2001 Chrysler Town & Country Problems

Shifting Harshness and Shuddering Issue

Shifting harshness and shuddering issues related to the operation of the automatic transmission have been addressed by factory service bulletins. The shuddering can feel like the vehicle is being driven over rumble strips.

Reasons for Excess Oil Consumption

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.

Key May Not Start Car or Release From Ignition

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.

2001 Chrysler Town & Country Reviews

We own a 2001 LXI AWD and with less than 40,000 miles on it one thing after another failed. It spent more weeks in the shop than out during the summer months. It started with the CV joint failure, then the ignition column, then the whole drive train/transmission and then the coolant lines and finally the steering system. The sliding doors never really worked consistently after about 10,000 m...
