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

  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. ...

  2. Starts but dies after one or two seconds

    For the first time today my town & country refused to stay runing after attempted start. I turned the key van fired and ran for a second and died. I have seen this discussed here a few times and know about the bad solder joints. I noticed a few things when all this was going down. 1. I did not...

  5. P1391 with a twist

    Hello, long time no post. My 1999 T&C 3.8 bucked a couple of times and died after I restarted it on a hot day. The twist is that it starts up fine, idles smoothly, and runs in reverse but as soon as I move the shift lever into a forward gear it cuts out immediately. It has thrown a P1391 code but...

  6. Dashboard Gauges Briefly Stopped Working - '98 Voyager

    Yesterday I started the engine and drove off. Noticed that the temp, speedometer, and gas gauge dials lay flat left at the 9:00 position. I was actually doing about 30 mph and with a full tank of gas. The digital odometer was out, too. Didn't think to test the horn. The radio, a/c, heater and...

  7. 97 DGC trouble with front suspension - strut mounts

    I've rebuilt the front suspension. I replaced all of the control arm bushings, the ball joints, outer tie rod ends, sway bar bushings, sway bar end links, and put new struts in - KYB GR2s (I think). My DGC is a Sport model, so it has the heavier springs. When I serviced the struts, the only...

  10. How the heck do I get the roof racks off???

    Hey guys In one of my many efforts to improve the fuel economy of my van, I thought it would be a good idea to remove the transverse bars of my roof racks. As I doubt I will never use them anyway, no great loss, and I am thinking that it will cut drag at least a little. Anyhow, had a look, and...

  13. Exclamation Is it possible to raise the front end an inch or two?

    I really need to know if it is possible to raise the front end of the 3rd generation vans up by one or two inches. They just ride a tad too low for my liking as it is right now, and if it is possible, regardless of what it takes I would at least like to look into the possibility. What I am not...

    The serpentine belt just popped today on my 97 Chry Town & Country minivan model LXI. How hard is it going to be to change the serpentine belt? I have done the water pump and alt belts on a 69 Chevy half ton pickup before. And can someone point me to some directions for doing this job?
