Newest reported Chrysler Town & Country problems
Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.
Often when replacing the front left wheel speed sensor, the wrong part is used (it's from a later model year). If the wrong sensor is used, it can damage the wheel speed sensor wiring.
The transmission has numerous problems; symptoms can range from shuddering to completely dying. The majority of the TSBs (service bulletins) require an overhaul of the transmission. Updated internal parts are available.
An intermittent loss of speed control can happen soon after the transaxle input or output speed sensor has been replaced. The problem is most likely caused by bad connectors.
An improperly-seated connection on the starter (coming from the battery) may cause the engine not to crank. Plastic must be ground off the cable terminal so it can sit flat and flush.
Due to corrosion at the pivot, the driver side window wiper may fail. The pivot must be replaced.
Often caused by rust, the temperature control lever may be difficult to move. Spray an anti-rust penetrate on the lower pivot for the lever and apply lubricant to prevent future corrosion.
Windows may not roll up or down, resulting in a "ratcheting" noise. This is often caused by the plastic ribbon gear (flex tracks) on the regulator that breaks. Flex tracks are easily replaced by removing the door trim panel.
During turning, squeaks can come from the strut area; the strut mount assembly should be replaced.
Worn seals inside the transmission may cause problems with upshifting and downshifting in automatic transmissions.
If the front hanger makes contact with the spring, you may hear a squeak in the rear suspension; this is often misdiagnosed as a problem with the leaf spring.
A faulty rear automatic temperature control (ATC) may cause problems with the instrument cluster illumination; the unit should be replaced.
On vehicles equipped with "stow and go" seating, the locking hinge might not hold when opening the load floor door. The middle floor doors should be replaced.
