  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. 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. ...

  2. 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,...

  3. 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.

  6. 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...

  7. HIDs LEDs whatever....need brighter headlights

    I don't mean to turn this into a junkshow of people arguing in this thread or trying to derail the post because HID bulbs don't belong in reflective housings. I am at my last tether with bulbs and lighting in this van. I have previously owned quad headlight minivans and the lighting was no...

  8. Identify source of trans leak

    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. I've attached photos of another source of the leak (solenoid pack?). I'm guessing that it is the solenoid pack, but I want to be sure, as I understand...

  9. 99 lower strut collar rusted and spring is lose against tire

    The lower collar rusted through and the spring is resting on the tire. There is much room in there to get a spring compressor in there so how do I get the tire off without incident?

  10. 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...

  16. Engine backfires on acceleration

    My 1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager just started bucking and backfiring through the intake, at first only after warming up, now all the time. No codes set so I assumed the ECM and replaced it. It still runs bad but now has set P0132 and P0138. I replaced both the O2 sensors and no change. Any ideas...

  17. Swapping Power Steering Pump fluid with Turkey Baster?

    Just wanted to know if I kept swapping the reservoir fluid out drive after drive whether or not I'd eventually be able to replace almost all of the fluid. As some of you may know, I had a TERRIBLE time with a PS pump situation prompting me to buy a used PS pump just to break even. The pump is in...

  18. Intermittent wipers Stop working in the rain 98 T&C

    I have '98 T&C. When I turn the intermittent wipers on they will work and then after a minute or so will stop working. When I turn off of intermittent for a while and then back, they will work again for 30-60 seconds then stop again. The slow and high speed constant wiper settings work all the...

  19. '96 Grand Voyager (3.3) surging under load, random stalls

    Our 3.3L 1996 Grand Voyager started having some intermittent issues a few months ago. Everything started with some random misfire codes (about once every 500-1000 miles). It would also occasionally (maybe once every week) surge very slightly while accelerating. I checked plugs, coil, wires, etc....

  20. Headlights stay on all the time

    Wondering if anyone has run into this problem: 98 Grand Caravan. At some point several years ago, all the exterior lights started coming on automatically when the ignition was turned on. Headlights stay on even when turn the light switch to parking lamps only. Not a big problem, except now there...
