  1. Oil pan gasket

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Should be quite easy based on the previous Generation 3.3L/3.8L. Might want to consider a FelPro gasket, no sealant or RTV required. HOW TO INSTALL GASKETS - CLEAN & DRY https://www.felpro.com/technical/tecblogs/clean-dry.html My experience/discussions on the job...
  2. Aftermarket Scissor jack and jacking points?

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Haven't looked at my 2016 GC's jack yet, but previous Generations had a 3/4" nut to turn.

    Hard to fathom a booming economy when businesses are shutting down, or going elsewhere. Something wrong with the picture or it's a boom for some and a big bust for most. Carlton Cards, Papyrus stores in North America to close within weeks...
  4. Best silicone wiper blades?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Hey imickey. where have you been hiding out for the past several months? Missed your input on the Forum and the progress reports on your van. Your new avatar is an improvement though. Ha, ha. :)
  5. Oil Changes

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Isn't that like throwing away a loaf of bread before its due date? :) 3,000 miles could become 6,000 miles and you would still be throwing away some edible slices. 🍞🥪
  6. Time for new tires

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    That's a good observation and an important one when considering winter driving. When using all season tires for winter driving years back, Canadian Tire had an A/S SE tire, made by Kelly/Goodyear that fit the bill very well. Open tread blocks provided more snow grip than most other all season...

    Did you see the pictures LEVY posted, some time back, of gas flowing in ditches in Mexico. You wouldn't want to light up there. :)
  9. Best silicone wiper blades?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    How do you set those up FabricGATOR. Why not just use the racquets? :) I have seen slit tennis balls used for floor protectors on the bottom of chair legs. I guess your Great Grandpa didn't have a windshield on his carriage. :)
  10. Aftermarket Scissor jack and jacking points?

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Scissors jacks are fairly flimsy tools anyway. Improper use makes them worse, hence the complaints. They don't like sideways forces, you have to block the wheels. I have one from an old 1981 K-Car, which is in good shape, and can be used for the vans. It's flimsy and I am very careful using...
  11. OBD scanner for Caravan

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Information for the scanner should tell you what vehicles it works on and what it does. For example the Innova 3100j at Compatibility Checker Using 2002 Chrysler Voyager: Works for Check Engine, ABS and Airbags

  13. Don't do transmission service on my 2012 Town & Country?

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    The transmission shop was making a recommendation based on the transmission being bad, i.e. no sense throwing $700.00, or whatever, at it. Yes, the ATF+4 transmission fluid consists of a synthetic base oil, with an additive package in it. The additive package contains a portion called friction...
  14. Don't do transmission service on my 2012 Town & Country?

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    The Dealership is upselling you TERRIBLY. The Service Manager likely is working on commission. A couple of things to show the Upseller alias "Shyster": - from a Chrysler Service Bulletin on ATF+4: Actually ATF+4 smells like crap. - Chrysler doesn't recommend flushes except for coolant. At...
  15. Why did my tires wear out so quickly?

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    How much do you charge? I'll drop by and get mine filled up. Does the robot J.U.N.O. sign autographs? Where's Achmed these days. Hope he's not left out in the cold. :)
  16. oil change reminder?? How does it work?

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Who changed your oil last time, how many miles was on the oil, and did they reset the monitoring system? Sounds like they didn't. That just happened recently to a friend of mine, at an Acura Dealership..
  17. Aftermarket Scissor jack and jacking points?

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Junk yard should have lots of the Chrysler minivan jacks, just waiting to be picked up. Rockauto sells one like yours: Garage Equipment Jack Scissor Jack Parts | RockAuto That large bottom gives stability but only on a uniform surface. Your jack should be able to lift one corner, likely even...

    You are a party man, in a couple of ways. :) Have fun. Pour the rest of that drink.

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Jack points have a SAE inverted triangle shaped symbol locating them. https://www.chryslerminivan.net/threads/jack-points-for-08-t-c.149393/#post-1494529 A regular scissors jack should work at these points. My choice scissors jack is an RV jack with a reinforced (against splitting) block of...
