  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. ...

  3. DO NOT BUY THESE KATUR LED's Otherwise, you will lose your lights on a 3rd gen.

    I just had a great time with some LED's I got from amazon. I can tell you full well, I AM NEVER going to trust non name brand LED ever! First lets start off with this: I did not know it at the time, but I was shorting out my electrical system. So now, I have almost all my lights...

  4. 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...

  9. 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...

    Hi Guys, My 2000 Caravan 3.3L has just over 88,000 miles on it and has a noisy lifter (tappet) but only once it's warmed up. It is not there at all when I first start the engine. It's just about due for an oil change. Is there anything I should add to the oil before the change or after that...

    I have a 1997 Town & Country 3.8 LXi with a Braun Wheelchair conversion. A while back I notice the parking lights were on after I got out of the van.

  14. Lots of problems after pulling the headliner.

    I recently pulled the headliner because it was sagging. This isn't my first time doing a headliner, but I have never done one on a larger vehicle. As a result, I have some unusual problems after pulling the headliner. Part of the reason that I was pulling the headliner was to install an overhead...

  15. 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...

    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? ...

  18. Angry 1997 Grand Caravan... not sure where to start

    So, years ago we got this 1997 Grand Caravan with a 3.8L, and IIRC it had blown head-gaskets. We had another '96 Plymouth Voyager with a 3.3L and a bad tranny that we decided to cut up and scrap. So we pulled the 3.3L and tranny out of the '96 and replaced the 3.8L engine with the 3.3L, but...

  20. Other than headlights or key in ignition, what activates the drivers door chime?

    This happens even if the car has been parked for days. The ignition switch was checked and replaced and determined not to be the problem. In addition if the engine isn't running, anytime any door is opened the parking lights come on and don't go off when the door is shut. This did NOT always...
