  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. ...

  8. Is there a high volume oil pump available for the Mitsubishi 3.0? only 7lbs at idle

    I have nearly 200,000 miles on my 3.0. I recently put new heads on and my old heads had at least 1 collapsed lifter. When the engine is hot the oil pressure is about 7lbs at idle running 5-30 synth. Is this enough oil pressure? If not, is there a high volume oil pump available for the 3.0 V6?

When you apply the brakes, the back up lights go on with the brake lights. During this period, neither emergency flashers or turn signals work. Turning the van off,...

  16. Voyage 4 cyl Idle Too Fast - Fixed w/ photos

    My 1996 4 cyl 2.4L started throwing a code 6 months ago about idle speed out of target range. At that time, I changed the IAC valve ($10 ebay), though the last one appeared to work when connected (feel pulses, stem moves). Seemed to fix, but it was an erratic condition. BTW, if you run w/ the IAC...
