2008 Chrysler Pacifica Problems

Check Engine Light Due to Carbon Buildup on Valves

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.

"urk urk uurrk" noise in rear of vehicle after driving a few miles, with one side of vehicle being 3/4" lower than the other side.

As described in the title, my Pac (fwd) developed a low pitched noise seemingly related to minor road undulations, noticeable especially after driving the car for a few miles, and more noticeable when the air temp was above 80 degrees F. The driver side rear of the car was measured at the wheel well to be sitting about 3/4" lower than the passenger side. I suspected a shock, but giving it the static "bounce test" did not seem to be overly bad...

Ticking Noise From Engine

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.

2008 Chrysler Pacifica Reviews

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. I have owned this car for 5 years, and the only problems I have had is the "skreem" module failed at 45k, leaving me stranded in my driveway, and the dreaded shifter link spring that broke at 100k. Also, motor m...
Unfortunately, we have most every review beat... We purchased our '06 Pacifica in late '09 with low miles. We loved the look and the 50/50 rear seats for our growing family of 5 (now 6) It started with our engine blowing in 2011, that repair cost us a cool 5k. Shortly after that, the A/C went out in the middle of summer where our temps reach up into the 100's. Luckily a family friend fixed ...
