2008 Chrysler Pacifica Problems
The engine may develop a ticking noise, often caused by a broken retaining pin on the rocker arm shaft. When the pin breaks, the shaft can spin blocking the oil passage the rocker arms (which causes the ticking noise). The rocker arm shafts, rocker arms, and pedestals (sold as a kit) are commonly replaced in order to correct this condition.
Carbon buildup on the valves may illuminate the Check Engine Light, indicating "Multiple Cylinder Misfires." The combustion chamber must be cleaned of carbon. There are updated valve spring retainers that will help prevent a recurrence.
Static discharge and/or loose wire connections could cause problems with the front power seat memory, seat heaters, and adjustable pedals. Revised seat modules are available that resist the affects of static discharge.

Allow me to first say that I purchased my Chrysler Pacifica off the show floor on October 11, 2008 and I LOVE MY CAR! I have 2 more payments to go before I get the title! On August 10, 2014, I was going to see a movie and, although my car started, I couldn't put the car in reverse because it was stuck in PARK. I had just driven it the day before and it was great, as per usual. I called a loca...
I own a 2007 Pacifica Touring. Purchased it with 17,000 miles on it, as it was a rental vehicle. I have 104k on it now. It has leather seats, dual air, rear air, and a nice stereo.

Also, motor m...
