and...
  2. 5th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    Have a 2014 T&C with 124,000 miles on it. Drives fine but about every four days it will go into limp mode and won’t shift to 5th gear. If I put in park and shut off van and restart it works fine. I have noticed it doesn’t do this on the first drive. It’s always after I have driven somewhere and...

    I have a 2003 T&C with roughly 165k miles on the odometer. I am not the original owner, but the van has been in our extended family since new. Knowing that the struts had never been changed and the vehicle's front end was riding rough, I decided I would change them out this past weekend. In...

    2004 T&C 3.8 touring (approx. 145k miles): front end on jackstands, in gear revealed: taking tires/wheels off made easier to see axle shafts, etc.: ... but you can see it's somehow not consistently instructing the axles to spin smooth & uninterrupted NOTE: in an '01 T&C i've experienced a...

    I lost reverse last night while parked on a slight down hill that overlooked a cliff. So I guess that's it for my girl till I get the 4-5 grand necessary to fix it. Just replaced the battery too...

    Dodge Grand Caravan SXT, 2009 3.8L model with Stow 'n Go seating. I purchased a set of used flammable storage cabinets on an online auction and went to pick them up today; 71 mile one-way trip from my home base. Trip out was routine at 60-70 mph, no issues at all. Picked up 7 cabinets, maybe 70...

    As you all read before, the transmission in my 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan, that is saving me from complete homelessness, was malfunctioning whenever I drove over 40MPH. After my initail mechanic just flat out refused to help me and just told me to "buy a newer car", I managed to find a...

    So just for the van, would go to limpmode after driving couple miles. Restart would solve the issue. Looked online and saw replacing the solenoid pack might help. Done replacing, all pit together. Started, shift gears from P to R, then N then when shifted to D the van stalled. Put it back to P...

    I notice at around 4000 rpm, the van jerks back and forth, the rpm's bounce up and down with the jerking, if I let off the accelerator a little it stops and I can slowly accelerate to a higher speed. I only notice this when accelerating hard. Not sure if this is a transmission issue or a power...
  11. 4th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I'm replacing the four engine and transmission mounts plus the inner tie rods and tie rod ends on both sides. Job complete, or so I thought. As I go to put the front wheels back on, they spin. Hmmm. I stick the key in the ignition, turn halfway, and notice the car is in reverse. (It was in...
  12. 5th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    I am thankful for this website. I have a 2008 T & C that has been an awesome vehicle until last year. My problems started while I was out of town with the transmission not shifting past 2nd gear. Took it to a local dealership, they replaced a couple of parts. I paid almost $1000 for the repairs...

    I own a 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.8 with 220,000 miles on it and it recently developed a transmission problem I can't track down. When you first start the car cold and put it in drive, (or reverse) it will shift very smoothly into that selected gear. Then, once you get rolling and the...

    Hey there, I have posted this into the 3.8l Engine forum but have been recommended to look for help here in 4th gen. So I hope I am not getting in trouble for copy pasting the text :) I will try to be as specific as possible, but there is lots of funny stuff going on with my Town and Country...
  15. 3.8L V6 Tech Talk
    Hey there, I will try to be as specific as possible, but there is lots of funny stuff going on with my Town and Country from 2002. A couple months ago my car started shaking when going uphill. Due to many panels being removed in the back of the car, there is two hoses (rear right wheelhouse)...

    2015 Touring L with 125K miles. August of last year dealer performed recommended services of "tune up", "fuel injection service", and "transmission service". I only mention this because I'm sure I'll get asked. A few months after this service(coincidence or not) the van started to develop...

    I recently bought an AWD 04 chrysler town and country and I suspect the transmissions going out. (Big surprise right?) I was wondering, does the AWD system effect what transmission I have in the van? Does it mean it's going to be hard to find parts for the trans? Not sure how AWD works as far as...
  18. 3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    I have a 1996 T&C 3.3L with just over 406K miles. I changed the oil and noticed that quite a bit of transmission fluid was puddled on at about the juncture of where the transmission connects to the engine, roughly in the flex plate area. Has anyone experienced this? Would odds be a bearing...
  19. 5th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    Hey all, I had my 2011 T&C in the shop for water pump and serpentine belt replacement 3 weeks ago. I noticed it felt a little shaky at start up after the repair. Now all of a sudden the transmission is slipping. No check engine light yet. Could this have anything to do with the recent repair...
  20. 5th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    My van is a 2010 Town and Country. Here is the story of this problem: Three weeks ago, my alternator got ridiculously hot. There was a bundle of wires (a part of the engine harness I think) that was resting against the back of the alternator. The alternator got so hot that it melted the...
