Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

problem #3

Oct 032008

Town & Country LXI 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 158,000 miles


I have some sort of electrical problem 1. cranks but won't start 2. windsield wipers go on and off by themselves 3. door locks go crazy (lock, unlock, lock, unlock) 4. engine stalls while driving (usually on highway)

now I can't even get the engine to turn over half of the time. I've installed a new fuel pump, fuel filter, crank sensor, cam sensor, a couple of different relays and nothing has helped. I've had it to 2 well respected mechanics and they can't figure it out. The check engine light is not on, and there are no trouble codes. Can anyone help?

Cranks but will not start. Finally after installing a new computer the van started up, but now runs only a short time and begins to backfire once it gets hot and will not run until cooled. We noticed that under the van there was a part that got really bright orange almost like it was on fire.

We've all ready put in a new fuel pump, a cam sensor and a new battery and have pulled it from one mechanic to another and finally back home. Nobody can find the problem!
