Having problems with your Chrysler Town & Country ?

Town and country slow to start

\015 Initially van started to miss while driving. Went to local shop to have fuel filter put on. They noticed piece was broken from fuel pump and said it was trying to pull air and anything else in to engine and this caused engine to miss. New filter and pump put on, 1 week later, engine was slow to start ( following sitting for a while, overnight etc.). Eventually, ( like 2 days later) low fuel chime went off and needle was going crazy( had 3/4 of a tank). Shop put new pump on ( it was under warranty) Vehicle started up like a champ and ran well until I hit around 60-65 and started to miss. Took back to shop and they siphoned some gas out and showed me there was water in gas. Ok, after all that, my question is this: If the problem with the slow starts was the gas, why did it start up like a champ following both fuel pumps being put on? Also shop checked fuel pressure at engine and said it was fine.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

On a 2003 Town & Country, it was shifting hard into first gear. Mileage 135,000 Sometimes it would act like it was cutting out and could not decide what gear to shift in. I took it in and had the transmission fluid and filter changed. It still does the same thing. It seems to shift hard when starting out slow.


When was your last tune up? with that kind of mileage it could be possible that the transmission itself has wear and tear that a fluid and filter will not help. How does the car idle etc. Have you had the problem diagnosed by a professional mechanic ... 2003 Chrysler Town & Country

94 Chrysler Town and Country won't start with key. Battery and cable connections are good. 12 volts directly to the starter solenoid starts the engine. All gages come on turning key to start position but only a click and no start. Replaced ignition switch and starter relay - no change. Traced 12V wire from starter solenoid to fuse box and the starter relay and wire is good. Applying 12 volts to the socket of the starter relay results in starting the engine. Is this a failure of the PCM?
