  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. Window Issues

    I recently purchased a 99 Dodge Caravan as a work vehicle. All windows were in working order a few weeks ago and now only the driver side window will operate correctly. Drivers side window works like a champ. First the passenger side vent stopped working and stayed open for days. I was finally...

  2. Low fuel indicator on, needle all the way down....full tank

    As the title states, the gas tank is completely full, but the fuel indicator is all the way down. Sometimes, when you start it, it will go up one line but that is it. Low fuel indicator is on. Fuses have all been checked and battery has been reset. Any ideas what might be causing this? ...

  3. Alternator replacement BEFORE a failure

    Greetings everyone, I have a 2000 T&C Lxi (3.8l) with 126,000 (yes, a baby) that I put about 8,500 miles on per year, including our annual vacation in Estes Park CO driving from Houston via US 287-I25 Amarillo every May. In 2013 the clutch seized on the AC compressor so we finished the trip...

  4. 1996 Caravan issues- fuel/electrical problems.

    Hey all. Fiance's dad got her a 96 Caravan at auction with 120k on it for 600 dollars about 5 months ago. It started and ran fine without any hesitation. Engine has faint lifter noise but it's a 20 year old dodge. For some reason the headlights won't turn off, have to DC the battery every time the...

  6. Dodge Caravan rear heater lines/hoses/re-visited

    Further to your posts re the heater hoses for the Dodge Caravan, I have a further question, if you don't mind. Veh. 1999 Grand Caravan, 3.8 L The lines that carry the hot coolant from the engine to the rear heater and back, seem to be an engineers delight... start out from the engine as steel...

  7. Okay to leave radiator cap loose for long trip? Pinhole leak started yesterday.

    I'm leaving for a 330 mile one way (hopefully with a return trip) tomorrow in my 98 dodge grand caravan 3.3l flex fuel.

  8. What To Do When the Ignition Key Won't Turn

    You may never run into this problem, but I have met a few who have. I've even helped a few people get their van going again who were having this issue. When I first got my Caravan, a problem developed where I couldn't turn the ignition key. For about a week, I thought I was in trouble and...

  9. When is valve cover oil leak/seepage bad enough?

    This is probably a nutty question, but when is oil coming out of the valve covers bad enough to be worth taking things apart to replace gasket? This is a '99 TC @ about 180k, with no oil drops when parked on flat surface and maybe a couple of drops overnight if parked nose up on an incline. ...

  10. 99 Caravan with weird electrical problem

    Sporadically, while driving, the chime will start to ring, the right turn indicator will turn on, along with the right taillight. 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,...

  11. What does a P1721 code mean?

    Folks, My 98 Chrysler T&C Lxi with a 3.8 is now showing a P1721 code from the OBDII. Does anyone know what this means and the likely repair? I've seen references to needing a TCM code reader to get further info. Can anyone suggest a device that would read TCM codes? TIA Mark.

    1997 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.8 Ongoing trans fluid leak. I replaced both leaky transmission cooler lines, but that was only part of the problem.

  17. Noticable MPG drop after new cam and crank pos sensors installed.

    So my MPG probably averaged in the high 17's/ low 18's before my cam position sensor went T/U on me about 6 months ago. I had a shop install both cam AND crank position sensors just so I wouldn't have to think about when the next one would go out, and pretty much immediately noticed a drop in...
