  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. 1999 Town and Country, bad idle. 3.8

    This is my 3rd Chrysler minivan, so call me crazy if you want! I have a problem with a stumbling idle, other than that it starts and runs not bad. 150K miles. I replaced crank sensor, cam sensor, throttle position sensor, fuel pump/sender,and MAP. No difference and still no codes. I get good...

  2. 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...

  3. For the past 10 years my mpg has been 12mpg for city driving.

    I have 2000 Town and Country Lxi , 3.8 engine with 195,000 miles. For the past 10 years my mpg has been 12 mpg for city driving. I always do slow smooth starts, moderate acceleration and slow smooth anticipated stops. Time spent at red lights is minimal and virtually no stop-and-go traffic....

  6. 99 T&C Hazard Fuse Keeps Blowing

    Hey All, My hazard fuse keeps blowing and I'm not sure of the cause. They work for a while, then suddenly stop. I have DRL with the auto-on headlights and have them switched on. I thought the Flasher was bad, so I changed that...no dice. Then I noticed there was a side marker light burned out,...

  7. A/C High Side service port

    It looks like I have a leak in the high side service port on my 2000 DGC. This valve does not use a schrader core, but instead uses a ball to seal the port. From what I have read the dealer will typically tell you that the whole high pressure line needs to be replaced, however, some people say that...

  8. Refrigerant Oil Capacity Spec Inconsistencies

    I'm changing the compressor on a 2000 GC. The vehicle has dual front and rear a/c. In researching the a/c oil capacity, it seems that the total oil capacity of the system differs depending on the source. Some say 13 ounces total capacity; others say 7.4 oz total capacity. For example, this link...

  9. Driver's seat drawer?

    I enjoy the one under the passenger's seat but I don't have one under the driver's seat. Just wondering if it came with one. I am not interested in retrofitting one if it didn't. Not motivated enough. Thanks!

  10. TC starts, dies then will not crank. All accessories work. Instrument panel. solder

    I have 2000 Town and Country Lxi , 3.8 engine with 195,000 miles. I am second owner and it had 140,000 when I bought it for $3,400 about ten years ago. About four months ago, I had the fuel pump replaced in a shoestring auto repair shop. The same day I had the battery replaced at Walmart. The...

  13. Transmission leaking

    Hello all, My transmission is leaking from the side cover. Is this something I can just un-bolt and pop off or will ball bearings and springs and stuff come flying out? I have been monitoring this since I got the van and after this winter it has gotten worse, plus I leave a stain wherever I go....

  14. 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...

  15. Damaged Wheel Stud

    I forgot to torque down my passenger side wheel when I let it down and got the classic rumble noise that lets you know your wheel is about to fall off. As a result, I damaged one or 2 of the studs. I think that the damage is probably repairable with a die based upon my experience. However, I...

  16. Looking for heavy duty suspension

    I changed my suspension at about 240,000km. Now at 303,000 and they are due. This is driving on Quebec roads though, a little more harsh than many other places. I'm looking for something on the heavy duty side just to protect everything else from the constant pounding the van takes on these...

  17. Leaking PS fluid

    Some of you might remember my PS pump saga. In the end, after destroying a few pulleys and remanufactured pumps I chose a used one. Unfortunately, I now have an annoying leak. Some advised that I put dye in the PS reservoir in an attempt to find the leak and so I did. Here are 2 pics of the...

  18. New BCM smells of cigarettes!

    I used to fix Chrysler BCMs and hated when they came in smelling of cigarette smoke. The BCM that I bought fixes my problem but it stinks of cigarettes! I am terrified to spray anything on the PCB that could be conductive. Should I just let it air out a few days? LOL! I am sensitive to...

  19. 2000 TC 3.8, rough idle= fuel pump issue?

    I've posted about this issue before, but it's been a long time and some of what I know has changed over the year that I've had the van. The van runs fine at highway speeds, but sometimes runs rough at low speeds (like foot of the gas in a parking lot speed) or during extended periods of idling....
