2009 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.

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.

At the top sliding hinge. The door you can lift up and it has movement about 1 inch or so. The other door does not have this. Is this a adjustment issue or is something wore out? Thanks for the help.

2009 Chrysler Town & Country Recalls

If the ignition key unexpectedly moves to the OFF or ACCESSORY position, the engine will turn off. This will depower various safety systems including but not limited to airbags, power steering, and power braking. Loss of functionality of these systems may increase the risk of crash and/or injury in the event of a crash. The weight of extra items on the ignition key ring can be a contributing factor to this unexpected occurrence. Until this recall is completed customers are advised to remove all other items from the ignition key ring. Dealers will modify the ignition switch to correct this concern.

Vehicles without the optional blind spot detection system still have the wiring installed to support that system. This wiring, unused, could become corroded and cause an electrical short. This may cause various electrical concerns, and even a fire hazard. Dealers will seal off the connectors. The Chrysler recall number is J01. This recall began on March 9, 2009.

Front right OE brake pad deeply scared at only 23K miles. Caused deep damage to the rotor, but was salvageable with resurfacing. Will have to buy a new rotor next pad change. Wonder what good brand to buy and what fits??

rear tail lights do not flash when unlock is keyed from remote.
