2001 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.

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...

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...
