1999 Chrysler Town & Country Problems

Excessive oil consumption—defined as more than one quart per 1,000 miles (on vehicles with less than 50,000 miles) or more than one quart per 750 miles (on vehicles with more than 50,000 miles)—is common. Common causes include exhaust valve guides, valve cover gaskets, camshaft plugs, camshaft seals, and crankshaft seal.

Intermittently, the key may not start the car or release from the ignition. If it is excessively worn, replace the key. If the new key doesn't work, replacing the lock cylinder including tumblers should correct this concern.

Worn sway bar bushings or sway bar end links may cause a rattling or clunking noise from the front suspension during low-speed driving. Though not always the root cause, front struts are often replaced for this condition.

1999 Chrysler Town & Country Reviews

This all-wheel drive van has been incredible to say the least. I can honestly say that I have 132,000 miles on it and no problems with it. It has never even needed an alternator, starter, or a water pump replaced. The A/C is still cold and only charged it once myself. This van goes like hell in the snow, right up hills of western pennsylvania with no problem. It even looks pretty good for what...

I bought this used and have had problems since from the transmission to the brakes. Cant say whether that is because of the vehicle or from the previuos owner though. It does have a comfortable ride . Takes a long while to warm up on those cold morings.
