  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. 1997 T&C 3.8 - best belt and components?

    Hello. I've owned my van for 13 years now. I've replaced the serpentine belt about 2-3 times in that time frame. I replaced it about a year or two ago, most recently. Once it got cold (october - november onward), it began squeaking, and hasn't stopped. I think it did that last winter, until...

  3. 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...

  4. Fuel leak '99 Town & Country LX

    Hi, We have a fuel drip near the gas tank. It is right at the point where a rubber hose connects to a metal line at a 90 degree angle. Is this something I can fix myself without any explosions or should I get the car towed and have somebody work on it? I really hate to put too much into...

  5. 1997 - Trac off light, driving very slow in snow

    This morning, I drove into work thru some snow - probably up to 6-8" drifts and a few inches on the ground. It seemed to be driving slower than it should. I parked it for a few hours, and when I drove it, it was almost like it was frozen to the ground, and was slow taking off. After stopping...

  6. A Gauge for Monitoring Transmission Fluid Temp

    Is there an easy way to monitor the transmission fluid temp on these minivans? The only way I can think of doing it is to get a temp gauge and get another pan from a junk yard, drill a hole, braze in a fitting for the sender etc. I don't think the under dash OBDC connector provides any...

    1996 T&C 3.3L approaching 392,000. Trans. was losing some fluid and shop tightened the pan bolts and loss was eliminated for a while. Slow loss of fluid started again. I serviced the trans. replacing the filter and putting on new gasket. The pan gasket is not leaking, however the slow loss of...

  8. 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...

  10. 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...

  11. Newer steering wheel? Perhaps from Gen 4?

    Hello folks, the steering wheel in my '98 T&C is rather ratty-looking, and the ones in the local junkyards aren't any better. Does anyone know if it's possible to replace the steering wheel with a newer version, say from a Gen 4 van? Will it bolt on? Will the airbag/cruise control still work? ...

  12. 2000 Grand Caravan takes long to start (Cranks 3-5 seconds) Intermittent

    Hello there, I just bought this 2000 Grand Caravan. It has a 3.3 liter flex fuel engine. Right off the bat, the fuel pump failed. (dead van) I put a fuel pump and a filter then it would start. I put spark plugs new oil air filter and at this point figured it would start quickly. Still takes a bit...

  13. Rear vent window motors

    My 99 Grand Voyager Expresso has the power rear vent windows, nice feature.....if they'd work! When I got the van, the drivers side unit was dead. I called Chrysler, they wanted an ungodly amount for them so I went to Pull-a-Part, got one and tested it to make sure it worked. Excellent. Today...

  14. Brake time again

    Well, it was brake work time again this weekend. Pads, rotors (due to a caliper or pad sticking and wearing the inboard pad down to the metal - unnoticed until too late), calipers, and brake hoses. I chose to go with the new Raybestos EHT Element3 pads this time around. These things have a GG...

  15. 1996 Plymouth Voyager seat belt chime

    I have a 1996 Plymouth Voyager (2.4L) that chimes for several minutes after startup. After the engine starts there is a 10 second delay and the chimes start and go on for about 8 minutes. This happens whether the seat belts are connected or not. Looking at the wiring diagram I see the driver's belt...

  17. Transmission in limp mode, codes 0755 and 1782

    I am hoping to get someone's opinion with more experience than I have. My 2000 T&C has a transmission fluid leak and it got pretty low yesterday. As I came to a stop, it felt like the it didn't downshift and it gave a sudden jerk and died. It restarted fine, but took a couple tries to get it...

  18. 1996 Chrysler Town and Country

    1996 Town and Country with a 3.8L engine and only about 80K miles on it. The transmission won't shift into 4th gear. Is there something that might cause this that would be easy to fix, or will it require an overhaul?

    2000 T&C 3.8 just shy of 2 years and 22k miles ago, I had the typical coolant leak at the top of the timing cover .... the O-rings were toast. Spent a weekend fixing it with Mopar gasket set. Now, yesterday, it dumped 3 qts of oil during a 15-20 drive. Can plainly see the leak (more of a...
