  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: What's the mileage on your 3rd

    Jealous of that Gen 4 thread about mileage? Time to show'em who's got the miles. :) Yesterday from the driver's seat of my 1999 T&C:

  2. Exclamation Sticky Thread Sticky: Reference: 1998-2000 Model Year Diagnostic Code Retrieval

    I finally managed to figure out the clear information on how to retrieve the codes from the 1998-2000 Chrysler minivans, verses the 1996-1997 Chrysler minivans. There has been a lot of discussion, debate and confusion on the "key dance" with regards to the "how-to" and I finally have the official...

  4. Sticky Thread Sticky: Reference: 3.3/3.8L Fluid Capacities & Specifications

    I thought I'd post this information from the 2000 model year owner's manual which should be the most current information for the 3rd generation as it is the final year. Perhaps a global moderator can make this a sticky so that it can easily accessible to all who may need it. ...

  1. HIDs LEDs whatever....need brighter headlights

    I don't mean to turn this into a junkshow of people arguing in this thread or trying to derail the post because HID bulbs don't belong in reflective housings. I am at my last tether with bulbs and lighting in this van. I have previously owned quad headlight minivans and the lighting was no...

  3. Engine backfires on acceleration

    My 1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager just started bucking and backfiring through the intake, at first only after warming up, now all the time. No codes set so I assumed the ECM and replaced it. It still runs bad but now has set P0132 and P0138. I replaced both the O2 sensors and no change. Any ideas...

  4. Swapping Power Steering Pump fluid with Turkey Baster?

    Just wanted to know if I kept swapping the reservoir fluid out drive after drive whether or not I'd eventually be able to replace almost all of the fluid. As some of you may know, I had a TERRIBLE time with a PS pump situation prompting me to buy a used PS pump just to break even. The pump is in...

  5. Intermittent wipers Stop working in the rain 98 T&C

    I have '98 T&C. When I turn the intermittent wipers on they will work and then after a minute or so will stop working. When I turn off of intermittent for a while and then back, they will work again for 30-60 seconds then stop again. The slow and high speed constant wiper settings work all the...

  6. '96 Grand Voyager (3.3) surging under load, random stalls

    Our 3.3L 1996 Grand Voyager started having some intermittent issues a few months ago. Everything started with some random misfire codes (about once every 500-1000 miles). It would also occasionally (maybe once every week) surge very slightly while accelerating. I checked plugs, coil, wires, etc....

  7. Headlights stay on all the time

    Wondering if anyone has run into this problem: 98 Grand Caravan. At some point several years ago, all the exterior lights started coming on automatically when the ignition was turned on. Headlights stay on even when turn the light switch to parking lamps only. Not a big problem, except now there...

  8. Solar Panel Battery Charging and Battery Rejuvination

    Several months ago I began using solar panels to keep my vehicle batteries topped up when not using them because I have 2 wheel vehicles I use as often as possible. I also have several minivans. One might sit for a few months between uses. So a few months back I opted to use a solar panel so...

  10. How often do ignition coils go bad?

    I have a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3L (regular gas) with 93k miles on it. I just wanted to know how often the ignition coil tends to go bad on this generation of minivans. My car isn't having any issues right now, but a spare ignition coil would be good to get the next time I order parts (if...

  11. 1998/2002 parts compatibility

    I have a '98 G/C (3.0) which "died" last Fall. Recently I purchased a '02 with a 3.3. Are there any parts worth saving from the '98 to potentially use in the '02? What parts are "safe" to sell from the '98 that I won't be able to use in the '02? Thanks! Rob

  17. Question Brakes lack pressure - Grand Caravan SE takes longer to stop

    I have a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 3.3L FWD. 2 days ago I started having an issue with my brakes. Sometimes when I brake, the car stops normally but sometimes there is a lack of pressure (I have the brake pedal pushed down all the way) and the vehicle takes much longer to come to a complete...

  18. How to stop doors auto-locking when driving?

    Hi, My wife doesn't like the feature in our 1997 Chrysler Voyager that automatically locks all the doors after you reach about 30 km/h. She finds it a hassle when she then has to remember to hit the unlock button before leaving the car to get the baby & pram out. What is the correct procedure to...

    Hi all, We're trying to figure out some car seat madness. The laws and recommendations for child car seats these days are nearly unnavigable. I have a couple questions for y'all regarding our '98 GV (which just passed 333,333 miles yesterday)... 1. What model year did Chrysler start...

  20. Timing chain didn't stretch ?!?

    I'm changing the timing cover gasket set on my 2000 GC ES 3.8L AWD to end a coolant leak. With the timing cover off I can see the coolant O-ring directly above the water pump seems to have swelled at some point, resolved that by taking a flower petal path, then later dried and cracked where the...
