  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: What's the mileage on your 5th generation?

    Since the 3rd and 4th generations have a thread about mileage, and I just hit a milestone on my 2009, I decided to start this thread for 5th generation owners. I hope the "High Milers Club" still exist, I want to get the 200,000 mile license plate frame.

  3. Sticky Thread Sticky: 2010 DGC 4.0L timing belt, water pump, and spark plug change write up

    Our 2010 DGC 4.0 V6 just crossed 101,000 miles so it was high time to replace the timing belt, and spark plugs while I was in there. Turns out, removing the spark plugs while doing the belt service makes it that much easier. There's not much on the old intarwebs about the 4.0 V6. There's a bit...

  2. DIY 62TE transmission replacement?

    Anyone replace their 62TE themselves? I found a handful of gear teeth and a lot of shavings in the transmission pan when I changed the fluid and filter. When I back up over the one inch concrete lip to my garage I get a shudder and it feels like the transmission is slipping. Forward seems fine...

    Hi All, I own a 2008 Grand Caravan 3.8L SXT with 185,000 miles on it. A problem just started where when the outside temperature is above 70 degrees, the engine is very hard to restart if it sat for about 5-15 minutes after being fully warmed up using the tip start feature.

  4. Intermittent starter not turning until 2nd or 3rd try on push button start

    Maybe once a week it won't start on the first try. I can hear the starter try to turn for a split second. Then it starts normally. No ticking and the battery is new and good so it's not the battery. Could there be anything else other than the starter dying? I want to replace it before I get stuck...

  5. any 2017 GT owners out there?

    Found very low mileage 2017 GT at a good price, but it's 175 miles away, so I can't just buzz over for a test drive. One thing I'm concerned about is the so-called performance suspension the GT comes with. I now have a 2013 with the standard suspension, and it rides fairly stiff. I'm wondering...

  6. Will disconnecting the battery reset the learning of the PCM?

    Some say yes and some say no. I don't know who to believe. But I went ahead and disconnected the battery. So I guess I'll find out if I can tell any difference. Anyone know for certain?

  7. 2014 Grand Caravan Transmission Filler Tube

    Hi folks, For the life of me, I cannot find the transmission filler tube. I bought a dipstick to use, knowing the 2014 GC does not have a dipstick, but there appears to be no filler tube. Does anything else have a 2014 that can direct me as to where the trans filler tube is? Thank you.

  8. Recall notice

    I got a Safety Recall notice in the mail, but going to FCA website and putting in my VIN shows no recalls. The card doesn't say what the recall is for. Anyone heard of a recall for these vans. Yes, I will contact the dealer today.

  10. 62te - transmission hardshifting

    My transmission was rebuilt last year and ever since it was rebuilt it shifts hard between 2nd and 3rd gear only on the upshift. I have had it reflashed recently and it helps smooth out the shift for a for short period of time but it is back again. Looking for a fix.

    We have a 2014 T&C with 46K miles on it. The chain-like wiring at the bottom of one of the power doors broke.
