2001 Chrysler Town & Country Problems

Common causes include exhaust valve guides, valve cover gaskets, camshaft plugs, camshaft seals, and crankshaft seal.
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.
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.

The sliding doors never really worked consistently after about 10,000 m...
130K Mileas of German HGW are a good proving ground. Have yet to experience a single engine or transmission failure. To date had only to replace the right side window motor, spark plugs, and front sway bushings for slight vibrations. Guess I got lucky with my 2001 T&C but with the kind of 90+mph driving on german HGW at this confort level, this family car proved the best I had to date. Well don...
At 140,000-Great Van! It is excellent for short distance, road trips and everything in between. It is quiet, smooth ride and trouble free. No engine or transmission problems to report. Brakes do tend to pulse/vibrates under heavy use. I plan on installing drilled front rotors to prevent this problem in the future. The interior is great but I never liked the moveable center console. It d...
