  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...

  1. Just changed rear brake and rotor and its got to the touch, burning smell

    The right rear is a lot hotter and smells like rubber burning. Just got off the freeway and it's hot to the touch. Twice as hot as the other three. I thought the smell was just the rotor coating like the fronts I did a week ago and that it would go away. On this wheel the caliper piston rubber...

  2. Wink Heater Core Leaking

    My heater core is leaking on my 2008 T&C 3.8L (189,000 miles) and I was wondering if anyone has seen a DIY or done it before. The quick searches I've done say the A/C lines have to be disconnected and the adjustable pedals have to be removed, or at least the brake pedal. Is it easy to do or should...

  4. Unexpected passive door unlock

    Earlier I was approaching the van, which has the keyless entry where you put your hand in either front door handle and it unlocks if you have the fob with you, whatever that is called. Well I was opening a sliding door, and without thinking to slip my hand in the front door handle first to unlock,...

  5. Question 2010 3.3L only getting 13.5 mpg combined

    We recently bought a 2010 T&C 3.3L with 75K miles. We took it on a trip up to the mountains and when I refilled the tank I was dismayed that we only got 13.5 mpg on the way up. Two thirds of these miles were completely flat. On the way back it still only scored about 15, and hasn't done any better...

  6. Squeaky sliding door

    Apologies if this question has been posted before, but I couldn't find anything in the thread search. We recently purchased a 2011 Grand Caravan from a government surplus auction. It had pretty low mileage (kilometereage?) and was a good deal, but there's a persistent high pitched squeaking and...

  11. Spark plug replacement 5th gen vs. 4th gen

    So I just replaced the plugs in my 2009 3.8L. It took about an hour. My old van, a 2006, was a much messier affair. I just want to express my thankfulness to whomever gave that extra space under the hood. Even the O2 sensor looks easy to replace.

  12. Checking Trans fluid level

  14. What Gen 5 Should I Get?

    Thinking about finally trading up from my 2002 T&C to a generation 5 minivan (can't afford a new Pacifica). I understand that the first Gen 5 vans had the old 3.8 OHV and 4.0 SOC engines after which the newer 3.2 Pentastar engines were used. Which year is considered best among the Gen 5 minivans?...

  15. Passenger slider won't lock

    2012 Grand Caravan. The passenger slider lock won't move - it's stuck in the unlocked position. Is this most likely a failed actuator? The lock on the other side, however, can be engaged or disengaged easily by hand. The passenger side one won't budge.

  18. 2012 T&C starting to make a new sound at 28 mph and 56 mph

    My 2012 T&C has started to make a low pitch sound at 28 mph and 56 mph. The sound is as if there were a motorcycle along side. The sound happens on the straight road and on left curves, but not on right curves. What would cause this? 55,000 miles.

  20. 2011 Chrysler Town and Country

    Van initially had trouble starting. Now after driving for about 5 minutes all the dash lights come on and the RPM's go crazy and the van loses power. Doesn't stall, but no acceleration ability.
