Chrysler Pacifica ProblemsTicking Noise From Engine
The engine may develop a ticking noise, often caused by a broken retaining pin on the rocker arm shaft. When the pin breaks, the shaft can spin blocking the oil passage the rocker arms (which causes the ticking noise). The rocker arm shafts, rocker arms, and pedestals (sold as a kit) are commonly replaced in order to correct this condition.
Carbon buildup on the valves may illuminate the Check Engine Light, indicating "Multiple Cylinder Misfires." The combustion chamber must be cleaned of carbon. There are updated valve spring retainers that will help prevent a recurrence.
If the HVAC (heater) housing is not properly sealed at the bulkhead (firewall), water can leak into the passenger compartment. Foam sealant should be used to seal any gaps and the evaporator drain tube can be modified to prevent further water entry.
Chrysler Pacifica Questionscar bees every 30 seconds (1 answer)
After driving several miles my 2004 pacifica starts to beep - 3 beeps every 30 seconds and doesn't stop. No lights are on - engine or otherwise. Once I've stopped and the engine has been turned off for 5+ minutes and then start again it goes 5 miles or so before starting to beep again
I started the engine to verify that code had cleared and it had. 1 minute while still in park, the code returned...never took auto out of park...does this isolate the problem to a sensor??
It still want start sometimes I hit it and it will and now its doing nothing even after hitting i have a new battery and just puy a new alternator in what else could cause this vehicle to not start
Chrysler Pacifica RecallsThe Engine May Stall Due to Fuel Pump or PCM Fault
The fuel pump module and/or the powertrain control module (PCM) software may allow the engine to stall under certain operating conditions, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will reprogram the PCM and in some models, replace the fuel pump module to correct this concern. This recall is scheduled to begin on November 21, 2006. The Chrysler recall number is F44.
Vehicles equipped with halogen headlamps may experience an intermittent and eventual total loss of headlamp function. This could impair a driver's visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the low beam bulb and wiring harness on both headlamp assemblies. This recall is expected to begin on March 28, 2005. This Chrysler recall number is E04.
Certain vehicles equipped with the NGC-1 Powertrain Control Module may cause the engine to stall when a test of the Exhaust Gas Circulation (EGR) system is performed. This could cause a crash without warning. Dealers will reprogram the Powertrain Control Module software. The recall began March 15, 2004. The Chrysler recall number is D15.
